5 Important Things to ask your Wedding Cake Maker

Here are some of the questions that I get asked the most when couples are thinking about a cake for their wedding

Do you deliver?

If I’m your cake maker then – Absolutely! It’s all part of my service! Funnily enough, people seem to be quite busy on their wedding day, you know – hair, make up, dresses…………leave the cake delivery and set up to the expert (that’s me!) 

What size cake will we need?

This will depend on a couple of  things – main ones being: the number of guests you are expecting, and whether you are having the cake as dessert, part of a buffet or with coffee after the meal.

How far in advance do we need to book?

For me, I like to give my full attention to a couple’s special cake, so once a date has been booked, it’s booked – some couples book 18 months plus in advance. Even if you haven’t thought about your design, a deposit will save the date for you and we can work out your showstopper cake closer to the big day. My online availability calendar is always kept up to date. 

Can we have different flavours for my tiers?

Of course! If you choose me to create your showstopper cake, you can have whatever you like!! Most of my couples opt for a different flavour per tier, this gives your guests a variety of delicious choices. 

How much will our cake cost?

Really tricky to answer this one, price will depend on the size of your cake and the style of decorations required. A 2 tier cake with an elegant fresh flower posy for an intimate wedding will obviously have a different price to a 5 tier cake with a cascade of handmade sugar flowers. On average, my wedding cakes in 2023 are £425
