Hey loves, Happy Wednesday! 

In my last blog, I gave you some tips on the best questions to have ask when hiring your caterer. Today, I ‘m going to give you some tips on what to know before you hire a cake designer!

Whether you want an elaborately decorated wedding cake or a simple design, it’s still important to be clear on what you do and don’t like. Here’s a few things you should be sure of before meeting with a cake designer: 

  •  Collect images of cakes you like from bridal magazines

  • An idea of what you and your fiance would like the cake to look and taste like

  • Cake flavors, fillings and frostings you like and don’t like

  • What you would like to use for a cake topper

  • The approximate number of guests and the size of the reception room. Depending on the size of the room and number of guests, the cake designer can make a presentation cake and serve pieces from large sheet cakes kept in the kitchen. 

  • The style of your wedding, colors, flowers, style of your dress and decor ideas

  • Whether or not you’d like a groom’s cake. A groom’s cake is generally a cake designed in the theme of a hobby or interest of the groom and preferably in his favorite flavor! 

  • Whether or not you plan to serve any additional desserts

  • Whether the reception is indoors or outdoors. This will determine where the cake needs to be housed until it’s time to cut it!
