Look for a Professional Cake Designer

And you’ll likely need additional layers for more guests. Find the size that is suitable for the number of guest that are expected to be in your wedding.

Decide on a budget

Note down the amount of money you are willing to spend on a wedding cake and make sure to communicate this to your designer. The more complicated the cake, the higher the price tag. Select different cakes based on their style, size and design and then compare their prices, to get a general idea of what you will settle for.

If the type of cake you want is out of your budget, then you should make adjustments to reduce the price. Also, ask the designer for suggestions to make the process less stressful and quicker.

Consider your venue

Another thing to consider when selecting a wedding cake is the venue. Make sure that the size and style of the cake fits the space available for it. Also, keep the temperature in mind. When choosing the frosting on the cake, consider if the wedding will be indoors or outdoors.
