The Art of a Properly Planned and Perfectly Implemented Cake Delivery
It is the centerpiece of every festivity. That carefully baked flawlessly adorned dessert. It is an indispensable part of every celebration and the whole lot must be just right, the taste, the form, and yes, the cake delivery. Making certain the centerpiece of the party arrives in pristine condition is the essence of every cake delivery service.
The first thing to do to ensure that nothing goes wrong with the delivery is to make sure that the cake is enough to survive the delivery. The cake does not have to be hard and stiff to be hard. It will not be nice to eat a cake like that. By toughness, we denote endurance and the structural strength of the cake. The cake should not fall apart when moved and gets a little out of its center of gravity. It is of paramount importance to arrange the cake in an even, stable surface, making sure the entire cake will not slide off or drop through the base. Spend enough to prepare adequate material for a stable base. Trying to save on base material can have disastrous effects and often cost you more of your time and money.
The cake box should be the right size to contain your cake in the best fit possible. Cake boxes in various sizes and design from petite cakes to grand multi-leveled ones can be bought from your neighborhood cake decorating shops and supply merchants. While it is ideal to deliver multi tiered cakes complete and stacked, it would be safer to transport them in different boxes if level numbers more than three. Keep in mind to select a box a little larger than the cake to allow room for unavoidable movements and to prevent the icing and decorations from touching the sides of the box.
Putting the cake in a box not only makes it more simple to deliver but also provides space for the cake ornaments and guards the cake from dust, dirt and damage that it can incur during delivery.
Icing is also of special concern in cake delivery. Some icing components are easily damaged by outside factors like heat. Icing can melt and destroy the cake during hot weather conditions. Road bumps and rough delivery can also mess up cake icing.
A delivery cart can also be used to move multi-leveled cakes for easier maneuvering and to keep the cake balanced. When removing the cake out of the box, you could cut one side of the box and slowly slide the cake out, instead of just carelessly pulling it out of the box. Some tools for restorative touches and enough icing should always be in hand, just in case some unexpected mishaps happen.
Cake delivery is not a difficult and complicated job with some careful preparation and implementation of the plan. The reward for a job well done is not only monetary. It is also in seeing the delight in the debutante's eyes, the happiness in the wedding couple's faces and hearing the joy in children's voices in a birthday celebration, when they set their eyes on your perfectly delivered cake.
