Wedding Cake Tasting
We are a family business with an excellent reputation and attempt to keep our costs to a minimum so that we can offer our clients the best service and competitive prices.
Over recent months, we have had a number of clients not turn up for their consultation and tasting experience, or have cancelled last minute. Having already prepared our sample cakes and venue, this obviously has an impact on our running costs. Therefore, we need to charge £15 to contribute towards the costs.
What is involved in your Wedding Cake Tasting & Consultation?
We put a lot of thought and effort into your consultation, starting from the planning and preparation of our freshly baked cakes, to our meeting together. This session is really important and enables us to understand how we can help you to make your wedding day even more special with one of our bespoke cake designs. Don’t worry though we don’t expect you to come with a complete design in mind, you can however follow us on Instagram for more inspiration
There is a £15 charge per couple for this service, payable when you schedule your appointment; however, if you decide to go ahead and order a cake, we will deduct the £15 from your final bill.
60 Minutes of Professional Advice or more…
Yes, we do take our time to understand your wedding day and what you are looking for and more importantly to explain the wedding cake process. Cake options in terms of size, shape, serving portions and finally, we talk about the decoration. Then, we will prepare a tailored quote based on our discussions.
Moment of Truth – The Cake Tasting
On the very same day of your consultation, we bake your cake samples. We offer four different flavours: 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. They are nicely presented and accompanied with a lovely cup of tea or coffee.
Choose your own sample cake flavour
If you would like to try those Mama Cakes’ cake flavours that you have been craving for, then a Tailored Cake Tasting is just for you…
Mama Cakes’ tailored session includes four cake flavours of your choice plus a cup of tea or coffee. 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.
Any Food Allergies?
There is nothing worse than going to a celebration and not being able to eat the wedding cake. If you or any of your guests have any food intolerances please let us know. We can cater for people with intolerances or allergies even for the cake tasting.
Save Your Date with Mama Cakes
If you are ready to book your date, we make things simple: we request £50 non-returnable deposit to SAVE YOUR DATE with Mama Cakes, payable with a Credit Card, PayPal or Cash. You will then receive a link to our client area with details of your wedding date.
At Mama Cakes, all cake deposits are deducted from the cost of the cake if you place an order.
Cancel or Reschedule Your Consultation
We understand that life gets busier when organising a wedding, so in the unlikely event that you cancel or want to reschedule your consultation, please give us at least 48 hours notice, we will then offer you an alternative date. If clients cancel at short notice, or don’t turn up, our sample cakes will be wasted, resulting in loss of money and wasted time.
During busy periods, a 48 hours cancellation notice gives us the opportunity to offer the cancelled appointment to another couple. All our customers are valued, however our time is limited due to the importance of giving complete satisfaction when preparing for up and coming weddings.
We want to provide you with excellent service and a glorious edible creation. Our aim is to maintain the highest standards for our customers and to make sure that Mama Cakes will be your BEST WEDDING EXPERIENCE.
