Top Bakery related questions

Is a cake maker and a baker the same thing?

Although there’s some overlap in skills, a cake maker is usually a specialist in cake baking and decorating, while bakers often make cakes, alongside a wide range of other baked goods.

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.

What are some popular flavours of custom cakes?

Traditional butter, sponge, or mud cakes are all popular choices. But you can also order custom cakes in other flavours such as carrot, banana, and red velvet.

How many people will a standard cake serve?

A standard 20cm or 8-inch single-tier round cake will serve 16 people and a square cake will serve 20. Serving sizes will also depend whether you’re offering cake as a snack or as a standalone dessert.

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

Although baking time is relatively short (around 40 minutes), shaping and decorating your cake can take up to several days, depending on the cake size and how complex your decorations are. Many cake makers will bake cakes a few days in advance to make sure they’re cooled and ready for decorating before your party.

How much does it cost to hire a cake maker?

The cost of hiring a cake maker is usually between $60-$130 when you hire them through Airtasker. The price will depend on the type of occasion (wedding cakes are generally more), the size of the cake, the type of decorations, and how long it’s likely to take.

What do professional baking services include?

A cake baker near you can help with custom cakes for birthdays and special occasions, simple and delicious sheet cakes to serve to a crowd, or gorgeous wedding cakes for your special day. Here’s what you can expect from some of the most common cake making services:

Wedding cake

You don’t need to settle for fruit 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 will talk to you about your wedding location and theme, as well as guest numbers. Then they’ll provide recommendations on the cake style and size. Most cake makers also offer a wedding cake tasting session so you can choose the flavour you prefer. Your professional cake baker will carefully transport your cake to the reception venue on your big day, adding fresh flowers or other decorations to finish it off.

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 a morning tea treat for your staff. Your cake maker will 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 cake maker will safely deliver your cakes to your workplace or venue.

Kids’ birthday cakes

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

Special occasion cakes

Cakes 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 cake maker will prepare the perfect size cake to serve all your guests. Common options include sponge cake with buttercream icing and a special message, or a fondant covered mud or fruit cake with simple decorations. Your cake professional will present the cake in a box for easy transport and storage.

We need a birthday cake for a 4 year old's party, and he wants it to look like a dragon. Here is an idea: https://ohmycake.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/CKE084.jpg We already have the horns so you wouldn't need to supply those, it just needs to be a few layers of sponge separated by Buttercream, and with green buttercream on the outside, along with some sort of dragon face. Please contact me with any questions
