The process of planning and creating a design for your cake is one of the most fun and relaxed aspects of your wedding. It allows your creativity and style to truly evolve and we will work closely together to ensure that your cake is not just everything that you want it to be, rather, it will be more than you could have ever dreamt it could be.
As soon as you know the date for your wedding and know that you are drawn to my style of cake I would advise that you contact me to check my availability. I only take on two wedding cakes per week in peak season so space in my diary can be limited.
Once my availability is confirmed I ask for a small non-refundable deposit to secure your space.
Once your deposit is secured we will fix a consultation date, either in person or via zoom. Consultations are held during the autumn and early in the New Year; during this time I dispatch monthly sample boxes that you may order through my website. (The cost of one box can be redeemed against your booking)
Over the course of your consultation we will discuss your design ideas. I will learn and understand the importance of ”The Cake’ to you, establish what your style is, the theme and tone of your day, the venue, your styling and also your vibe so that the design of the cake truly enhances your day and helps tie everything together.
At this point it is worth noting that I no longer make naked, semi-naked or buttercream cakes with fresh flowers.
In the week following your consultation I will send you over my design ideas along with a quote for your cake.
Over the course of the next few days/week we will tweak the design, once we are all happy that the cake is perfect for you I’ll reconfirm the quote with you (this may have changed depending on the design)
Now all you have to do is sit back and relax, your hard work is complete and the rest is in my hands.
The countdown ...…. A month prior to the wedding I like you to firm up your flavours options, I will forward you a final invoice four weeks prior to the wedding.
If I am making sugar flowers for you I will already have liaised with your florist to ensure that the colour pallet is correct and the process of hand making them will already be well underway A week prior to the wedding I will confirm timings for set up and delivery with your venue.
On the big day…. Enjoy every second!
I will have delivered and set up your cake well in advance of you arriving so there is no need for you to worry about anything other than enjoying your beautiful day and eating delicious cake.
As I only take on two weddings per week It is never too early to enquire about availability for you wedding date.
