At the ceremony, all eyes are on the bride. At the reception, it’s all about the cake. The cake serves as a centerpiece as well as dessert, so you want to make sure it’s beautiful and delicious! With smart planning and an expert baker, you’re sure to end up with sweet results and the best wedding cakes Vancouver has to offer.
Some bakeries are booked well in advance, so ordering your cake should be close to the top of your wedding’s “to do” list. Here are some tips to make your choice a piece of cake.
Choose a cake that matches your style. There’s nothing wrong with a 3 tiered white cake, but if you want something a little different, put together a palette of your wedding colors and flowers to bring when you meet with the baker.
Gather some ideas! Browse through magazines and websites for inspiration. Check out the latest trends. Cupcakes are popular, or maybe you want cascading flowers or polka dots for a touch of whimsy. Pick your favorites and bring photos to show the baker.
Find your baker. Ask friends, read online reviews and testimonials to make sure you choose a well-established, experienced bakery with a good reputation. Once you have a few you’re considering, make an appointment to meet the baker. Book a taste test if available.
Meet with the baker. Besides choosing cake flavors, icings, fillings and decoration there are some important issues that need to be addressed. How and when will the cake be delivered? Is there set-up required? Also, budget. Get the full price, including set-up and delivery. How much deposit is required?
Sign a contract. Once you’ve made your decision, secure your baker! If you wait too long, they might get booked up.
Once your cake is ordered you can plan other things like, where will you display the cake? When will you cut it? Did you get a cake knife for your bridal shower, or do you need one?
Choosing the perfect cake should be fun. And don’t forget to have a slice on your special day!
