Cherry Blossom Cake
It’s springtime and there are some fabulous cakes out there to help celebrate your wedding in style.
A question was asked on Facebook recently about where to find an extravagant and inexpensive wedding cake. Seem like a contradiction? Well it depends on how the bride defines extravagant…and inexpensive.
First thing is to define your cake budget. The next is to ask what makes a cake extravagant to you? Is it color, tall tiers, flowers, pearls, beads, fondant? Try to get specific. When that gets more clearly defined then we can determine if the two can team up to satisfy your cake sweet spot.
If not, an alternative is to do a small one or two tier cake that is extravagant (as your budget allows) and have sheet cakes in the back for serving. There is normally a way to accomplish our wedding style wishes if we are willing to be a bit flexible.
A few things to look for in a Wedding Cake Baker:
- You like the taste and texture of their cake
- You like their cake decorating skills (see picture of real cakes for real weddings not magazine shoots)
- Their pricing/fees are in your budget
- Their personality is easy to work with (they will set your cake up on your wedding day make sure they are professional and prompt) and if they can work well with your florist
- Their cake stands they use to display your cake are pretty (or you can provide one).
Now it’s your turn. How do you define an extravagant cake? I would love to hear from you below.
