A cake consultation is generally held at my home in Tonbridge, Kent. They involve a detailed discussion of the design, plus tasting some delicious cake, and I will do a sketch of how I envisage your dream wedding cake.
Firstly you will get in touch and we will have a friendly chat about your cake, your ideas and your wedding date. I will be able to give you an idea of what I do and whether I am available and from there, we book in the cake consultation.
The consultations are complementary for two people but you can book a cake taster box as as part of the meeting. This contains generous samples of 5 different flavours so you can really grasp a good idea of what you want for yours. These boxes are £20 refundable against your cake if you book with us. The box can be taken away with you to try at your leisure. Please do let me know in advance if you would like to purchase a taster box.
I will email over you a final quotation after the cake consultation, just outlining everything we have discussed.
Once you are ready to book, we require a £50 deposit to secure the date and then we are ready to go.
The final balance is due six weeks before the big day. You cake will be delivered and beautifully set up on location, ready for your arrival.
