We all know what an important decision choosing a style and design of your wedding cake is. That is why we chatted with Michelle Apiar, owner of one of the 50 Best Wedding Cake Bakeries in America, Haute So Sweet, to get tips so you’re prepared for your consultation. Her advice will get you and your preferred baker from concept to cake in no time!
1. Ask Friends and Family
If someone you know had a cake at their party that was AMAZING, ask them for the name of the bakery that created it.
2. Know Your Budget and Be Honest About It
Cake designers usually have a minimum pricing for their cakes, but often can create something beautiful within your budget
3. Bring All Inspiration with You to the Cake Consultation
Any color swatches, photos, or anything that evokes the theme of your wedding is essential when meeting with your cake designer/baker.
4. Ask for References or Check Reviews Online:
A good bakery will have a list of customer references that they will provide you with, and check websites like Wedding Wire for reviews.
5. Own It:
Choose a baker that creates a cake in the interest of you and your guests, not one that follows trends or sticks to a formula. This is your special day and your cake should be the representative centerpiece for it.
