Don’t forget – some tips from us! 

  •   Be upfront with your time frame

Making a custom cake takes a lot of time so consider ordering your cake a few weeks ahead of time to make sure you will have a party with the exact cake you wanted. Understand that you are not the only one ordering a cake and if you plan on ordering a custom cake around a holiday, be sure to allow for extra time. Also ask and check if they offer Birthday Cake delivery.

  •   Give as much information as possible

It is essential to tell the baker what you are looking for and what exactly you want. You can provide with your theme, the flavor or flavors, and colors. (Please keep in mind about the biggest issue of cake copyright; just make sure you have written permission to use the copyrighted design to ensures you and your baker or cake decorator are free of liabilities).

For every birthday celebration, providing the total guests expected is an excellent information for your baker to ensure everyone gets a piece of cake. And, there is no better way to have a successful partnership but to communicate. You should be able to trust the baker you have chosen, but don’t hesitate to send feedback and any other specific details you want them to know.

  •   Budget it Right

Regardless if you get your custom cake from a specialty bakery or grocery store, it is important to have the right budget. Obviously, a bakery who specializes in custom cakes can be more expensive compared to the grocer, but they can do magic and create precisely what’s in your mind. And, if you are working with a specific budget then let your baker know, and most of them can reasonably cooperate with you to make your beautiful cake without breaking the bank.

  •   Plan how to transport your cake

Moving a custom cake, especially one that is tall and elaborate needs special care and it can take time in carrying it to your venue. Those cute decorations are made with creamed butter; it made it so delicate. Most cakes need to stay below 70 degrees to avoid melting. Be sure to plan ahead.

  •   Read reviews or get recommendations

Your options for a cake baker can seem endless, yes… there are a lot out there. Start with by reading reviews and ask your friends, families and online groups for recommendations.
