Shopping for your wedding cake should be an all out hunt; you don’t want to lose your sanity. But it shouldn’t be dealt with casually either. This is your wedding and your cake will be quite the focal point. At Ontario Bakery, we’ve heard so many disaster stories that we don’t want you to end up in the same boat. We believe you should have just the right cake for your wedding, without the mistakes, the blunders and stress.
Here are our tips:
Limiting Options. Don’t limit your options by going with the first baker you meet. It’s important to do your research and make sure that the baker you choose is the right one for the job. Bonus idea? Use this as a creative date idea! Make a list of your favorite bakers and visit one each week for taste testing!
Budget Misconceptions. Another common mistake is assuming that ordering a cake will be too expensive. Of course, some are, but it doesn’t mean that all of them will be. So ask questions. Call the shops and get a quote but remember that you’re paying to have less stress, better taste and lasting memories.
Poor Communication. Your baker isn’t a mind reader. So if you have a vision in your mind, communicate it to the finest detail. Don’t assume they understand. Be specific.
Crowd Pleasing. This is your wedding. That means the cake should be the one you want. This is a point we really need to emphasize, because so many people want one kind of cake but end up going with a cake that everyone else wants. Remember that this is your wedding and they’ll love whatever you choose!
Skimping on Delivery. Always go with delivery. Not only is it going to lessen the stress, but it will lessen your risk as well. If something happens to your cake during transport, you won’t be responsible for it. So go with delivery.
Color Choices. While your accent colors might be black or navy blue, it’s not smart to use these colors with your icing as they dye the teeth. One moment, everyone will be enjoying their dessert, and the next moment, everyone is smiling with blue teeth. Not good for photos.
Your wedding cake is not something to go lax on and settle for second best. This wedding is your day and one to remember. So treat it with care.
