ASK A LOT OF QUESTIONS???
What is the diameter of each tier?
What is the cost of each serving?
What does delivery charge include?
How big is a serving?
What is Butter Cream icing?
What is fondant?
What is Italian Butter Cream icing?
Can I get a sample to taste?
Are cup cakes available? Do they have fillings?
Will my cake be picture ready with flowers arranged on the cake top, sides and around the base?
Who provides the fresh flowers? The bride or the bakery?
Hand made sugar flowers are they an added cost?
Will your CATER charge to cut the cake?
Can I take left over cake home after the party?
FIRST and foremost, appearance should not exceed taste. An elegant cake will stand straight and never be overly decorated. Floral arrangements on and between the tiers will give an overall polished look.
If you plan to do price comparisons with local bakeries, you must have the size (diameter) of each tier to get a true picture of how much cake you are really getting. Some smaller wedding cakes can serve a large crowd only because the servings are "taste" size, or approximately bite sized. A generous serving should be the size of a deck of cards.
When ordering take your time. This is a large expense in your wedding budget and should be exactly what you want. It is wise to reserve your party date early. Six months to a year advance reservation is perfect. August, September and October are busy wedding months and definately require advance date reservation.
CALL YOUR BAKER one week before the party to reconfirm the order and delivery time.
The cost of your wedding cake will be determined by the guest count. Usually that will be firmed up a week before your party and the cost will adjust at that point.
