Top Tips For Ordering a Custom Cake

Are you excited about the cakes you see on Instagram? Often times, we have several ideas in mind and think it would be great to see them as cakes. Creating a custom cake with a bakery is simple if you follow a few key rules.

Here’s our TOP 5 Tips for Ordering A Custom Cake:

TIP 1: Give your bakery enough time to let your vision come to life – calling the day before your husband’s 50th birthday and wanting a cake for 100 guests is not the best! We recommend placing the order at least two weeks in advance.

TIP 2: Send images or links of your ideas and include as much detail as possible. The more information you provide, the better the cake will turn out. Date, size of cake, type of cake -fondant or buttercream and anything else that would help in making your idea come to life via cake.

TIP 3: Always include the number of guests the cake needs to serve. Saying you need a cake doesn’t help a bakery quote you if they don’t know the size.

TIP 4: If you’re having a cake delivered make sure someone is home, ask a neighbour to collect for you, or inform your concierge. Many times cakes circle the city unnecessarily so if you know you’re hard to catch at home, pick up the cake yourself.

TIP 5: Specify any food allergies up front. Some places don’t cater to vegan, gluten free or other so ask first. Le Dolci caters to these specific needs with delicious recipes so we can help you!
