So you’ve got the menu, guest list, and little details of your party all settled — right down to the perfectly curated playlist. But any kind of celebration is incomplete without a cake as a centrepiece! Cakes have a wonderful way of brightening the room, bringing your friends and family together in a shared experience, and simply sweetening the whole special occasion. Here are some tips to keep in mind when it comes to choosing the right cake!
How Many Guests Are There?
The ideal cake size depends on the number of guests you have. While you can get away with a cake that’s too big, the same cannot be said for the opposite. Choosing the perfectly sized cake will show that you have carefully considered your guests and their needs.
The general rule of thumb is that each slice of cake should be about an inch and a half wide. It’s also good to keep your guests’ personal preferences in mind! If your guest list is full of either sweet-lovers or otherwise, you can adjust your cake size accordingly — a 6-inch cake could serve 4 to 8 people, while an 8-inch cake can serve at least 10.
What Flavour Should You Choose?
There are many things to consider in buying a cake for a large group of people. It’s important to consider your guests’ dietary needs — is anyone allergic to nuts? Do you have any vegan guests who might prefer an eggless cake? Once these needs are settled, there are a hundred and one different types of cake you could get! Chocolate and vanilla are time-tested crowd-pleasers, but here at Whyzee Singapore, we also have some unique and flavourful combinations like our Mao Shan Wang Durian Cake or the delightfully light Lychee Rose Cake.
Another thing to consider would be who the occasion and cake are for — if you are celebrating either a birthday or an anniversary, you can safely prioritise the birthday person’s or the special couple’s tastes!
What’s Your Budget?
The part that no one really likes to talk about — budget. Having a set budget before going cake shopping will help you withstand the temptation of going all out. Knowing the size of your guest list as well as the general size of cake you’re going for will also help you in your search. Things like customisation and rush orders will also cost extra — so be mindful of these additional charges! You can also take note to inquire whether delivery charges are included in the price to ensure there are no surprises when you receive the invoice.
Does Your Party Have a Theme?
Apart from the occasion, you can also take into consideration the theme of the party! Consider the Bunny or Fox cake for an animal lover’s birthday or the Tiffany Blue Classic Vanilla Cake for a chic, classy bachelorette bash. Princess or fairy-themed parties will be elevated by the elegant and enchanting Unicorn cake or the Ombre Delight. Whatever the theme or occasion, Whyzee has a cake for you.
How Soon Do You Need It?
Ideally, you would want your cake to be ready and sitting in your fridge at least a half-hour before your guests arrive. Cakes take a while to bake and decorate, so keep this in mind when planning your time around the party. This is particularly important if you are hoping for a customised cake, so it’s best to place your cake order early and give the baker advance notice!
