Importance of Your Wedding Cake
A large amount of brides agree that selecting a cake designer and designing the perfect wedding cake is important decision the bride will make. They are two symbols of the wedding which are most likely to be remembered by the guests at the wedding. Wedding guests are likely to talk about the wedding for days or even weeks after the wedding. The two things most likely to talked about are the dress and the cake. For this reason, most brides feel a great deal of pressure about choosing these items. This article will provide some advice on designing your wedding cake.
First and foremost a couple should choose an experienced and reputable cake designer to assist them in designing their wedding cake. We are all for giving others a chance to break into an industry. But be honest with yourself about whether you would really want to take a chance on a cake designer with minimal experience. It is after all your wedding day. You need someone who has the experience you can trust for your wedding cake. Seek out recommendations from trusted sources such as friends or family members and ask for references.
Once you begin meeting with cake designers always ask to see samples of their previous work. This is important because you will likely notice the cake designer has their own style. If there is anything you do not like, it might be time to eliminate this cake designer. You likely will not be 100% satisfied with your wedding cake.
It is also very important to consider the overall attitude of the cake designer. Ideally you want to select a cake designer who listens to your expectations but is realistic about whether or not these expectations can be met. You don’t want a cake designer who promises you they can design an outrageous cake only to have the cake crumble during your wedding. Likewise, you don’t want to deal with a cake designer who is not willing to take some risks.
Once you have selected a cake designer, you should work closely with the cake designer. Ensure the cake you receive is perfect for your wedding. The cake designer should be able to provide you with sketches to give you an idea of what the cake will look like. Now is the time to speak up. If the cake is round and you want a square cake don’t be afraid to voice your opinions. If the cake uses a lot of colored icing and you want to stick to white, speak up. Most professional cake designers will not be offended and will be happy to make changes.
