asliceofheaven_wedding_headerTo help you at this (sometimes stressful!) time, I have compiled a list of helpful tips that will tell you all you need to know about ordering the cake of your dreams for your special day.

Your cake plays a very important role during your wedding day. It will be one of the main focal points for your reception, with many of your pictures centered around it. Therefore, it is important to give your cake a lot of thought. I recommend arranging an initial consultation at least four months prior to your wedding so that we can discuss the following:asliceofheaven_wedding_textIt is also helpful to bring along photo’s of the dress, ribbons, etc. that may help provide me with a clearer view of the style of cake and decorations you may wantasliceofheaven_wedding_gallery_LinkThese questions will help guide you and should answer any queries you may have. If you are still unsure about anything, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

How long before the wedding should I book my cake?

I recommend arranging an initial consultation at least four months prior to your wedding so that we can discuss your needs and go through timings, cost etc.

What if I have my own idea for a design?

This is not a problem. At the initial meeting we can discuss your design and how best to reproduce it.

Can I have fresh flowers on my cake to match my bouquet?

Yes, indeed certain designs lend themselves perfectly to this. I can consult with your florist to ensure the fresh flowers will be suitable for your cake.

Can I mix the flavours of the cakes?

Yes, of course. Once the style of the cake has been chosen, I will advise you on which flavours you can use. For example. a stacked cake can have 12″ fruit, 10″chocolate biscuit, 8″carrot, 6″madeira.

I would like to keep the top tier, is this possible?

Yes, if the top tier is a traditional fruit receipe, then the cake will keep (if stored correctly) for up to one year.

How long will my cake keep after the wedding?

If a tier has not been cut, chocolate will keep for up to 5 days, sponge for 5 – 7 days and fruit for up to one year. However, if a cake has been cut I suggest you eat it quite quickly.

What if I am not local to you and would like to order a cake?

Please call or email to discuss your requirements and location.

Can I book via the internet?

It is usually advisable to arrange a consultation in order to discuss your specific requirements. However, if you have an exact idea of what type of cake you would like, by all means email me the details and I will get back to you regarding timings and price.asliceofheaven_wedding_Cakes
