Cake Info

These sections address many of the "Frequently Asked Questions" and also provide a myriad of helpful advice about things you may have not thought of!

  • Helpful Hints

    Floral: When it comes to Wedding Cakes and flowers - some just work better than others! "Good" Cake Flowers: Orchids and Roses. "Bad" Cake Flowers: Stargazers (too big) and Calla Lilies (bad shape/sappy stem)

    Please let us know who your florist is or if you need a recommendation for one, will be happy to assist you.

    Tints & Colors: Do you know the reason most Wedding Cakes are white? Dark or bright colors often stain nice clothes and make for colored teeth and lips that look weird in photos..... "Bad Idea"!

    Blues/Greens/Purples: Since we use "real" butter from happy cows, the icing has an ever-so-slight yellow tint. It looks PURE white until you add food coloring... Then it bonds to the "yellow" in the butter and makes whatever colors it feels like!

    Cupcake & Tart Display Stands: I have several Display Stands that belong to Bob's Bunz. Some pictured are the property of the Bride & Groom or their Caterer or Wedding Coordinator. When using a Display Stand that requires a "set up" that task falls to The Caterer or The Wedding coordinator. We will deliver all that is needed to make the requested display but set up generally happens long after our delivery. Just be sure to Ask whom ever is going to do it about any additional fees.

    Guests: Estimate the numbers of guests you'll have at your reception. Just a round figure that can be adjusted once we have an better idea of what you want. Example: 50 to 75, 100 to 125, We can do small adjustments once you receive all the RSVP's.

    Flavors: Decide on the flavor. And don't be shy. Pick your favorite (it's your wedding, after all). We will guide you in your selection so that your cake is every bit as tasty as beautiful.

    Multiple flavors are best achieved but doing a 1/2 & 1/2 cake. This makes each serving the same for all of the guests but gives them a variety of flavors.

    Reception: Note WHERE you'll be having your reception. Sunset on the bay can make for a beautiful ceremony but the weather presents special challenges to icings and fillings. Certain types of decoration look great in a Ball Room of the hotel but a strong wind out side just don't work. Just let us know what you plan so Chef Robert can make sure your cake is "Florida-friendly".

    Wedding Cake: Decide whether you'd like your cake to be stacked, tiered or arranged on a cake stand. Look at the examples on our website instead of in The Bride Magazine. Each cake is CUSTOM made just for the individual Bride so it's best to START with something we already know works for our area.

    Think about the "look" of your cake. Look at our samples to get some ideas. Do you like round or square? Don't forget the "Cake Table".... Welcome Bags, Favors or Pastries for a morning after treat.

    Have Fun: Enjoy! Keep it FUN, Keep it SIMPLE, Let someone else that has years of experience do all the worrying, you just sit back and smile pretty for the camera! We want to enjoy the process just as much as you do!!

    Cakes from other Sources: It is always a preference to use our own designs. However, we will occasionally consider using a design from another source if it is appropriate. In our world of litigation, there are copyright issues related to photos of cakes. Yes, as ridiculous as this may seem, it can happen. We require that any photo sent for consideration include the Original Source.
