Mini desserts for your wedding

Many couples have come to us recently in wanting to do a small cake and a dessert table. We have been working hard the last couple of weeks to come up with new ideas and recipes for our dessert menu. If you haven’t had a chance to see our menu, please email us!

We have a wide variety of mini desserts ranging from the classic cream puff filled with pastry cream to a decadent chocolate mousse cup that your guests can eat! We get requests for items that are not on our menu and if this is something we can make, we’d love to add it to our menu!

When selecting pastries for your guests, our rule of thumb is about 3 pastries per person. Our staff here can help you select items and give you a quote on your order. Happy planning!IMG_1469

Groom’s cakes- Q&A

Over the past year we have had many requests for groom’s cakes. We get a lot of questions from brides who are unsure of what to ask about or unsure what type of design they should get. Here are some of our most popular questions asked along with answers.

 

“How many people do I need the cake to serve?”

Our smallest cake we customize serves about 20-25 people. We go up from there in increments of 10 for serving. It will depend if you are having it at the rehearsal dinner, which you would need enough to serve your guests there. If it’s served at your wedding, then you can get away with a smaller cake because you will already be having wedding cake and/or desserts served.

 

“What kind of design should I get?”

This will depend on if you’d like to do a theme of his interests, favorite sports team, favorite beer, favorite band or just have a yummy dessert cake. We do any type of design you’d like. Our most popular theme would be the groom’s favorite sports team mixed in with one of his interests. We have done everything from sports, to a dog, hunting, fishing, to  favorite candy bars! We have a whole album dedicated on our website along with our Facebook. Just click right here for our party cake gallery and click on Groom’s cake to see some of our work.  http://themastersbaker.com/party-cakes/

 

“How much does it cost?”

Since we are a custom bakery, each cake has a different price. We have starting prices for our cakes, which do include certain decorations. The more you customize, the higher the price. Sky is the limit for us, it just depends on what your budget is!

 

“I have a budget for the cake, can you do anything for me?”

ABSOLUTELY! We will do our best to come up with a design in your theme and within your budget.  Our team is always willing to work with our clients for any type of cake.

 

“Can I talk about the design at my cake tasting appointment?”

We would love to talk about that, however there usually is not enough time to talk about the details. You can always give us a call and talk about the cake over the phone, or even by email. Sending pictures of what you like is always helpful. It lets us know what kind of vision you are wanting the cake to be. You can always stop by our shop any time during our business hours, you do not need any appointment.

 

“You are creating my wedding cake. Can you deliver the groom’s cake with the wedding cake?”

Yes we can! We will deliver the groom’s cake and the wedding cake together at no additional charge.

Hero of the week

We have a staff meeting every week where we get together, talk about upcoming events and reminders. Our general manager, Chad, started an idea where each week we choose a hero of the week. This is for an employee who has gone the extra mile in working hard or just made a positive difference at the bakery. Our 1st Hero of the Week was our assistant pastry chef, Maren!

Maren has been with us now for a year. She is a great asset to our team. You may have even seen her at the Philly cooks event back in February or recently at the Victory Brewing “Girls just wanna have suds” event. She is very knowledgeable of baking and pastry and stays on top of what needs to get done. She even comes in on the weekends when we have large pastry orders to be filled for our weddings that weekend. She has a great attitude and makes each dessert look their best for the weddings. Congratulations Maren!

Wedding anniversary cakes

When you have your wedding cake made by us, one of the great things we include after your wedding is a complimentary first year anniversary cake! Many couples are turned away from the idea of freezing a small cake for a whole year. Well, if we have made your wedding cake then you get to come back to us for a fresh one. You can choose any flavor  and we decorate this with our beautiful buttercream roses!

Many people wonder why we even started freezing those top layers in the first place. It all started a long time ago, about the 19th century. Couples would save their cake because many had babies right after they got married. So then they would bring out the cake and use it for this celebration as well. Cakes were not made with the same ingredients they are made with now. Many were soaked with alcohol, such as brandy, and this would preserve the cake for a while. Aren’t you glad you can just come back to us for a fresh cake!?

We do ask that you give us a call about 1-2 weeks before. We will have it baked fresh, decorated beautifully and ready for you to pick it up!
