Questions to ask your cake maker !
I thought I would start my first blog with what are the most important questions to ask your cake maker and giving my answers below them.
1. Q. Do you do cake tastings so that we may try before we buy ?
A. Yes, most definately ! I try to do two full days each year on an appointment only basis. However, if you are not able to make those dates then, of course, we can book a tasting day which is convenient to us both.
2. Q. Are your cakes freshly baked to order ?
A. Yes, I never pre-make any of my cakes and freeze them. Your cake will be made within four days of the date required therefore ensuring that they are as fresh as can be.
3. Q. Do you work with fondant or buttercream ?
A. I work with both however, if you are having a summer wedding especially with the extremes of summer heat we are experiencing, I may suggest that you look at having a fondant ( sugar-pasted) cake.
4. Q. Can you make sugar flowers ?
A. I can make certain flowers in sugar and am always willing to experiment ! I do have a range of flowers for you to see, if required. I am also more than happy to work with your florist should you require fresh flowers on your cake.
5. Q. Do you provide cake stands ?
A. All my fondant iced cakes are supplied on a fully iced cake board. These will quite happily sit directly onto a cake table. However, I do have certain cake-stands which are available to hire which includes a wooden tree slice in order to display naked / semi naked cakes at their best.
6. Q. Do you deliver ?
A. Not a silly question ! Some cake makers do not deliver to venues ! This one does ! I will deliver and set-up your cake so you don't have to worry and can enjoy your day !
7. Q. Have you been approved by the local council and environmental health authority ?
A. Absolutely ! All my certificates are available to see upon request. I also have public liability insurance.
