What would you say is the most iconic item at a wedding? Well, it has to be one of two possible choices. It is either the bridal gown or the wedding cake. And while the bridal gown is usually very beautiful, the great thing about a well designed wedding cake is that it is beautiful and it tastes really scrumptious. One thing to keep in mind about wedding cakes of today is that your options are all across the board. You can be as creative as you want to be in terms of colors, shapes, sizes, and taste. That is why you need a professional wedding cake designer to help you through all of the options and to create something that is patterned after your wedding theme and vision. The Corpus Christi area does not lack when it comes to the arena of professional wedding cake designers. It is just a matter of finding one that will please you with their design and tastiness. Nowadays, there are even other options other than cake, but we will let the professional talk to you about that. So, without further adieu, here are questions that you should be armed with as you go on your search for a wedding cake designer.
Obviously, before you meet with any candidates, find out if they are available on your wedding date. Keep in mind that some cake designers schedule more than one client on the same day. Make sure that the cake designer you are talking to has plenty of staff if that is the case. You don't want to have to share with another client if there are not enough to go around in the first place. Find out how the price their service. The norm is by the slice. Feel free to share the budget you have set for your cake expense and find out how they can help you save on the cost if need be. There are so many options for you to consider. Is delivery and setup a part of your overall cost? What about a cake table, cake toppers, a cake-cutting knife, and other decorative items? Are they able to provided these and if so, are they part of a package or are they an added expense? Do they require a deposit to reserve their services?
We cannot stress enough how much you should be looking for a cake designer with experience. It's like with anything, everyone has to learn at some point, but you just don't want them to learn with you as the guinea pig. So, have a discussion about their background. What did they get into the cake designing business in the first place? How long have they been in business? How many weddings have they designed cakes for? Are they licensed and insured? Where did their training come from? Have them show you pictures of cakes they have designed and baked. Do you like their style? Do you see anything that you might like for your wedding, perhaps a different shape or color. Talk about your theme, dress, and color scheme. What kind of ideas do they have that they think would work for your wedding?
Setup a cake tasting session. We recommend that you do not hire any cake designer where you have not had the opportunity to taste their wares. Ask you if you can leave with a menu of their cakes, icing types, and filling. There are some definite ways in which you can save and ask your potential cake designer what they would suggest. For instance, if you go with butter cream instead of fondant, your overall cost will be much less expensive. There are many additional tips that your expert should be able to share.
