To enjoy the planning, for me it's all part of the wedding experience.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love it when couples include those family members into their day that are no longer with us, I've seen beautiful pictures on display at the venue, a sentimental piece of jewellery incorporated into a bouquet, and even a song a father wrote played at a reception.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
As a one-woman business I only take on a limited amount of commissions per week to ensure that I have time to give each and every cake the time and care it deserves. When you initially get in touch I can give you a guide price and make suggestions on the size of cake required to serve your guest numbers. Your booking is confirmed in my diary after the completion of a booking form alongside a £150 deposit. Once confirmed you will be invited to an exclusive consultation to discuss your wedding cake and try lots of our delicious flavours. From the consultation, I will produce your cake package & your cake design as well as a detailed quote.
1 month before your wedding I will run through the details of your cake to ensure there are no changes and the balance of your cake is then due.
During your wedding week, behind the scenes I liaise with your venue to discuss delivery and any other requests, speak to any other wedding suppliers involved with the cake such as your florist and keep a very careful watch on the weather forecasts as this may affect where a cake is set up and dictate delivery times.
On the day, I personally deliver and set up your cake to ensure it looks perfect and, in the lead up to your wedding I am always available to answer any queries.
