How to book
A little few helpful notes on how to prepare to book.
- First try and find out what style you would like. Either fondant covered which is really smooth rolled out icing or ganache covered , fairly smooth but it does have a textured finish like buttercream, made with white chocolate and cream so its as delicious as it sounds. Screen shots of ideas are perfect for creating a mood board. ( please remember I DO NOT copy other cake makers designs however they are useful for visual inspiration )
- Take into account , your colour scheme / the venue your hiring and the theme , so elegant or rustic.
- Cake stands and table dressing – does your venue have a cake stand ? if so ask to see it , check it will fit with your design and colour scheme, we do hire out a few stands so your welcome to ask about these.
How to book , scroll down to see our starting prices and flavour lists , submit an enquiry form , don’t worry its not all set in stone until we have mutually agreed size and design, you secure your order with a £50 non refundable retainer , this saves your date. If you know you want us to create your cake but your unsure on design and size , your more than welcome to still save your date with us while you gather your inspiration , it means its another tick on your list and you don’t need to stress about finding a cake maker.
