hm good question. It really depends on what kind of cake baker you go with. Most wedding cakes get refrigerated multiple times to allow time for the icing to set between the crumb coat, the outside frosting, the decorations, etc. It’s usually a multiple step process and takes at least 3 days to make a wedding cake. Larger bakeries can handle more than one wedding per day.

If you are looking for a cake designer with a smaller operation who bakes and decorates themself and delivers it themself, then I would say it’s more risky for them to do 2 cakes on the same day. I would say it really depends on the type of baking business they run.

I really wouldn’t worry about it… If the vendor is checking with you on the time to make sure it will work, it means she’s looking out for that very same thing.  I would trust her on it, and not cancel a tasting for that reason alone.  If you think about it, limiting to one cake per wedding weekend (or even day) wouldn’t be very lucrative for her!

Yes, as long as the set up isn’t the exact same time, they should be fine. Bakers can make many cakes at the same time, just as long as they don’t all have to be set up at the same time. All you have to do is make sure your set up time is written in your contract BEFORE you book.
