Whether it's for a birthday, anniversary, or simply a date, a special cake is a must-have when celebrating any occasion. However, with so many varieties on offer, picking the perfect one can sometimes seem daunting. Should you get a fresh cream cake for the occasion, or a sugar free one? Zee & Elle are a leading artisan cake shop in Singapore, and to help you out, we’ve compiled a step-by-step guide to buying the perfect cake regardless of the event. Read on to learn more about the things you should take into consideration!
There is always a perfect cake for every occasion. For instance, if you are ordering a birthday cake online for your child, select from themes like Disney, Spiderman, Frozen or their favourite cartoon characters. Weddings on the other hand, are grand affairs and cakes, being the centrepieces, are usually magnificent in design. Multi-tiered cakes are generally ordered for weddings, and these are some of the most customised cakes usually adorned with elaborate fondant decorations.
There is a wide variety of cakes available online for every occasion. All that is needed is to browse through the catalogue of your selected cake shop, and choose the most appropriate cake based on the occasion.
Selecting a flavour is probably one of the most challenging parts of choosing the perfect cake, especially if it's for somebody else. If you have no clue where to start, we recommend beginning with the classic flavours such as vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry, then figuring out what combinations you want from there. This is because all of these flavours can be mixed and matched easily with each other and many other flavours. Consult with the creators of your cake as they will know best what flavours complement each other and could even have their own unique combinations that they work with.
If you or any of your guests are vegan or diabetic, you may need to look at ordering sugar-free or vegan cakes. Check in with the cake shop if such options are available. This can be a risky aspect, so be sure to keep this point at the top of mind when ordering your cakes.
Another thing to consider in choosing the perfect cake is the colour palette. The colour chosen should reflect the personality of who the cake is meant for, in addition to setting the tone for your party. For example, if you’re throwing a birthday party for a child, you may want to go for a brighter, more colourful cake. If you’re throwing a party for a woman in her 20s, you may want to consider more chic, pastel colour combinations. Deciding the colours of your cake can be a creative and fun process as the colour of the sponge, filling, frosting and decorations all work together to create the perfect cake for the occasion.
The process of buying a cake for your loved one should be an enjoyable experience of expressing the love you have for them. With these tips, we hope you’ll find yourself having fun creating a special and unique cake that the person you are celebrating will adore!
