WHO is going to create your delicious work of art? There are two types of places that you can look for when searching for the right Cake Artist for you. One is a bakery. Many bakeries, while their main business is pastries, small cakes, and cookies being sold in the store front, typically also create wonderful wedding and specialty cakes. The other type of business, which is what we here at Cake Devils are, is a Custom Cake Artist. We are a fully licensed and insured, solely custom, made to order cakery. Everything we make is baked fresh, from scratch, in small batches with high quality ingredients, just before you need your order. While we are extremely easy to contact and work with, you can only meet with us in person by appointment. This is because we are a 2 person operation and give every order all the time, love and attention that it needs and deserves. This means, when we are creating your delicious, beautiful, masterpiece of a wedding cake, we won’t be interrupted. Our full focus will be on your cake.
The second step to planning ahead is the DESIGN of your cake. If you already have some ideas, then you’re ahead of the game. Tell your cake artist your thoughts. Here at Cake Devils we’re great at taking your ideas and turning them into a fabulous cake! If you don’t have any ideas yet, start looking on-line. Create a folder of cakes you like. Do you see a trend? Is there something about all the cakes that you like that is consistent? Email some of these pictures to your cake artist. Let them see what you like!
Long gone are the rules of traditional wedding cakes. So, be creative, express yourself. Do you want to incorporate your wedding colors? How about replicating some of the fabric, pearls or jewels on your dress? Do you want your cake to be a color instead of white? Do you like the more traditional all white cake with scrolls and piping? You can do whatever you’d like. Do you like a lot of flowers on your cake or a more minimal approach? Or you can even do a cake like the one seen below, covered in all rosettes.
Speaking of flowers, real flowers or sugar flowers? Here at Cake Devils, we highly recommend any type of sugar flower. Real flowers are beautiful; your florist adds so much beauty to your wedding day, however, fresh flowers are not a food product, and may contain things like pesticides or contaminants that can then get on your special cake and then into the mouths of your guest. Sugar flowers are beautiful and edible and come in the form of Buttercream (soft and buttery), Royal Icing (hard and crunchy, like a candy dot), and Sugar Paste (dry like porcelain and are the most realistic of them all, many people think they are real.)
THEME cakes are huge. We’re seeing a big trend of GROOMS CAKES hitting our area. Grooms Cakes have been around in the south, but it seems that couples in our area want a theme cake at their wedding now too! What a great way to express a hobby or a love for something with an amazing specialty cake at your wedding to go with your wedding cake! Your wedding cake artist should be able to provide and deliver both of these cakes for you.
One thing more to keep in mind, is that you don’t want too many opinions. Ask only a few of the people closest too you. You’ll notice that here at Cake Devils, we hold tastings for up to 4 people. This is because too many people bring too many opinions. It can make you second guess yourself and your choices. Feel good about the decisions you make in planning your wedding. It’s your day!
The very last and most important step after you’ve booked your cake is to love what you’ve decided on and feel great about it! Cake is happy, delicious and beautiful! Trust Cake Devils (or your chosen cake provider) to deliver your Delicious Masterpiece and amazing Grooms Cake on your special day!
We hope you've found this information useful! Please feel free to browse our website and contact us with any questions! We're also available for all your cake needs, not just weddings! So keep us in mind for your engagement party, bridal shower and all other parties too!
