With so many contacts from couples getting married I thought I would write a post on choosing the perfect Wedding Cake for your big day.
There are so many things to think about for your Wedding Day and the cake is a huge part of this for most people, and most people don't know where to start.
As a Cake Designer and Maker I can tell you that the most important thing to think about is your budget.
When I got Married I had no idea how much a Wedding Cake cost and just picked a number out of thin air and wrote this down. Then after doing a bit of research I realised that the cake I wanted (and I had a very clear idea of what I wanted) I was never going to get within my budget! So something had to give, and for me it meant spending more money as I wasn't having anything other than the cake I wanted!!
My advise when setting your budget for your cake is to think about what is important to you both and how much you are prepared to spend??
To help you answer the above questions ask yourselves is the cake a big part of your day, do you really want to wow your guests with your cake? I would also suggest doing some research in to how much a Wedding Cake costs. Check out our Price Guide for Wedding Cakes to give you an idea.
Once you have established these things you have a good base to start with. Next is choosing a cake design. Some of you will know exactly what you want already, do you want it to match the theme of your wedding or do you want something really out there and different. The best thing is to get some ideas from Wedding Magazines and the Internet. Pinterest is a great place to get some ideas together of what you like and also what you don't like. Your cake maker will also have loads of ideas, so sit down with them and go through everything. Something very important to remember is that the more detail you have on a cake the more time it will take and therefor the more it will cost, so make sure you tell your cake maker your budget and they will guide you to make sure that the design you choose is within it.
