Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS on planning to marry the love of your life. How romantic! An exciting time awaits to make it your perfect day.
Organising a wedding can seem a little daunting as there are a few decisions to be made. And, of course, every bride wants nothing more than the best and why shouldn’t you?
There are so many cake design styles to choose from but what have you been dreaming of since you were young, what have you always imagined? Is it classic clean lines, vintage, lots of romantic swirls and detail, blingy sparkle, the ever popular cupcake tower with a small iced cutting cake on top, or is your fun side going to emerge and you want an “off the wall cake”? Your colour and style of dress will be a major factor in choosing your cake. The cake colour will compliment your dress and perhaps you wish to incorporate your bridesmaid colours too in the form of ribbon, piping or flowers.
A few things to think about but worth it to compliment your overall theme can be; will you want a cake topper? I make toppers from polymer clay as well as icing. What shape cake do you like? How would you like your cake displayed? Will you want sugar or fresh flowers on your cake?
Popular flavours are vanilla, chocolate, or lemon sponge and of course the traditional fruitcake. If you want a mixture of flavours, but want a fruit tier , I always advise to have fruit at the bottom as it is more stable. A good idea is to have a consultation to talk through your thoughts and requirements. If you have flavours in mind I will bring samples to help decide. A few things which are important:
To match any colour choices a swatch/swatches must be obtained to ensure the colour match. One person’s ivory is another person’s beige!
I can deliver and set up your cake at your chosen venue. Each cake is bespoke to you. The design will be unique to your wedding theme. All cakes are priced per your requirements. All budgets are considered and we can work together to ensure you have your perfect day. This can be discussed via a consultation or if this not possible by phone or email.
