When shopping around for your wedding cake, be aware of what the cake vendors wish you knew:

Delicious, sweet and much-expected, your wedding cake is really important for the success of your Big Day. Not only should it taste amazing, but it should also reflect your wedding décor, and, ultimately, your own personality and aspirations as a couple.

That may seem like a tough “task” for a cake – but, in reality, the best wedding cakes are those which “borrow” from the couple’s personality and make this dessert a true symbol of love and commitment.

Beyond all this, though, what are some of the most important things wedding cake vendors wish you knew? We have gathered them right below – so read on and find out more.

·       The cake should actually be quite large. A five-tier cake is meant to serve about 200 guests –so don’t go lower than that if you want to have a very large wedding. However, if you are keen on having a small, one-tier cake (for financial reasons or otherwise), you still have options. For example, you could display a smaller cake and serve people with sheet cake in the same flavor, or, why not, you could have multiple smaller cakes displayed (but make sure everyone can get at least one slice!).

·       The cake should be able to withstand the temperature. This makes it more difficult for outdoor wedding brides, but not impossible. Both fondant and buttercream can melt and get completely ruined in high heats – so if you want an outdoor wedding, consider keeping the cake away, in a cool place, until you have to cut it.

·       Last, but definitely not least, not all cake designs are 100% imitable. For starters, each cake chef has their own style, so they may not be able to copy your Pinterest idea with precision. What’s more, the Internet can, indeed, be a great source of inspiration for brides and grooms – but remember that sometimes, your vendor may simply not have the tools or the products needed to create a particular cake design.
