Questions for the Wedding Cake Baker

In this blog post we’re going to talk about the wedding cake and the questions you should be asking the baker before making your purchase. Over the years we have seen a huge change in wedding cake trends, from traditional 3 or 4 tier cakes painstakingly iced with lace detail to cupcakes, chocolate cakes and even cakes made solely of wheels of cheese! The questions we ask below, should allow you to make an informed decision on the type of cake you want and ensure that you know what you’re getting well in advance of the big day.

Can the baker give you samples to try?
You don’t buy a car without test-driving it and you certainly don’t spend hundreds (sometimes thousands) of Euros on a cake if you haven’t tasted the merchandise first! Ask the baker if they can give you some sample cakes to take away and taste at home with your loved one before you make that all important decision.

Can you do this?
You may have seen a cake elsewhere that really caught your eye, whether at a friends wedding or on social media. If you really have your heart set on a certain type of cake, we would advise you to provide as many images to your baker as possible. They should be able to tell you immediately whether they can accommodate your request.

When is the cake baked?
This is one of the most important questions you need to ask your baker. You will want to ensure your cake is as fresh as possible when you and your guests tuck in! In most cases, the cake will be baked approx. a week before the wedding, if it’s baked any earlier it can be ‘too’ fresh and difficult to ice. However, making the baker aware that you want your cake to be as fresh as possible is always a good idea.

What kind of delivery service do you offer?
Let’s assume your wedding is on a weekend and the reception is taking place more than 20km from the baker’s premises. Can they deliver directly to the venue for you on the morning of the wedding or the night before? If not, can they provide you with a delivery option? What is the cost of delivery? Make sure you ask these questions well in advance to avoid any last minute panic!

Is the price negotiable?
If you don’t ask, you don’t get, right? Never be afraid to ask the baker if this is their best price, even a small discount can make a difference to your wedding budget!

Other helpful information:

• Does the baker have a portfolio they can show you?
• Are references or testimonials available on their website?
• Check out the baker’s social media page to see what previous customers have to say.
• Maybe you want more than one type of cake? Ask your baker about different flavours for different tiers of your cake.
• If you opt for cupcakes, make sure order more than needed to ensure everyone enjoying your celebrations gets a full cupcake.
• Agree on a final price including delivery with your baker. Make sure to ask if there are any extra charges so you can budget for these in advance.

The team at Drangan Video offer a number of different styles to suit your dream wedding video.

Question 2: Does the Videographer have experience?

Having confidence in your wedding videographer is really the most important part of making your choice.

Wedding In Limerick’s Golden Vale District of Bruree Rockhill

Here is a lovely highlights  video clip from one of my recent weddings in Limerick. Sarah & Declan were married in St. Munchins Church Rockhill, Bruree,  the area  is locally known as the Golden Vale Area of Limerick.

Wedding Location:                                                                                                          Rockhill is on the N20 Limerick to Cork road it was less than a two hour drive through the  very appealing lush green farming pastures of Tipperary & Limerick.  I was delighted to be back again in this area of Limerick its a lovely countryside.

Bruree is just a short distance from Rockhill  as they are part of the same parish.  Many of Ireland’s famious ancient and moderen leaders are associated with the village of Bruree which sits on the banks of the Maigue River.  Bruree was one of the most inportant historical sites in ancient Ireland as it was the home to the King of Munster.

Sarah & Declans Wedding Story:                                                                                  I began recording at the church as requested by the couple it was a pleasant day with just an occasional shower which blew off quickly giving way to warm spring sunshine.  St. Munchin’s Church stand on a steep hill allowing some interesting vantage points for interesting camera angles. Sarah and Declan were a relaxed couple they really enjoyed their wedding ceremony which was celebrated by Fr. Liam Enright  he is a really sound Limerick Priest.

Dominican Priory  For wedding Photos :                                                         We stopped off in Kilmallock for a visit to the old stone walled Priory, it was the ideal location for gathering   nice video footage. The Priory is situated across the river in the towm of Kilmallock, the old priory  is  often frequented by Wedding Videographers in Limerick.

Ideal Choice Of Wedding Venue:                                                                                Springfort Hall Hotel is very popular wedding venue for weddings in Limerick and Cork ,   it was a pleasure to be back there once again for  Sarah and Declan’s wedding reception. The dedicated team at Springfort Hall are always on hand to answer questions and help in every way in ” Making Your Wedding Memories Magical”.

Congratulations to Sarah and Declan on what was a Magical Wedding , they really enjoyed their wedding day and for me it was a pleasure to have been their wedding videographer, they have passed my details on to many of their friend who are getting married  during 2015/2016 .

Thanks for reading this blog post:

Charlene and Jason Tie The knot In Pallaskenry Limerick

It was a pleasure to have been the videographer for the wedding of Charlene and Jason who were married in St. Mary’s Church Pallaskenry, Limerick in July 2014, it was a typical

Wedding Bunratty Folk Park Limerick
Wedding Bunratty Folk Park Limerick

limerick wedding great fun and all guests very friendly and up for a good time. Charlene and Jason were a smashing couple to work with, as far as filming was concerned I just did my own thing with absolutely  no direction from this very laid back limerick Bride and Groom.

The wedding film kicks off at the Radisson Blu Limerick on the Ennis Road, I arrived at the hotel two hours before the wedding ceremony in plenty of time to grab all the excitement of the girls getting on with the bridal preparations.  I have recorded a few weddings in the Radisson Blu and I always  enjoy my visits, the staff are so helpful and accommodating towards videographer and photographer which is a big plus,  there is always a decent lunch menu option available in the bar which is also a treat when the hunger pangs set in.

Pallaskenry is situated about 24km west of limerick City close to the river Shannon Estuary its a lovely tidy  village, St. Mary’s Church is a great setting for a wedding ceremony a well maintained church with plenty of space and lots of natural sunlight.  After the ceremony the happy bride and groom released a pair of white doves into a clear blue sky and a big cheer from their guests, a nice video shot.

One of the highlights of the day as the wedding videographer was stopping off at Bunratty Castle & Folk Park for a video shoot with the bridal party, the highlights clip features shots of Charlene and the girls sampling a tasty pint of Guinness and the creamy head which remained  on their lips, all the video footage was totally natural relaxed and not in any way set up. Bunratty Park is a popular tourist venue in Limerick and of coarse its also an ideal location for wedding photographers and videographers, I love shooting video there.

Thanks to Charlene & Jason for choosing Drangan video to shoot and produce their wedding film, it was another fab Limerick wedding and Im looking forward to many more in and around  the south west of Ireland during 2015/2016.  The above highlights have already been shared on my Drangan video facebook page ,      Google+     and     Vimeo
