Tips to Order the Perfect Birthday Cake

Tips to Order the Perfect Birthday Cake

The following tips will help you order the perfect cake from Dreamy Cakes with ease! If you have a kid’s birthday coming up and you would like to order the perfect birthday cake here is a couple of tips that will help you order the perfect cake for the birthday girl or boy! 1. Select the date you need the cake for.  This sounds kind of obvious but the date you need to pick up the cake might not be the date of the actual party.  For example, if you are planning an early morning party at the park and need to get there at the ‘crack of dawn’ to grab the best table and set up the balloons and streamers, you’ll need to collect your cake the day before the party.  Consider also if you have to travel to a certain location for the party (maybe the beach, or an indoor play centre), or maybe you don’t have a lot of party ‘helpers’, make it easier on yourself and order the cake for pickup the day before. The cake order date is also important because certain times of the year are more popular than others and therefore book out more quickly.  Once you have picked the party date make sure you call as early as possible to get your order in so you don’t miss out! 2.  Decide on the amount of servings you will need.  At most birthday parties the cake is the centerpiece of the party and definitely not the only food on offer so there is no need to over-cater in size for the cake.  Factor in...
