Amy Noelle of Sugar Flower Cake Shop says, "Share what you know you don't want so the cake designer knows what to avoid."
"Consider what you like on other cakes. Piping? Textured icing look? Make a Pinterest board or collect pictures of cakes you like so the designer can see them. If you see a cake at another wedding, take a picture of the cake so you can show your cake designer an idea of what you want. A designer would never make the same cake. It would need to be personalized to you."
