Albuquerque Wedding Cakes

When planning a wedding, you definitely want your wedding cake to fit your vision of what you want for your overall wedding picture. Your wedding cake is one of the stars of your show afterall. There are some issues you will need to figure out before you seek out a baker. Taste and design are your two biggest issues that you want to be most concerned with. The Albuquerque area has some amazingly talented bakers. We would like to help you find the cake maker of your dreams so we have provided you with a brief wedding cake planning guide. We wish you well in your search.

A Wedding Cake is a Multi-Options Selection

The first thing you need to know is that wedding cakes have come a long way since the 1950s and 1960s. You are wedded to a traditional look or just white cake. So, what you need to do is to figure out your style. This is your special day and you can be as creative as you want to be or feel like being. Browse through hundreds of wedding cake photos and try to pin down a sense of what you like and what you don't like. Maybe you really gravitate to a striped cake or a tall and thin cake. Its all up to you. Beyond the traditional round cake, square cakes have really come on strong in popularity in recent years. And believe it or not, you will also see hexagonal, oval, even pedal and triangular cakes. When it comes to icing, you also have options. Buttercream stays soft and is easy to cut, but Fondant is also a popular option as it makes a very smooth surface for additional decorating.

Some Tips on Wedding Cake Budget

What about price? What should you expect to pay for a wedding cake? Generally, bakers charge by the slice. You can expect to pay anywhere from $1.50 up to $20 a slice. The more complicated your cake is the more expensive it will be. Fondant is more expensive than buttercream. One way to cut costs is to have a well designed cake of your dreams made to a smaller scale and then to serve your guests sheets cakes. You will want to ask your cake maker if this is a possibility because some actually refuse to make this an option. All in all, talk to your baker about how you can have something created that will be pleasing to you but yet not break your wallet.

We recommend that you read reviews of local wedding cake bakers. Come up with a list of three and setup a face to face meeting. Make sure that you take images of cakes that you really like and show them to each potential baker. Also, you will want to show them the color scheme of your wedding. They should provide you with numerous samples to taste. While you want the cake to look amazing, you also want it to taste amazing.

Once you have had your minimum of three interviews, book the baker who most meets your standards in terms of design, taste and cost. You will more than likely be asked for a deposit and you will definitely want to sign a contract. Make sure that everything is spelled out in the contract including when the cake will be made, the time it will be delivered and who is in charge of setup.

Who will dress up the display table? We suggest that your cake maker be a major part of how your cake will be displayed because they have the experience in how it will best look on certain stands and with specific lighting. One last thing we want you to make sure of, make sure in all of the wedding activity on your special day, that you sit down and enjoy a piece of your cake, you have earned it.
