Your wedding is a special and precious moment in your life, and you deserve the perfect cake to celebrate it. Finding the right cake for your reception can be a daunting task, but with the right research and planning, you can find the perfect cake for your special day. The best thing to start with is to ask your baker to see a portfolio of some of the other pastries they've made before. This will give you a good chance to get an idea of what your own cake could look like.
Many bakers charge a fee for tasting pastries, but will then apply that amount to the final cost of the cake if you sign a contract. Some bakers will make a consultation that includes a tasting of several flavors and a discussion about the design of the cake, while others will simply provide you with the flavors for you to try on your own and then talk about the design once you've signed the contract. Based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Rosa's Jar is a bakery and coffee shop that makes wedding cakes and candies. The Flour Child begins with a free consultation where they will discuss the design of your wedding cake.
All wedding cakes have a delicious buttercream base with the option of adding decorative fondant decorations. To make the service even more convenient, their experienced staff will handle the delivery and installation, and can provide a cake stand. We recommend placing the cake on a table large enough to display and leaving room for floral details, greenery and a special cake knife. A couple of days before celebrating your first wedding anniversary, take the cake out of the box and place it in the fridge to thaw (about 48 hours).
Bakers often end this so that you and your spouse remember how much fun you had the year before.
