Your Cake Experience
Stage 1 - Initial Enquiry
You’re engaged – huge congratulations! Once you’ve confirmed your venue and wedding date, get in touch here to start your cake journey. To get the feel of your wedding style and ensure I’m the best cake designer for you, I'll send over a mini questionnaire. Upon return of the questionnaire, I’ll confirm my availability and give you a guide price.
Stage 2 - Save Your Date
To secure your date, I ask for a £100 non-refundable booking fee, which also includes an online consultation and a box of cake samples, delivered by post or in person in a Norwich venue*. This deposit will be taken off the final invoice.
Stage 3 - Design Consultation
These are usually held within one year of the wedding date, either online or in a central Norwich venue*. You’ll get to choose the four flavour samples you’d like to try the most from my signature menu, and tell me all about your exciting plans!
It really helps me to get a feel for your personal style direction and design ethos, so there’s no such thing as too much information. I am always inspired by a variety of sources, so feel free to bring any decoration ideas, venue details, colour swatches, stationery samples or inspirational images, be they from the world of painting, sculpture, architecture, interiors, nature, ceramics, stonework, fashion, or elsewhere.
As well as the design of the cake, we’ll also discuss the finer details of the set-up and styling of the cake display in your venue. Afterwards, I will send over some design sketches along with a detailed quote.
(*I can travel to meet you in other areas, travel costs will be applied.)
Stage 4 - The Booking
Upon confirmation of your design, I’ll send an invoice for 50% of the total cost (minus the £100 booking fee). And once this is settled, you can sit back and relax, knowing that your dream artistic cake is on its way to becoming a reality.
Stage 5 - Final Prep
Six weeks before your wedding I’ll get in touch to confirm the final details, including any alterations you may have made since the consultation. Your final balance invoice will be sent, and at this stage the cake design and flavours cannot be changed.
I’ll also liaise with your venue contact and florist (if fresh flowers are to be used on your cake), so you can take them off your to-do list and have one less thing to worry about.
Stage 6 - The Big Day
It’s here! At the agreed time I’ll arrive at your venue and set up your cake, including any styling of the cake display as needed.
All you need to do is enjoy your wonderful wedding day: soak up every second, party in style, and celebrate you.
