If you've received a celebratory cake, you'll know how amazing it feels, particularly the thought and love that has gone into it, to get it to you. Equally, when you're in charge of getting a cake for an event, you're know what a pleasure it is, although a little stressful!!
So whether it's for a birthday, retirement, anniversary, cake is such a great way to show your love for the person(s) and it gives that personal touch to your event. Remember as a Style Card holder, you'll get 10% off the price of any of the cakes that you order.
Whether you're 2 or 60 or anything inbetween, there's something really great about receiving a bespoke cake, whether its the gift or part of celebratory tea, but where do you start? Being bespoke means there's a lot of decisions to be made about the cake and it's your job to get that message over to the baker choosing the right cake, the right theme and getting the personality of that person into the cake.
Little Miss Alice Cakes Tips on Choosing the Right Cake and the Right Baker
Start thinking about the type of cake you want well inadvance - if it's for somebody else think about the person or occasion and what you want the cake to convey.
Find out their favourite flavour – There are a million flavours out there – vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch, hazelnut, strawberry, Mississippi mud pie, coffee, blueberry and I could go on and on. You get the gist!
Decide the shape of your cake – A cake is a special something. The shape of a cake must mean something to the person who is celebrating it.
Decide the size of your cake – Depending on the number of guests, decide the quantity of cake to order.
Once you've sorted the cake you have to think about the practicalities, it seems everybody every where is baking for a living. Look at these tips to help guarantee your cake is part of a successful celebration.
Before selecting a baker, go off recommendations from friends/family and Facebook, social media reviews.
Stay clear of cheap cake - if it's too good to be true, it probably is. You don't want a rubbish cake to dampen your celebration.
Make sure your baker is registered with the local council; make sure they have a good hygiene rating and have completed food safety training and are fully insured.
Book well inadvance - you would be surprised at the number of last minute requests made to bakers!! Remember you're not the only one wanting a cake.
