Consultation & Tasting
I invite you to come in for a consultation and tasting, with up to four people, for events of 100 people or greater. The retainer fee is $50.00 and will be applied to your order should you select me for your event. For smaller, yet equally as important events, there is a no-refundable fee of $60.00.
During this one hour personal consultation, you will meet one on one with me and I will take you step by step through the process of planning the perfect cake, cupcakes or dessert tables – whatever you desire! Make sure to bring your questions and design ideas.
While discussing and brainstorming the design, you will sample a variety of cake and fillings, and discuss which flavors work to give your guests the perfect ending of their meal. For those clients out of state or unable to come in to visit, I am available to schedule internet consultations or phone consultations.
Because I am a small home-based shop, I do a limited amount of cakes each week and suggest scheduling your consultation as soon as you have the date of your event, though I always do my best to accommodate last minute requests.
The Design Process
When you come for your consultation, together we will brainstorm the perfect cake, cupcake display or dessert table for your event.
Bring as much inspiration as you can; your save the date or invitation, picture of your gown, photos of cakes you've seen that you like, color swatches or palettes – pictures of your flowers – anything that helps tell your story.
I will “surf” the internet, browse through Pinterest and pull color swatches – anything to help find the perfect pieces to reflect your style and capture the perfect emotion of your day.
Once your cake, cupcakes or dessert table is designed, we can discuss the coordination of the perfect complimentary display piece or pieces for your event; I have some pieces available for rent, or you can provide your own.
