Top Bakers related questions

Are a cake maker and a baker the same thing?

Although there is some overlap in skills, a cake maker is usually a specialist in cake baking and decorating. On the other hand, bakers often make cakes alongside a wide range of other artisanal baked goods like rye bread and kouign amann. If you need either, you can simply indicate in your task the requirements. Taskers who send in their offers can send you their recent works or give you an idea of their speciality.

What are some popular flavours of custom cakes?

The most popular flavours used are traditional butter, sponge, and mud cakes. You don’t have to limit yourself, though. Airtasker can help you find a cake bakery near you that offers custom cakes in other flavours such as carrot, banana, and red velvet. For more unique flavours, Taskers who bake by order request can also help out. Satisfy your cravings for matcha crêpes or espresso-flavoured bread rolls.

How long does it take to bake and decorate a cake?

Although baking time is relatively short, at around 40 minutes, shaping and decorating your cake can take up to several days. The size and complexity of the designs can affect the total preparation time. While bakeshops offer fresh-out-of-the-oven delights for bakery delivery near you, most cake makers need to bake the cake base a few days in advance to make sure they’re cooled and ready for decorating before your party.

What are some of the most common occasions for custom cakes?

Cakes are commonly used to celebrate special occasions, like weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries. They’re also popular snacks and desserts for corporate events. Through social media, more and more creative cake decorations are gaining popularity. They are no longer just dessert. A lot of cakes are also bought for their beautiful design. They are also easy to brand, so it’s a popular gift for clients from businesses.

How many people will a standard cake serve?

A standard 20-cm or 8-inch single-tier round cake will serve 16 people, and a square cake will accommodate 20. Serving sizes will also depend on whether you’re offering cake as a snack or as a standalone dessert. If you need a sweet or light meal that is easy to distribute among the guests, you can opt for cupcakes, doughnuts, brownies and other dessert options.

How much does it cost to hire a cake maker?

The cost of hiring a cake maker or a baker depends on many factors. The final rate will depend on the type of occasion, the size of the cake, the type of decorations, and how long it’s likely to take for the Tasker to bake. To illustrate, wedding cakes are generally more expensive than regular store-bought birthday cakes. 

What do bakers services include?

Besides offering freshly baked bread, a baker near you can create custom cakes for birthdays and special occasions. Some local bakers even provide gluten-free and dairy-free bread, pastries, and cakes. Here’s what to expect when booking a baker on Airtasker:

Wedding cakes

You don’t need to settle for a plain cake for your wedding day, with a cake baker who can create an exquisite and delicious custom wedding cake in your favourite flavour and design. Your cake maker can talk to you, your caterer and even the head chef about your wedding location and theme, as well as guest numbers. Then they can provide recommendations on the cake style and size.

Most bakers also offer a wedding cake tasting session, so you can choose the flavour you prefer. They can also carefully transport your cake to the reception venue on your big day, adding fresh flowers or other decorations to polish the look and make it even more eye-catching.

Corporate cakes and cupcakes

Corporate branded cakes and cupcakes are a great addition to any event. You can order cupcakes for product launches, store openings, conferences, or even just as an afternoon tea treat for your staff.

Your local baker can also recommend you either order a large sheet cake to serve a crowd or enough cakes for everyone. You can even choose customised fondant or chocolate discs displaying your brand. Your hired Tasker can then safely deliver your cakes to your workplace or venue.

Kids’ birthday cakes

From the latest cartoon characters to fancy colours and shapes, kid’s birthday cakes can take time to get right. A professional cake decorator can first help you decide on a flavour for kids. They may likely stick with a simple vanilla butter cake or chocolate cake to appeal to kids’ taste buds. Some cake makers may offer set cake designs to choose from, or you can share an inspiration picture for a custom cake. 

Next, your Tasker can bake the cake, cut and shape it to the design, and then use buttercream for filling and icing. Depending on the design, they may use fondant for all-over icing and to create animals or characters. You can also request that your cake includes your child’s name and age on the cake or cake board. Afterwards, they can have your cake and other surprise gifts delivered on the morning of his birthday party!

Special occasion cakes

Baked goodies are often used to bring everyone together at the end of a celebration. Whether it’s a custom birthday cake, christening cake, or anniversary cake, your baker will create the perfectly sized cake or even prepare a whole dessert spread to serve all your guests. Common options include sponge cake with buttercream icing and a special message. Still, a more modern take can include doughnut walls, cupcake towers and dessert grazing boards.
