The right cake for the right occasion – easy tips to help you choose

A grand occasion calls for a celebration, and no celebration is complete without a sweet offering. Cakes and pastries are a crowd favourite on such occasions; there is hardly anyone who would shy away from taking a bite of a well-made cake. Not only this, cakes also make for great gifts. From a birthday to an anniversary, farewells to homecomings – as long as there is an event that calls for a commemoration, one can always find a cake for it. Even the humble evening tea is not complete without a cake to go with it!

Now, nothing beats a home-made cake. And if you want to really show someone you care, taking the time to bake their favourite cake is, of course, the best way to do so. But, not all of us have the time or the skills to bake the perfect hunger-inducing goodie, which is why we sometimes have to resort to outside help. Given the proliferation of bakers and patisseries in the country, it has become fairly easy to order cakes online. Happiness and deliciousness are now just a click away! But whether you choose to bake a cake from scratch the way your grandma did, or buy one from a store, it is very important to find the right cake for the occasion. If you find yourself in a quandary wondering which cake to buy for your party, here are some tips that might help:

Match your cake to the occasion:

Would you eat a gooey butter-filled angel food cake with your tea? Absolutely not! Similarly, a plain pound cake would not befit a huge event. You need to match your cake to the occasion, always. If you are baking the cake at home and trying a new recipe, do a trial run before the D-day so that there are no loopholes. If you are buying the cake, try talking to the chef and heed his recommendations. This way, you will never go wrong when selecting a cake for others.

Take dietary quirks into consideration:

Gone are the days when cakes meant only butter, eggs, and flour. Nowadays, you have a whole range of choices available to meet all dietary needs. Eggless cakes, gluten-free, low-fat cakes and more are the norm today. You can bake these at home with tried and tested recipes or find a baker who can work around the dietary restrictions you mention. After all, what is the fun in ordering a dessert when half of your party does not want to eat it?

Always do a taste test:

If you do not have the time to bake the cake for your party or are unsure of the recipe, make sure you order it from a reputed baker who can deliver it on time. Do a taste-test first, and only then go ahead with placing the order. If you wish, you can even make a fun day out of it by tagging a friend along as you taste the sweet offerings at nearby bakeries, , but if you are ordering online, trust only the reputed stores.

With a little patience and research, you can find the right cake you need for your party. And after you are done choosing the perfect dessert, you can spend the rest of your time planning the nitty-gritty’s of a fabulous party!
