Choosing a Wedding Cake Baker

When it comes to planning a wedding, we know there are many options to consider. Spring or fall, plated or buffet, cake or cupcakes, the list goes on and on.  We hope we can help you make your wedding planning process a little more simple.

Here at Maribelle Cakery, we are known for many things: using the freshest and finest, ingredients, our deliciously smooth buttercream, and our hand crafted sugar flowers.  Our goal is to provide each couple with the wedding cake of their dreams.

When it comes to choosing a bakery, there are many things to consider:

  1. Set your budget. Having a clear budget in mind will allow you to figure out which bakeries are in your budget.
  2. Plan early! Book your wedding cake at least six months out, or earlier.  Spring and fall are busy times for weddings, if you wait too long, you may find that you aren’t able to book with your first choice.
  3. Find a baker who specializes in the cake design you like.
  4. Bakeries or Home bakers.  Home bakers may not have the staff to help if they are sick or they have an emergency. Also you need to make sure they are licensed in your city to sell from their home and are insured. We get calls all the time from Brides stating that their home baker cancelled last minute and they don’t know what to do.  That can be an added stress no couple needs before their wedding.
  5. Sample Cake.  A cake tasting not only allows you to sample cake but gives you a better idea of who will be making your cake.
  6. Be realistic, all those cake television shows don’t share all the time and work that goes into making a master piece.   So understand that pricing is tied to the time and ingredients for your cake.  If you want a monstrosity of a cake, the price tag will follow. 
  7. Lastly, make the decision to enjoy the process all the way through until your wedding day. This is a special time, so enjoy it. Don’t stress about it. If you are feeling stressed, reach out, we are here to help.
