The Perfect Wedding Cake Experience
  • Once you find a few designers that you like, ask them for a consultation to see meet them and see their past work.
  • Bring any and all photos, swatches, notes, hopes and dreams with you to your first meeting. Try to have at least a general idea of what style of cake you want when you meet with them. Be completely honest about what you really want.
  • Ask to see their portfolio or for references from brides who've recently received wedding cakes from the designer.
  • Discuss your budget up front, and bring the person who is paying for the cake with you to meet your designer. Ask them how their wedding cakes are priced.
  • Ask for cake samples in the flavors you are considering. Keep in mind that you might be expected to pay a nominal fee for the samples.
  • Ask if the designer can create a cake from a picture, your own design, or from a combination of the two. Find out if any extra fees are charged to create a customized wedding cake. These questions are only relevant if you are looking for the personalized touch of a custom designed wedding cake or grooms cake.
  • Ask if they will supply any additional items such as a cake topper, cake stand, cake knife and server? And if there extra charges for these items.
  • Try to have an exact guest count and the final design agreed upon at least one month prior to the event. It's common for both cakes to be priced by the slice.
  • Be sure to think about diet. Some of your guests might have special diet requirements.Ask your designer about ingredients and if they make cakes that are kosher, organic or gluten-free?
  • Be open to suggestions from the designer. For example, the number and size of the cake tiers in your photo might need to be adjusted to serve the number of guests you expect. And remember, he/she is the professional and knows what will and will not work.
  • Ask how will the cakes be delivered and set up and is there any extra charge for either.
  • If you are not getting married in the same town, will the baker deliver your cakes to the wedding destination?
  • Ask about any additional charges that you might encounter.
  • Keep the lines of communication open with your designer to ensure all of your details and questions are addressed.
  • If you are pleased with your Cake Designer, by all means, recommend him/her to your friends.
  • And finally, on your wedding day, relax and let the Cake Designer handle your cake. After all, that's what you hired them for!
