Are you in search of an Ottawa wedding cake for your special day or a birthday cake for your child’s special day or even a batch of scrumptious cupcakes?
If you are looking for a special cake (or cupcakes) then one of the many items on your to do list will probably be to find a baker or bakery in Ottawa to create a cake for your special day.
There are a lot of locations for Ottawa Wedding cakes, where you can buy your cakes and cupcakes. The styles, prices and service can vary drastically. You definitely want to shop around and ask family and friends for their recommendations.
Here are a few things to keep in mind or questions to ask when cake shopping. These may apply to just weddings and/or just birthdays:
- try to have a rough idea of how many guests you will want to feed
- try to have a general idea of what style or theme of cake you want to order. You can cut pictures out of magazines or print pictures off of the internet. You may even want cupcakes instead!
- is the cake going to be used as the dessert or are you going to cut your cake later in the evening (this will affect how many pieces you need)?
- do any of your guests have any allergies (i.e. nut allergies)?
- is there a cake cutting service and/or fee at your reception location?
- does your baker deliver? Is there an extra charge for them to deliver and set up your cake?
- does your baker have cake toppers, tiers, cake cutters etc?
- can your baker supply references?
- how far in advance is your cake made?
- can you have a taste test (mmm…yummy)?
- does your baker supply flowers for the cake or cake table? If not, then you will want to ask your florist.
