8 Great Tips to Treat Your Guests to a Tasty Wedding Cake
Make sure that the decoration and design is the right kind to suit your taste, before you agree to give an order to the baker. Go through referrals and see what prices are being quoted. Look through the samples first before deciding on your cake. A supermarket could offer a wide range of cakes at a lesser cost than your bakery.
Decide on how you want to decorate your wedding cake, whether you want to keep it simple and cute or splendid and rich. Avoid over-decorating the cake. It is not necessary to have a five-tiered cake. You can have your cake stacked if you want.
Remember that bakers who do not specialize in wedding cakes could still bake the best cakes and cost less. Home bakers do not charge much and could make lovely cakes.
Consider borrowing the pillars. There are disposable pillars available with your local baker or rental companies which are a better alternative than those crystal pillars if you want to cut down on the cost of the pillars. Let the baker or your local rental company help you with the disposable pillars instead of the crystal ones.
Find prices at a cake making or culinary school near your place. Students have baking and decorating cakes as part of their curriculum. You can be assured that you will get a gorgeous cake and have it made at a very low price.
Save on your wedding cake topper prices. Often relatives and well-wishers ask what you need as a gift. Ask them for a wedding cake topper.
If you buy a multi-tiered cake, see that you decorate it yourself or have the florist do it for you. If you want flowers on your cake but the cost of the artificial flowers isn’t fitting in your budget, let your florist put real flowers on the cake. Just make sure that they are non-toxic. Check the price of the organic edible flowers.
Consider a smaller tiered cake for effect, and get a sheet cake to feed the guests, once the cake is cut, no one can tell what shape it was in originally!
