As easy and incredible as it is to devour a cake, picking it is just as challenging. So, if you are someone who finds buying a cake for loved ones a painful task, we have some good news for you.  We have curated a list of tips for ordering a cake for someone else. So, without delay, let us dive into the 7 points to consider when choosing a cake for loved ones.

However, others prefer cakes only on special occasions. So, when you are choosing a cake for loved ones, you must keep the celebration in mind, whether it is an anniversary or birthday.  So, based on the celebratory cause, you can get suitable cakes. For graduations, farewells, congratulations, weddings, and so on, you get cakes on similar themes.

Yes, you can opt for classic vanilla or chocolate cakes, but it is always better to pick something fancier.   Like, for your friend's birthday, you can get a car or a sports-themed cake. Similarly, on Valentine's Day or your anniversary, heart-shaped cakes are an 'it' thing. So, the design you choose, be it a photo cake or a cartoon must match the recipient's choice, personality, and the occasion. 

Diet Preferences & Restrictions 

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="485"] Source: GIPHY[/caption] When buying a cake for loved ones, you need to always keep their dietary preferences and restrictions in mind. After all, you are not getting a cake for yourself. So, if they lead a vegan lifestyle, it is best if you get a vegan cake.  If you are unaware of the recipient's dietary preferences, you can ask someone. If not, it is always safe to get an eggless cake to ensure you do not offend anyone.  Getting a cake for loved ones can be risky, so you must keep this point at the top when browsing through the collection.

So, how do you get out of this fix?  It is simple! You get a cake for loved ones in their favourite flavour. That can be durian, red velvet, coffee, caramel, matcha, or anything else, as long as it's their go-to flavour because it is the best and safest choice. If you do not know their fav cake flavour, you need to ask around, and if that does not work, you will have to wing it with mixed fruit or chocolate cakes.

So, how will you decide what size should the cake be?  If you are attending an intimate event, a 500 to 1000 grams cake is sufficient, as everyone gets a slice, and there is some still left.  However, for a grander celebration, you can choose a bigger one. So, if it's your wedding, you need a massive cake, but if it's a housewarming party, a 2kg cake is pretty good.  Just remember that it is a cake for loved ones, so it is like a gift, and it need not be massive or overwhelming for the recipient. 


[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="419"] Source: GIPHY[/caption] Everything in life comes down to the cost! You can empty your pockets to get a cake of the century, but is it worth it? It is a cake, so it should not make you feel like you have burned a hole in your pocket.  Some cakes, be it for design, brand, or flavour cost steep. So, you should pick a cake for loved ones that fit your budget and leave you happy instead of bitter about buying an expensive gift. 

Home Delivery Service

Not to forget, you don't always have time to buy it from a store.  That's where online cake delivery comes, and brands like FNP are masters at offering impeccable cakes and delivery services. So, be hassle-free by opting for an online cake for loved ones that comes to your house on the same day.
