Choosing the right Cake Artist for your wedding day

So you’ve booked your wedding venue, you've seen the perfect dress, your Pinterest is full of beautiful flowers and décor ideas and you have your heart set on a 5 tier cake adorned with a cascade of handmade sugar flowers. All sounds perfect yes?

So how exactly do you find the right Cake Artist to make your dream cake?

What sort of budget should you have for the cake?

How many servings do you need?

Do you need a cake stand?

What about the flavours?

There really are so many questions to be answered!

Firstly, always do your research! Use social media, Google, Instagram and of course word of mouth and recommendations are vital to find the right Cake Artist.

Then, book a design consultation with your chosen cake designer (be prepared for a small charge for this, this charge will then come off the balance of your cake when you book).

Go to your consultation with plenty of ideas and pictures you've seen, with any themes & colours you like.

Whilst there, be sure to discuss the budget, remembering to be open, honest and realistic about what you can spend, especially if you want a custom designed, bespoke wedding cake.

Some cake designs can take days and days to make all of the decorations and details, and remember the cake artist isn’t just charging you for the ingredients to make a cake but also also for their time.

Your chosen Cake Artist will`guide you through the booking of your cake, serving requirements, deposit payments, tasters, cake stand hire and the delivery & set up of your cake, and they will always be happy to answer any questions.
