You may have noticed that we host regular wedding cake tastings and consultations. What happens at a consultation? Why do you need one? We try and help answer some of these questions here.
Why do I need a wedding cake consultation?
For most people, the wedding cake is the centrepiece of their wedding reception. Everyone loves the joy of cutting into the cake (it’s extra fun if you have a rainbow cake inside!)
Check out our blog on the tradition of wedding cakes.
It’s important to taste and check that the cake you buy has the flavours and texture that you and your guests will enjoy. Plus, you get the chance to try new flavours that you might not have thought of.
What happens on a cake consultation?
You arrive at our bakery and we will show you to our consultation room where we have some samples of our cakes on display and an inspiration wall.
First, we talk through some basic details to get to understand you and your wedding, including:
- The date
- The venue
- The number of guests
- Your theme and colours
We then discuss what you would like your cake or cupcakes to look like. If you have any inspiration from Pinterest or our wedding cake gallery, bring those with you. Remember we don’t like to copy cakes as we give them our own unique touch and character.
We spend some time with you designing the cake including the size, number and shape of the tiers. Plus, the colours and the details of the cake including quilting, flowers, superheroes and more!
The tasting (the best bit!)
Then comes the fun part, we bring you a selection of our favourite and most popular flavours to taste! If there’s a particular flavour you want to try, let us know in advance and we can prepare a sample for you.
There’s no pressure from us to book your cake there and then, but we do have limited availability, so to secure your date, all we ask is for a £100 deposit (or the full amount) and then the balance will be due a month before your wedding.
And that’s it – simple!
If you’re getting married soon and want to book on our latest session, check out our page on Eventbrite for more details.
If you want to book a private consultation, we charge £15, but this is taken off the cost of your cake when you book – contact us today to arrange.
