3 Steps to Finding the Perfect Cake

By GigSalad

These days, with so many options, how do you find the perfect cake for your event? There’s red velvet, lemon meringue, chocolate, marble, carrot, or maybe traditional vanilla. Others may choose to divert from the traditional choosing cupcakes, truffles, chocolate confections, cookies, or a dessert buffet (for those who just can’t decide!). So where do you begin? We can help. 


1. Search for the Right Bakery

Choosing a bakery is tough. It can be even tougher if you or your guests have specific dietary guidelines such as gluten-free, vegan, Kosher, and organic options. Luckily, more bakeries are becoming aware of allergies or restrictions and offer delicious alternatives.  Do a quick search for a cake designer in your area to find a professional who can work with your specifications.


2. Choose Your Style

Are you a cupcake fan? Or are you a chocolate lover at heart? Or does a traditional tiered cake tickle your fancy? Whatever style of sweets you prefer, bakeries and cake designers can customize a dessert that fits your party’s theme or purpose.  A dessert buffet is always a fun option, as well. You can have all your favorite goodies in one place from a chocolate fountain and truffles to fruit tart and pastries.


3. Find Your Filling

Whether you go with one large cake or varying types of cupcakes, you then must decide the type, filling, and frosting. So many decisions! However, this is where the yummy part begins—cake tastings! On top of the type of cake—such as red velvet, chocolate, or carrot—you can also choose a rich filling to complement the flavor. Filling options like fruit, mousse, and cream cheese are great crowd pleasers. Schedule a tasting with your baker to decide which one is just right for you and your guests.

Above all, have fun with your cake! A little indulgence never hurt anyone, especially on a day of celebration. And if you’re looking for other wedding services, visit GigSalad to book the best!
