Important questions for your wedding cake baker

A stun­ning and deli­cious wed­ding cake holds a prime spot on any bride’s check­list. Yet, did you real­ize there’s more to con­sid­er beyond the price and design when search­ing for your dream wed­ding cake?

Before con­firm­ing your choice of bak­er, it’s essen­tial to delve into the logis­tics and tech­ni­cal­i­ties that con­tribute to craft­ing your flaw­less cake.

Here are 5 key ques­tions to dis­cuss with your wed­ding cake maker:

1 — How many oth­er cakes are sched­uled for my date?

Cre­at­ing wed­ding cakes is a sub­stan­tial time invest­ment for bak­eries. This dura­tion hinges on both the cake’s size and the intri­ca­cy of your cho­sen design. Instead of sole­ly inquir­ing about date avail­abil­i­ty, find out the num­ber of oth­er cakes booked for the same day. Their response will pro­vide insight into the amount of time they can give to your cake. If they appear to be over­booked, they might not be the right fit for you.

2 — How far in advance do you pre­pare wed­ding cakes?

Giv­en the con­sid­er­able time required for craft­ing wed­ding cakes, it’s cus­tom­ary for cakes to be pre­pared ahead of time to accom­mo­date busy sched­ules. The clos­er the cake’s cre­ation is to your wed­ding day, the fresh­er it will taste and the longer it will endure post-cel­e­bra­tion. If you intend to serve the cake to your guests as dessert, con­sid­er seek­ing a bak­er who can cre­ate the cake as close to your date as feasible.

3 — Can your cakes be customised?

While some bak­eries embrace their clients’ cre­ative input and col­lab­o­rate to design their dream cakes, oth­ers might have a pre­de­ter­mined menu of styles and designs. In cas­es where cus­tomi­sa­tion isn’t an option, request to view their port­fo­lio to gauge their style’s com­pat­i­bil­i­ty with your vision.

4 — Are there any addi­tion­al charges to be aware of?

It’s impor­tant to have a trans­par­ent con­tract out­lin­ing all fees, along with con­firmed details such as the deposit, final pay­ment, and tast­ing atten­dance lim­its. Check you have all the costs before you agree to move for­ward with your order.

5 — How will my cake be deliv­ered to the venue, or is col­lec­tion required?

Trans­port­ing the cake from the bak­ery to your venue, along with set­up, is a ser­vice pro­vid­ed by cer­tain bak­eries. Oth­ers may require you to arrange pick­up and deliv­ery inde­pen­dent­ly. This aspect of wed­ding plan­ning requires its own care­ful prepa­ra­tion. Pri­or to the big day, speak with your bak­er about the specifics. If pick­up is your respon­si­bil­i­ty, ask your bak­er for advice on trans­port­ing the cake to main­tain its flaw­less appearance.
