Four step wedding cake design process

I provide a bespoke professional wedding cake service to ensure together we create the perfect cake for your wedding day.

There is lots to navigate planning a wedding so below you will find an outline of my simple 4 step wedding cake design process - from initial enquiry through to delivery on your wedding day.


Check availability of your wedding date

Once you have secured wedding venue please get in touch to see if your wedding date is available.

I only book a limited number of wedding each month and recommend you book your wedding cake at least 9-12 months prior to your wedding date.

Initial quote & wedding cake tasting

If your date is available I will ask for a bit more information about your wedding cake and design preferences and at this point I can provide you with an estimate quote. 

If you are happy to proceed with me as your cake designer I ask for a £100 deposit to secure your wedding date in my diary. 

I will then send you a complimentary wedding cake tasting box which are posted several times a year.  

My tasting box includes 5 pre-chosen delicious flavours and some signature macarons. 

You are also welcome to purchase one of our tasting boxes online before you commit to a booking at the price of £35. Please see link below for our next postal date. 


Wedding cake design

We will also schedule a time for a zoom consultation to discuss in detail design ideas, cake size, flavours as well as a few details of your day. 

Following this I will then begin to work on your detailed proposal. This will include a designing your cake, delivery arrangements, liaison with suppliers and a final price.

You will also receive a detailed digital sketch of your wedding cake design for you to approve (one amendment is included in this service). This sketch is also a perfect keepsake for your future!

Final wedding cake details

Around 6 weeks before your wedding date I will be in touch to confirm all the details with you. 

At this point the balance of your wedding cake will be due which you will receive as an invoice. This will include the deduction of your deposit.

Several weeks before your wedding I will contact your Sussex or Surrey based wedding venue to arrange delivery times. I will also liaise with your florist, should you be using florals, to ensure they are at the venue on the day for me to dress the cake with.

We want to thank Erin very much for creating our beautiful and very tasteful wedding cake. We were so looking forward to our cake and it did not disappoint! From the time we went for cake tasting, we knew Erin would be the person to create our dream cake and she did. She is easily my favourite cake maker!
