Let’s Talk Wedding Cakes

Pin, Pin, Pin! I like the shape of this cake, the color of that cake, and I wonder if they can make this yummy sounding flavor in gluten free! Now it’s time to talk to an expert about bringing those cake dreams (or Pins) to life.

You search through the mywedding.com rolodex looking at one cake designer after the next and you find a few you would like to meet.

Before you meet with each make sure you:

  • Collect swatches and pictures to bring in (bring in your Pinterest Wedding Board to show your ideas)
  • Understand their pricing and delivery fees
  • Make a list of favorite flavors and fillings (be prepared to pay for a tasting)
  • Read terms and conditions
  • Look over their website and through past work. If you like what you see then schedule a tasting

At your tasting, the cake designer will ask you to answer these questions:

  • When and where is your wedding?
  • What is your guest count?

*Note this – In the Portland area, a quality wedding cake cost starts at $4.50 a serving and can go up to as much as $12 a serving depending on design. This means that at minimum, a cake for a guest count of 100 is $450.
