Wedding Cake Tasting & Consultation
During your initial Wedding Cake Consultation, we take time to discuss all your ideas. It is also a great opportunity to talk about cake options in terms of size, shape, serving portions and decoration. Prior to your consultation, we prepare delicious sample cakes* (vanilla with homemade strawberry conserve, lemon with homemade lemon curd, caramel with salted caramel and the much-loved chocolate with chocolate ganache and hazelnut oil).
Our Wedding Cake Tasting and Consultation experience costs £15 non-returnable per couple and is payable when you schedule your appointment. During your consultation meeting, we will provide you with a tailored quote based on our discussions. The consultation fee will be deducted from the cost of the cake if you place an order. Consultations must be scheduled at least 72 hours prior to the desired date and are subject to availability. In the unlikely event that you cancel your consultation with at least 48hs notice, we will offer an alternative date.
* Please advise us of any food allergies or special dietary requirements when booking your consultation.

The cost per session is £30 non-returnable per couple and is payable when you schedule your appointment. Please note, Tailored Cake Tasting fees are NOT deductible from the cost of the cake order.

Unable To Visit Us In Person?
Mama Cakes works with customers from all across the United Kingdom, as well as couples coming to get married in the UK from abroad. We love nothing more than to meet our Brides and Grooms in person, however, if that is just not possible, we are happy to work with you by telephone, Skype or email.
Finding inspiration for your Wedding Cake?
Some brides will have started dreaming about their own wedding from a young age and know exactly what they want. However, many brides will find themselves with less than a year to go until the big day with no clear idea of what they want, let alone the finer details such as the dress and the cake.
Mama Cakes understand the pressures of trying to come up with ideas and finding new inspiration. Here is some good news. You are going to be the source of inspiration – your favourite colours, your invitation, your dress or simply a texture that you love. We will create a wedding cake totally unique and personal which will provide an unrivalled event WOW – and of course, that wonderful photo opportunity.
Wedding Cake Tips
Not everyone needs a slice, nor will they want one. We will talk you through just how to decide on the size of your chosen masterpiece and then how best to manage the many flavour options as well as deciding the serving size.
Special Dietary Requirements
We will need to know in advance if any of your guests have a special dietary request. If this is the case, we will deliver a personalised and sealed box with an individual cake. Therefore, you won’t need to sacrifice your wedding cake flavours and everyone will be catered for.
Frequently Asked Questions
All custom-made cakes are priced individually. The final price varies from cake to cake depending on the complexity of the design. We are happy to work within your event budget and will provide a quotation in writing before you commit to purchase.
No. Mama Cakes deliver directly to your celebration, taking the stress away from you on the day, and ensuring the setup of our cakes and desserts is exactly as we promised it would be, leaving you to relax and enjoy your celebration.
Once you have decided to order from Mama Cakes, we will request a £50 non-returnable deposit to secure your chosen date in our diary. Unfortunately, Mama Cakes is not able to guarantee a specific date until the order has been made and the £50 deposit paid as agreed. The remaining balance is to be paid in full four weeks before the wedding/celebration.
We can provide delicious gluten-free options for your special celebration. Whilst we work hard to create a special cake to your specific requirements, Mama Cakes must inform customers that we work in a kitchen where nuts are stored, and therefore cannot guarantee our products are ‘nut-free’.
We accept bank transfer, cash or PayPal (we can take card payments too). When ordering, please tell us about your payment preference and we will send you all the necessary details.
Of course, we can! We just adore making sugar flowers, they are a stunning reminder of your beautiful day and, stored properly, can be admired for many years to come.
Weddings can be booked up to two years in advance. To be confident of a booking, we recommend booking with us at least 12-18 months in advance. The wedding season typically books up very quickly and Mama Cakes is much in demand. If you have a last minute request however, we will always try to make it work for you if we can.
We would always suggest that the earlier the better, however we will always try our best to accommodate last minute requests if we can.
Start by looking at some images online – you can find plenty of options in Pinterest and Instagram – save the pictures that appeal to you. We can use these pictures to identify the styles that you like and help create your ideal wedding cake. We’ll get to know what shapes, colours and design features you’re drawn towards. We also have a lot of display cakes in our studio, so you can get an idea of what it may actually look like on your big day.
We look forward to welcoming you to our exquisite cake studio soon.
