Wedding Cake Ordering Process
Once you've chosen your wedding date please contact us to check our availability. Katie our co - owner and specialty cake designer is very detail orientated and to ensure each and every cake receives the attention to detail she only accepts 2-3 specialty cake orders per week. Please contact us so Katie can have an understanding of the requirements for your event.
A lot of people leave their bespoke cake as a last minute errand. However custom cakes adorned with such details requires a good lead time to ensure the whole process goes smoothly. A good recommended lead time is between 3-6 months. Contacting us early will also avoid possible disappointment of us already being booked for your date.
Tastings are $40 per couple, they include 3 choices of cake flavours and a 1hr consult with Katie. This is the time to choose your favourite cake flavour as well as go over all of the details we've discussed or email and create your final design. Please note Katie only takes bookings for cake tastings on Sundays.
You will receive a email after your tasting confirming the design details, flavour choice, and pricing. An order will only be confirmed once the client pays their 50% deposit along with signing the endorsed contact. A payable email invoice will be sent following the confirmation email including the contract.
Katie will assist you in creating your vision for your bespoke cake or dessert table. She will draw from other elements of your special day such as the dress, floral choices, colour scheme, and table settings. It is suggested to send over this inspiration via email in the contact stages of the process to ensure that Katie is prepared for the tasting portion of the process. In which the final design will be determined at the tasting along with your selected flavour.
