Yes of course, this is one of the undeniably best bits of planning! After you’ve contacted me, we’ll arrange a consultation at my studio in Buckinghamshire where you can try a selection of mouth-watering flavour combinations and see my work in person. It’s also a brilliant opportunity to bring any details that you’ve already chosen that could inspire the cake design, from the stationery to swatches of fabric. Consultations are complimentary, lasting approximately 1 hour, for up to 4 people.
The earlier the better. Your deposit holds your date, so it’s a good idea to get in touch as soon as possible and we can finalise the details closer to the time if necessary. 3 months is the minimum notice, with 6 months preferable to allow enough time for recipe and design development. As I only take on a handful of commissions, popular dates will get booked up in advance. The best thing is to get in touch to check availability.
The nature of a bespoke service means that every last detail is designed just for you. This includes the price. You’ll receive a full quote following our consultation, but I can usually give you an approximate total once we’ve had a chat and you’ve told me the essential info such as date, number of guests, and style you love. I have a minimum order of £500.
My cake studio is in Buckinghamshire, and I deliver to the surrounding areas of Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, and Hertfordshire. If your venue falls outside of this area, delivery will be charged at 45p a mile.
Absolutely. I can adapt recipes for many dietary needs and dessert tables are a particularly great option because you can have a variety of sweet treats to suit everyone. Please note that as a small studio, I can’t guarantee against traces of nuts, but many of my cakes don’t include them.
Yes, I hand deliver every wedding cake and painstakingly set everything up to ensure it looks its absolute best. My designs often include delicate detailing that just isn’t suitable for collection, so I much prefer to take the responsibility, leaving you to relax on your big day.
I have a beautiful collection of cake stands available to hire which will stylishly display your wedding cake or dessert table. I can advise which ones will work best with your design. A refundable safety deposit is required on all hire items and it is your responsibility to return your items within 3 days of your wedding date, in their original condition.
