Deciding What Style and Flavor of Desserts You'd Like
You'll want to find a cake that fits your theme and tastes as good as it looks. Do you want a rich, moist white cake or a mouth-watering velvety cake? Schedule a tasting with a few bakers to find a flavor that suits your taste.
Decide Early On If You Prefer a Standard or Customized Cake Design
Your venue choice can really influence the design details of your cake: Delicate buttercream icing won’t withstand the heat as well as sturdier fondant at an outdoor summer wedding, so once you’ve secured your location, start shopping around for your baker.
Ask How Much The Cake Designer Charges and How They Base Cost
Wedding Cake Designer's rates are often based on the amount of guests, usually $1-$15 per serving. The cost is also based on the date, time of delivery, and location of the wedding. It’s important to understand all of the costs upfront.
