What Can You Expect At a Cake Consultation?

Undoubtedly one of the best parts of wedding planning is sitting down to talk about your ideas and eat cake. Although you may be excited about this prospect, you may still wonder, “what can I expect at a cake consultation?” I have put together all of the things you can expect from a cake consultation to help put your mind at ease.

What is a cake consultation?

A cake consultation is a meeting between the cake maker, the couple and one or two other people. It will usually start with a discussion about the wedding itself, the couples cake inspiration and a cake tasting. At a cake consultation, you will discuss your ideas and requirements and taste the cakes that will likely be served at your wedding. It is also an opportunity to have any questions answered and get to know your cake maker better. This will help you decide on whether the cake maker is the right one for you.

How do you prepare for a wedding cake tasting?

Before your cake tasting, it would be beneficial to:

  1. Have a date set for your wedding so that you can check availability for your day.
  2. Bring along any saved images, colour swatches and any other inspiration you may have.
  3. Know the number of guests you will be inviting
  4. Venue details and who to contact on the day.

At your cake consultation we will discuss:

  • Wedding venue details e.g. location, name and number of contact at the venue on the wedding day
  • Preferred delivery time of cake (I will liaise directly with the venue).
  • Wedding colours, style of cake and any inspiration you may have in the form of swatches, Pinterest board etc for your cake design.
  • Preferred cake flavours.
  • Pricing 

After the consultation

An email will be sent to you, summarising our conversation. Your cake details will be put into an invoice and you will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit to secure your date if you haven’t already. A digital sketch of your cake design will also be sent to you once your order is confirmed.

I hope this has helped to give you a better understanding of what you can expect at your cake consultation.

To discuss your cake ideas please complete the contact form.

It was a pleasure working with Bianca to create our wedding cake for the day. She took an enormous amount of time and effort to ensure she was delivering exactly what we were looking for. She's extremely professional, kind and overall joy to work with. The cake was immaculately put together and got set up on the day with the utmost care. Bianca ensures that the couple does not have any stress and works directly with the venue/coordinator for delivery and set up. All you need to do is share what you're looking for and Bianca delivers 10/10.
Bianca was amazing, aside from the cake being beautiful and SO delicious, she was an amazing supplier as she just handled everything herself such as communicating with the venue and getting the cake set up there. I had zero organising to do on that front, which trust me when you get to that stage is EXACTLY what you need from a supplier! She was amazing, can't recommend highly enough.

Our experience with Beez cakes was amazing, very friendly and professional. From beginning to end the communication was great, we always felt that Bianca was looking after us. On the day the cake looked incredible, it was beautifully moist & had delicious flavours of chocolate and vanilla. We had lots of compliments about it afterwards. A huge thank you to Bianca and her team, we would recommend them 100%. A&M ❤️
Perfect cake for our wedding, loved the Raspberry and White Chocolate flavour! Bianca was great to work with - so professional and friendly.

Beez Cakes provided our wedding cake in May 2021. The sample cakes were the best we tried, and the cake on the day exceeded expectations. The service provided was brilliant - really responsive and accommodating to our needs, and made for an all-round great experience. Would definitely recommend

Myself and my now husband! wanted to use independent suppliers for our wedding especially during the covid pandemic. When I found Bianca from Beez Cakes I knew she was the cake artist I wanted. Bianca was easy to contact and also sent us some cake samples because we weren’t able to meet face to face. Then we had a phone call and talked about what we wanted and what flavours. When our cake arrived on our special day, it was exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Beez Cakes to everyone looking at getting a cake for any occasion! Thank you Bianca!!!
Had our wedding cake done by Bianca and the it was amazing! She was very friendly and professional. Very impressed with the quality and taste of the cake. Would recommend you purchase a sample box to get an idea of what she offers, and they all taste amazing! Would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants a lovely cake for any occassion! :)
