Customizing a cake is one of Zee & Elle’s most valued specialties. We expertise in creating a cake unique for you based upon your interests and theme of the event. In this blogpost, we are going to show how a cake is generally customized and go through the process with you. These are the steps on how a cake is customized.
Understanding The Theme
The cake must represent the theme of the event and we value that. So, before we start, we love knowing the theme of the event so that our bakers can keep that in mind while preparing the cake and integrate the theme of the event in the creation process wherever it is possible.
After understanding the theme, the next step is to know the number of guests for the event. If you are expecting more people, opt for a larger sized cake and if you are expecting less people, opt for a smaller sized cake.
Here at Zee & Elle, we take great pride in customizing a cake to suit your event from the very beginning, right from the moment we receive your order online or through a call. Here, you can let us know the type and flavor of the cake you desire. When you first approach us, we go down to the details to bake the perfect cake for you.
Baking The Cake
After receiving all the information needed to make the perfect cake that will stand out in the event, we start baking the cake. Our bakers prepare the best possible cake based upon your request. Additionally, you can also specify the flavour of the cake you desire (eg: Double Chocolate Crunch Cake) and customize it.
Selecting The Frosting
No cake is perfect without frosting. When you opt for a customized cake, you get to choose the frosting you desire or go with the baker’s recommendation. The two most common types of frosting would be Fresh Cream or Swiss Meringue Buttercream. For a cake to be displayed for longer hours, we would recommend going for Swiss Meringue Buttercream. If you would like to learn about the difference between Fresh Cream and Swiss Meringue Buttercream, head over to our blog ‘Tips: Keeping Fresh Cream Frosting Stable’ & ‘Discover: How To Make Perfect Swiss Meringue Buttercream’ to find out more!
Putting Additional Decorations
Your customized cake is not yet complete after baking and frosting. When you choose customized cakes from us, you get to choose different decorations, from candles and cake toppers, name and number personalisation to figurines. You are sure to find something that would be suited for your special occasion - birthday, anniversary or wedding.
Adding A Personalized Message For A Better Touch
After completing the preparation of the cake, it is time for the best part- adding a personalised message. As it is a customized cake, we give you ample variety in the method of adding personalised messages. You can choose the color, size, shape and font to make the cake look a lot better.
Delivering The Customized Cake
The final step after the preparation of the cake is payment and cake delivery. Generally, for customized cakes the price would vary depending on the type of cake and the addons for the cake.
All in all, if you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind cake of your dreams, customising your cake would be a better choice compared to pre-baked cakes.
