Wedding Cake Check List.

DON'T LEAVE YOUR CAKE UNTIL THE LAST MOMENT, PLAN AHEAD...
In order to benefit fully from your consultation we recommend you give some thought to potential areas for discussion.
It may help to print this page to focus your design ideas.
It can also be useful to make a mood board or Pintrest list to help you collect ideas about styles, themes and colours.

  1. Number of wedding guests.
  2. Nature of service – to be served as dessert, or as a token taster.
  3. The traditional saving of the top layer (rich fruit cake) or need for an extra cutting cake.
  4. The flavour of the cakes. A combination of types is always an option.
  5. The colour scheme of the wedding – the bridal bouquet, bridesmaids’ dresses, bunting, buttonholes, etc.
  6. The character or theme of the wedding – Traditional, Classic, Modern, Country Garden, etc.
  7. The cake shape & arrangement: Separate, American Stacked, sculpted, Mini-Cakes or Cup Cakes.
  8. Gift cakes, special dietary required mini cake & numbers of wedding favours/biscuits etc.
  9. Wedding venue & time – reception venue & time.
  10. Contact details of the wedding organiser & caterer.
  11. Contact details of your florist.
  12. Contact details of your photographer.

If you don’t know what you want or where to begin we can guide you through and pin down your desires.

Wedding Cake Price Guide.

As every cake we design is tailored to your personal requirements, prices vary and therefore a consultation is the only way to give you an accurate quote.

However, as a general guide to give you an idea of starting prices, please see below:

  • Two tier cake from £275
  • Three tier cake from £450
  • Mini cakes from £10 each
  • Cup cakes from £2 each

Wedding Cake Portion Guide.

Fruit cake is normally served in smaller portions as it is very rich and denser than sponge.

Finger pieces are approximately 1″ X 2.5″ and dessert portions are approximately double this size. The number of portions is only a rough guide and will depend on who is cutting up your cake, how generous you wish to be and how hungry your guests are. Be guided by your design consultant if you are in any doubt.
