I am doing my first wedding cake and I have a question about setup. How many hours in advance on the day of the wedding do you usually setup the cake? This is for an indoor wedding in June of which I am also a guest. Do I coordinate this with the wedding reception site? Is there anything I need to ask for. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.
I try to set up the cake to finish within about 1/2 hour of the reception (depending on lots of other factors) If your cake does not need refrigeration, you could set up much earlier, if you had to.
Be sure it isn't warm in the hall, and that it is away from the band and any windows.
