The guests who attend your wedding will look forward to the ceremony, to the meal afterward, and of course to the cutting of the cake. You’ll naturally want to select a cake that people will enjoy, but also a cake that reflects your personal sense of style. That may sound like a tall order, but here are some tips to making the best decision about your wedding cake baker.
Tips for Choosing the Right Baker
Select the venue and wedding date first. Generally speaking, the cake shouldn’t be the first thing you line up for your big day. Choose the venue and the wedding date first, as those choices can impact your decision for a cake. For example, a delicately-iced cake may not be able to withstand the summer heat, so it would be a poor choice for an outdoor wedding in July.
Do your research. There are a lot of bakers out there, and it’s important to put in some due diligence before you land on one. Word of mouth tends to be the best way to find a good baker, but you can also scour online reviews, which tend to give a pretty clear sense of customer satisfaction.
Find a baker who matches your style. A lot of bakers have their own unique aesthetics—for example, a baker might specialize in very rustic cakes, or in extremely formal ones, or in whimsical designs. You can usually get a good sense of this just by looking through the baker’s social media profiles. Look for someone whose style lines up with your own.
Meet with at least two different bakers. And preferably three! Talk with each one of them about your needs/goals and also ask them about budget. Compare the value each baker offers, and also listen to your gut. Ultimately, you want a baker with whom you’ll enjoy working.
