Cake expectations

Not sure where to start when it comes to choosing your wedding cake? Simply follow this stress-free guide...

Nine months...

 

Now is the time to begin looking for a cake-maker. Scour the Internet, visit local wedding fairs, or ask your friends and family or venue for any recommendations.

TOP TIPS: HOW TO FIND YOUR WEDDING CAKE

Eight months...

Choose a flavour, style and theme for your cake. Remember, you don't have to stick to the traditional tiered fruit cake. Why not go for a light lemon flavour, a rich red velvet creation, a tower of individually iced cupcakes or even a French croquemboche encased in spun sugar? Once you've decide what kind of cake you want, get quotes from a few cake-makers before making your final decision.

FLORAL WEDDING CAKE IDEAS

 

Six months...

Discuss the following points with your preferred cake maker: your wedding date, proposed budget, venue address, wedding theme, number of guests, delivery times, plus the type, design and decoration of cake. Put all agreed points down in writing, and then book the cake-maker with a deposit.

WEDDING FLOWERS ON A BUDGET

Three months...

Make sure that your venue has a suitable area to display your cake, away from direct sunlight. Also check the venue is able to provide a cake table, stand and knife. If not, make the necessary arrangements with the wedding organiser.

HOW TO LOOK AMAZING IN YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHS

One month...

Call your cake-maker to confirm all details, including any final payment details and delivery instructions.

YOUR SKINCARE QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Day after...

If you're having a fruit cake or a similarly long-lasting creation, ask your mum or a trusted friend to send pieces of your wedding cake out in boxes to those who couldn't make the big day. Or you could follow tradition and keep a piece of your cake in the freezer, to be eaten on your first wedding anniversary or at your child's christening!
