- Always have a professional deliver your cake.
- Make sure the baker will replace your cake if something were to happen during their delivery.
- Keep it out of direct sun (inside or out).
- Let you cake baker know the set up location for the cake.
- Have it delivered no more than 2 hours prior to ceremony (if able to have it delivered 2 hours prior to reception even better)
- Make sure your cake is baked the week of your wedding. (Fresh is SO much better than frozen and thawed)
- Order the correct number of pieces.
- Always have your caterers cut the cake - You family and friends don't know how to cut a cake to keep its structural integrity or get the appropriate number of pieces.
- Have extra flowers on hand just in case you need to add to the look of the cake.
- Pack up two to-go pieces right up front to guarantee you and your husband get a piece
