There are so many decisions to make to ensure your wedding is the best it can be. But one of the most pleasurable is picking the wedding cake. What can seem to be an easy decision to make at first however can turn into something a little bit more tricky. To give you some help, here’s some advice on choosing the right wedding cake for your wedding…
Do you know what you want or do you want some inspiration?
For some brides, they have the exact picture of what they want their cake to look like. But for many, they may be unsure and could do with some inspiration to help focus their mind on exactly what they want. This is where social media comes in very useful. Pinterest is a brilliant place to go if you want to explore a plethora of ideas and designs, as is Instagram. You’ll soon have lots of great ideas to work with and discuss with your cake maker as well as knowing certain designs you don’t want! Or maybe you want something a little different. At Warwick House, we have had a donut tower!
Choosing the right wedding cake maker
Choosing the right cake maker is a decision you should make using a variety of factors. Do you like the cakes they have made in the past? Do they have an outstanding reputation? Are they reliable? Do you think you can work with them to get the best cake you can? Here at Warwick House, we can recommend several suppliers who we have worked with many times before and can highly recommend. These include The Weddings and Events Lounge and The Cakery at Leamington. Both of these suppliers have worked with us here at Warwick House many times to the great satisfaction of all the weddings they worked on. Having a cake maker you can trust is a God-send because it is one less thing to worry about!
Make sure you communicate your budget
Tell your cake maker exactly what you want from your wedding cake and how much money you have to spend. This is the easiest and most efficient way of ensuring that you get the cake you and your wedding deserves. Working to a budget will enable them to maximise what you get for your money and your guests will be thankful when they see and taste the wonderful cake! Don’t think that by revealing a budget you’ll get less for your money, wedding cake makers are professionals and would never risk harming their hard-won reputation to make a few more pounds from a job.
Get the size right
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all wedding cake and the size if yours will be dictated by the number of portions you will need to provide. Ensuring your cake maker is aware of the wedding numbers will help them come up with a cake that is the perfect size for your wedding, making sure no-one is left without a lovely piece to enjoy.
