Wedding Cakes in Huddersfield. Award winning wedding cake design in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
So, you’ve contacted us about designing and creating your dream wedding cake, what happens next?
If you don’t have a set idea about how you want your wedding cake to look, we will start by taking 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 send us any pictures, pinterest boards, colour swatches etc that you may have, so that we can design a wedding cake will really compliment the theme of your day.
There are an absolute myriad of different types of wedding cake these days, pretty vintage style, intricately iced, decadent belgian chocolate, naked wedding cakes and semi naked wedding cakes, cupcake wedding cakes, miniature cakes. Hanging wedding cakes, chandelier upside down wedding cakes, wedding dessert tables, doughnut wedding cakes and even macaron pyramid wedding cakes. Wedding cakes adorned with hand made sugar roses, blossom and butterflies, and fresh or silk flowers. Wedding cakes can be stencilled, airbrushed and hand painted, or simply iced with satin ribbon and maybe a vintage brooch.
The Vintage theme for weddings has always been hugely popular, soft muted pastel shades, pearls, lace, ribbons and old English garden flowers like peonies, roses, hydrangaes and lily of the valley. Currently it is very in-vogue to add a gold or silver dimension with heavily moulded and embroidered elements to the vintage wedding cake design to introduce a level of opulence. The use of pretty vintage china, lead crystal, tinted glassware and low level lighting at your reception can add another dimension and we can provide this for you. 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 may be more befitting of a classic, simple wedding cake, perhaps on a pretty pillared cake stand, but equally, an extravagantly decorated wedding cake could give you the wow-factor you are looking for at your reception.
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 with a quote within a few days of booking. We are dedicated to creating the perfect wedding cake for you, and we only ever take one wedding cake booking on a particular day. We always include delivery and set-up of your wedding cake to any venue throughout the North of England, including Leeds, Wakefield, Yorkshire, Manchester and Cheshire. All Wedding Cakes are individually priced, but as a guide, a simply iced three-tiered wedding cake, delivered and set-up at a Huddersfield wedding venue starts at £300.00.
A 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. If you would like to book an appointment, you can do so with a £50.00 deposit. This is deducted from the final invoice.
