FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY CAKE Ideally,   as   soon   as   you   know   the   date   of   your   wedding   or   celebration,   that   is   when   you   should   book   your   cake   designer.      It   is   never   too early!   The   majority   of   my   wedding   cakes   are   booked   1-2   years   in   advance.      With   this   being   said   I   do   sometimes   have   availability   right   up   to the event date.  All booking are taken according to my own availability. Contact me as soon as you can to secure your booking. DELIVERY AND SETUP Yes   I   do   deliver.      For   all   wedding   cakes   the   delivery   and   setup   fee   is   included   in   the   cost   of   your   wedding   cake.      For   celebration   cakes,   if delivery   is   required,   then   there   will   be   an   extra   charge.   Please   state   that   delivery   is   required   at   the   time   of   booking.      As   with   all   cakes,   if   you choose   to   pickup   the   cake,   then   the   sole   responsibility   of   the   cake   lies   with   you   once   you   pick   it   up   and   it   leaves   my   premises.   Any   damage caused to the cake in transit and beyond, is your responsibility.  INGREDIENTS & ALLERGENS All   ingredients   and   allergens   are   supplied   once   your   booking   is   confirmed.      On   the   day   of   delivery/pickup   of   your   cake,   this   list   is   again supplied with the cake in case the ingredients or allergens have changed since the time of booking.  I   do   have   a   number   of   flavours   that   I   can   bake   dairy   free   and   gluten   free.   However,   all   of   my   cakes   are   baked   in   the   same   tins   as   my   normal recipes,   and   my   kitchen   also   handles   all   allergens   listed   below.      Only   you   know   the   severity   of   your   own   intolerance/allergy   and   if   you   are   in anyway   doubtful,   then   you   should   not   consume   any   of   my   cakes.      As   per   HACCP   guidelines,   for   cakes   to   be   completely   free   of   allergens   for gluten,   dairy   and   nuts   etc,   cakes   need   to   be   baked   and   prepared   in   an   specially   controlled   environment   that   is   free   of   these   triggers.      If   you are   a   celiac,   for   example,   you   should   contact   a   specialist   gluten   free   baker   that   bakes   in   an   allergy   free   environment.       All   of   my   cakes   are produced   in   a   kitchen   that   handles   the   following   allergens       Cereals   containing   gluten   |   Eggs   |   Peanuts   |   Rice   |   Nuts   |   Celery   |   Mustard | Sesame WILL I DECORATE A CAKE YOU BAKED OR BOUGHT? Unfortunately not. I will only decorate a cake that I have baked myself WHAT SIZE CAKE SHOULD I ORDER? It   is   of   course   best   to   order   a   cake   for   the   number   of   guests   that   you   are   expecting   at   your   event.      You   should   cater   for   minimum   90%   of your   guests.      I   have   attached   a   document   for   you   to   download   to   work   out   what   is   best   for   your   guest   numbers   with   sample   cutting   guides.     All cakes are a minimum of 5” tall. Sample cutting guide   |   Suggested tiered cake sizes WEDDING CAKE CONSULTATIONS A   wedding   cake   consultation   is   a   very   important   part   of   the   decision   process   for   your   wedding   cake.         Before   the   consultation   it   is important   for   me   to   check   my   availability   against   your   event   date.      To   prepare   for   your   consultation   it   is   best   to   have   an   idea   of   what   your likes and dislikes are regarding cake design.  For your own information, I do not do naked cakes or individual mini cakes. The   consultation   lasts   about   45   minutes.      We   will   go   through   different   designs   and   you   will   also   get   to   sample   6   different   cake   flavours   -   of which you will be able to take home with you.  I will then price up your agreed cake design for you. Consultations   are   free   and   take   place   at   the   Love   Weddings   Studio   in   Belfast.      All   appointments   must   be   prebooked.      Appointment   times book   up   fast   when   available.      These   will   be   published   on   Facebook,   my   website   and   also   emailed   out   to   those   that   are   on   my   mailing   list. Do check your junk mail in case you miss it! HOW MUCH WILL MY CAKE COST All   cakes   are   priced   up   according   to   how   you   want   it   decorated.   Both   celebration   and   wedding   cakes   start   at   £60.      The   single   smallest   cake that is available is a 6”, however I do offer a 4” cake as part of a tiered cake.   A 3-tier wedding cake starts at £170. Some   flavours   of   cake   also   add   to   the   value   of   the   cost   of   cake   -   fruit   cake,   the   Guinness   chocolate   cake   and   the   Ferrero   Rocher   cake. These are £10 extra per tier. For   wedding   cakes,   the   cost   of   delivery   and   setup   is   included   in   the   cost   of   your   cake   and   the   fee   is   calculated   in   accordance   by   the distance from my house to your venue. Prices start at £25 per figure or per single large flower. Do   expect   that   the   cost   of   your   cake   will   reflect   the   personalised   service   required   to   create   your   bepsoke   and   customised   cake.      I   do   not have   a   production   line.      It   is   just   me   and   me   alone.   I   design,   make,   bake,   decorate   and   hand   deliver   each   and   every   cake.      I   make   all   of   the sugar   flowers   and   figures   myself.            All   ingredients   used   in   your   cake   are   bought   and   baked   fresh   the   same   week   as   your   event!      No   cake   is EVER   bought   in,   made   from   a   packet   or   a   box   and   nothing   is   ever   frozen.      This   is   an   individual   service   to   YOU!   It   is   a   custom   designed   and bespoke cake, it is not a prebought or prepackaged cake from a shop. The   price   of   your   cake   is   also   valid   at   the   time   of   offer   and   stands   for   7   days   after   which   time   the   cake   will   need   to   be   repriced.      To   get   the very best deal for you and your cake, it should be booked at the time of quotation.
