Placing a Cake Order

ORDER EARLY! Ordering early is the best way to ensure you’ll have the cake of your dreams for your wedding day. Making cakes of specific sizes and details can take time. Not only that, but during peak wedding season, many bakers will have their hands full with orders. Ordering within 6 months of your wedding is recommended, but to be safe, consider ordering as soon as you figure out your venue, colors, dress, etc. Doing so takes stress off yourself and the baker, giving them time to create the cake you’ve always wanted.

Don’t Choose For Everyone Else

When I say don’t choose for everyone else, I mean your cake flavors. Many people often think, “Vanilla and chocolate, everyone eats that.” However, it’s not about what they want but what you and your future spouse prefer. When you meet with bakers, taste every flavor, filling, or icing that you find interesting. Don’t be afraid to try something different, as long as the cake tastes amazing!

Choose a Cake That’s Compatible

Make sure your cake matches the theme and style of your wedding. Before meeting with a baker, you should choose your important details, such as venue, dress, season, flowers, and menu. After you’ve figured out the basics, maybe bring some inspirational photos or sketches if you want something unique.

Have a Budget in Mind

When choosing your cake, make sure you have a budget in mind. Having a budget gives you an idea of what type of cake you can expect for your wedding and allows you to look for vendors in your price range. Just like a dress, you never want to go over your budget for your cake or go in blind when meeting with vendors.

Have a Delivery Plan

Cakes can be heavy and are a lot of work to move around, especially if you have tiers. Most of the time, they need a refrigerated van, so it is super important to have a delivery plan. Make sure you discuss delivery methods with your baker. Not all cakes come in their final form, and you don’t want to be stuck trying to put a puzzle together on your wedding day. Also, ensuring that your cake has a refrigerated space after arrival is essential.
