Lets Cake It Up!


            Cake selecting is a very fun and exciting part of the wedding experience. There are so many things from, tasting, style, design, flavor, shape, and so much more! But how do brides know what to select? How do they go about it in the first place? We at You’re The Bride know how to help!
            To start you need to know the theme, date, guest count, and location of your wedding before heading to the baker. After you have all of these details then you are ready to start cake shopping! Be sure to pick your cake at least 6 months in advance to be sure your date is available for delivery.
            Depending on the shape of cake you want will determine the serving amount. Check the chart below, keep in mind these are averages and to double check with your baker upon ordering.

 When you have decided on the type and amount of cake you want then choose the style, colors, toppers, and accessories desired. Be sure to schedule a tasting before placing an order so you know what you’re getting!
            When ready to order be prepared to put down a deposit of about half the total charge for the cake. Bakers may take off the charge for the tasting if you book your cake with them.

Congratulations on your engagement and go taste some cake!
