Your Complimentary Consultation

Our latest wedding cake collection should give you plenty of inspiration, and any one of these creations can be customised to incorporate any or all of your own design ideas unique to your wedding.

There are many options to choose from and we will help you to find a design that perfectly reflects your personality, ensuring that the centrepiece of your day is everything that you dreamed of.

Tasting

At your consultation, you can view our extensive portfolio of previous commissions, as well as a selection of our latest collection on display.

We offer a complimentary tasting of our available flavours, and will cater for specialist flavours and dietary requirements, where possible, please arrange at the point of booking. 
We can also discuss the size of cake in relation to your number of guests.

It is always useful to bring along elements of your theme for inspiration, whether it be a picture of your dress or the floral arrangements, even one of your invitations.

Some of the flavours available are; traditional rich fruit cake, rum fruit cake or black cake, moist carrot cake, chocolate fudge, red velvet, lemon cake, vanilla/Madeira sponge, strawberry sponge, almond, banana, coconut, coffee and rum sponge. 
All of our cakes are filled with a rich butter cream or chocolate ganache and the finest fruit preserves.

Lead Times

We advise all of our clients planning their wedding during the months of May to September to secure their date as early as possible. Whilst we will always try to accommodate all of our clients, our bookings are taken on a first come first serve basis, and we reserve the right to decline orders.

Your date can always be secured with a deposit payment, and your design can be finalised during your consultation at a later date.

We kindly request that orders be placed no later than three months before your wedding, however, should you need to, please contact us, as we have on occasion worked within shorter time frames.

Payment

A  20% or £200 non-refundable deposit is required at the point of order. The outstanding balance is due 4 weeks prior to delivery/ collection.

Orders placed inside of four weeks will require payment in full at the point of order, and are non refundable. We accept payment by cheque, or BACS transfer.

Alterations

Where possible, we will always accommodate alterations. 
However, alterations are made at our discretion,  and should the overall cost be affected, then your balance will be adjusted accordingly. 

We respectfully ask that changes are made no later than six weeks prior to the delivery / collection date.

Cancellations

For cancellations greater than six week’s notice prior to your 
wedding date, – specially ordered items or work already undertaken in accordance with your order will require payment. For cancellations with less than six weeks’ notice before the completion date, the full balance will be due.

Delivery

As part of your consultation, we can discuss the delivery and set up of your cake should you require it, however, as there are limitations to the number of deliveries we can conduct, an advance booking is the best way to secure your date during the busy wedding season. 

Our delivery service will include liaison with your venue, assembly of the cake in situ, and dressing with fresh flowers if so required. 

The service is dependent upon availability and will be charged on an hourly basis determined by the travel distance and the time and labour required for assembling the cake. 

Collection

Should you wish to collect your cake, we will provide you with full transport, assembly and storage instructions where required. Please note that once the cake has been collected, the client is responsible, Ann’s Designer Cakes will not liable for any damages thereafter.

Cake stand hire can be arranged, with a small security deposit, again, please note, it is the clients responsibility to return the stand within the agreed time frame.
