I am still conducting wedding consultations, but please note that during current restrictions, consultations are being conducted by phone/Zoom/email only. During your consultation we will arrange a suitable time for you to collect your taste testing samples to enjoy at home.
Wedding Cake Consultations
I know that your wedding day is one of the most important cakes of your life. So I will sit down with you to discuss exactly what you’d like to make your day extra special.
During your wedding cake consultation we take up to an hour to discuss all your ideas and explain the wedding cake process. Please feel welcome to bring any pictures or magazines with you that have inspired your wedding, along with colour swatches, or any other detail that we might tie in to the wedding cake. I can also work with your florist to incorporate matching flowers on your cake.
The consultation is a great opportunity to talk about cake options in terms of size, shape, flavour, serving portions and decoration.
I will prepare up to three delicious mini-cakes in flavours of your choice (no measly slices here - you get to take the whole mini-cake home to share with family and friends!), and they are nicely presented and ready for collection from my house in Keynsham, at a date to be decided during the consultation.
My wedding cake consultations costs £40 per couple and this is payable when you schedule your appointment. After your consultation meeting, I will provide you with a tailored quote based on our discussions. If you place an order with me, 50% of the consultation fee will be deducted from the final cost. Consultations must be scheduled at least 8 weeks before the wedding, and are subject to availability. In the unlikely event that you cancel your consultation with at least 48hs notice, I will offer an alternative date.
When you order a wedding cake with Laura's Kitchen Cakery, it's one less stress for your special occasion. I am a small business with a personal service that aims to be less intimidating than a larger wedding cake shop. I'll work with you to design exactly the cake you've always dreamt of, and then you can leave it with me, worry free.
* Please advise of any food allergies or special dietary requirements when booking your consultation.
Phone or Email Consultation
If you might find it difficult to get to me for a face-to-face consultation, we can arrange your wedding cake design by phone, Zoom, or email. Collect your samples of cake to taste and enjoy at home, then just let me know what your favourite flavours are!
**Please note that during the pandemic, all consultations are being conducted by phone or Zoom only.**
Alternative Wedding Bakes
A twist on customary wedding cakes
Are you after something a little bit different?
Tiered Cupcake Tower
Looking for a way to keep all your guests happy without compromising on quality of flavour or design? Have you considered a cupcake tower instead of a traditional wedding cake?
This is a great way of feeding a variety of flavours to your guests, and makes for a really stunning centrepiece.
I can even add custom touches to personalise your cupcakes.
Get in touch with me to see how I can make your special day even more yummy.
Not such a fan of cake, or just looking for something a bit different? Perhaps tiffin would be a more unusual twist on the traditional wedding cake.
Tiffin is a delectable mix of biscuit, dried fruits, and sumptuous chocolate, with a boozy twist*. My tiffin comes in a range of flavours, from Fudge (made with fudge sauce and Whiskey) to Baileys Liqueur. It is rich and delicious, and can be beautifully displayed on cake stands or in boxes as favours.
Flavours available: Almond Liqueur, Fudge, White chocolate and Ginger, Summer Lemon, Baileys, Earl grey, Cherry and Kirsch, Coffee and Walnut, Cocnut, Rock tiffin, Easter tiffin, Christmas tiffin.
*Alcohol can be omitted by request.
