Now that you’ve found your wedding cake design and has allotted a budget for it, it’s time to find the RIGHT cake baker to execute your dream. However, you can skip this step if your reception site has an exclusive baker and won’t allow outside bakers. Now that will leave you more time to work on other wedding stuff, nice! Anyway, if the reception site does allow outside bakers, it is advised that you choose LOCAL wedding cake bakers. You might have a favorite baker but if she’s back in New York while you’re having the wedding in California, the logistics itself is a nightmare! So forget about it and go local — just find the best!
Before choosing your cake baker, shop around! Book appointments to view their portfolios, and ask to taste some cake samples to determine the talents of your baker. Consider look, taste and price of their previous wedding cakes. The baker you choose should be able to create your dream wedding cake at a price you can afford, and it should taste delicious as well! Also very important is that you are able to COMMUNICATE well with your baker. She should be able to get your cake vision so she can execute it well. You can ask the local people on who’s the popular and affordable baker in their area. Remember, locals know best! And last, sign a CONTRACT. Make sure it’s detailed, with insurance and covers everything you want. Good luck! ^_^
