Artisan Cakes and Confections
How to Order
We’d love to get to know you, hear all about your wedding plans and your love story, what your hopes and dreams are for your special day.
Your wedding cake is as unique as you are and will be designed just for you – reflecting your colours, themes, the venue and décor or your flowers, for example.
Ready to order?
Once you’ve confirmed a date and venue for your wedding, please get in touch using the contact form to check availability for your date.
Only a limited number of commissions are accepted each month so that we can give your wedding cake the attention required. Early booking is recommended to secure your date in our diary.
Let’s Chat and Confirm your Date
Once our availability is confirmed for your date, we’ll be in touch via email, normally within 48 hours.
We can talk through your initial ideas, cake size, style and theme and venue and an estimated quote will be provided based on your requirements, including delivery and set-up. Our wedding cake price guide will also give you an indication of our price range.
A non-refundable deposit of £200 for Elegance Artisan, £350 for Enchanted Artisan and £1000 for Exquisite Artisan is required to secure your date. Dates can’t be held without a deposit and we work on a first come first served basis.
Please don’t worry if you’re a little unsure about all the design details at this point, as most couples want to secure their booking long before they have finalised their wedding cake design.
Cake Tasting and Consultation
This is one of the best bits and most eagerly anticipated by couples!
Following your confirmed booking you will receive a luxury cake tasting experience, contained in a beautiful presentation box. These are prepared on set dates during the less busy months of November and then January to March each year.
They will be posted for next day delivery (to mainland UK), just choose the month you’d like to receive your box.
Cake tasting boxes, containing a selection of popular flavours are also available to purchase separately for £40 if you would like an additional box or prefer to have a box prior to booking. Postage and packing costs will be added or collection from my studio can be arranged if more convenient.
Your consultation will take place via email, telephone and zoom if required. If you’ve chosen a cake from the Exquisite Artisan range, you’ll also be invited to a champagne cake tasting at my studio for two people. A sketch of your cake will be provided following your consultation.
On your wedding day, I will set up your wedding cake at your chosen venue. This is usually in the morning but may vary depending on the time of your wedding and the type of cake you’ve chosen. We will liaise with your venue, florist, wedding planner or photographer, as required. We have a selection of beautiful cake stands available for hire, to really set your cake off in style!
We recommend our cake stands for your cake as not all cake stands can hold the weight of a wedding cake. Wedding cakes are extremely heavy and can often weigh more than 7kg for example!
There is an additional charge for set-up and hire of stands which will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Cutting of the Cake and Celebrations
The cutting of the cake is a very special, poignant moment with many couples choosing to cut their cake just before their first dance to kick off the evening’s celebrations with all their guests. Others choose to cut their cake early and serve with canapes whilst photographs are being taken. Whatever time you choose to cut your cake, rest assured it’ll be there ready for you.
