Here are a few primo tips:
We highly recommend renting a pedestal for your tiered cake. They come in gold or silver and only in 2 sizes; 3 tier (18”) or 4 tier(22”). You can rent them from any party rental company. Speak with your venue first as they may rent them out as well. If your cake is larger than the sizes specified above, you may have to get a custom stand. This is not an “upsell” as we do not rent them. It is the BEST way to make your cake pop.
Corina rents a cupcake stand that can accommodate a 6 inch cake for the top and can adjust to up to 8 tiers. Call for availability, refundable deposit required.
Take a picture of where your cake will be set up at the venue. Think of what is behind it. Sometimes incorporating room elements can help your cake stand out.
Smaller, round tables are better at spotlighting the cake and making it appear bigger. Avoid long rectangular tables unless you can fill it with flowers, plates, candles. Think of the finished concept before the consultation and you’ll get a more polished final design.
The most elegant tables have some flash of color on them. You can cheaply make a large runner for your table, or simple buy a piece of beautiful fabric and pool it under the rented pedestal. Have your table stand out from the other tables at the event. If the guest tables have white linens, use your other color as the linen for the cake table.
For a fun and vintage wedding, make your own cake pedestals! Here’s the link to the instructions.
Save loads of money and opt for fresh flowers on your cake instead of gumpaste/fondant. Not only is fondant expensive but you can never get the same colors or textures as you can real flowers. Depending on your design, we’ll let you know the amount you will need to complete the look. We do charge a set-up fee, but the cost varies depending on the amount of additional time it will take us to assemble on site and can sometimes be cheaper than a florist.
