Do you provide consultations and tastings
Yes we do! Consultations can be arranged for wedding cakes over $500 to discuss all the finer details. Each consultation is 30 mins with the first consultation being free, whilst any subsequent consultations will incur a cost. Our tasting boxes are available for cake orders over $200 for a cost of $25. Up to 3 flavours may be chosen.
How do I store my cake, cupcakes, flowers and figurines
All uncut cakes should be stored in a dry, cool place out of direct sunlight and somewhere where they will not be knocked or moved. Cakes covered in fondant or that have fondant decorations on them should not be stored in the fridge as the fondant will sweat and colours may run due to condensation. Cakes with brightly coloured fondant (especially pinks and purples) should be kept in a darker environment if possible, as these colours are more likely to fade significantly. Once the cake is cut, it may be wrapped in glad wrap and stored in the fridge for several days.
Cupcakes should NOT be stored in the fridge as they tend to dry out much quicker than larger cakes and lose their freshness. Please store these in the box they are delivered in, in a dry, cool room out of direct sunlight.
Flowers & Figurines
Non-edible decorations must be removed prior to the cake being cut and served. This may include (but is not limited to) wired flowers, fresh flowers, bling, internal support structure and figurines. Sugar paste flowers and figurines may be edible, but it is recommended that they be removed and kept as a keepsake of the celebration. Simply remove them from the cake and cut off the spike if present and wipe the base clean. Allow the sugar paste to dry completely over several days (maybe longer in humid conditions) and then store them in a clean cardboard box or display box out of direct sunlight. Please note that colours will fade over time. Do not store them in airtight containers or in the fridge or freezer as their integrity will not be maintained.
