Your wedding breakfast deserves a focal point - a splendid cake. So it must be planned in every detail. You can use this plan to ensure that your cake will take pride of place.
As soon as the date for your wedding has been set you will need to begin checking out suppliers, asking friends for recommendations, enquiring at local retailers, bakeries, etc. And as soon as possible book a meeting with a specialist. You must bear in mind that the summer months are booked up very early.
At Angel Cake Company we welcome requests for complimentary consultation appointments which will entail some consideration beforehand. You will need to inform your cake designer about the date and venue for your big day; the number of guests; the theme and colour scheme for the flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses (take a fabric swatch with you) etc.; the style of the finished cake, take pictures or magazine illustrations.
At the consultation we will supply samples of the types of cake you may prefer: chocolate, lemon, madeira, traditional fruit cake, to name but a few.
Our designer will work with you to ensure the finished cake will fulfil all your expectations, draw up an estimate of costs and specifications for you to take away for discussion with your family.
When you decide to confirm your booking (at least 3 months or more before the big day) we will ask you to pay a 30% non-refundable deposit to secure our diary date - we only take a maximum of two weddings on a single day. Check the delivery arrangements, and advise us of the contact name at the venue, a returnable deposit cheque for any hired equipment and the person responsible for its return.
If you have requested fresh flowers on the cake, one month before the day ensure the florist has been contacted and the flowers are ordered.
Also at this point you will need to pay the final balance outstanding.
Angel Cake Company will then liaise with your catering contact and take responsibility for ensuring that your cake will be perfectly displayed at the reception venue.
“ There aren't any words to explain how grateful I am for
my 18th birthday cake and how much I loved it.
It's wonderful to know that you would take time
to make such a delicious cake for me. ”
