1. Personal Touch

Meet with your cake designer, as it’s only through conversation and brainstorming that the designer can really get an understanding of your style.

2. Your Theme

Your wedding dress, venue, colour scheme and chosen flowers may be incorporated into the design of your cake. Knowing these will help with the design process.

3. Taste the Difference

Make sure you taste the cake flavours with the accompanied fillings.

If you’re considering 3 tiers, taste 4 flavours and so on. The taste of the cake is as important as the design and a great taste can only be achieved by using the finest ingredients.

Older guests may prefer fruit, children will love chocolate and younger guests might prefer something a bit different, such as rhubarb

and ginger or pecan and maple.

4.. How Many Tiers?

The number and size of the cake tiers is generally decided on by the number of guests or servings you require. However, if you like the idea of having a larger cake, you can always ask to use dummy tiers, iced to match.
