Everyone deserves to enjoy a slice of cake whether it’s an ordinary day or a special occasion, whether it’s eaten with a company or divulged alone. If you have the gift of magic hands, you can bake one. If you’re best left outside the kitchen, you can always buy. But with so many cake shops popping here and there, the decision process can be a bit overwhelming. Worry not, you can take it step-by-step as you go through the following things.
Red velvet or blueberry cheesecake? A simple cake or a three-tiered wedding cake? You should first check out the shop’s menu to see the available flavors and decorating options. If you can’t see the one you’re looking for, you could ask them if they could make the desired flavor or design just for you. The same thing goes for occasional cakes too. For example, if you want to celebrate Mother’s Day 2022 with Emicakes, you can ask them to include a ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ greeting on the cake. Do take note though that customized orders, depending on their complexity, can cost you more. Talk to the shop and ask for a quotation before committing.
Humans are visual beings. When we see something good, we automatically think it’s also of good quality. But as they say, looks can be deceiving. Of course, you want both the decoration to look good and the inside of the cake to taste good so be sure to check out for reviews. Begin by asking your friends and the people around you. If you’re looking for reviews online, try checking the shop’s tagged photos or posts on social media. Also, don’t be fooled by the number of followers or likes a shop has. Sometimes a smaller shop can be on par or it can even taste greater than the bigger ones.
Now you know the reviews but is it worth the price? This is something you have to decide on your own especially if you’re sticking to a budget. You might wonder why a cake of the same flavor and the same size has different prices. It’s because of various factors such as the ingredients used, labor, and other overhead costs.
Also, prices are mostly to increase during peak seasons like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Shops might also require customers to make a down-payment to avoid the chances of cancellation.
The more options a shop has, the better! After all, businesses would not want to lose profit. Look for shops that have cash on delivery, bank transfer, credit card, and other online payment options.
Online Cake Delivery
Online cake delivery is a must-have option for every cake shop. With just a few clicks, you can send a cake to your loved one’s doorstep even if you’re far away from them. This is the convenience that ordering online has become. Look out for the types of delivery options a shop offers. Most of the common ones are same-day delivery, express delivery, and standard delivery. If they have physical stores, most probably they also offer in-store pick-up.
Now that you’re through with this guide, it’s time to get a bite of that luscious cake!
