Commercial bakeries are the most commonly used source for wedding cakes, and there are many that specialize in this kind of cakes. These bakeries produce a large quantity of cakes, and generally have a variety of styles and designs to choose from. One disadvantage with this type of bakery is that they may not be able to deviate from their set designs, in the event that you want something unique. In many cases, the caterer or reception location will provide the wedding cake. Since wedding cakes may not be their expertise, ask to see pictures and to taste a sample before agreeing to their cake. When you have your caterer or reception location provide the cake, the fee for cutting the cake is often included in the price. To find the right baker for you, get recommendations from friends whose wedding cakes you've enjoyed, or from your reception site coordinator, florist, or photographer. Remember if you liked the cake you tasted at the last wedding you attended and ask who that person used. Bridal magazines and bridal shows or fairs may also be good sources. For additional information, please consult a bakery or bridal consultant.
