How can I preserve the top layer of my cake best?
To make sure your wedding cake tastes as good on your anniversary as it did on your wedding day please do the following:
- Put it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until the butter is fully cooled
- Wrap it in 2 layers of plastic wrap making sure to get out as much air as possible
- Put it in an airtight container and freeze until the day of your anniversary
- Remove from the freezer 4 hours prior to serving
- Enjoy and spend some time re-living your amazing day with the one you love!
What kind of decorations can you do on cakes?
When it comes to the decorations on your cake, the limit is only your budget. Make sure to decide the upper limit of your budget before arriving for your wedding consultation and stick to it. The greatest expense of a cake is intricate designs and flowers.
What are the current cake/dessert trends?
The current dessert bar trends include pink sugar cookies, french macarons and comfort type desserts. Think twinkles, mini cupcakes, whoopie pies and brownies…all stepped up from the original, of course.
How far in advance should I place my cake order?
Most bakeries work with a limited numbers of weddings they can do each week. So, you should find and book your bakery as soon as possible. We work with a first come, first served basis and regularly have to break the bad news to a bride that we cannot do her wedding. It’s always heartbreaking for us.
If you were planning your own wedding or event, what is something you would make sure to include?
Unique flavors. I find that people respond to something out of the ordinary. Something they don’t expect. Salted Caramel…always a crowd favorite
And lastly, any additional tips you believe would be helpful!
Come to your wedding consultation prepared. It will save you, and us, a lot of time. How many people do you need to serve? What style of cakes do you like? (have pictures on your phone for easy discussion), What is your budget ? No, we don’t want to make you spend it. It just really helps us in helping you find the balance between your “wants” and “needs”.
Plus, Most of all, no matter what is happening…HAVE FUN. You only get to go down this road once, so relish the process and the outcome!
