It’s a no-brainer that one of the fun and exciting part of planning your wedding is choosing your wedding cakes. The great opportunity of tasting and sampling slices of different delicious cakes before you finally decided on who to bake it for you. However, before you get carried away tasting th delicious cakes take some time to imagine what you would like the wedding cake of your dreams to look like.
There are many decisions for wedding cakes as you can either have a complex or simple decoration – but whatever you settle for, it all depends on the baker creativity you choose to have its artistic distinction.
Because a wedding cake is an essential part of the celebration, here are a few tips for buying the perfect wedding cake.
• Plan Well in Advance
Plan all details of the marriage well in advance. The reason is that there are some types of bakers or custom shops that need to be notified early. If you are planning a wedding in the peak season, 12 months notice may be required from the day a cake order is placed to the date of your event.
• Choose Cake Style to Match Wedding Plans
Take time and ask yourself about the type of wedding you plan on having, and how many guests you are expecting. Also, will the event be indoor or outdoor or the overall theme will be contemporary, formal, informal, or traditional? This is the questions you should ask yourself as they will be helpful for discussions with the bakery.
• Look at Wedding Cake Pictures
Another way to make the best choice when choosing a wedding cake is to check pictures of the past project the baker has done. Save images you may want to incorporate and browse magazines and books at libraries and bookstores, and look at photo galleries on the internet.
• Research Local Baking Talent
If you are fortunate, word of mouth leads will come from friends and family. Choose a baker within a reasonable distance from your wedding venue. On the big day, the freshly baked creation will have to be transported and set up, so it cannot come from miles away.
• Making the Final Decision
Also, before you make the final decision, try to book a few consultations with different bakers. With an experienced consultant, choosing a wedding cake will be exciting. Take your ideas to the consultation interview, browse catalogues, look at mock-ups and sample fresh cake. Liking a designer's work is crucial, but it is equally important to know that your preferences and requests will be heard.
There you go. Hopefully, these tips can help you prepare and buy elegant cakes on time.
