Questions You Need to Ask Your Cake Baker

1. What are my filling choices?

Whether you’re looking for a fruity filling, like strawberry or orange, or a heavier one, like mocha or chocolate, the type of ingredients used will make all the difference in taste. Exotic options, like passion fruit, may cost you, so ask if sourcing uncommon ingredients will run up the bill. Some common filling ingredients: fresh fruits or purees, mousses and buttercream.

2. Do you work with fondant or buttercream?

Some bakers specialize in fondant, while others prefer buttercream. And some do both. If you have your heart set on one type of frosting, confirm your baker can work with it.

3.  Who will make my wedding cake?

Some bakeries house a baker and a designer; at others, one person creates the entire cake from batter to sugar flowers. Find out how many people work with the baker and who exactly will be making your cake. The number of people involved should have no bearing on the quality of your cake, but you’ll want to talk design with the right person.

4. How are your cakes priced?

It’s common for some cakes (e.g. wedding cakes) to be priced by the slice. And the price will increase depending on the complexity of flavors and fillings you’re after (and how detailed the design is). This goes for custom-designed cakes as well.

5. What’s the delivery process?

It’s best to have the cake delivered you. Some bakers will charge a delivery fee, so ask them from the start and factor it into your cake budget. It’s also worth it to ask if they’ve delivered to your venue / home before. If they have, you know they’ll be able to find their way into your space with ease (think: service entrances, freight elevators, kitchen access for last-minute touch-ups).
