Just think before you act.

Trust: There are more tactful ways of saying what you're thinking. Heed our advice, and read on before you order your wedding cake.

Can you make it look like the cake I saw on Pinterest?

Unless all the cakes you've got pinned on your "<3 Dream Wedding <3" board are being cut into by a bride and groom, there's a chance they were created just for a photo shoot. You've heard what food stylists do to their subjects: They doctor them up with completely inedible helpers. Your baker will try their hardest to make your cake perfect, but — newsflash — you want to be able to eat it.

Can I get your recipe?

As Cake Central user glenskendall pointed out, "Umm…no, I don't share my recipes." She says it's like walking into McDonald's and asking, "Can you give me the recipe for a Big Mac so that I can make it myself and not spend any money on your product?" If you want to taste something made by a pro, go ahead and purchase it.

Can you just make us your favorite cake?

This is your big day, attended by your family and friends. Take a moment to think about what you and your partner and all your guests will enjoy, and order that. Don't set your baker up for failure, in case their favorite doesn't turn out to be yours.

Will you waive the delivery fee if I pick up my own cake?

Yes, a caterer or baker usually will, but you'll now be responsible for anything that happens during transport. "I'd need to have you sign a statement releasing me from any damage after it leaves my hands," wrote DeniseNH on Cake Central. "Look of shock on bride's face as she rethinks the delivery fee and her schedule on that day."

Can you not make the icing so sweet?

When you ask so bluntly, it sounds like a direct insult. Instead, Kiddiekakes wrote on Cake Central, you should ask, "What types of frosting do you offer?" That way, your baker can describe them and you can decide which one best fits your tastes.

Can you budge on the price?

You're not at a flea market; you're in someone's workplace. Not only is it offensive to haggle, but bakers come to their prices honestly: You're charged per serving and for certain decorations.

Can you make it look like one of the Cake Boss's cakes?

Before choosing the person who's going to be making your wedding cake, you should look at their past work. If it jives with what you want, be kind and reference past cakes they've made, not someone else's.
