Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding!
Organising a wedding may feel a little daunting, but please don't worry I make the process of ordering your dream wedding cake as easy and as stress free as possible, cake shouldn't cause stress, wouldn't you agree!
Firstly I advise that you book your wedding cake as soon as possible, for the more popular dates I'd recommend at least 12 to 18 months before your big day. Don't worry if you have left it a little late, let me know your wedding date and I will check my availability for you.
On initial contact via email, social media or phone please provide the following information so I can give you a guide price for your wedding cake:
Date of wedding
How many guests you want the cake to serve
Plus any images, mood boards and ideas for your cake
Once a rough quote has been given and you are happy to proceed, a 'Save the Date' booking fee of £100 will be required. This is a non-refundable booking retainer fee which ensures your date is booked into my diary.
If you are ordering a fully decorated cake you will be invited for a design consultation. These are held at the beginning and end of each year, you will be offered a choice of dates to attend. You will be welcomed into my home in Cheltenham to enjoy a selection of tasters for the Bride & Groom. Should you wish to bring family or friends with you please let me know in advance.
Should you wish to meet me before paying your 'Save the Date' deposit you are welcome to book a consultation appointment, these are charged at £30 which can be redeemed from your order of £350 or more when the 'Save the Date' deposit is paid within 7 days of the consultation.
*Or if you do not feel you need a consultation, maybe you are having a more rustic cake which doesn't require any design help, but you would prefer to taste Sugar Bowls cakes prior to paying a deposit, then please order a cake sample box which can be collected or posted to you (see price list for details). Taster boxes are made up for couples several times a year (not during peak session). Please ask for the next available date for your tasting box.
8 weeks prior to your wedding, flavour choices will need to be confirmed and an invoice for your final balance will be sent. All balances must be paid 6 weeks prior to your wedding.
All cakes are handmade using the highest quality ingredients. Decorations are all handmade unless stated. The price quoted will reflect the size and complexity of the proposed design. Please get in contact for your bespoke quote.
*Please note that your date will not be secured in my diary until a 'Save the Date' deposit is paid. This still remains the case even if you have booked a consultation or tasting box and are awaiting this service. Should your date become fully booked and you haven't yet received your consultation or taster box a refund will be issued. If however you have received your consultation or tasting box, no refund for these services will be given.
