MAKE AN ENQUIRY
Your initial enquiry can be made by email using the contact form. Please include the wedding date, number of guests and venue. If you would like to begin with quotations, please indicate the style or finish that you’re interested in. This doesn’t have to be your final choice by any means but will help me to give you an idea of cost.
Cake tiers are approximately 5″ deep, consisting of 4 layers of sponge with a layer of filling between each one. They are available in the following finishes:
Cake covered with Belgian chocolate ganache then superior quality sugarpaste icing (fondant), smoothed to a sharp edge for a clean, contemporary look.
Buttercream: Sponge covered in silky, Italian meringue buttercream with a smooth or textured finish.
Semi-naked: Lightly frosted with slightly visible cake layers.
Naked: Bare sponge, usually garnished with fresh fruit and/ or fresh flowers.
Ganache: Sponge covered with white, dark or milk chocolate ganache, smoothed to a sharp edge.
Customised cake displays and dessert tables are a speciality here at Cake Couture. Choose from one or more cakes, cupcakes, iced cookies, meringues and macarons. See the Menu for further details.
Cake stands, tableware and accessories are available for hire to display your cake or dessert table at it’s very best.
CONSULTATION/ CAKE TASTING
Complimentary private consultations are available if you need help and advice with the design process. These are by appointment only at my home based studio and take approx 45-60 minutes, including cake tasting.
Design appointments are not usually required for buttercream/ semi naked/ naked cakes as the design is standard, but are available if necessary. Collection of cake samples costs £10 which is deducted from your balance, if you proceed to booking. If collection isn’t possible or convenient, a boxed selection of your choice can be sent by guaranteed next day delivery, to your home or work address. The cost for this service is £20 within the UK or £25 ROI. Again, £10 is returned if you place an order.
PLACING AN ORDER
Before booking, you will receive terms & conditions which outline all the important information. Bookings are provisional until a £100 deposit is received. The remaining balance is payable 4 weeks before the wedding/ event. Payments are accepted in cash, by online bank transfer or cheque.
Delivery of wedding cakes is strongly recommended and is available to venues within a 75 mile radius of Bangor, Co. Down. Collection is also possible for iced cakes of 3 tiers or less.
To ensure your experience is as stress free as possible, the seamless service at Cake Couture includes liaising with your wedding suppliers eg. florists, planners, stylists etc. and working with your wedding venue coordinator to schedule delivery and set-up of your cake.
