Your Wedding Cake Questions Answered....
What is a luxury wedding cake designer?
You will have no doubt come across many businesses in the wedding industry claiming to be a luxury business and this can be interpreted in various ways. For me, being a luxury wedding cake designer is not about being over the top, exuberant or lavish, it's about the finer details....it's the perfect finish on your wedding cake, the peace of mind from knowing you have booked a reliable company with a wealth of experience and knowledge so they can curate your dream wedding cake design with ease, it's having mastered the art of creating ultra realistic sugar flowers that will amaze your guests, it's never having to worry if you will turn up to a disaster on your wedding day because you know everything is perfectly in hand, it's about using the finest ingredients because you deserve the very best. Lets not forget the unrivalled level of service either, this is just as important as having a beautiful cake and from 2022 I am taking very limited bookings to allow me to work exclusively on one wedding cake each week - this means your very important wedding cake gets my full attention, it will never be rushed!
How far in advance should be book?
As soon as possible! As I take on a limited amount of bookings my diary does fill quite quickly. Please contact us to check availability.
How many wedding cakes do you do each week?
From 2022 I will be doing a maximum of just one wedding cake per week. For me to be able to offer a truly luxury service I believe it is imperative to work exclusively on one wedding cake only per week. I do my absolute best work if concentrating solely on one wedding cake, you and your cake will have my fullest attention.
Ingredients don't cost as much as that, surely?
No, that's very true! You are paying for a one of a kind, bespoke item for the most important day of your lives - if you are booking a luxury wedding cake designer then your cake has been expertly baked from scratch using the finest ingredients by someone with first class baking and decorating skills. The biggest cost in a wedding cake is actually paying for someone's time and expertise and this is where costs will vary between wedding cake designers....expect to pay more for a luxury cake designer with a considerable level of skill and particularly if they have won awards. My pricing is higher than most to reflect my superior quality and extensive experience; I have trained with some of the worlds best sugar florists and most influential cake designers, I have fine tuned my skills through years of practice, I have won multiple awards and been featured in dozens of wedding blogs and magazines, not to mention my exclusive level of service ensuring your wedding cake is exceptional in every way.
Can we have a different flavour in each tier?
Absolutely, choosing your cake flavours is one of the most enjoyable parts and giving your guests more choice means there will always be something there to suit everyone.
Do you deliver and set up the wedding cake?
Yes, all wedding cakes are delivered to your venue on the day of the wedding. I do not allow collection of any wedding cakes. Imagine your cake is collected by someone who doesn't have experience in transporting, carrying and setting up a wedding cake - it could easily end in tears. It is far safer to have a professional cake designer to take care of this for you. You can then relax on your wedding day knowing your cake will be waiting for you exactly as you intended.
Can you copy this cake for me?
I would prefer to make something entirely unique for you as a couple, something that best represents your style and personalities and that has been carefully designed to fit in with your wedding day. Also, the person who can best recreate a particular design will be the original cake maker. However, I often encourage couples to save ideas if they have seen any particular elements or styling from a cake they have fallen in love with so we can use this as inspiration towards creating their own bespoke design.
Do you hire cake stands?
Yes, I have a large selection of cake stands that can be hired for £15. If your wedding cake is being delivered to Worksop, Nottingham, Sheffield, Chesterfield Derbyshire or surrounding areas within East Midlands or Yorkshire I can set up your cake on one of our cake stands. I would just ask the stand is returned to me in Worksop within 5 days. I can also offer hire on larger floral hoop stands or plinths. Wedding venues will often have flat silver stands to hire or may even include one as part of your package....however, they may not always be in the best condition or complement a more modern cake design. Using a pedestal cake stand gives extra height and adds elegance. I can work with your wedding planner, stylist and florist to make sure the cake area is styled beautifully to create a stunning centrepiece for your wedding day.
