Buying a wedding cake may not seem like a huge deal; however, many individuals become confused and overwhelmed when they are faced with the daunting task of purchasing their wedding cake. However, there are several tips that will help make your wedding cake purchase smooth and easy. The first tip is to make sure that you place the order for your wedding cake 3 to 6 months before your actual wedding. This is because most wedding cakes are complex and take several months of planning and preparation.

The next tip to purchasing your wedding cake is to shop around for the best deal and the best cake. Make sure that you choose a bakery that has a reputation for building beautiful cakes, and also ask to see their wedding cake portfolio. If you see a highly decorated wedding cake, make sure that the decorations are included within the actual price. This is very important, because many newlyweds are distraught with they find out that the initial price they paid for their cake does not include all of the decorations they asked for, thus they end up having a massive cake bill.

When you first approach a bakery, ask to taste samples of their wedding cakes to make sure that you enjoy the taste of the cake as much as you do the design. Also, make sure that you clarify whether or not they will deliver your wedding cake to the reception location and if they don’t ask when the pick-up date will be. Before your wedding, you will want to visit the bakery two to three days before your wedding to ensure the cake is being designed to your specifications. If there is an error with the cake, you may not be able to have it fixed in time; however, you will most likely receive cash-back for this error.

Understanding where your wedding cake will be constructed is very important. When you’re dealing with an individual bakery, ask to see their work station so you can verify they have the necessary tools to create the wedding cake that you have asked for. Most professional cake makers will not have a problem showing you their kitchen and explaining the creative process. The most important thing that you must remember when you are purchasing a wedding cake is to ask as many questions as you can think of. The main reason why so many individuals have negative experiences with a bakery is because they did not have clear communication with what you are expecting and how the bakery will deliver your expectations. Also, remember that wedding cakes are priced depending on their size and how many guests it will be feeding. Before you purchase your wedding cake, have a close-to-finalized wedding party list so you will know how large your cake must be. Make sure that you do not purchase a wedding cake that is too large for your wedding because you may end up paying for a lot of uneaten wedding cake.
