When it comes to receptions, “the cake” is often the center of attention as the only table guest. Nowadays, modern brides can choose from a variety of elegant luxury wedding cakes London. Contemporary cakes with clean lines and little decoration to multi-tiered masterpieces with hundreds of sugar flowers are all possible cake designs.
Designer Cakes of London is the definitive A to Z guide to choosing your luxury wedding cakes London.
- A for “Advice”
Seek guidance from a wide range of web resources, including wedding blogs, Pinterest, wedding fairs, venues, wedding planners, other vendors, and authoritative wedding directories and magazines. In the end, the best approach to locating a skilled cake artist to assist in bringing your ideas to life is to have a personal meeting with them.
- B for Budget and Bakery
Call many suggested luxuries wedding cake designers to discuss their “style.” If your budget fits theirs, schedule a visit. Please put down your questions and ask away. After narrowing your option, bring your partner for the consultation and tasting, which may cost a little. Discuss it beforehand at this meeting to ensure the cake designer respects your inclusive budget.
- C for Chemistry
No matter how skilled a cake designer is, you should have cooperation. They should understand your needs and offer cake design, flavor, and presentation advice.
- D for Decorations, Design, and Dietary Needs
Make a collection of anything that inspires your wedding style and bring it to your cake maker. Before choosing a cake, consider your wedding colors, reception venue, flowers, and desired atmosphere. Please inform the cake maker if you are vegan, vegetarian, or have allergies or particular dietary needs. Asking visitors helps you prepare.
- E for Etiquette
Learn wedding etiquette, so you know who does what. Some cultures include a groom’s cake or other sweets at the wedding, which may change cake flavors and amounts. Cake cutting and serving timing are essential. Before the wedding, have your cake maker, wedding planner, or organizer contact the venue’s kitchen and caterers.
- F for Fillings and Flavors.
The days of dense fruit cakes as wedding cakes are long gone. You may now pick from many other opulent and delectable flavors. At Designer Cakes of London, we only use the highest quality ingredients in our baked goods. Each layer might be a distinct flavor to satisfy various preferences.
- G for Groundwork
The time and effort spent researching cake designers is well worth the reward of knowing you’ve hired the best one for your special occasion.
- H for High Presentation
The perfect cake topper and presentation may make or break a wedding cake, like the appropriate accessories can make or break a wedding dress. Remember that the right accessories will likely cost more than the base price while negotiating your needs.
- I for Icing
Royal Icing, sugar paste, ganache, chocolate wrappers, and buttercream can cover luxury wedding cakes. These can provide perfect, textured, or rustic looks.
- J for Judgement
When deciding on a cake designer, go with your gut and the facts. A less intricate cake delivered on schedule, under budget, and to specification is preferable to an ornate cake that needs better perfection.
- K for Kids
Have a separate table set up for kids and serve them miniature versions of the wedding cake. Such personal touches are what make a wedding memorable for visitors.
- L for Leftovers
Brides used to keep the top tier of their wedding cake for their first anniversary or first child. You can, and we can advise you on how to maintain your top tier. We have also worked with humanitarian brides who donate leftovers to needy shelters.
- M for Marzipan
Cake designers frequently use this almond-based confection, which is sweet and unique in flavor, to cover fruit cakes. However, you should know that some of your visitors may have severe allergies to nuts and should be forewarned.
- N for Notice
If the cake design is complicated, give your cake maker three to six months’ notice. This will allow adequate time for the designer to make any modifications and discuss and implement every element of your cake’s design and content. However, if you ask respectfully, some bakeries can meet timing limitations outside the wedding season.
- O for Order
Get a formal quote/invoice and contract on cake design elements such as tiers, delivery, hiring, and more as soon as possible. This will allow you to verify your requirements and report any additional concerns.
- P for Price
The best deal may be found by comparing prices, but you may pay more if you have your heart set on a specific cake designer because of their reputation, portfolio, or years in the business.
- Q for Quality
Your cake should represent your flair and elegance. Look at the finishing touches, presentation, and decorations to find the right wedding cake.
- R for Reception
Discuss display spaces and table dressing with your venue, event planner, and cake maker, as the cake will be the centerpiece of the reception. For a summer wedding cake frosted with buttercream, avoid placing it near a window or in a hot room.
- S for Size or Servings
The cake size should match the guest count. So many cake layers are needed for hundreds of visitors. However, we have worked with couples with tiny guest lists who want magnificent wedding cakes. Ask your cake designer how to do this.
- T for Tastings
Your cake must taste as unique as it looks. A professional cake maker would let you try different cakes and filling flavors. After booking the cake maker, this may be removed from the wedding cake fee.
- U for Unusual
We will design a custom cake if you desire something unique. We specialize in extravagant, custom cakes with irregular forms and colors.
- V for Venues and Value Added
Venues may require choosing a luxury wedding cake designer from their recommended list. Some include wedding cakes. Choose a cake maker that will make your wedding memorable since you’ll spend a lot on it.
- W for Websites
Many reputable cake designers display photos of their work on their websites and social media profiles, making their portfolios and recent creations easier to find. This is a terrific source of wedding cake ideas, and you can quickly tell if you like or detest a cake designer.
- X for Xtras
Every little bit counts to paraphrase a well-known commercial tagline. Before making any final selections, make sure shipping, setup, and renting a display table and tablecloth are within your budget. These costs can dramatically raise your expenditure.
- Y for You
Relax, knowing you picked the ideal cake designer. You are paying a professional who values their reputation and strives to make your day special.
- Z for Zestful
Again, rest is crucial before the wedding. As a couple, you will be the center of attention during this most significant occasion. Maintain your mind, body, and soul. Enjoy your big day.
