Choosing your wedding cake and wedding cake topper for your special day can, at first, seem like a major problem for someone who has no idea where to start in the process.
Consider whether or not you have to adhere to a budget. If you do have to consider keeping in the confines of a monetary limit, set that amount firmly in your thoughts and proceed from there. If not, then you will be more likely to find something that is uniquely made and special, just for you.
Try and anticipate just exactly how many this confection has to serve. The bigger the number of guests, the bigger the cake will need to be. Assume that everyone you have invited has responded positively and will, indeed, be coming to the reception.
See if anyone you know has any recommendations for any bakery that has served them successfully. Look at the various wedding cake toppers to pick the one that you like best. If not, see if there are any bridal shows being held in your area (many take place in the first month or so of the year) where you can go and see examples of what local specialty bakeries have to offer.
Many of them will have portfolios featuring pictures of their past wedding cake creations to give you a better idea of what they are capable of producing. If you see anything that particularly impresses you, be sure you get one of their business cards so you can make an appointment to meet with them and discuss your needs at a later time.
Make an appointment with the one or two bakeries where you would like to have a cake tasting. At this tasting the bakery will offer you and any who accompany you, several different examples of the flavors of cakes and fillings that they can offer you.
Try to have an idea of what you might prefer. These bakeries have a good idea of how big a wedding cake will be needed to serve the number of guests you are expecting.
Discuss what kind of wedding cake you would like to have as well as the wedding cake topper that will look best with it. This includes the shape of the cake, what kinds of colors or special decorations you would like to see.
If you have a preference for wedding cake topper (like a ceramic or porcelain piece or using fresh flowers that reflect those used for the bridal bouquet or other decorations), now is the time to discuss them. Depending on the ingredients used, the amount of labor that goes into the production, size and the use of non-edible decorations like hanging Austrian crystals, all will affect the cost of the cake. It is not unusual for a relatively modest cake to start at $500, with costs going up to $1500 and over for larger creations.
