Frequently Asked Questions

How does someone become a wedding cake baker?

Some people are natural bakers who require little to no training to become wedding cake bakers. For those who wish to open professional cake businesses, it's a good idea to obtain baker and cake decorator certifications. These certifications can be earned by taking courses through associations, such as the Retail Bakers Association and AIB International.

How do you freeze wedding cake?

If possible, the wedding cake should be prefrozen without wrapping to allow the icing to harden. Wrap the cake or cake slices loosely in about three layers of plastic wrap, then place the cake in a box. Once the cake is boxed, wrap the box tightly in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer.

Why do you save the top tier of wedding cake?

It's a well-known tradition for couples to save the top tiers of wedding cakes as a symbol of prosperity and good luck throughout their marriages. The top tier of a wedding cake is generally placed in the freezer for one year, then enjoyed on the couple's wedding anniversary.
