Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Passion for Cakes offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

How far in advance before the big day do you order your cake?

If you know definitely know which cake supplier you wish to use then book them in straight away.

Otherwise it would be advisable to be booked in 4 months in advance.

what are wedding cake sizes?

What are the standard offerings?

Cakes come in all shapes and sizes.

Depending if your cake is for dessert/cocktail or token portions will determine the cake size you will require.

Your cake maker will recommend the right size for your requirements.

why are wedding cakes white?

Is there a traditional reason why wedding cakes are usually white?

Wedding cakes were traditionally white (purity) but any colour may be used, there are no restrictions re: colour or design.

Is it possible to have a cake, cookies and donuts or is that too OTT?

It's your wedding.... you may do whatever you like. Always nice to do something different :)

I didn't want a wedding cake, so I didn't get one. But now my sister wants to bake one.

Give me reasons to convince her that is so unnecessary and a bad idea? I'd prefer no cake than one a non-pro has made :/ I feel like I should just have a baker make one, even if I don't need it and tell her to back off, but she won't listen.

Mmm tough one !!

Possibly tell a little white lie and say that your reception venue will only accept cakes that have been supplied by a registered cake supplier ( in fear of food poisoning etc ?) 

All the best :)

are naked cakes cheaper than other wedding cakes?

Generally yes...but depends how you would like it decorated. If you have handmade sugar flowers/bride/groom etc it will start to bump the price up again.

To keep the price down organise fresh flowers from your florist.

if i have a small wedding cake, do i have to buy another bigger cake to cut up and give out?

It's your wedding you don't have to do anything !

What you have to ask yourself is "Would you like all your guest to have a piece of cake ?"

If yes then you will require a cake that will feed the number of people you have attanding.

If no then you may have any size cake you would like. 

Happy planning :)

do cake stands come with the wedding cake?

And cake topper? Or are those given back at the end?

Generally no they don't.

Naturally your cake comes on a cake board. Stands may be hired from your cake maker or your theming company will possible have one that will match your theme.

Cake toppers are either supplied by the bride/groom or your cake maker cake may order one in for you. They are for the bride/groom as a little keepsake.

Can I have a display cake made to cut, and then serve different cake?

Is this a common thing?

Not sure what you mean "display cake made to cut" . If it's made to cut then it's cake and not polystyrene.

Do you mean having a cake cut up already then decorated ?

If you mean a "dummy" cake on display it can still work out expensive even though it's fake because of all the work involved with the icing and the sugar decoration etc.

Kitchen cakes (not put on display) are reasonably common with larger weddings.

If we haven't answered your question please flick us an e-mail and we'll see if we can clarify the question.

What is the average cost of a cake tasting?

I'm Just wondering what a cake tasting should include if your vendor charges for the experience?

We don't charge and supply a sample pack of 6 different flavours.

What kind of cake suits a boho theme?

Boho cakes can be quite diverse from naked or semi naked cakes with beautiful fresh flowers to the more typical fondant iced cake with colourful/earthy aztec designs along feathers/dream catchers for decoration.
