Wedding Cake Design in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
So, if you’ve decided to book a wedding cake design consultation, you’ve probably done your research, had a good look through our website and checked out all of the real life wedding cakes in our gallery that we have designed and created in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, Manchester and Cheshire. You might know the exact Wedding Cake Design you have in mind, or you might be looking for inspiration, information and guidance. You might not have even decided on your Wedding Venue or any of your Wedding Suppliers yet. We have lots of insider information which we are more than happy to share. Whatever your requirements, we’re here to help, every step of the way, and we’re more than happy to do so.
I would say that perhaps only a third of our Brides and Grooms choose to come for a Wedding Cake Consultation, for some it’s a really important part of the Wedding Planning experience, it’s such an exciting time….planning an amazing day that’s entirely focussed on you and everything you represent as a couple beginning your beautiful future together, surrounded by everyone you hold near and dear, and everything you love. The most important day of your lives. But everyone is different, and the majority of our clients are more than happy to arrange and organise the entire design and order process by email or phone. It’s so easy. We can correspond via email or messenger and we can send cake samples in the post. Simply choose your desired flavours! In fact many of our couples live quite a long way from their Wedding Venue and indeed the Wedding Service providers, so it’s not always practical, and definately not necessary, so just bear this in mind.
I’m from St Helens and we get married in my husbands home town of Yorkshire. I was trying to find a cake supplier local to our venue, then I found the fabulous Sugar Velvet Cake Company. All our correspondence was done via email. Sharon understand my vision perfectly and our wedding cake was simply stunning!
Sugar Velvet Cake Company is due to Sharon’s incredible customer services. She understood my vision completely! Not only is she very talented but all the emails where kind, friendly and very calming, which is what you need as a bride!! She was amazing at keeping in touch and even replied to emails while she was on holiday!! We were having a vintage inspired wedding and Sharon even decorated the cake table to match the theme :). I would definitely recommend this lady to anyone getting married!! :).
In fact, we have found that some clients would actually prefer not to sit and sip coffee, taste cake samples, and answer questions or make decisions on the spot in front of someone they have only just met! This is why we offer different options, different strokes for different folks? And, if you’re as loved up as most of you are when you’re planning your ‘happily ever after’ why not discuss and decide on the finer details together, just the two of you? It’s your day, your way, and that includes the entire planning and decision process. That’s not to say that now you’ve booked your date with us the service stops….No it most definately doesn’t, it’s simply the beginning of the process, and whatever tweaks or alterations you want, we’re here.
A good wedding cake designer should always be able to provide sketches to give an impression of how your cake will look. We will do this for you, we can usually email a design sketch of your wedding cake within a few days of booking. We are dedicated to creating the perfect wedding cake for you, including a full design service, including cake sketch and design updates and complete correspondence until you are completely happy with everything.
We always take as much detail as possible from you about your special day. Individual style, type of venue, likes/dislikes, colours, themes, and any ideas you have for your wedding cake. It’s a good idea to bring any pictures, colour swatches and any other bits and pieces you may have, so that the design of the wedding cake will really compliment the theme of your day.
Your Wedding Cake can be literally anything you want, the possibilities really are limitless….pretty vintage style, intricately iced, decadent belgian chocolate, naked and semi-naked wedding cakes, towering cupcakes topped with a single tier wedding cake, dessert table displays or a selection of miniature cakes. Wedding cakes adorned with sugar roses, ruffles, gold and silver leaf, sequins, moulded and monogrammed details, intricate piping and fresh or silk flowers. Wedding cakes in any style, design and size.
We don’t do Consultation Days! Yes, I know some Wedding Cake Makers do…but I don’t think it gives the best results… not for us anyway. This is because I personally put 150% into designing and potentially creating the most amazing and fabulous Wedding Cake possible for your brief and budget, and that takes time and contemplation. I could not say ‘hand on heart’ that I was doing you justice by giving you a 45 minute slot on a specified date (having baked the entire range of cake flavours for everyone to sample)… with the next client arriving imminently with a completely different brief. That’s just me, and… it may work for others. But I don’t work that way. That’s why we don’t tend to do wedding fairs any more, they’re just not productive for us and most importantly, YOU the client. We prefer to do Wedding Open Days at Huddersfield, Yorkshire and Manchester Wedding Venues. It’s the most contemporary way of showcasing suppliers as there are just one of each to see in the Venue space. It’s more focussed. And very much less like a craft fair or farmers market…that’s not very unique, individual or indeed weddingy! (Not just our opinion, but that of our many clients over the years).
So, we offer a choice. You can come to us…or we can come to You… (in person if you are within a 10 mile radius of HD3). We can meet via Skype or Facetime if you are further afield…or just busy! Or, we can meet at your Huddersfield, Halifax or Bradford Wedding Venue during the day. Meeting at your Wedding Venue is a fabulous way of covering everything in the one place that is the most important. I can help you visualise the size of your wedding cake inside the actual space. We can discuss all of the details and address any questions or concerns you may have, on-site, with the added advantage of having your Wedding Co-Ordinator on hand.
The Vintage theme for weddings has always been hugely popular, trending and set to continue, it’s stunningly timeless… soft muted pastel shades, pearls, lace, ribbons and old English garden flowers like peonies, roses and lily of the valley. Pick which vintage period you love, and we will offer suggestions to suit. The use of pretty vintage china at your reception can add another dimension, but equally an eclectic mix of period vintage married with contemporary is an up and coming theme. Silver and glass or crystal coupled with chalky hues of an old english rose garden, maybe accented with a dark or strong and vibrantly coloured detail will raise the whole theme into the next level.
Think about your venue when deciding on the style of your wedding cake. A grand reception with ornate features and high ceilings deserves a statement cake which will be a stunning centrepiece. The height of a cake can be raised by incorporating false tiers or the use of beautiful and unusual separators or stands.
A small reception venue for a cosy and intimate gathering will be more befitting of a classic, simple wedding cake, perhaps on a pretty pillared cake stand, rustic log slice or moss, woodland and floral elements. We can also provide personalised individual cake slice and cupcake boxes alongside the arrangement so your guests can take something home with them as a memento of your special day.
A rustic, country wedding venue or indeed any Wedding Venue would certainly be befitting of a beautiful Wedding Dessert Table, this means that we can incorporate lots of choice into an amazing spread out arrangement, including cakes, cupcakes, bakes treats, sweets, floral arrangements, adorable wedding signs and accessories to create a sumptuous display that delivers the ultimate wow-factor.
An Asian Wedding Venue will certainly be able to accomodate a very large audience, we know how many wedding guests you might have! Give your Asian Wedding Cake the space it deserves… you will have so many guests all wanting that photo opportunity with the Bride and Groom around the Wedding Cake, whether it is staged in the popular position on the dancefloor, or in a different setting at your Wedding Venue. Maybe taking advantage of the architectural features providing a beautiful backdrop to these keepsake memories for loved ones who were a part of your special day.
A wow-factor statement wedding cake with 5 or 6 tiers will definately deserve a carefully planned backdrop or a cleverly thought out table….glass is amazing and gives the illusion of space underneath. If you have hundreds of guests, or simply require more cake we can also provide extra cutting cakes to give additional portions of wedding cake, these cutting cakes are priced at £1.00 per portion.
Positioning your Wedding Cake, along with how it is displayed, is one of the many elements we include as standard, it’s all part of the service. We liaise with your Wedding Venue/Wedding Planner every step of the way, these are essential and important details that you shouldn’t need to add to your already very long list of to-do’s!
In addition, we have always (from the very beginning actually!), included table dressing as standard. And always ensure that our wedding cakes include ‘all round interest’…Never, ever… will we create a wedding cake with a blank back! So, you can be assured that even if your wedding cake is to be set against a wall, the rear view will still be perfect (as that’s where you will probably be standing during the ‘cutting photos’). It’s the little details that mean a lot.
The final balance is due 6 weeks before your wedding date, a reminder and detailed invoice will be sent, and we ask that you please adhere to this timescale (don’t panic, we’ll send you a reminder if you’ve got a bit busy with the rest of the wedding chaos!), we want to spend all of our time and attention in this imminent period creating the best possible experience for your wedding and create and deliver an absolutely amazing wedding cake, rather than chasing up boring but necessary admin!
We always include delivery and set-up of your wedding cake to any venue throughout the North of England, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, Manchester and Cheshire, and we absolutely always contact and organise the logistics of delivering and setting up the wedding cake at the wedding venue, so you don’t need to worry about anything at all. All Wedding Cakes are as individually priced as they are unique to you and your requirements.
We do also offer a collection service, or delivery to your home prior to the wedding day for our single tier wedding cakes, two tier wedding cakes, cupcakes, dessert table treats and wedding favours if you would prefer to transport the cake or cakes yourself.
Your Wedding Cake design consultation is the ideal opportunity to sample some of the cake flavours you are interested in over a cup of tea or coffee! It’s all very friendly and informal, and you’re under no obligation to book, but most do :0)
Our Wedding Cakes look and taste exquisite!
It’s all about the design, imagination, creativity…and the desire to deliver amazing, spectacular and very unique cakes that taste every bit as good as they look…Every time…
