Choosing your wedding cake is not an easy task. Due to the several options available, you could get a little over whelmed. Although all cakes may not appeal to you, narrowing down your options can help to a certain extent. The presentation of the cake is prime here as it will be the main focus of the wedding after the couple. Your wedding album will be filled with pictures of people around the cake, and form memories for a lifetime. It’s clear, if you want your guests to be impressed by your wedding cake, you must take a little extra effort in choosing your wedding cake. Here a few helpful tips to help you choose yours:
1. Plan For Your Wedding Cake Well In Advance.
Waiting till the last week is a bad idea. Generally couples begin planning for the wedding cake three to six months prior to the wedding. This gives you plenty of time to think about the design, flavor and size and then look around for the right bakery.
2. Think About The Design
Nowadays couples like to match the cake design to the theme of their wedding. For example, if you plan to have a beach themed wedding, the cake would have star fish, sea shells and more of such fun elements to it. A royal themed wedding would call for cake in royal colours and smooth finishes with embellishments. It’s completely up to your creativity and preferences. On the other hand you could also request the services of a cake designer for suggestions.
3. Figure Out The Size
The size and tiers of the cake would mostly depend on the size of your wedding. How many guests do you plan to invite? More the guests, more the tiers you many want.
4. Decide On A Budget
Be practical about your requirements and your budget. Think whether you really need the fourth tier on your wedding cake or the hand-made sugar flowers or velvet finish on your wedding cake. Excluding anything that is not required can help you cut costs without compromise on your idea of a dream cake.
5. Choose A Reputed Bakery
This may call for some visits to some of the best bakeries in town. In the end it’s going to be worth it. Once you have decided on the style, design and budget, it becomes easier to choose the cake vendor who delivers as per your given parameters. Take time to discuss your requirements with them and keep looking until you are convinced about a particular vendor.
6. Taste The Cake
Isn’t this the best part? Taste different kinds of cake to choose one flavor that you love the most. If you wish to have layers of different flavours ensure that you taste them too! It is necessary to know what you are getting on the inside (of the cake) too.
7. Mistakes To Avoid
You have planned and decided on your wedding cake but haven’t ordered it yet? Do not wait till the last minute to order your wedding cake. Customization and decoration takes considerable time and efforts. Therefore, ensure that you give at least a few weeks time for your baker to plan and create your wedding cake. Secondly, avoid taking suggestions from too many people. More the people, more the confusion. Choose the cake that feels good to you. Period.
As much as we have seen and experienced wedding preparations, the wedding cake has always taken the priority over the desserts and other food. Hence, it’s a good idea to dedicate some time to choosing your ideal wedding cake and order what appeals best to you.
