 5 Tips To Consider Before Meeting Your Cake Designer.Hey Gorgeous! I hope your weekend was outstanding. Mine was okay, I enjoyed spending time with my family and watching formula 1. I was going through some of my old posts and rediscovered this one, so I thought I’d share it again because when I first shared it, many of you had not yet subscribed.

When it comes to cakes there are so many different options to choose from, not to mention the art that goes into decorating a wedding cake. So here are 5 Tips To Consider Before Meeting Your Cake Designer. 5 Tips To Consider Before Meeting Your Cake Designer.

1.Be honest about your budget: Every couple will have a different budget and I’m sure you want to save but please be honest with your baker. They can suggest money saving ideas without compromising on the look or quality, by suggesting different methods, flavours or fillings. Make sure you have a tasting first before agreeing to anything.

2. Be Creative: A good cake designer will listen to your ideas and make sketches of cakes that you might like, so don’t be afraid to communicate your ideas to them. 5 Tips To Consider Before Meeting Your Cake Designer.

3.  Be Original: You don’t have to follow trends; you can design a cake that is unique to you. Incorporate things you like on your cake. If you both love music why not have musical instrument on the cake.

4. Size: If you love elaborate and big cakes but can’t afford it, you can have a few fake tiers, most people think that fake cakes are tacky but I beg to differ, look at all these cakes that Iwona of Mk Cakes did for my photo shoot. I bet some of you actually thought they were real. 5 Tips To Consider Before Meeting Your Cake Designer.

5. Cupcakes: Instead of having traditional tiered cake opt for a small one,  then stack up cupcakes on a multi tier cake stand.
