May I Take Your Order?
The Tea on Ordering Your Wedding Cake
When to Order
Plan to order your wedding cake 6 months to 1 year in advance of your wedding date.
Wedding cakes are extremely important to plan for, you will spend time working with your cake designer settling on design, flavors and details.
Wedding cake ordering is not a process to rush. Often there are supplies that need to be ordered and things to prep.
Booked & Busy
In addition to this, many cake designers often book dates one year or more in advance and take limited orders per weekend.
I typically only accept one wedding per weekend day to ensure that each cake receives the attention needed to be PERFECT!
So, it is wise to reach out to the cake designer that you wish to work with as soon as you have your date, venue, and event aesthetics to make sure that that your date is available.
The Cost of Custom Wedding Cakes
Custom cakes are exactly what their name says about them: Custom!
It is important to keep in mind that all things custom are tailored to the wants and needs of the person who they are being created for.
With this in mind, custom cakes typically range in price from as low as $5 per serving to as much as $20+ per serving.
Money Money Money
The cost per serving varies based on the skill level of the cake designer, the quality of the ingredients used, the intricacies of the cake design, and the market value of the area where you are getting married.
