9 Reasons why you should choose a professional cake maker to make your wedding cake for you
O.K. so you may be managing your budget and have decided to make your own cake, but be very careful should you decide you want to choose a d.i.y. wedding cake. Here are 9 reasons why you should consider choosing a professional cake maker to make your cake for you:-
1.) Where are you planning on making the cake, do you have ample oven, fridge and work space?
2.) Does the kitchen have a ‘Sanidad Certificate? Most hotels will not allow cakes to be consumed on their premises if the cakes are made in a kitchen without one!
3.) Who will deliver and set the cake up?
4.) Can you manage cake making, decorating and delivering in the extreme Spanish heat with all your other wedding preparations?
5.) Sourcing your supplies as sugarcraft supplies are not readily available in supermarkets here like they are in the UK.
6.) Does your cake need and if yes, do you have a cake stand?
7.) Don’t forget cakes that sit on top of one another need to be supported internally with dowels so the cake does not collapse – are you confident you can do this?
8.) Do you have guests with specific dietary requirements or allergies that need to be catered for?
9.) Do you have enough time in your hectic pre wedding schedule to devote to cake making and decorating, after all this is not a quick fix option?
Are you confident that you can really create a wedding cake showstopper or will it be more a case of wedding cake disaster? Think very carefully before embarking upon this challenge it may seem like a good idea at the start but it may well be a case of false economy and turn out to be a very costly, stressful & disappointing exercise.
