Wedding Cake Order Process

Congratulations!

If you have chosen your wedding date or have a date in mind please get in touch as soon as possible to check availability.

 

To give each cake the attention it deserves, I work on only 1-2 wedding cake commissions per week, which is why I recommend that you reserve your date as soon as possible. I am happy to pencil you in my diary, however, a 50% non-refundable deposit is required to fully secure your date in my diary.

 

Design Process:

I will liaise with you via email to design your bespoke wedding cake. Whether you have seen a photo of your dream cake on Pinterest or have no idea at all, together we will create the ultimate centrepiece for your special day.

 

As a one-woman business, I have found it best to consult with you regarding design details via email. This allows me to meet the needs of all my clients, allows me sufficient time to sketch out your design enabling you to envisage your cake a lot clearer (if required), and most importantly spend valuable time in the kitchen to create those beautiful cakes!

 

Cake Tasting:

Sampling cake is one of the most exciting parts of ordering your wedding cake! Currently, my forever-hectic workload means I am unable to hold one-on-one consultations but do not worry - I am able to bake and post sample boxes straight to your door!

 

In the comfort of your own home, you can taste test 3, 4 or 5 flavours from the cake menu to see which ones make the final cut.

 

I do charge for sample boxes however if you go ahead and place your wedding cake with me the cost of your box will be deducted from your total order cost.

Box of 3 flavours = start from £13

Box of 4 flavours = start from £14

Box of 5 flavours = start from £15

 

Payment Process:

Once we have finalised all the design details I will provide you with your final quotation. When you are happy to proceed I will complete your order form and email a copy for you to double-check that all details are correct. From the date you receive this you will have 3 days to make payment of your 50% non-refundable deposit which will secure your date and order in my diary. Payment is accepted by bank transfer (plus PayPal & credit card at a small additional charge) and the balance of your order will be due 14 working days prior to your wedding day. Please note that if your deposit is not received within these 3 days your date will be made available to other customers and you may lose your slot.

Once your deposit has been received your date will be unavailable to other customers and you will be emailed a receipt for your records.

 

The Big Day!

Due to the delicate nature of wedding cakes, many couples choose my full delivery and set-up service. Prices for this service vary depending on the location of your venue, the distance covered and any assembly or decoration required once at the venue. If you would like a quote please get in touch with your venue name and postcode.

 

I will liaise with you and your wedding coordinator directly to arrange a suitable time for delivery in the lead up to your wedding day, however, you may also arrange to collect your cake if preferred.
