Hosting an event is often a challenging yet rewarding experience. Between the guest list, decorations, activities, and food, there are a lot of things to jungle to ensure your event goes off without a hitch. It might seem easier and more cost-efficient to handle foods, including desserts, on your own. While whipping up homemade desserts does add a personal touch, it also requires time, skill, and oven space.

3 Factors to Consider

If you’re still wondering whether or not you should work with a bakery to secure sweet treats for your special day, you need to think about what desserts you’d like to serve, how many people are attending, and how much time you can dedicate to baking.
