Your Cake

Wedding Cakes no longer follow a "tradition" or style, your wedding cake can be whatever you want it to be. It is about your day and you as a couple.

Whether you want something that is bold and colourful or soft and neutral, detailed or minimal. I will work with you to create something that is perfect, working with you at each step to ensure your wedding cake is everything you dream of and more. A true centre piece and work of art for you and your guests to see and indulge.

Delivery and set up price is included in a wedding cake quote within 35 miles of Manningtree.

Get in Touch

 

Once you have booked your venue and have set your date I recommend getting in touch. It is only myself who is the baker, decorator, designer and all that comes with planning your cake, this means that I am only able to take on a limited number of your beautiful wedding cakes a week, I always have high standards when it comes to your cake and to achieve this I limit myself to 1 or 2 cakes a week.

If you love my cakes and style and would love me to make you your dream wedding cake, I take a £50 non- refundable booking fee, this secures your date with me. Even if you aren't sure on  what you want we can discuss this at a later date.

Consultation

 

Once you have booked, I offer a complimentary consultation at a time to suit you. This is held at my home in my allocated cake room in Manningtree, it is a perfect informal way for you to chat all about your wedding vision and dream wedding cake. I will work with you to come up with a design or a selection of designs for your dream wedding cake.

I also have various designs on display in various sizes, this is a great way for you to get an idea of size and scale.

If you are unable to make it to my Location for a consultation, I now offer them via video calling, I will be sat in my normal consultation position and you will be able to see my display cakes too.

Any inspiration you have from invites to wedding dress details or photos, please bring it with you.

Once we have discussed ideas and designs I will draw them up by hand for you to be able to see visually, I will also work out your quote. I will get this to you within 7 days of your consultation

Cake Tasting

 

Cake tasting, this is definitely one of the best parts of wedding cake booking.

You can choose to taste my flavours before you book for £20 (excl. postage) or if you have already booked then they are complimentary (minimum order £300). If you choose to try them first and decide to book with me then the £20 is deducted from your wedding cake total (minimum order £300).

I offer my samples on set days, the boxes include a set 6 flavours, there will be a few variations for you to choose from and will also include a delicious favour treat for you to enjoy.

 

 

  • All prices include the setup and delivery of your cake at your wedding venue within 35 miles of Lawford. Delivery can be made outside of this area however, this will be charged per mile for the return journey. 

  • Each wedding couple have their own online portal this will include your design, invoices, order form and any photos or inspiration. Your order form will be emailed so you can confirm what has been written down is correct, this is what I use to know what flavours, sizes and other details are required for your cake.

 

  • Your final payment is due 4 weeks before your wedding Day.

  • Stands are available to hire for £10. Your retainer fee is refunded once the stand is returned in perfect conditions.

  • Quotes are valid for 4 weeks from initial enquiry, after then it will be classed as a new enquiry.

"We chose Charlotte to make our wedding cake after ordering the sample box, after tasting all the different flavours we knew she was the one to make our cake as all of the flavours were to die for!!! We had a 3 tiered butter cream cake decorated with fresh flowers, and we chose cookies and cream, cherry and almond bakewell, and lemon. It looked absolutely stunning exactly how I imagined, and the cake tasted out of this world. Many of our wedding guests have asked me who made the cake as it was so delicious. Charlotte was very professional and so easy to work with, i will definitely be back for more cake in the future !! 5 stars from start to finish. Thank you very much Charlotte,"
