The Nashville area has so many great wedding vendors that will provide you with top notch service. We want to talk about one of the most iconic wedding items: your cake.

They say that timing is everything. You should start looking for a cake maker as early as 12 months before your wedding date. The really good ones have their schedule fill up quickly. So, for any baker that you are considering, you will want to call them and ask if your wedding date is open on their calendar. If it is, ask them if you can meet them in person for an on-site interview.
When you sit down with any potential cake maker, talk about your vision. What is your dream for the overall wedding design and for the cake specifically. Share with them your wedding theme. Talk about various designs, shapes, colors, sizes. Have them show you previous cakes they have designed for weddings. Also, what are ways that you can save money so that you don't have to break the bank. Discuss flavors, its not just a world of vanilla and chocolate anymore. A good cake maker should have various flavors for you to sample.
Have a long talk about their experience. What made them get into the cake business in the first place? How many weddings have they provided cakes for? Take a look at portfolios of the wedding cakes they have designed. As you listen to the answers they give you, ask yourself if they seem to have a passion for helping people with their wedding needs. If they don't have a sincere desire to help people, we suggest you move on to another candidate. Make sure the bakery is licensed, you don't want to take a chance with anyone that is not, its just not worth the risk.
Consider different kinds of icing. Some people like buttercream, others like fondant. Ask about the pros and cons of each including cost. In terms of costs, ask them if you can pick and choose what you order from them. For instance, you might be considering getting a small decorative cake from your cake maker and then going and ordering sheet cakes from a store. Ask them if this is alright. Some bakeries won't allow this practice, they will tell you its all or nothing.
What do you have to do to reserve them as your baker? Most cake makers will ask for a deposit to hold your date on their calendar. When do you have to pay the balance by? Get all of the details in writing and then book your favorite among the candidates you interviewed.
