Wedding cake is often the focal point of a reception. Whether you are looking for a classic cake, decorated with fresh flowers or a more modern design, a professional wedding baker cake can create a package to suit your style. When booking a wedding cake, make sure you schedule a tasting to choose cakes and design flavors!
What wedding cake is the right one for you?
Of all the honored wedding traditions over time, wedding cakes are one of our favorites. Perhaps because of the infinite variety of impressive decorations, it may be the symbolic gesture of a new couple who shares a precious jam with all those who gathered to celebrate them, or because 90% of all couples swear they do not throw his new husband's desserts and yet 75% of them still do! It could be one of those things, but probably the wedding cakes are just some of the most beautiful, delicious and yummy cakes ever! And we all know that a party is not complete without a cake.
Now we know what you are thinking: “When we can taste some cake?” The answer is very soon. Note that you should start looking for inspiration at least six months before your wedding and plan a meeting with the cake baker at least three months before the wedding. It is important to keep in mind the theme of marriage and color palette when choosing the shape, style and size of the wedding cake.

Questions to ask your wedding baker
The day of the tasting arrives! Here are some tips on what to ask the baker when you meet face to face. How would you describe the design of the cake? This may seem strange to a baker, but if you have a tendency to make formal weddings I suggest using black chocolate with butter or otherwise for several occasional weddings. Make sure you are able to create the cake you want. Do you offer vegan flavors, gluten-free or dairy-free? Are you offering other types of desserts? We recommend that you consider other dessert options if you buy a smaller cake. Are you coordinated with the venue? Are you coordinated with the florists?
If you and your fiancé(e) are not fan of the cake, it's all right. Having a cake is not carved in stone. Find what best suits your personality and desires. You can also take a test to find out which other wedding desserts should serve at your wedding.
