Ordering a wedding cake may seem that it should be one of the last checks on your list. There are certainly more important checks to make such as venue, photographer, band/dj and florist as these are some of the vendors who book up quickly.
Ordering a wedding cake, however, should not be put off too long.
A safe time range is 4-6 months out. Limited availability for most bakers comes 3-4 months in advance.
It is difficult to predict when certain dates may book solid. It is safe to begin to contact your cake designer as soon as possible to inquire as to their particular method for ordering.
They may tell you it is safest to secure your cake order now, and others may tell you to contact them a little closer to the 4-6 month mark.
6-10 months out is the ideal time frame for ordering your cake from Sheri's Edible Designs.
Some dates are more popular than others. If you happen to be in need of a cake and your wedding is a couple months away, it never hurts to call and ask. If I am available, I will gladly create the cake of your dreams!
