by The Place Store 23 Feb 2023

Cakes are the centerpiece of many celebrations, whether it's a birthday party, wedding, or anniversary. Choosing the right cake for your event can be overwhelming, especially with so many options available. In this blog, we'll give you some tips to help you choose the perfect cake for your next celebration.

  • Determine the Size of Your Cake:

    The first step in choosing a cake is to determine the size you need. Consider the number of guests attending the event and the size of the portions you would like to serve. Generally, a 6-inch cake serves 6-8 people, an 8-inch cake serves 10-12 people, and a 10-inch cake serves 16-22 people.

    • Choose Your Flavor:

      The flavor of the cake is an important consideration. Popular flavours include vanilla, and chocolate, but you can also choose more unique flavours like rose lychee or strawberry. Consider the preferences of your guests and the theme of your event when choosing a flavor.

      • Select Your Design:

        The design of your cake can be customized to your preferences. You can choose a design with our standard cake or custom decorations. Consider the theme of your event when choosing a design and discuss the options with your cake designer.

        • Plan Ahead:

          When ordering a cake, it's important to plan ahead. Many cake  require several weeks' notice, especially for custom designs. Be sure to order your cake in advance to ensure that it will be ready for your event.

          • Find a Trusted Cake Designer:

            Finding a trusted cake designer is essential to ensure that your cake is of the highest quality. Look for a cake designer who has experience creating the type of cake you want and who uses high-quality ingredients. Read reviews and ask for referrals from friends and family.


            Choosing the perfect cake for your celebration can be an exciting and fun process. By following these tips and working with a trusted cake designer, you can ensure that your cake is delicious and visually stunning. Remember to plan ahead, choose the right size and flavor, and find a cake designer who can bring your vision to life. With a little bit of effort, your cake can be the highlight of your next celebration.
