How to Order your Wedding Cake...
To ensure every cake receives the love and attention to detail that it deserves, I work on a maximum of 2 cakes per week.
Dates can fill up fast, especially during peak wedding season, so it is recommended to give as much notice as possible, preferably 9 -12 months ahead of your wedding date. I work on a first come first served basis; the first deposit paid will secure the date.
In the first instance you are welcome to contact me to check that I have availability for your wedding date - it's never too early to enquire! I will be able to provide you with some information on how to order and if required, an estimation on price, based on the information provided.
Tasting Consultations are held at my home in Bradley Stoke, Bristol and are a relaxed and informal way for us to get to know each other and discuss your wedding cake requirements in more detail. Delicious, freshly baked cake samples are served in 3 different flavours to help you to decide what you would like your cake to taste like, served with tea or coffee this is the perfect combination! You will also be able to view some pretty display cakes to help to inspire you.
Consultations are also a perfect opportunity to bring along any colour swatches, design ideas or mood boards that you may have to help me with the design process. There is a £20 fee for Consultations (2 people per session), however this is fully redeemed against your full cake order.
A quotation based on your requirements will then be sent to you, along with a sketched design of your cake (not applicable for semi-naked cakes) to give you a visual idea of how your wedding cake will look. A non-refundable deposit of £100 is required to save the date in my diary and this is fully redeemed against the final balance of your cake. The full outstanding balance is due 1 month prior to your Wedding Day.
All further details will be communicated via email and you can relax in the lead up to your wedding knowing that your wedding cake is all in hand. Due to the delicate nature of wedding cakes and sugar flowers, I will personally hand deliver and set your cake up at your venue. Prior to your wedding I will personally liaise with your Wedding Coordinator at the Venue to ensure everything looks perfect for when you walk into your venue and see your beautiful cake for the first time!
I love to work closely with you to design your perfect cake. There are so many options these days with different textures, colours and finishes. Then there is deciding whether to have sugar flowers, fresh flowers or no flowers at all; it can be difficult to know where to begin! At the Consultation I will guide you through the process and design a cake that you love. You will receive a personalised sketch of your cake which also makes a lovely keepsake of your special day!
