Mishap Monday - This Takes the Cake!

There are a lot of mishaps surrounding wedding cakes. From being dropped when delivered, icing melting in the summer sun, falling over before the cake cutting, and many more! Here are some suggestions to prevent a cake crisis.

  • 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

It's possible to have you cake and eat it too, if you have the right cake baker! Taking these tips to heart will allow you to enjoy every wonderful bit!
