Local bakery known for custom wedding cakes, holiday treats and specialty cake art
HI Now is celebrating Wedding Week, and when it comes to the big day, the cake is often the centerpiece of any wedding reception. HI Now host Jobeth Devera is at Cake Works, a local bakery where you can work with an experienced team to bring your dream cake to life!
Cake Works is a full-scale bakery, producing an array of French macarons, gourmet eclairs, scones, decorated cookies, marshmallows, cupcakes and other treats. When it comes to the bakery’s gourmet cakes, you can choose your style, flavor, and frosting.
Here are some things to consider ahead of a cake consultation:
1) What are your colors?
Bring swatches or a sample of your wedding colors! Paint chips are a great source for this.
2) Flower or not to flower?
If you want florals for your cake, create a game plan before coming in. Cake Works can provide flowers, but a florist can also provide flowers for the bakery to place.
3) Invites, dresses and flowers — oh my!
Inspiration for wedding cakes can come from anywhere, including the wedding dress, the invitation or shades of linens! Factor them all in.
4) Style is everything.
There are a lot of gorgeous cake designs to choose from. To avoid the love-them-all blues, keep the style of your event at the front of your mind to find the best fit.
5) Let’s talk dollars and sense.
Have a basic budget and an idea of how many guests you want to feed. Cakes range between $4 – $10 per serving, and that can add up fast! A cake design consultant at Cake Works can help find a lovable alternative in your budget.
