Planning Your Ideal Wedding Cake
 
If you’re planning a wedding, creating the perfect menu is probably at the top of your to-do list. And after a delicious meal, you’ll want to top it off with an impressive dessert: Your wedding cake. Most bakeries recommend choosing your cake about four to six months in advance: Enough time to ensure it will be done to your specifications but not so far in advance that you can’t make changes to your design if your plans change. In addition to booking a design appointment, most bakeries also offer a cake tasting, allowing you to taste-test a variety of flavors before making your final decision.
 
Another trendy idea is having, either in replacement of or as an added bonus, a treats table. Sweets like a candy table or a donut wall have become popular in recent years. Having a cupcake station makes it easier for guests to try those delicious cake flavors without having to take up more time cutting up and handing out slices from a larger cake. Many of the bakeries that will handle your cake design will be able to also create a sweets table alternative for guests of any age to enjoy. 
 
The Different Styles of Wedding Cakes
 
When it comes to choosing the design of your cake, you have a seemingly endless number of options. Some wedding cake options to consider and discuss with your baker are:


It’s always a good idea to view any photos of the baker’s previous work if you’re unsure of the type of design you want.
 
Communicating with Your Cake Designer
 
During your consultation, make sure you use the time to ask the designer questions and address any concerns you may have. Some topics you may want to bring up include:
 
Many couples are looking for alternatives to a traditional wedding cake, such as cake pops, ice cream cakes, cupcake towers, cookies, etc. If you’re interested in these options, either instead of or alongside a wedding cake, make sure you bring it up with your cake designer during your appointment. You should also use this opportunity to discuss the total cost of the cake and any additional services provided. For reference, in the US, the average cost of a wedding cake is approximately $500.
