When it comes to wedding preparations, one of the sweetest choices you get to make is your wedding cake! A tiered treat or a small personal cake for your elopement or your micro event in Greece? With real blooms or sugar flowers? An elaborate watercolor design or an artful hand-painted creation? Which one would you opt in for your Greek wedding?
We, as your wedding planners, of course know that this is something that goes hand in hand with the rest of your wedding’s design, and so we teamed up with “The Cakers” so to bring you here a brief article on the top 3 criteria you should have when choosing your wedding cake maker for your wedding in Greece.
Ask for a wedding cake tasting experience
As we are still in the midst of a pandemic, make sure that you will work with Greek companies with updated health protocols to ensure the safety of their staff and clients. Also, due to social distancing practices, some cake decorating studios offer to-go tastings. So don’t hesitate to ask for a cake tasting assortment that you can enjoy from the comfort and safety of your own home. If of course you are planning for a destination wedding in Greece, your wedding planner can arrange for you a cake tasting experience during your site inspection visit in Greece.
When it comes to flavor, the shortlist is the hardest thing to do! You love chocolate but your fiancé loves carrot cake? THE CAKERS team will find a way to make a sweet combination, as they tend to bake a different cake and filling for each layer, while they always add a dash of care and love into every recipe they make!
“During a tasting, you will discuss way more than flavor combos. Furthermore, forming a connection with your cake decorator is very important, as it will make the process easier and more fun. Every couple has a story to share and each cake is created to tell it. We would love to sit and discuss with you, along with a glass of champagne and help you choose the perfect cake to mark your special occasion, as we firmly believe that no order is too small, whether it is a single-tiered or multi-tiered cake. Vanilla, lemon, champagne, chocolate and red velvet, are just some of our cake flavors, while chocolate mousse, peanut butter, pastry cream and fresh fruits, are included in our filling choices. Although, we’re always willing to work with clients to make custom flavor requests for their wedding day”, says Luisa from the Cakers.
Discuss and stick to your wedding's design and theme
Wedding cake research usually comes last at your wedding to do list. Specifics, like who the wedding planner, florist, and photographer come first and of course details such as date, time, place and season. Of course all of the above will eventually enable you and your cake decorator not to only to choose a wedding cake that matches your wedding aesthetic, but also to fit the vision of your special wedding day in Greece.
Therefore, by now, you have already picked colors and you have a clear idea of your wedding design. You also went through millions of photos of wedding cake ideas on Pinterest to seek as an inspiration and so you are ready to brief your cake maker.
It is imperative, when you make the appointment not to forget to have all your “wedding tools” with you such as your wedding invitations suite and of course your wedding’s mood board. These are all wedding design tools to inspire your wedding cake maker and come up with the right design for you.
“Finally, don’t forget to bring up any additions to that traditional wedding treats. As we are able to create an assortment of party favors for your guests, that will surely satisfy a sweet tooth and of course large candy bars that will make your guests swoon over them from the moment they set foot on your wedding venue” says Elisabeth from The Cakers.
The following photos are to us a good example how you can keep the consistency and coherence on your wedding theme by following the invitation design, to the flowers, the flatware, stationary, food all the way to the wedding cake. A sight for sore eyes, don’t you agree?
Get the right answers for all the tricky questions
- When will the cake be made?
- Do you make deliveries?
- What’s the fee?
- When will it be delivered?
These are some of the most frequently asked questions, along with dietary restrictions or food allergies. Your wedding planner in Greece can of course handle all the technicalities but with respect to dietary restrictions, the couple should be very careful for hidden ingredients, such as almond extract, in frosting or sponge, so we would advise you to be clear about your needs, before, or even during, your wedding cake tasting.
Thankfully, you will not have to decide everything about your cake while you are in a sugar coma. Yet, the more you decide during your tasting, will keep you organized and help you by checking things off the list. Picking out flavors and outlining a design concept is a good place to start. You’ll also be deciding whether or not this is the cake decorator you want to hire, and if the answer is ‘yes’, make sure to secure them for your date.
