Now there is just one question that remains: How to book a wedding cake/ Custom cake, or anything else with me. Here are some pointers about the process and timelines
The sooner you book the better. I do need a minimum 2 months lead time however. I am pretty much a one-woman-show, so that means that if a date is booked out, then there is no wiggle room to squeeze in another cake. I often times get booked out for a year or more in advance. Sometimes I have a gap though, so please do just ask, and I will have a look if your date is available. Just send me an email! I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Just send me an email! From there I will check if your date is available, and send you my pricing structure and ordering procedure, as well as my brochure and flavour list. I will ask you a selection of questions that will help me determine a rough estimate for you.
However, usually the details that will help me give a rough estimate will only fall into place later on (e.g. the flavours, the number of guests expected, the design, the flower library, dress design etc). Normally, clients will just book the date that they have set for their event, pay an agreed upon booking fee to secure the date, so no-one else can snatch it away. Then when it is convenient we set up a Tasting and Consultation, my favourite part by far! (you can request the tasting details and cost involved from me via email, I would be happy to send it to you).
Tasting and Consultation:
At the tasting/consultation we can chat about the different flavour options, and chat about the design and your vision for your big day. I love making something special and totally unique for each couple, and I will pull together different elements of your big day into a wonderful centre piece that your guests can admire and enjoy. You obviously get to try some cake! So get ready for that sugar high! Then after the tasting I will send you a formal quote, and then a 50% booking fee would be due to secure your date, unless the date has been booked already, then an updated invoice/ quote will be sent through. Then the only thing left to do is to look forward to your big day, and the centre-piece cake you’ve always dreamt of!
