1. Book a tasting with your cake maker so you know what you are serving to your guests. Choose at least one fun or unexpected flavor for your guests to try!
2 Stylize your cake or cupcake table to make it a stunning, decorative addition to your wedding theme. You can add flowers, candles, risers, crates, different cake plates and server ware to make a cool eclectic display.
3 Make sure your cake maker is licensed and insured, especially if you are having your wedding at a venue that provides catering. It is important for maintaining proper food safety standards so you can be sure to serve your guests goods that have been baked in a clean, commercial kitchen and that they have been stored at proper temperatures throughout the process.
