7 Practical Tips and Reminders for Your Wedding Cake

Choosing your pastry maker and cake

#1- Ask you pastry maker a book of his past creations. That will give you cake ideas, and a first impression about his general design, which you may like or not.

#2- Wedding cakes are usually good-looking. However their reputation tends to be sometimes "average" in terms of taste. You want your guests to love their dessert, and remember how different it is from the other weddings they've been to. Ask if you can have a "tasting session" when visiting your pastry maker (did I mention you'd enjoy your planning?)

#3- Make sure the price you're given is all inclusive (layers, decorations, wedding cake stands...)

#4- Ask for preservation conditions (temperature, etc...). Check that they match with your venue's technical characteristics.

#5- If you're having an outside wedding, beware that some contents (mousse fillings, creamy toppings...) can melt very quickly at sunshine, and should therefore be avoided.

#6- At the reception, set-up your cake on a place where people will see it. Best options could be at the entrance of the venue or near the main table where you'll be sitting.

#7- Don't forget to check with your venue how to dim the lights for the "cake cutting ritual"...
