At Velvet Cake Shop, we know that choosing the right wedding cake is just as important as choosing the right dress. Choosing your wedding cake is often one of the most fun and enjoyable experiences in the wedding planning process. We also understand that choosing the right cake can be a daunting task.
Therefore, we offer cake consultations by appointment. This includes a cake tasting where you may choose up to three different cake flavor samples to try. Family and friends are encouraged to join as well for second and sometimes, third opinions.
During the consultation, we will discuss your wedding needs. Some things to consider before your appointment:
What style of wedding are you having?
What colors are you using?
How many guests will be attending?
Will the cake be for toasting the bride and groom at the wedding breakfast or will it be served during the evening reception?
Would you like a separate cutting cake or a top tier to be kept for your 1st wedding anniversary or christening?
What cake flavours would you like, will there be any dietary requirements? – If you are having several tiers you may wish to consider having different flavoured cakes to accommodate all of your guests.
What shape would you like the cake to be?
Would you like the cake stacked, with pillars or on a cake stand or would you like something a little different such as individual mini cakes or cupcakes?
What sort of decorations would you like? Sugar flowers or fresh flowers to compliment the bride’s bouquet; or a bespoke bride and groom topper or cake jewelry?
Will you need to rent a stand?
Will the cake need delivering to the venue and setting up?
Before you come to the consultation, please bring with you any ideas, special items or mementos, photos, fabric swatches, magazines, website photos or flower samples that you would like to incorporate into the wedding.
We will also have a selection of photos for you to look over.
There are many different options that you can choose from, depending on the size of the wedding and your budget.
Once the consultation is finished, you will receive an email with a quote for your event and all applicable delivery or rental fees.
We do offer Naked cakes as an option.
