One of my favourite parts of the wedding cake timeline is the designing. I love getting the creative juices flowing!
At your wedding cake consultation, we’ll chat about your dream cake. Some couples know exactly what they want their cake to look like. Other couples don’t have a clue! It doesn’t matter though. During our consultation, I’ll ask lots of nosey questions about your big day to draw inspiration for your cake design. We usually get to a rough idea of how it will look by the end of the session, after which I set to work.
Whether it’s a simple semi-naked cake decorated with just a few fresh flowers, or a multi-tiered show-stopping cake, I create bespoke cake designs especially for each of my couples. I never recycle old designs. I may only send you one design if you know exactly what you want, or I may send you four. Sometimes there may be a bit of back and forth to reach your perfect cake - that’s fine!
It takes about a week to send designs after your consultation, during which time I’ll be sketching up ideas and final drafts, and the all important pricing. Each design is carefully calculated taking into account cost of ingredients and materials, and time to create.
I love sketching couples’ cake designs, although I have to admit my sugar skills are far better than my drawing skills (which is good I suppose - your cake will always look better than the design!) With a few years of wedding caking under my belt now, my cake sketches are getting better and better, but just in case, all my designs are annotated to give you the best possible idea of how your cake will look.
