Hill Country Cakery feels like home
We all know the wedding cake helps set the tone of a wedding. Consequently, Tammy Waxler of Hill Country Cakery does everything she can to help couples pick the right one. Hill Country Cakery is Tammy’s home away from home. Therefore, she designed her shop to make customers comfortable and their experience enjoyable. “I love being able to connect with everyone and be a part of their lives moving forward. You feel like you’re part of their family after a while.”
Know what you can spend
You and your partner should know what kind of cake you want by the end of your wedding cake consultation. According to Tammy, the best way to start planning your cake is to know how much you can spend. Knowing your budget before going into the consultation will allow your baker to give you options. Therefore you can stay within your limit and still get exactly what you want. Otherwise, you could have some serious sticker shock.
Order what you want
Listening to everyone else’s ideas is one of the common mistakes Tammy sees. Of course, Pinteresting too much and stressing over the details are also on the list. “I want the cake to be about them” she said. For Tammy, the process of planning a wedding and picking out the cake should be relaxed and truly about what the couple wants.
You ARE allowed to get something fun and creative for your cake! Tammy stressed that you don’t need to go with a cake your mom wants or that tradition dictates. “A lot of the times i am asked to do something I’ve never done.”
Loving the challenge, Tammy has taken on many kinds of wedding cakes. Hill Country Cakery was recently hired to make a wedding cake that had individually layered Oreo dirt cups with gummy worms. It was completely different than her sister’s traditional wedding cake which she also made. “I love that she is going with something that is very much her,” said Tammy. In conclusion, know how much you are willing to spend, get to know your baker, and give them room to be creative! You’ll be happier for it!
