The Royal Wedding may be over for between Prince William and Kate Middleton, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t create your own royal wedding, starting with with a few tips on selecting the perfect cake set.
If you are planning to give a cake set as a gift for a couple on their wedding day, or looking for a cake set for your own wedding, the process of searching for the right set can be time consuming and difficult without some help along the way.
Below are a few steps to take when searching for the right cake set:
Step one – Choose your Style
When choosing the correct style of cake set for your wedding, whether it is sterling silver, silver plated, or a durable stainless steel, the goal to remember these items will last longer than the cake in preserving the memory of the wedding. Therefore, it is great to match the cake set to style of the wedding and the cake itself.
Step two – Decide on the Design
There are a variety of different shapes, weights, sizes, and patterns you can choose from for your cake set. Also, as a rule of thumb is if the wedding is featuring a round cake, using a triangle server works best. A square cake however, requires a square cake server. Take in consideration the main theme of the wedding: the colors, floral arrangements, and anything else that will stand out in helping you pick the perfect cake set.
Step three – Narrow down your Search
Now you have a few favorite cake sets and you have the challenging task of deciding on the right one. Here are a few categories you may want to consider to make the choice a bit easier:
Price – How much you are willing to spend? The range of cake sets can go from $20 to hundreds of dollars. Determine your budget, and then find the highest quality and best looking sets within your price range.
Quality – From stainless steel to sterling silver, wedding knives and cake serving sets are available in many different materials. Some even have plastic or wooden handles. Certain sets are higher quality than others and will last much longer. Determine what you like and what you can afford.
Longevity – Is the set timeless enough that you could use it again (say, for a special anniversary)?
Step four- Get it Engraved!
Many couples opt to have their wedding knife and cake server set engraved, often with their names, initials, or wedding date. If you have your heart set on engraving, make sure you find out if the retailer you plan to purchase the set from offers engraving services. This will avoid the additional step of engraving your cake set later.
