Our tips: Book your cake maker

You and your partner may already have a general idea of what you like and dislike. The cake cutting is a memorable moment on your wedding day and you want it to not only look jaw dropping upon reveal, but also taste delicious. It should fit with the style and size of your wedding.

Make sure to book your cake in advance to avoid disappointment and rushed decisions. We also recommend here to go for a cake tasting and consultation if possible. Go prepared with pictures of what you have in mind and what the budget constraints are. Your cake designer will guide your choices, from design to flavour to decor possibilities.

It’s best to decide on the details of your wedding cake as soon as you have a clear picture of the style and colours of the day. Will the cake be the dessert or be served as part of your dessert course? This will influence the size and perhaps also the flavour(s). Do you prefer modern and a bit edgy or are you romantic and whimsical?

Add a beautiful stand and toppers for a truly impressive wedding cake. There are so many exciting options!

Instead of a served dessert course, opt for a dessert table. For us, this is one of the best ideas to add to your wedding day. It is a focal point and your guests can explore a variety of smaller dessert options over a couple of hours and after the dance floor has opened.
