Wedding Consultation

Congratulations!

If you have recently become engaged, I extend my warmest congratulations and Thank You for your interest in Cakes by Kels! I am proud to offer a very personal and consultative service to ensure your wedding cake is a proud memory that lasts a lifetime.

I understand that taking time to explore your dream cake is the most exciting part of the creative process. It’s a great opportunity to find the perfect combination of design and flavours to complement your wedding theme. From your initial consultation to the moment you slice into your beautiful wedding cake, I will work with you to perfect every last detail.

A professional yet informal consultation and cake tasting is the first step to plan and conceptualise your wedding cake vision.

Lasting approximately 1 hour, we will discuss cake flavours, wedding cake styles, possible designs, colour schemes, hire, delivery and set up. Please feel free to bring along any pictures, colour swatches, ideas on flowers or mood boards you have put together.

*The cost for the consultation is £15.00 non-returnable per couple which will be deducted from the cost of the cake if booked.

After your consultation, Kels will provide you with a quotation and a detailed summary of your consultation which will include pictures/sketches of your design to ensure all important details were captured and understood.

*To secure our limited availability, we request booking with plenty of notice.

After placing your order, Kels will continue to work with you to perfect every detail of your cake allowing for minor design amendments up to six weeks prior to the wedding date.

The remaining balance of your cake is to be paid in full, one month prior to your wedding day. At this time Kels will review the details and guest numbers with you, to ensure everything is to your satisfaction before making arrangements to securely deliver and display your handcrafted cake for your big day.

DO YOU CATER TO PEOPLE WITH ALLERGIES & INTOLERANCES?

We can provide delicious gluten-free options for your special celebration. Whilst we work hard to create a special cake to your specific requirements, Cakes by Kels must inform customers that we work in a kitchen where nuts are stored, and therefore cannot guarantee our products are ‘nut-free’.

Your wedding budget

We know that weddings can end up costing more than expected so we’ve structured our prices around a ‘base cake’ cost. There will always be a ‘base’ cost for a simple iced cake, and we will then provide you with a quotation for the extra cost of the decoration of your choice. We can also make suggestions regarding decoration and extras to help you keep within budget.

Our base price includes each tier iced in either white or ivory icing, finished with ribbon trim in your choice of colour and mounted on an iced trimmed board.

  • Two tiers from £275
  • Three tiers from £395
  • Four tiers from £500
  • Five tiers from £650

Cupcakes could be the perfect addition to your celebration, whether it’s a complete display as an alternative to a wedding cake or as favours to match with it.
