The beginning of something beautiful...
Exciting times! I remember the feeling of planning my Wedding, like it was yesterday.. family & friends looking forward to celebrating your love & so many choices to make!
Congratulation's on your forthcoming Wedding & the beginning of your next chapter together.
Choosing your cake should be a fun & relaxed part of the planning process, but with so much choice and inspiration available it can be a little daunting.
At Trula Marie's Little Cake Company, it's our job to listen, to guide, inspire you & to take care of the fine detail so you are able to completely enjoy bringing your dream design to reality. We work closley with industry professionals, our approved venues & your chosen venues to bring you peace of mind.
Trula Maries Little Cake Company would be honoured to make a gorgeous Wedding cake that represents your love story, so please keep reading to find out more about our Wedding service.
The first step is to book a consultation with Trula.
This gives you the opportunity to discuss your plans for your event and any cake ideas you might already have. Consultations are usually held at the clients home, although on request meetings can be held at your venue. Meeting gives the opportunity to get know one another a little better. If we are unable to visit, the design process can be carried out via video call or email if you wish.
Trula will usually start to sketch design ideas during the meeting, though these will be very rough. More complex/unusual designs may require more dedicated time, desiging your cake, your way takes time & final sketches and ideas will be emailed to you after the meeting.
A consultation includes cake tasting. You are invited to choose 4 to 5 of our flavours prior to our meeting, these are freshly baked for you to sample. There is a £30 fee to book a custom consultation & cake tasting. This fee is then deducted from the final cake price.
Before booking, you may be asked for a few details, this allows us to ensure that we are able to cater to your requirements. Cake samples can also be sent to you if you would prefer or are unable to meet in person.
Orders are only confirmed with a 25% deposit, the remaining balance will then be due 6 weeks prior to your date. We understand that planning your event is quite often an ongoing process so please be assured we are here throughout to answer questions and help with any queries & all the finer detail of creating your dream cake.
Small changes can be made right up until the remaining balance payment is due.
In the weeks leading up to your wedding it is possible we will be working away behind the scenes on details such as sugar flowers, hours & hours of work go in to this part of the process. The week leading up to your wedding is dedicated to your cake. Your chosen flavours are baked and fillings prepared. Your cake is iced, stacked and decorated ready for delivery - some larger cakes will be stacked & decoration finished at the venue due to transporting safely & being extremly heavy to lift.
We always deliver and set up your cake on the day of the wedding.
We will have contacted your venue to arrange this in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
Your beautiful cake will be standing proud, waiting for you on your arrival at the reception.
How soon should I book?
We take a limited numer of wedding commission per month to ensure high standards & therefore advise ordering your cake as early as possible - It's never too soon!
If in doubt we would generally advise at least, one year to 6 months in advance.
We do try where ever possible to accommodate late orders, so always get in touch.
Please bare in mind bank holiday weekends & the summer months do book up very quickly.
