Choosing a Wedding Cake
How many times have you eaten forgettable wedding cake? With the wonderfully talented pastry chefs out there like Silver Rose Bakery in Phoenix serving the wedding industry, there is no reason any bride should have a wedding cake with mediocre flavor. Here are some ideas for working with your pastry chef to create a really delicious wedding cake that tastes as good as the wedding cakes pictures.
Do a little homework. Search the Internet and determine what you like especially if you are in Phoenix. Do you like a tall skinny cake? Do you like a simple texture? Something more elaborate? Do you like fresh flowers? Sugar flowers? No flowers? Do you like round cakes, square cakes or some other shape? Do you like the tiers to be stacked one tier on top of the other, or do you prefer space? Or satellite cakes?
Once you know the cake styles that appeal to you, schedule a consultation with your cake designer or start a dialog via email. Provide pictures of cakes so that your designer knows what appeals to you and so that they can help you design the perfect wedding cake.
Set a Budget!
Decide on your budget. Once you’ve got some idea of the type of cake you’d like, you’ll need to work out how much money you have to spend on the cake. Be realistic and compare the prices of various cake vendors. When it gets down to the time of choosing the baker, you can ask for quotes and then compare these and ask for discounts where appropriate.
Taste is important
Wedding cakes are not just about its looks and how it makes you feel, they should taste fantastic too – that’s the essence of cakes. Most bakers offer free samples for you to test the quality and flavor of the cake. If they do not allow this, jump to the next store
A good consultation will also provide you with other options or ways to make sure all your needs are being met.
Choose a bakery/vendor
Now that you’ve tasted all the cakes and determined the style, size, design and price range, it’s time to pick a bakery or cake vendor such as Silver Rose Bakery located in Phoenix, AZ for example. Ideally during all of the consulting and tasting you did with various vendors you will have met one that suited your needs and seemed like they would work well with you and your other vendors. If not, keep shopping around until you find one that fits your criteria.
Give yourself enough time
Typically, three to six months before the wedding is enough time to plan the cake. You’ll want to leave yourself plenty of time to come up with a style and design, and then shop around for bakery options. If you’re having your wedding during the busy “wedding season, give yourself a little extra time to find the right bakery because wedding cakes will be in high demand and could be completely booked out for the time frame you are looking for. You definitely won’t want to leave the cake to the last minute and cause unnecessary stress in the weeks leading up to the big day.

As they once stated:
Your first experience is typically from an online review
One way to determine if the cake designer is worth the initial interaction is through their online reviews.
Did you know: 90% of consumers read less than 10 reviews before forming an opinion about a business.
In this digital media age, there are hundreds of directories and applications that people use to give their opinion on all kinds of businesses. With the big push on freedom of speech and being able to express oneself, people are more than happy to write about their experiences, especially bad ones!
