All weddings include minimum three beautiful elements – the lovely bride the most beautiful of all, beautiful bridesmaids complementing her and of course a beautiful wedding cake, the pride and joy of the function. Every bride dreams of spectacular wedding cake that blends well with the wedding theme and colors. But, getting a perfect cake with the right luscious taste requires great planning and obviously a great baker.
As soon as the wedding date is fixed and couples finalize their wedding theme, they should find a good baker and confirm dates. To begin with, pop in at bakeries around your vicinity and check out some of their pastries. Most bakers have sample cakes adorning the store that can help you judge if the baker suits your sense of style.
Once you find a few bakeries to pick from after reviewing their work, prices and availability, schedule an appointment for tasting. When booking your appointment for a cake tasting, openly discuss your interests with the baker. If you’re completely unsure, request the baker if a broad assortment of samples can be presented. Also, keep the baker informed on how many people would attend the tasting with you, however it’s better not to involve too many folks for a cake tasting.
On the day of tasting, get your taste buds ready for a plethora of cakes with different flavors, fillings and frostings. Make sure to savor all samples and take your time in judging the taste, texture and moisture. After the tasting, if you make up your mind to fix on the baker for your big day, let them know as soon as possible. Most bakeries take limited bridal cake orders for each week, so their availability could be a concern.
