Here at Carasmatic Creations, we make what my grandmother would call "scratch cakes". The key difference between made from scratch and store-bought cake is that scratch cakes begin with basic, identifiable ingredients like butter, eggs, sugar, salt, baking soda or powder etc. Most importantly, scratch cakes should not contain the additive, propylene glycol (PG) which is an additive used to maintain moisture and flavor quality for longer periods of time to stabilize prepared foods and extend its shelf life. Propylene glycol may also be found in flavorings and color gels used to color icings and buttercreams.
Carasmatic Creations Products are PG free unless there is a request for coloring in the icings and buttercreams or if there is a special flavoring request where a PG free flavoring option cannot be found. Our ultimate goal here at Carasmatic Creations is to provide our customers with the healthiest sweet treat options on the planet and we are constantly looking for healthier products and ingredients for our baked goods. That's why our motto is still the same and is the reason we started this business and that is to provide customers with the opportunity to "EAT REAL CAKE" by providing product delivery and shipping right to your doorstep. #eatrealcake #sumterweddings #sumterbakery #madefromscratch #celebrationconcierge #weddingconcierge #carasmaticcreations #onamissionforchildren #weddingcakes #birthdaycakes
You and your partner have decided on a cake you like. What's next? First, you will want to be sure to ask your bakery if they deliver and setup and the costs. Nothing is worse than having to set up your own cake. Second, you will want to make sure what time they are delivering and setting up. Timing is everything! If you have a buttercream cake & an indoor wedding they should arrive no more than 2 hours before the wedding, and if you have a buttercream cake & an outdoor wedding they should arrive no more than an hour before the wedding. I would strongly encourage you to have a fondant cake for your outdoor wedding, especially in the south. Lastly, you will want to talk with caterers and reception venue about the cake table and location (i.e., you don't want cake in direct sunlight at your outdoor wedding) and you will want to get EVERYTHING IN WRITING. Your bakery should provide you with a detailed contract/invoice that explains their company policies, deposits to secure your date and final payment, and the details of your wedding cake. Read over all contracts carefully and if changes are made be sure to get an updated copy for your records. Also be sure to book as soon as possible and secure your date because cake prices are driven by food prices that usually increase twice a year or more. So be sure to lock your price in as much as a year in advance to avoid the increase. #weddingcake #weddingplanner #madefromscratch #deliveryandshipping #weddingpro #diywedding #sumterbakery #onamissionforchildren#carasmaticcreations #buttercream#fondant #wedding #nuptials #weddingvenue #gettingmarried #Ido #outdoorwedding #indoorwedding #bakery #glutenfree

Schedule a cake tasting. Wedding cakes and favors can be a major expense whether you have a DIY wedding or one that is 'no-holds-barred'. The last thing you want to do is have a cake that doesn't meet your expectations of your special day. So always "taste b4u waste" and have in mind at least 3-4 flavors you would like to try. Make sure the flavors suit you and your partner, after all, you two will be the first to eat it.
Do your research! Find out if the bakery you plan to use bakes from scratch because it makes a world of difference. A quick way to find out is to ask if their products contain propylene glycol mono, an additive that is used in most cake mixes. If they can't tell you right then and there whether or not their products contain this additive, then more than likely they are using a cake mix.
Fall is the new wedding season in the South. The weather is cooler, the grass is green and some flowers are still in bloom. You have gotten engaged and now you must begin to plan your wedding. When choosing your wedding cake and favors you should follow the following steps according to wedding planning experts:
