It never fails. Whenever America’s Funniest Home Videos runs a sequence of wedding clips, a wedding cake somehow topples over. The studio audience cracks up laughing as the poor bride and groom stare open-mouthed, first at each other, then at the demolished layers of their beautiful-until-seconds-ago three-tier buttercream wedding cake. Sure, it might seem hilarious to someone who’s watching the incident after the fact, but in reality that was someone’s wedding day!
Most couples would be absolutely horrified if their wedding cake was destroyed, but it happens all too often in more ways than one. Ordering your wedding cake from the supermarket or taking a friend up on her offer of a homemade cake as a wedding gift might seem tempting, but think about it for a minute – would you want your wedding cake to turn into a total wedding disaster worthy of a prime-time TV show?
No, you wouldn’t.
Choose a Professional Bakery for Your Wedding Reception
You deserve a professional wedding cake made by a professional bakery. Here’s why.
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. You can buy a ¼ sheet cake from the bakery department of your favorite grocery store for every birthday and special occasion from here on out, but when it comes to your wedding, you deserve a professional wedding cake made by a professional bakery. Don’t settle for less than you deserve on one of the biggest days of your life!
You should be allowed to think outside the box. Wedding cakes have come a long way in the past few decades, but most supermarkets will hand you a slim catalog and ask which cake you’d like to order. When it comes to your wedding, you should be allowed to think outside the box—or outside the catalog. Working with a professional bakery to choose your own style, design and flavor is the best way to ensure that your wedding cake is just as perfect as you want it to be.
Not only is your cake a dessert, it’s going to be a lifelong memory. Day-old yellow cake might be adequate for a co-worker’s birthday party in the office break room, but it’s not acceptable at your wedding reception. Not only is your wedding cake a dessert, it’s going to become a lifelong memory. Make it a good one by hiring a professional baker.
You shouldn’t do business with friends or family. Everyone always says you shouldn’t do business with friends or family, and you shouldn’t accept favors from friends or family when it comes to your wedding. It’s okay to realize that someone means well when they offer to bake your wedding cake, but realize that it’s also okay to decline their offer politely.
