THINGS TO DECIDE
1. What is your budget?
When wedding planning, your budget should be considered with EVERY aspect. You should know the total budget for your wedding and also how much of it is earmarked for your cake. Then you have to decide what you want from your cake (STEP 2 BELOW). The way to look at a wedding cake is not the TOTAL price but to look at the PRICE PER PERSON. The rule of thumb is that the fancier and more complex a cake is, the more it will cost for your Cake. Rest assured, no matter what your budget is, I always find a way to get you the cake of your dreams.
2. What do you want from your cake?
Some people want their cake to be the center piece. They want it to wow their friends and family and make a real statement. Some people just want to feed their family and friends some delicious cake and not bust the bank. When planning your wedding, decide what you want from your cake design. It is important to know what you want from your cake as it will influence both the price and the design. The one thing we can guarantee is that no matter what kind of cake you have in mind, it will both look great and be absolutely delicious.
3. How many people is your cake for?
Thecorner stone o f wedding planning is knowing how many people will be at your celebration. Once you know that, you need to decide whether you want a slice for everyone at the wedding, or just a portion of the people attending, it is important to know how many people you want to feed, because that will obviously influence how large the cake should be, which is the starting point of the whole process. I use the Wilton Cake Cutting Guide to describe the slice sizes, which are 1.5”X 2”X 4”.
4. What type of cake do you want?
There are many different types of cakes. From modern to traditional, from slab cakes to multi-tiered. The options are endless. I have some terrific albums and catalogs for you to look through at our bakery, but it never hurts to do some research before you come in. Look online at the pictures on our website as well as in wedding magazines. If you have a specific cake in mind, you can always bring in a picture and we can work from that picture. But remember, the more you know about what you want, the smoother things will go.
The tradition of the groom's cake came from the south where southern belles would get a special cake for their grooms. While the wedding cake is traditionally a white tiered cake, a groom's cake is usually in a shape or design that reflects the groom's personality or interest. So, you could have a groom's cake in the shape of a baseball stadium if your groom is a baseball fan, or the Golden Gate Bridge if your husband-to-be is an architect or engineer.
The groom's cake is typically ordered by the bride as an unexpected surprise for her groom. We can help you design a groom's cake in our Boise bakery when you come in for your wedding cake consultation.
You can use the groom's cake any way you please. The cake can be served at the rehearsal dinner, or displayed next to the wedding cake at the reception.
It is not mandatory to have a groom's cake at the wedding, but having one can be a fun surprise for your husband.
