Wedding Cake Baker - Piping Frosting on Wedding Cake

Think of wedding cakes as white, tiered creations?  They can be, white cakes are traditional and some couples still want them but today many brides want something modern and creative.  You can see some very original, artistic wedding cakes on the WEtv show, Amazing Wedding Cakes, and The Learning Channel (TLC) show, Cake Boss.  Both programs show you how cakes are made and give you insights into the way bakers work.

Here are some of tips that will help you and your bride and groom work well with bakers:

  • Bakers can incorporate colors and design elements from “Save the Date” cards, invitations, and the reception venue into cakes.  Have your couple bring their cards and photos of their reception venue to their meeting for inspiration.
  • Bakeries may require that any requests for changes be made at least a week in advance.  Confirm that the bride and groom know their cut-off date so they won’t be upset when they can’t make a change.
  • During the wedding season, popular bakers may have 25 to 30 cakes to deliver in one day.  Ask what the baker’s schedule is and confirm their delivery time and date the day before the wedding.
  • Traffic and parking can be a problem during delivery.  Make sure the baker knows where to park and what entrance to use when they deliver the cake.  Warn them if heavy traffic may be an issue near the reception site so they can allow extra time.

Both Amazing Wedding Cakes and Cake Boss have “repeat performances” so check the WEtv and TLC websites or your local television listings for schedule information.  You’ll also see photos of the cakes on the sites.
