Early enquiries are definitely advisable.

This is a rough guide for wedding cakes based on 1inch slices per person. Your venue catering manager will be able to ensure portions are cut to the correct size.
|4||10 portions||15 portions|
So, a 2 tiered round cake for example comprising of an 8 & a 10 inch tier, would cater for approx 100 people.
*Based on standard 4 inch deep tiers.

Consultations - Weddings
This is an exciting part of the process where we talk about all things wedding over a cup of tea and of course with cake! There are 3 options available for you to choose from, just drop me a line to let me know which suits you best:
1. Save the date.
This is the most popular option with couples, especially if we have met at a wedding fair and you have had the opportunity to sample some cake.
Once you have your venue booked it's really advisable to get in touch to check availability. Dates get booked up quickly as I only take on so many commissions each month, ensuring each cake gets the attention it deserves. Even if you don't quite know what you want, let's get your date booked in so that you have piece of mind that the date has been secured. We can then arrange a tasting consultation and take our time working together on creating a stunning design.
A non refundable deposit of £125 will secure your booking. Your balance will be due 4 weeks* before delivery/collection. This amount will be deducted from the balance due.
2. Face to face consultation.
Consultations are held in my small purpose built studio in Feering, Essex, where you can see some cake designs close up and personal. We chat about all aspects of your wedding while you and flick through my wedding cake portfolio and enjoy the cake that has been freshly baked for you.
3. Cake Mail!
There are lots of reasons why it may not be possible or convenient for you to meet face to face and that's no problem at all.
I offer a Cake Mail service, sending a cake tasting box straight to you at home so that you can take your time and enjoy the flavours you have chosen. We can then discuss the finer detail of your cake design over email, WhatsApp, Skype or good old fashioned telephone.
Whether you choose a face to face consultation or the cake mail service, the price is £20 payable at the time of booking the service*. This amount will be deducted from your final wedding cake order balance if you then decide to book your cake with me.
Following the consultation or cake mail, if you decide you would like to book, a non refundable deposit of £125 will secure your booking. Your balance will be due 4 weeks* before delivery/collection. This amount will be deducted from the balance due. A bespoke design sketch will then be sent to you for your approval.
PLEASE NOTE: If you choose to Save the Date there is no need to pay the additional £20 as you will have already paid £125 towards your cake
All my creations are made to order with the freshest ingredients – local and organic if possible . My kitchen is not nut free kitchen but if you have any special dietary requirements, I would be happy to try and accommodate if I can.
*You will be able to try 3 flavours of your choice. Additional taster samples after the consultations are chargeable & will be posted.
You can pay for your Face to Face Consultation/Cake Mail here.
I recommend leaving the delivery and set up of your wedding cake to me. This will give you one less thing to worry about so you can concentrate on enjoying getting ready on your very special day.
You are of course welcome to collect your boxed cake but please note that once the cake has left the boutique, we cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur.
Local delivery (i.e. Braintree and surrounding area) is free of charge. Please get in touch for a quote for delivery to other areas.
*there will be an additional £30 charge for bank holiday deliveries. Celebration cakes are on a collection only basis from the Boutique.
Cake Stand Hire
If you need a stand for your display, I can help! I have a selection of beautiful stands which may be hired. A security deposit of £50 per stand will be required which will be refunded upon return of the undamaged stand. Other items can also be hired upon request (display plates, trays...).
I ask that stands are returned within 5 days of the event to ensure you receive your deposit (unless agreed otherwise at the time of hire). Please get in touch for pictures and prices.
