With so many choices out there, how do you pick the right customised cake that matches the theme and mood of your celebration?
To make sure that your cake is everything you’ve imagined it to be, we’ve rounded up the most important questions to ask your customised cake baker, before placing an order. Bon appetit!
Before you contact the baker, take some time to research the style of the baker. This is crucial as different bakers have different styles. For example, some bakers are proficient in fondant cakes, while others prefer buttercream. So, you need to look for a baker who matches the cake style you have in mind.
- Look up the baker in social media (Instagram, Facebook) to check out their style
- See if it matches the aesthetics you have in mind
- Also check out Google reviews to see what other customers say about the baker
Before you Sign
- Check if the baker offers fresh cream cake delivery to your venue/location. This saves you the hassle of travelling long distances in peak traffic to pick your cake.
- Check if the baker is available for delivery on your special day – some bakers even offer same-day delivery of customised cakes. This is a huge perk if you’re placing last-minute orders.
The Design, Flavours and Fillings
- For a customised cake to match your occasion, the first element you have to freeze is the design. At Gurgaon Bakers, we have a huge array of cake designs for a variety of occasions. Browse our cake gallery to find a design that appeals to you. Alternatively, you can also share the picture of your model cake (from anywhere on the internet) and we’ll replicate it for you.
- While deciding the flavours and fillings, go through the menu offered by the bakery. When it comes to choosing flavours and fillings, there is no set rule. It all depends on what you like and the taste preferences of your guests. If you’re going with exotic flavours, we suggest placing a vanilla or chocolate cake order, so that guests who are not adventurous eaters can try the basic flavours, while other guests can experiment with new flavours.
- Don’t forget to check the ingredients used by the baker. It’s worth it to pay a bit extra for premium ingredients.
The Pricing and Logistics
- Check the pricing of the baker to see if there are any additional fees.
- As mentioned above, it’s an added benefit if the bakery offers doorstep cake delivery. This not only saves you time, but also ensures that the cake reaches your doorstep in perfect condition.
- Some bakers even offer additional add-ons along with the cake like a flower bouquet, chocolate bouquet, teddy bears, etc.
- At Gurgaon Bakers, we specialise in surprise midnight delivery. Our delivery personnel deliver the cake at the doorstep of the recipient, right when the clock strikes twelve. This is a great way to celebrate the birthday of a loved one, surprising them with a sweet treat and starting the new year on a sweet note.
