But choosing a wedding cake is not an easy task. There are plenty of details to be taken care of – flavour, size, style, icing type, and more. Worry not, we’ve got your back. In this post, we share with you all that you need to know to choose the right wedding cake.
Find here the Perfect Wedding cakes in Gurgaon in Easy Steps.
This is the first step to choosing the perfect wedding cake. You need to explore the different cake flavour available, and this is your chance to meet the baker in person. You can have a one-on-one talk with the baker to know more about the latest trends in the baking world.
You will also be able to check out pictures of the previous orders of the bakers to get inspiration. Most bakers schedule a visit with the bride and groom, to get to know their personal tastes, understand the theme of the wedding so that they can come up with unique designs personalised to the bride and groom’s styles.
Handy Tip: Start your hunt for a wedding baker as early as you can and pre-book the baker as soon as the wedding date is announced. This way, you can avoid last-minute panic rushes.
The Cake Size
Finalize the guest count so that you can plan the size of the cake accordingly. Today, it’s common for brides and grooms to host a separate cake cutting celebration just with a few select friends and family, and not the entire list of wedding guests. Generally, a regular-sized three-tier cake will serve around 50 to 100 guests.
Handy Tip: The size of the cake plays a crucial role in determining your budget. So make sure you decide the size while fixing your budget.
Frosting, Frosting, what colour do you choose?
When it comes to frosting, there are plenty of options available on the market. Buttercream and fondant are the two most common choices. They work well for wedding cakes, as well. With fondant, you can get picture-perfect finishes. While buttercream doesn’t give the perfect finish of fondant, it scores an extra point in taste.
Alternatively, you can also opt for ganache. Made from cream and chocolate, ganache has a fudgy texture. While ganache was initially available only in dark brown, today bakers have got creative with this medium. Here, at Gurgaon Bakers, we offer white chocolate ganache tinted in any colour. Other frosting options are Swiss meringue and Italian buttercream.
Handy Tip: While choosing the frosting of the wedding cake, you have to consider both the stability and taste of the fondant.
This brings us to the next tip.
Check the Weather Forecast
When you choose frosting, always keep in mind the weather. If your wedding is an outdoor event, it’s better if you opt for fondant or any other summer frosting that can stand well for a long time.
Handy Tip: Let the baker know your wedding date and ask them for the right suggestions.
Provide as much information as possible
After choosing a professional baker, you should trust your baker and provide him/her with as much information as possible. The baker needs to know all the information to bake exactly what you are looking for.
You can start by providing your wedding date, the theme of the cake and wedding, the number of guests, venue, signature colours and so on. Also, it is important to share the budget you are expecting. It gives the baker a better idea.
Never forget to mention if you are looking for eggless or egg cake for your guest. Double-check if you have given all the important information to the baker. This is also the time to provide pictures and other references; however, do not expect the baker to create the exact cake, as copying will not give you a unique, high-quality product.
And, now with the improvement of technology, you can place your order online. At Gurgaon bakers, our bespoke cake studio in Gurgaon, you can place your orders online and be tension free about your order. You can also contact us through our WhatsApp number.
Set a Realistic Budget for your custom cake
Never set your cake budget based regular mass-produced cakes from grocery shops. The cake is produced in masses, so the cost of making differs. Also, the quality of the ingredients used by a professional baker for the custom cake is of high quality. So obviously with the high quality, you need to pay for it.
It’s not necessary you have to choose a four-tier or a bigger cake to feed your entire guest. You can move the cake cutting ceremony to an intimate party with just a few close friends and family. You can also give cupcakes to a guest who didn’t get the cake.
Here, at Gurgaon bakers, we recommend ordering three and four-tier cakes when the guest count is around 100 – 120. If you have more guests, we love to take huge orders. Also, we make custom cupcakes that double as return gifts.
Make sure your cake is transported properly
This tip is most important as the delivery of the cake is a crucial step. It is better to choose a baker who delivers the cake at the venue (if for free it’s a bonus). You may think that you can save a few bucks by getting someone to deliver the cake at the party, but you are wrong, my friend. You can end up spoiling the entire cake, as it is not an easy task to transport three-tier or huge cakes.
Better double-check or triple check with the baker if they deliver cake to the venue. Make sure to ring a day before to make sure the date, time, and venue details are correct. At Gurgaon bakes, we offer free wedding cake delivery all over Gurgaon. Trust us to deliver the cake in perfect shape to you at the right time, date venue.
Maintain Good communication with Baker
This is as much important as placing your cake order. Make sure you communicate with your baker and get updates about your cake. This makes sure that the processing is going at the right time. After the event never forget to contact the baker to give your suggestions.
A professional baker is always happy with your suggestions and ideas. If something is not right, bring that up to baker or the baker’s assistant. At Gurgaon bakers we provide, we are available for queries and suggestions from 11 am to 11 pm. You are free to contact and book your orders can enquire details about your order.
