When it comes to ordering your wedding cake, it can be tough to know where to start. The cake and desserts served at weddings are often the most loved part of the wedding for guests. Seeing the bride and groom cut the cake together is a memorable moment, and following delicious food with something sweet is always desirable.

Choosing a baker and planning the logistics will be your first steps to ordering your wedding cake. You must know your venue, your presentation/theme, and the table in which your cake will be placed in the wedding venue. These elements help you decide on the style and size of the cake when ordering from the baker.

Picking up the cake on the day of the wedding will also depend on the baker in which you choose. Will you get your cake locally? Or will you have someone pick up or drop off the cake? You will want to plan a tasting with the baker beforehand.

When you go for your tasting, try different and exotic flavors. The chocolate and vanilla are classics, but try turtle, truffle, marble, raspberry and double chocolate, too. You’ll want to satisfy everyone, as everyone loves all different types of flavors.

You can sit down with your baker at your tasting to talk about style, theme, and color. Do you want a double, triple, or quadruple layer cake? Do you want additional sweets like cupcakes, cannolis, or pastries to accompany your cake on the side? How do you want to serve the cake? Work through all of these details, one step at a time.
