Always make an appointment with selected bakers first. Before you make the appointment, you want to make sure the baker meets your qualifications by asking the following questions:
1. How many years of experience do you have in making wedding cakes?
2. Do you specialize in a particular type of wedding cake?
3. Do you offer complimentary tastings?
4. Do you freeze your wedding cakes?
5. How far in advance should I order?
6. Do you rent cake knives, stands etc? And what are the terms?
7. What is your average cost per serving of my desired cake style?
8. What is your cake delivery and setup fees?
9. What is your payment policy?
10. What is your cancellation policy?
Do your homework and be prepared with:
- a budget or price range
- pictures of cakes you like
- pictures of any flowers you are selecting
- pictures and details of your decor theme and colors
- pictures of your reception gown

Most people attending a wedding are waiting for the two main attractions: the wedding dress and the wedding cake. While guests can only look at (ok and maybe touch!) the dress, everyone can partake in the beauty AND the taste of a wedding cake. What good is a beautiful wedding cake if it doesn’t taste good? Most cakes like the ones pictured above can be costly and not in every one’s budget. However, there are ways you can save on the cost of your cake.
- Be a square: square cakes tend to yield more servings than traditional round cakes.
- Keep it fresh: instead of the gorgeous handmade florals and decorations, opt for fresh seasonal florals and even fruits to decorate your cake.
- Keep designs to a minimum: Swiss dots look beautiful on a cake and don’t cost nearly as much as more intricate designs.
- Dummy up: Have your baker create a smaller decorated cake for display and then bake several sheet cakes for serving. Slices can be cut in the prep room and your guests will never know.
- Choose one flavor: Often brides want several different flavors. This can be extremely expensive in some cases.
