WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY CAKE?
We will always do our best to accommodate your cake order, within a reasonable period of time of more than seven days notice.
For wedding cakes, we recommend placing an enquiry three to six months before the wedding date, to allow enough time for the cake design stage.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF ORDERING A CAKE?
We recommend that you make an initial enquiry by email or filling in our online form, giving us your date, delivery location, serving size (coffee or dessert) and design ideas so we can give you a rough price guide. We will happily accept messages on our Facebook page, we ask that you give us some time as we get through messages.
We will send you a reply via email. To confirm your order, a 50% non-refundable should be made payable, with the balance due two weeks and processed into our bank account before the event.
HOW MUCH WILL MY CAKE COST?
The final price will depend on serving numbers and the complexity of details chosen, and each cake is quoted on an individual basis. We have a minimum order of $180. Full quotes are provided after all details and size are discussed and obtained from clients.
CAN I HAVE A DIFFERENT FLAVOUR IN EACH TIER?
Yes! You can have as many flavours as you have tiers. As we layer all our cakes with ganache, you can also choose the filling flavours as well. For dessert servings, we usually recommend a maximum of two flavours so the cake can be easily served as alternate drop.
CAN I TASTE YOUR CAKES?
We do not have a huge demand for it, however occasionally we may post an expression of interest on our social media platforms for tasting cakes.
We offer a box with four different flavours at $25 each.
CAN I HAVE FOAM “DUMMY” TIERS OR A SMALLER CAKE PLUS KITCHEN SLABS TO REDUCE THE PRICE?
For most average sized weddings, it’s just as easy for us to put all your servings into the main cake. Foam is most useful if you love the idea of a really large cake, but only have a modest guest list. As most of the cost is in the decorating, a five tier cake with only three tiers of real cake will still be closer to a five tier cake price than a three tier price.
When considering whether to go for a small cake plus kitchen cake, keep in mind the scale of the wedding and the visual impact you would like from the wedding cake. This option usually reduces costs significantly only for larger events, however a small cake may look out of place at a big wedding.
I HAVE A PHOTO OF A CAKE I WANT, CAN YOU COPY IT?
You may bring in photos of cakes from other designers as part of an inspiration board, however we do not do copies of others’ work. We also ask for others to respect the copyright ownership of our original cake designs.
