We are very proud of our customer service and our great Wedding Cake Consultaions which lead to giving our customers the Beautiful Wedding Cake perfect for their wedding
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book you wedding cake designer well in advance. A good wedding cake designer will only make a certain amount per weekend, so you are paying your deposit to book the time slot as you would a wedding venue. So contact the Wedding cake designer/maker as soon as you have your venue
Describe your typical process with a couple.
As soon as the couple find their venue they will contact us to see if we have the time slot available. We will then make an appointment for their wedding cake consultation where they will try some fresh made cake samples of their choice. The couple will give me some of their wedding ideas , i.e. colour theme , etc and we will have some cake sketches ready for them to look at. These sketches are the start of the design process.
