An Event without Cake is just a meeting.
It is never too early to book your wedding cake. Charlotte recommends booking at least 12 months before your wedding date, especially during busy summer months. With a consultation and design organised between 6-9 months prior.
Charlotte offers sample boxes to potential couples. These are available on Sample days, and there are 4 or 5 dates offered throughout the year. The boxes contain a slice of all Charlotte's 10 flavours as well as a personalised biscuit. If you choose to book, the price of your sample box is deducted from your wedding cake total. Your box will be posted to arrive in time for the weekend and enjoy together or with family and friends.
