WEDDING CAKES ORDERING PROCESS

Julia Child once said, “A party without cake is just a meeting”.

Evidently you agree with her, and here at Kicca Cakes I couldn’t be happier that you have chosen us to help create the cake for your special day.

Without further ado, let’s get to work!

 

My goal is to help bring your vision to life. Designing and selecting your dream cake – from flavours to decorations – is all a part of the creative process (and in my opinion is one of the best parts of planning a wedding!)

 

To get started and to get your creative juices flowing, I recommend heading to my Instagram page or my website, where I regularly post and share images of some of the cakes I have created over the years – from intimate wedding celebration cakes to multiple tiers of different flavours, and so much more.

Stage One…

The process starts with an initial consultation. This is where I will find out more about you as a couple, your wedding day, and what you want your cake to capture. This is where we will discuss ideas you already have cakes you may have seen and personality traits that you want to celebrate with your cake. Trust me, no request is too strange, and no detail is too small. I am here to bring your dream cake to life.

During this stage, I will also need to know the approximate number of guests, and the address of your venue.

I will then send you over an initial quote based on your original ideas and design concepts.

 

Stage Two…

The bit everyone loves. It’s tasting time!

I can either send you samples by post, or you are welcome to collect them from my Cake Studio in Maida Vale, London. The price for a box of four different flavours is £16 + delivery, and you can select your four flavours from my list – available at https://www.kiccacakes.co.uk/flavours

Stage Three…

Time to talk. Once you’ve chosen your flavour and established whether the early quote is within your budget, we will arrange to have a follow-up chat by Zoom or Google. Don’t worry, meeting virtually doesn’t mean you will miss out on any extra cake testers – this part is all about the design and the detail.

 

Stage Four…

It’s quote time. This is where you will receive a full quote for the design and creation of your wedding cake, along with all the details and images created so that you can see your dream cake on paper.

 

Stage Five…

While I want all my couples to take their time when making their final decision – after all, the wedding cake is a big part of your day and it should be just as you want it – I am only able to work with a limited number of clients at a time. What this means for you is that if you want to proceed, you will need to let me know as quickly as possible and secure your cake with a non-refundable deposit.

Final payment will be due one month before your wedding.

 

As the wedding draws closer…

I will be in contact with you fairly regularly in the final weeks before your wedding, sharing final sketches and checking details and decisions, to make sure that what arrives to your venue on the day is exactly what you dreamed of (or better!)

Your cake will be delivered safely and securely and will also be displayed upon delivery. I really do take care of everything – all you need to do is taste, test, and dream BIG.
