How many Servings? – Estimate how many guests you will be feeding. You will then have an idea of how large a cake you will need.
If you are on a tight budget, you can simply have a display cake that looks great for photos. This display cake will look good but will only have one real layer on top to cut into. Make sure you have someone assigned to the cutting and serving of the cake. Done right, no one will question it and you would’ve saved a lot of money.
Some cakes look lovely, but taste terrible. Make sure your cake maker will allow you to taste your choices! Cake makers will offer different fillings and different frostings, make sure you taste them all and chose your favourite.
Beware of amateur cake makers. Make sure you can visit, chat and taste the cake, get references and a written contract.
A piece of cake
The one thing I will say is that you ought to assign someone to ensure that your portion of the cake is kept aside otherwise it WILL get eaten. I am a living witness!!
