The wedding cake is the centrepiece of the entire event. It has to look amazing as well as be tasty and delicious too. In this article we will look at some tips that you can use to inform either the people on the day or the cake designer, all of which should help to make sure that the cake looks amazing and does the job it sets out to do.
Don’t forget that you have as much control over the cake and conditions as you do with photography, for example. Don’t be shy when you’re talking to a cake designer.
If you can, it is always ideal to have your cake delivered to the venue by the cake designer. If you are having a friend of the family design the cake, which is often the case, then they should do what a professional cake designer would do.
This involves bringing the cake to the venue in a chilled container or refrigerated container. This way, the cake is kept at it’s best prior to the big event. We can’t over exaggerate this particular aspect of the process. Having a chilled cake is essential to the success of the cake and the overall event.
If you are worried about the cost of your cake, there is one way around this. Simply ensure that the cake that you have is simple and basic in as many areas as possible. This does not mean you have to have a boring cake, but the less elaborate cakes are usually least expensive.
Take the time to think about a simple design that is clear and focused on expressing sophistication, and you should still be able to have a nice and attractive cake. So it still looks good, but the simpler it is, the less expensive it will be.
If you’re working with a cake designer, then you have to come in for a tasting at some point. The trick here is to make sure that you do not eat anything before the tasting. This will affect your palate and will also influence the satisfaction you receive from trying the cake.
If you do not eat beforehand, you will be able to pick out the taste notes that you should receive whenever you try the cake. Obviously, the hungrier you are the more peckish you will be and the more able you will be to enjoy the cake.
You don’t necessarily have to work with a cake designer to get the best cake for your wedding. And your cake doesn’t have to be incredibly elaborate for it to be susceptible. Just ensure it is looked after, and that it does what you want it to do, namely allow the guests to enjoy a nice piece of cake on a very special day.
This is achievable as long as you are focused on ensuring that the cake has the right ingredients and that you are involved in the creation of the cake as much as possible.
