Undoubtedly, sorting through custom wedding cakes can be thrilling but also daunting.
Fortunately, our award-winning owner and pastry chef, Michelle Spell, recognizes all the emotions that come into play. An expert at cake design, she is also skilled at understanding people. After all, you are unique. Your relationship is extraordinary. Therefore, the custom design of your cake should be nothing less.
Custom Wedding Cakes 101
Before we delve into Michelle’s outstanding accolades and process of designing a beautiful custom cake for you, let’s tackle questions. Often, our customers wonder: How do I determine the size of my wedding cake based on the number of people?
While this seems like a simple, straightforward query, multiple factors come into play. For instance, will you be offering your guests seconds? Moreover, do you wish to save and freeze a tier of the cake for an anniversary celebration? Instead of focusing exclusively on size and the amount of people attending, consider the design of your cake first. Essentially, a professional baker can determine the width, height, and amounts of tiers necessary.
Ultimately, at Ava’s Cupcakes, we like to get to know you and your needs first. Consequently, we can determine a design that fits you best. Then, we will decide on how many tiers you require and how large they must be.
Plus, we get to another supremely fun part, cake flavors inside and out! Whether you prefer vanilla, red velvet or a more exotic taste, Michelle excitedly explores them all with you. Next, we have fun with choosing the covering on your masterpiece. Literally, the icing on the cake!
Our Cake Design Details
Another query our customers wonder about custom wedding cakes and design: How far in advance should I order my cake? Generally, this depends on the time of year and the scope of your desires. In the end, the more time that we have to plan, the better. However, we work diligently to help you meet your goals in all cases. Sometimes, you simply don’t have the luxury of months of planning. With our years of experience and expertise, we can expedite the process as much as possible, when necessary.
Likewise, the best way to begin…is to begin! Leave your contact information on the form at the bottom of our custom wedding cake designs page. Within 8 hours, we will get back to you. Then, we can determine what works best. Distinctively, as every masterpiece is unique, so are their timelines!
Correspondingly, Michelle would like to meet as soon as possible. During this time, she will guide you towards your perfect day. Artistically, she strives to combine the personalities of your union and reflect that in your beautiful cake. Notably, she doesn’t simply create spectacular cakes. As the winner of season 4 “Food Network Cupcake Wars: I Love Lucy 60th Anniversary,” she is a talented pastry chef. At Ava’s Cupcakes, we have a reputation for offering exotic flavors and designs.
