The cake is such a uniquely challenging part of planning any wedding, since it has to both look wonderful and taste great. As you make your selection, learn the characteristics you should seek out (as well as the ones you need to avoid). Visit us at Art Eats Bakery
Do: Your Homework
HINT: An easy way to personalize your cake is to monogram it. Having you wedding monogram written in scroll-like royal icing on the middle tier or onto an oval piece of fondant and framed with sugar pearls on the bottom tier.
Do: Book Your Wedding Cake Bakery EarlyCake bakers should be booked four to six months before your wedding, though some reputable bakers are hired up to a year in advance. If you have someone in mind, don’t wait. Secure their services now then nail down the specifics later. They will allow a save the date deposit for this purpose. Some reception sites may require you to use their catering services, but stringent cake rules are less common.One of our bride’s ideas was a four tier square fondant wedding cake with royal icing designs, purple ribbons, and hydrangeas. The fondant is off white and the royal icing is white, so the designs show up more.
Do: Schedule a Time to Cut the Wedding Cake
HINT: If you cut the cake toward the end of the evening, you could opt to serve an additional dessert with the cake slices. Choose something light, like sorbet for a summertime wedding or chocolate mousse in the fall or winter.
Do: Get Wedding Cake Baker References Find a cake baker who can deliver precisely what you want within your budget. Do some research. Ask recent brides whose cakes you liked for suggestions and check bakers’ websites to see if there’s a cake similar to what you’re seeking or ask if the can make a custom cake design for you. Check out their reviews.
HINT: Before you place an order, your cake contract should include contact info for the vendor; wedding date, time, and delivery location; delivery and setup fees; total amount due; cake design specifications and flavors; plus their cancellation and refund policies. Do: Eat a Piece of Your Wedding CakeCouples often don’t get a chance to eat their own wedding cake. Ask your caterer to save some for you. Share it with your new spouse as a snack that night or taste it at the post wedding brunch. You deserve to enjoy the cake you worked so hard to help create.
HINT: If you’re planning to keep your top tier for your one-year anniversary, make sure that your caterer wraps it in tin foil and packs it into a tight storage container for the freezer.Another of our bride’s chose a three tier round fondant wedding cake with embossed diamonds and sugar pearls.
Don’t: Overdo the Wedding Cake Add Ons
Flowers and other additions like polka dots and stripes are great, but use them in moderation. Whether you’re going for large sugar flowers like tulips or small ones like baby violets, don’t overwhelm the cake. Make sure your cake design allows for breathing room on the top or bottom tiers so your cake doesn’t look smothered. Remember that simplicity can be beautiful.
HINT: Sugar flowers can be beautiful whether molded into something small and dainty or large and lush. When it come to fresh flower, stick with the heartier blooms like roses, dahlias, and calla lilies, which are less likely to wilt and more likely to hold up during the evening.
Don’t: Choose an Inedible Wedding Cake Color. You want your wedding cake to coordinate with your wedding day colors, but remember it’s a dessert that your guests will be eating. Instead of a bold red cake with gold accents, go for a white or chocolate cake with a few red and gold accents so it will taste better. If you’re having a blue and green wedding, for the best flavor, get a white cake with blue ribbon trim, or ask your baker for green-frosted accents or flowers. Darker colors can still be achieved by airbrush techniques that use less color.
HINT: Consider your frosting options when choosing a color. Both butter cream and fondant can be dyed just about any basic shade, but you’ll get a wider color spectrum with fondant.
Don’t: Forget About TransportationMost bakeries offer either pick-up or delivery, some offer both. When picking up a cake consider the type of vehicle used to transport the cake, SUV’s and vans work the best. We provide a non slip mat to place under your cake to prevent movement. Remember that the speed you go is not so much the issue; braking and taking turns at a high speed are the main concerns in transporting a cake. A wedding cake can be used to reflect on moments captured in pictures throughout your courtship and/or your lives. We can transfer them to sugar paper and edible ink.
