Tips to Organising Your Wedding Cake

08/08/2019 – Tips and Articles – by Barbara Bechaz

The first official duty as a married couple is the cutting of the wedding cake that will be served to your guests.

You may choose to use the wedding cake as your dessert requiring larger servings or with tea and coffee later in your reception which will mean smaller servings for your guests. Your wedding cake creator will ask you a few questions to enable an accurate quote when you make your first contact.

If you have found images of the design and styles of wedding cakes that will suit your wedding ideas, it will be very helpful to offer these and to ensure your cake creator is on the “same page”.

The number of guests to be catered for, preferred cake flavour(s), venue details including air conditioning availability and your style of wedding eg boho or elegant, colours of bridesmaid dresses and tablecloths and runners, type and colour of flowers in bouquets and table decorations all assist your wedding cake creator to incorporate the important decorative details of your wedding style in the design process of your wedding cake.

Perhaps you envisage your wedding cake as a “stand alone” feature of your wedding reception to wow your guests on their arrival. Anything and everything can be created these days so don’t be afraid to tell your wedding cake creator what you really would like.

It is extremely important to feel confident that your wedding cake creator understands your vision and that he or she is suitably qualified and experienced with a current Council license approved kitchen and insurance so make sure you ask and check online on the council website in your reception vicinity.

Give as much notice as you reasonably can when booking your wedding cake creator to ensure their availability for your special day. Exact guest numbers and final details of the cake design and flavour(s) can be made closer to the wedding date during the planning process.

Congratulations and best wishes for a wonderful future together.
