Choosing your cakes and dessert is the fun part of wedding planning. Typically, you go for a cake tasting or you can purchase a set of tester cupcakes to get a sample of what the baker offers. There are lots of different options as far as flavor, frostings, designs and fillings. Your baker may also offer flowers, cake toppers or cake stands. You should visit your baker as soon as you have your date, venue and a good idea on guest count or at the very least 4 months before the wedding.
