Q&A with Danielle from The Master’s Baker
- How would you describe your style as a baker?
Our style caters to the modern couple and traditional alike. Our team consists of cake designers skilled in mediums such as buttercream piping, hand painting and sculpture art.
- What should couples think about before they come in for a tasting?
It is helpful when a couple comes in with an idea of the feeling they are looking for. If there is a certain inspiration for the cake, we will design from that and make their cake dreams come to life.
- What should couples expect at a cake tasting?
Every couple gets a 45 min tasting in our gorgeous and spacious cake gallery. This includes time with our wedding consultant to discuss design. They will then taste seven of our most popular cake flavors, paired with our traditional buttercream and homemade fillings and jams. The couple can also contact us before hand to request the purchase of a custom sampler or pastry sampler to try out while they are there, or to take home.
- What are your most popular flavors?
Our most popular flavors have been our red velvet and pink champagne, but they do change with the season.
- Do you have any pointers for a successful cake tasting?
Come to your tasting with an open mind and an empty stomach. Have some ideas in mind of what you do and do not want your cake to look like, both are very important.
- Are there any misconceptions couples have about the process?
It is hard for people who are not in the industry to understand how time consuming some cake designs can be. All of the cakes are an edible work of art and need to be priced accordingly. With that being said, we do offer a large gallery of cakes that are offered in their package that are beautiful as well.
- What do you love about baking wedding cakes?
Knowing that our cake will be enjoyed by so many, in such a joyous event is something that will never get old!
- Do you have any tips for couples looking for the perfect wedding cake?
The cake can be a great reflection of the couple’s personality. There are so many possibilities and the sky’s the limit.
- Are there any cake trends you are excited about?
Beautiful flowers are really in trend right now. Painted buttercream accents and moody colors!
- How have you adapted your tastings?
We are offering appointments over zoom now where you will discuss your design with our consultant. We offer our couples the option to pick up their cake samples prior to their appointment to taste at home as well!
- Is there a Springfield Country Club wedding cake that still sticks out?
We really do love every wedding cake that has been made for Springfield Country Club. We look forward to making many more over the years!
