If you are cake baker, whether you operate from home or are employed by a company, there are common requests you will receive while being in this profession. Here are a few ideas to expect;
The easiest order you will receive are the monotone, one flavoured or cupcakes that take very little imagination. A few examples are, plain, classic vanilla or chocolate, Christmas and date cake. Then you get the brownie orders and chocolate cupcakes. Cupcake orders will be different as your customers may ask you to play around with the icing colours or flavours of the cupcake base.
Don’t you love the sugary, chocolate-y orders you get from your customers who you know may get diabetes after just a slice of the ordered cake? These are the ‘death by chocolate cakes’ you see in your favourite bakery or coffee house. However, instead of just a slice of it on display, you make the whole dessert.
Nutella, Snickers, Oreos and just a few common toppings or fillings that are ordered. Then you have the caramel lovers and the nut fans. The thing with these ones are that you have the freedom to be imaginative during preparation and you can never go wrong with too much chocolate.
For a Function
As the name states, these are ordered for specific functions such as birthdays or weddings. Wedding cakes Sydney and engagement cakes typically go with a floral theme with light colours such as white, cream or even baby pink. Youngster’s birthday cakes would probably go hand in hand with whichever the most popular cartoon is during the time. These cakes are mostly decided according to the running theme and colour scheme of the party.
Naughty or Graphic
These are the most fun cakes in the market in my opinion. Customers can be very imaginative with what they require. Majority of them are catered for bachelor and bachelorette parties, and of course the occasional 18th or 21st birthday parties. Most customers would ask for skimpily covered private parts or nude designs with various colour for clothing attire. Other types of ‘good’ cakes can include pictures of cars or sports equipment. Then you have the cakes with props such as dolls or accessories such as shoes and handbags. These ones are all prepared for harmless fun so you could get a good laugh out of your creation. To all budding bakers out there, hopefully this prepared you for what orders you can expect from your customers.
