Sally Yarnold from Don't Go Baking My Heart Cakes gives her top tips for choosing a small but beautiful cake Local cake maker, Sally Yarnold from Don't Go Baking My Heart Cakes reveals her top tips for choosing a small but beautiful cake.

"Having a small wedding cake can still have as much of an impact as a large, tiered design. Small creations don’t have to be understated unless that’s the style you want and they should taste just as amazing. You still have lots of options and if you’re worried about friends and family missing out, ask your supplier to supply pre-boxed slices as a gesture to let them know you were thinking about them on your special day.

"When choosing your cake maker, request a consultation and tasting. At the moment many suppliers have adapted their services and are offering consultations via video call and are creating taster boxes to be posted to you. Some couples are finding that being able to plan from the comfort of their own home is a more enjoyable and relaxing experience. This also means you don’t have any pressure when making decisions about your favourite flavours, as you aren’t sitting in front of your supplier.

"Once you decide on your date and confirm your venue, book your supplier. With all of the 2020 postponements, 2021 and 2022 are being booked quickly. If you find your dream supplier, don’t hesitate to contact them to avoid disappointment.

"Keep lines of communication open. It’s understandable to be apprehensive but share your concerns with your supplier. If there are changes required with your date or guest numbers, try to let your supplier know as soon as possible to give them the best chance to accommodate these. Make sure you fully understand the terms and conditions regarding cancellation policies, booking fees, payments and rescheduling.

"Above anything else, enjoy the process! You should be given the same service you would expect to receive if you were booking a large wedding."
