How to order your wedding cake
So, the date of your wedding is set and the venue is booked! Now comes the cake!
Here are the steps to ordering your cake with A Cake Story:
The conceptualisation and design process
This is the most important step in the process!
Managing expectations and ensuring wishes are thoroughly understood is paramount to me!
To ensure a streamlined process, a face-to-face cake consultation is highly recommended.
The cost of the cake consultation costs 75.- for two persons.
Should you choose to book your wedding cake with A Cake Story, the cost of the cake consultation will be deducted from your final costs.
During the consultation we will taste from the selection of cake flavours, discuss colour palettes and design components. To close, we will cover the technicalities of delivery to the actually cutting of the cake. We will leave no stone un-turned!
Wedding Planners & Preferred Partners
Experience has proven time and time again that a wedding planner is best way to plan a wedding!
You wouldn't embark on an Mergers and Acquisitions without consultants? Therefore it is highly recommended and encouraged to use a wedding planner for your wedding.
There is no consultation charge for certified wedding planners who join the cake tasting.
Special discounts for clients who book other wedding services such as photography, floral etc. with these preferred partners.
Once we have finalised design details, I will provide you with a quote. Quotes are valid for 28 days and are secured once the deposit has been received. When you are ready to proceed and have accepted the quote electronically, you will receive an invoice detailing total cost minus any deposit paid and the cake consultation fees. You will also receive my terms and conditions of sale which are to be signed and sent back to me.
To be efficient and environmentally friendly you will receive all the aforementioned electronically.
Payment is accepted by credit card, pay-pal or bank transfer. The balance of your order becomes due 28 days prior to your wedding day.
Wedding cakes are extremely fragile and come with a host of logistical requirements in terms of storing, transport and set up. Because I pour so much of heart and soul into your cake, my wedding cake services include full delivery and set-up at your venue. I liaise directly with your wedding coordinator and/or the banquet managers at your venue to ensure this process runs smoothly. You do not have to worry about anything on your special day (at least when it comes to the cake!)
Boutique style wedding cake service. (aka: Secure your date!)
A Cake Story wedding cakes take on a boutique style element. In the strictest sense of the word, boutique means one-of-a-kind. In addition to bespoke style wedding cakes, I do not just sell you a wedding cake, but wedding cake service. This means that everything from the design process to the delivery and set up is part of my wedding cake service. My goal is that you get a unique piece of art that adds to the beauty and magic of your special day. Quality is more important to me than quantity.
Therefore I highly recommend you reserve your date as soon as is possible. A 150.- non-refundable deposit is required to fully secure your date.
