Wedding cakes are a real focal point of any wedding…

aside to what the bride is wearing and how the rest of the wedding party are looking, people cannot wait to see what wedding cake the bride and groom have chosen.

For such an important thing I suggest the following points to be vital.

  • Choose someone who has a portfolio of their work, someone who can offer independent testimonials of previous work.
  • I think a genuine passion for cake making and decorating is a must, someone who is not overly enthusiastic should not be trusted with such an important part of your day.
  • Friendliness is a must and also someone who is willing to listen to what you, the bride and groom want, but also offer their own ideas.
  • I find once you mention the word ‘wedding’ prices seem to triple, I believe in offering excellent and tasty cakes but at reasonable prices, I for one truly love baking and making cakes, I find it very therapeutic and enjoyable. I feel honoured whenever a bride and groom choose me for such an important part of their wedding day. Which is why my prices are always competitive and more than fair as well as realistic.
  • Also try before you buy, where possible ask to taste, anyone can claim to bake or even decorate but the proof in the pudding is in the eating. Just because a cake looks good doesn’t mean it tastes good.
