The process to designing your dream wedding cake

Step 1 securing your wedding date

As soon as you have booked your venue, it is best to get in touch to check my availability, my diary is open for 2020/21/22 in particular, my diary fills up very quickly between May and September.

It is myself who designs, bakes and decorates all the cakes here at Fay's cakes, I offer a personal service to each of my couples, taking on a limited number of commissions each month.

Sometimes I can take on commissions at shorter notice, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

If your date is available we will discuss your cake style and details via email, this will enable me to give you an initial price guide.

You can then secure your booking with a £100 'save the date' deposit, this means you are firmly booked in our diary and you can carry on with the rest of your wedding planning.

Step 2 Design & tasting consultation

Once your date is secured I will invite you for a complimentary design and tasting consultation for two closer to your wedding date, once you have picked your colours, flowers etc. 

Don't worry if you can't make it along for a consultation as the design process can all be done via emails as I often work with couples that live outside the UK.

Consultations are a great opportunity for us to meet and discuss your wedding plans in more detail, please feel free to bring along any photos, stationary or colour swatches which you would like to use as inspiration for your cake.

We will also have a selection of our most popular flavours from my menu for you to try.

After your consultation, I will prepare a final proposal detailing your quotation, drawings, cake flavours, delivery details, stand hire and any other requirements via email.

*PLEASE NOTE* I do not offer a design and tasting consultations for semi-naked or naked cakes. I do however offer a complimentary tasting box once your booking fee has been paid.

Step 3 Final payment & delivery

Six weeks before your wedding date I will be in touch to confirm your chosen wedding cake design and flavours. This is when your remaining balance is also due.

When you order your wedding cake from Fay's cakes, we will liaise directly with your wedding venue to arrange a suitable delivery and setup time of your wedding a cake on the morning of your wedding, all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your wedding day.
