We’re serving wedding cake tips that no one tells you!
The question has been popped. You’ve said YES! And, your nearest and dearest are all excited. The date has been finalized! And, there are a million details to plan. In today’s guide, we help you plan and order the perfect wedding cake. Let’s get started.
Even if you know nothing about wedding cakes (other than that they are soooo pretty and yummy), the more informed you are about flavours, styles, and wedding cake delivery, the better your decisions. Continue reading to pick the perfect wedding cake.
1. Start with the Venue and Menu
Let the theme and venue serve as an inspiration for your cake. Is it a grand Bollywood-style affair or a simple event with just a few close friends?
Keeping your wedding cake consistent with the rest of the theme is a great idea. Here, at Gurgaon Bakers, we recommend that you choose the venue, menu, and theme before deciding on the final design of the cake.
With that said, you don’t have to make your cake matchy-matchy to fit the rest of the theme. Ultimately, there’s no right and wrong design. It all depends on your preferences.
2. Choosing the Right Baker is Half the Job Done
If you want a wedding cake that looks unique, then you need to focus on cake designers who have their own signature styles. Here, at Gurgaon Bakers, we work closely with you to help you create the wedding cake of your dreams.
3. Money Matters
When you order wedding cakes, you pay for the creativity, time, ingredients, artistry, and love the baker pours into your cake.
Be upfront with your baker about your budget. Once your baker knows the ballpark figure, he/she can create a bespoke design for you that fit your budget. Here, at Gurgaon
4. When to Place the Order?
If you have decided on the baker and are super in love with their designs, then it’s best to book them early to avoid disappointments. Generally, most couples start wedding planning at least one year or six months in advance. So, it’s highly recommended that you book as early as possible.
Remember that wedding cakes are time-consuming and are elaborate confections. Most bakers don’t take up more than a wedding cake order at the same time. So, make sure that you contact your chosen baker as soon as possible.
5. What Size Should I Order?
It’s not necessary that your cake should be big enough to feed all your wedding guests, especially if you have a large celebration with hundreds of guests. You can move the cake cutting to a special ceremony with just a few close friends and relatives.
With that said, you can order huge cakes for the entire gathering if needed. It’s all up to you. But, make sure that you have an approximate idea of the number of guests that you are inviting before placing the order.
Here, at Gurgaon Bakers, our clients generally choose three or four tiers when the guest count is around 100 – 120. To serve a bigger crowd, we can supplement the main cake with additional cupcakes or small cutting cakes, if needed. For smaller intimate celebrations, two-tier cakes are perfect.
At Gurgaon Bakers, we love our wedding cakes to be big and huge. The best part, our cakes stay fresh for up to five days, making a perfect snack for your guests to take home.
6. Flavour Mania
Looking for a traditional fruit cake filled with raisins, nuts, spice, and everything spice? We’ve got it for you. Several of our couples choose traditional fruit cake as their wedding cake.
Our other popular flavours – bean vanilla, fresh strawberry, chocolate mud cake, salted caramel, and red velvet. These flavours are popular for several reasons. Firstly, they are incredibly delicious and taste well on their own or together with other flavours. Secondly, these flavours are crowd pleasers. While it’s ok to experiment with flavours for personal orders, when choosing wedding cakes, we recommend that you opt for classic, simple flavours that everyone loves.
Apart from the cake flavour, you can choose from our wide range of buttercream flavours that are creamy, delicious and scrumptious.
7. Don’t Want a Wedding Cake?
We get you. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary for your wedding, we suggest a cupcake tower. Decorated prettily, our cupcakes are a delight to eat and incredibly easy to serve. No messes and no cutting. The best part, everyone gets an equal size of cake with perfect frosting. What more, our cupcake towers make for the awe-inspiring centerpiece for your wedding receptions.
8. Fondant or Fon-DON’T?
We have clients on both sides of the camp. While some adore the smooth finish of fondant, others love the simplicity of plain ol’ buttercream. Whatever be your preference, here at Gurgaon Bakers, we can get it done for you.
Your day, your choice – that’s our motto!
9. Cake Delivery
One important thing to double-check and triple-check with your baker whether they can deliver the cake to your venue.
You may think that you can save a few hundreds of rupees by getting someone in your wedding party to pick the cake from the baker by themselves, but you’re so wrong. The logistics of transporting a three or four-tier cake is pretty immense. Check out our earlier post, to know all the processes involved in it.
