Become a Top Wedding Planner – Be a Wedding Cake Expert

 

When you are a wedding planner you will need to become an expert on all the details of a wedding, including the cake.  Last January, Martha Stewart put out a book on wedding cakes.  This year Sylvia Weinstock, the “Leonardo da Vinci of Cakes”, has put out a new one of her own entitled, Sylvia Weinstock’s Sensational Cakes.  You’ve probably seen Sylvia on television in reality programs such as “Whose Wedding is it Anyway?” and “Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane”.  All of her cakes are custom-designed works of art.

InStyleWeddings magazine interviewed Sylvia and got these 5 tips about selecting a wedding cake:

1. The bride needs to find her style.  Style takes into consideration the date, time and location of the reception and the number of guests.

2. Be realistic about the budget.  The bride shouldn’t go into debt over her cake.

3. Taste is important.  Years ago a heard the caterer of a famous spa speak and she reminded us that the cake, or dessert, is the last thing guests get before they leave so it will be something they will truly remember.  Make sure it tastes good and make sure it is fresh!

4. Ask for a sketch.  Professional cake designers will work with a couple to design a customized cake, not just copy one they have done before.

5. Chose faux flowers.  I know a lot of brides like real flowers on their cakes but as Sylvia points out, they can “wither and droop” and they also might have been sprayed with pesticides.

Check out Sylvia’s new book and get tips and inspiration for for wedding cakes for your brides.
