The Process to designing
your STATEMENT Wedding cake
The Process From Booking To Delivery
There is so much choice nowadays when it comes to designing your wedding cake that it may seem like a daunting task. Long gone are the days of the traditional white wedding cake as more and more couples are pushing the boundaries and opting for something a little bit different.
Whether you’re looking for something that is colourful or neutral, bold or modest, detailed or minimalistic, I will work with you every step of the way to ensure your wedding cake is individually designed to suit your particular style, ultimately creating a centrepiece that is both stunning and delicious.
As soon as you have booked your venue, it is best to get in touch to check my availability.
It is only myself who designs, bakes and decorates all of the cakes at CakeBuds, therefore I am only able to take on one wedding cake order per week to maintain my high standards. As a result, certain dates do get booked up well in advance.
If you love my style, then you can secure your wedding date with CakeBuds by paying a £100 non-refundable booking fee. The design of your wedding cake can be finalised at a later date.
After securing your wedding date, we will arrange a suitable time to meet at a complimentary Signature Tasting Consultation. If you wished to upgrade to a Bespoke Tasting Consultation this can be arranged at an additional cost.
A Tasting Consultation is a great opportunity for us to meet and discuss the design of your wedding cake. So please feel free to bring along any photos, stationary or colour swatches which you would like to use as inspiration.
You will also be able to taste a selection of cake flavours from my menu.
After your consultation, I will send you a selection of cake sketches with accurate prices. We can then finalise the final design of your wedding cake, flavour choices and price via email.
Two months before your wedding day, I will be in touch to confirm your chosen wedding cake design and flavours.
This is when your remaining balance is also due.
I will liaise directly with your wedding venue to arrange delivery and set up of your wedding cake, so all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your wedding day.
If you would prefer to taste my cakes before securing your booking with me,
then we can arrange to meet at one of my Tasting Consultations for a small fee. Alternatively, if you are unable to attend one of these sessions, you can order a Tasting Box instead.
Further information on my Tasting Consultations and Tasting Boxes can be found by clicking the links below. Please note that no booking is secure until a £100 non-refundable booking fee has been paid.
“Liz made our wedding cake – it was amazing… We wanted our cake to look really simple with a vine of flowers and thats exactly what Liz did. Communication with Liz was easy and fab and she was so helpful with all her sketches. Cake tasters in the post has been the best post ever and we’re looking forward to finding another reason to order a cake now. Thank you so much x“

“What a cake! Liz created the most beautiful wedding cake for our winter wedding. She really listened to our thoughts when we first met and designed a really unique cake with so much texture and a look that really felt like us. Not to mention it tasted amazing! The design process to the finished product was so cool to see because she really stayed true to the vision she had. Everyone also said that the cake was simply stunning! Thank you so much – you are incredibly talented!! x“
