A very special occasion like a wedding calls for a very special cake, and a lot of love goes into the making of every Ginger & Cacao wedding cake.
I offer a personalised and professional service specialising in designs inspired by art, textures and culture. Whether you are looking for something romantic or classic, modern or fun, I am dedicated to working closely with you to create a wedding cake which captures your style and celebrates your wedding.
Creating your wedding cake
The first step to creating your beautiful wedding cake following an enquiry, is setting up an initial consultation. This consultation will give me a chance to learn more about the wedding and cake of your dreams; from your theme, colour palette, season and venue, to the wedding dress, groom’s attire, floral arrangements and decorations. You are very welcome to send me any photos of cakes you have seen and liked online, or any elements from your wedding like fabric samples and invites to add to the design concept.
It is also important that we discuss key details early on, such as the wedding or reception date, number of guests for guidance on servings, price points and most importantly, whether I am the right supplier for your wedding cake on such an important day.
For a more personal and effective consultation I highly recommend conducting it by telephone, at a time convenient for you, although if you prefer emails I am equally happy to oblige. After the initial consultation, I will follow up with an email summary of everything we discussed and guide you towards the next steps to creating your wedding cake.
With all the lovely details from our initial consultation, I will be able to paint a clearer vision of your design concept to start work on sketches for your consideration. These sketches are part of a complimentary service and will be emailed to you before you come for a tasting.
Now for the really fun part – the tasting! Once you are happy with the first sketches and would like to proceed, I can book you in for a cake tasting held at my home here in Morden, Surrey.
Couples can choose up to 3 flavour combinations from a delicious selection of cakes, fillings and buttercream on my Cake Menu. As you enjoy tasting the cakes we will also review the sketches together and make any artistic changes until you are completely satisfied with the design. Tasting sessions usually run for one hour and there will be a small booking fee of £30.00, which is non-refundable but deductible against the total cost of a confirmed wedding cake order.
At Ginger & Cacao, all wedding cakes are especially made-to-order for each couple. The final cost for a wedding cake is quoted according to the complexity of the style and design, the number and sizes of tiers, ingredients as well as the craftsmanship involved. As a guide, my wedding cakes start from the prices shown below.
