Let Them Eat Cake

Tips for planning your wedding cake:

What do you want from your cake?

  • Are you serving your cake to your guests?
    • If so, what is your number of guests:_____________
    • Who will serve your cake? 
      • Does your caterer offer this service or do you have family/friend who will do it.
  • If you are not serving it to your guests, will you want all of the cake layers to be real cake?
    • Some pay do a rice crispy layer or styrofoam if not intending to serve.
      • This option can save money but not all decorators will give this option.
  • What type of cake do you want? What flavor?
    • All layers the same flavor?
  • Do you want any filling in the cake?
  • Type of cake?
    • Flat or multiple tiers
  • Shape of cake?
