When you're planning your bachelorette party, you're no doubt considering all the different trendy themes, where to host it, and even who to invite. But another thing to take into consideration is having a bachelorette party cake. This dessert is wonderful for any party, and there are so many creative ideas for your bach bash. Let's look at some inspiration to get your started on planning the ultimate bachelorette party, complete with a tasty cake your bridesmaids will love.

In this story:

The simple answer? Yes. What party isn't already made better with a cake? And besides, you'll need something to snack on during your late night partying. Just add a cake to your party planning checklist and make sure whoever's paying for the party knows to pick it up from your favorite bake shop.

Just make sure to find a local baker who can fit your vision. California-based bachelorette cake expert Jeremy Jarman, pastry chef and culinary instructor, has some tips for this. The pro, who has nearly a decade of pastry experience, shares that "when you talk to your baker, give them details on what the event is celebrating, the theme of the event, colors, your budget and some inspiration photos. You can ask the cake decorator if they have photos of cakes they have decorated in that style before to give you an idea of how it could look. Every cake is unique and every cake decorator has a different style so making sure you are both on the same page about the design is very important."

What to Write on a Bachelorette Cake

What to write on your bachelorette cake really comes down to the vibe you're going for. If you're a foodie bachelorette, you can keep it simple and just let the cake do the talking. But if you want to write some fun sayings that are on theme, you can always go with catchphrases like "bach before the big bash" or "last fling before the ring." And one important design element when decorating is knowing which type of icing your baker will be using. Jeremy Jarman adds, "When I design cakes, I always think in terms of buttercream. It tastes better than fondant and is easier to store once the cake is decorated. It is also just a gorgeous medium."
