Brides these days find it easier to order a fake wedding cake and not go through all the hassle of ordering a real wedding cake. But many brides love the idea of having a real wedding cake at their wedding.
When it comes to choosing their wedding cake design, some brides have unusual or confusing questions.
Every bride needs to take certain points into consideration when choosing her wedding cake, such as the size of the cake, the flavor, and, of course, the cost.

The Baker's Experience

Ask about the price, payment terms and delivery. If you have set a specific budget for the cake, ask if they could work within it. Make sure that the price includes delivery to the wedding reception site.
Your Wedding Cake Topper
Ask what cake topper ideas the baker has and if the price quoted includes that. Sometimes, cake toppers are extra. Be creative with your cake topper.
Fake Wedding Cake
Ask if you could mix real cake tiers and fake ones if you are having a big cake. Make sure the top tier is a real cake in order to take it away with you and enjoy it on your first anniversary.
If you are designing the cake with fresh flowers ask if the baker will provide the flowers or whether you need to coordinate that with your florist.
Ask About Policies
Ask about their policy regarding refunds and cancellations, just in case you change your mind.
