Get in touch – Send an email, call for a chat or fill out the contact form. Let me know all the important details: date, venue, number of guests and an idea of what you’re looking for. You can send any pictures or links you’ve collected from Pinterest/Google etc. so I can get a feel for the style of your wedding and the type of cake you’re looking for. All the cakes are created from scratch so they’re completely unique to each couple, but it helps to have a little inspiration to get us started…
Next is a more in-depth chat in person where we can discuss your ideas and inspirations for your wedding in detail. You’ll also be able to try some of our delicious cake, alongside a nice cup of tea. I’ll ask you lots of questions, discussing everything regarding serving sizes, shapes, colours, style, design, themes etc. I can also advise you on things like dummy tiers to make your cake bigger without extra servings, or cutting cakes to accommodate large parties. At the end of the chat I’ll know exactly what you’re after and we’ll have designed the perfect cake for your wedding day.
Once I’m confident of your design I’ll send a formal quote by email, summarising everything we discussed. If you’re happy with it I’ll send you a contract containing all the important details – bookings require a 50% deposit to confirm, with the balance to be paid one month prior to the wedding day.
After I receive the deposit, the real fun begins! I’ll send you a unique full colour sketch based on everything we discussed. High quality sketching is something I take great pride in and is a key part of my design process. Your sketch will give you a very good idea how the cake will look when completed and also allows you to request small changes as needed, such as adding ribbons/decorations or altering flower colours. It also means you’ll have something pretty and colourful to show friends and family. At this stage I may request that you post me a colour swatch of ribbons, dresses, invitations etc. so I can be sure to match your colours correctly.
Now it’s down to me — you can relax knowing that your cake is in expert hands. I’ll take care of everything – delivery, scheduling with the venue/event planner and setting up the cake or dessert table on the day – I’ll even fix the wobbly cake table! You won’t need to worry about a thing as I’ve got it covered… just enjoy your cake and have a wonderful wedding day!
