How to make ordering your cake a BREEZE

Choosing your wedding cake design and ordering your cake should not be a traumatic experience.  We have sat down and pondered what really matters most about your cake and the ordering process. The way we see it, cake is art weddings are art. Everywhere you look at a wedding someone’s special artistic touch is being put on display.

Designing your cake should be enjoyable, it should not feel like a visit to the dentist. You can find some of our own tips below:

1.       Choose a cake designer you are comfortable with. This is key, if you don’t feel comfortable you won’t be happy, it is a perceived idea. Your mind is WAY more powerful than you give it credit for. Make sure you feel at ease with the staff, the designer, and the baker. Listen to your heart, and we meant it. Too many times cakes are designed and created, you can tell that there was not a good chemistry between the customer and the creative team. There is nothing worse than spending money on something you didn’t like.

2.       Make sure your artistic ideas and the bakeries artistry match. For example, we specialize in classic cakes and clean-cut lines. We don’t do topsy turvy or crazy over the top cakes. Every cake artist has a unique style. Make sure you research your future bakery, look at all their work. If you are happy with their finished product and touches then you should consider them, if not then consider they may not be the artists to create your wedding cake.

3.       Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Please, please we do our best to explain everything, but if you have a question ask it. Wedding cakes are way more intricate and complex than people think. There is architecture, decoration, different terminology and techniques. Don’t leave your tasting feeling like you have no idea what you just invested in.
