Before attending your Design Consultation, It's important that you think about the expecations for your cake. You must keep in mind your flavor preferences and also be open to new options that you may have never thought of. In many cases, clients have no idea of what they want their cake to be like, not only flavor wise but design wise, and that is also ok. In most case coming with an empty canvas will allow you and our designer to create a cake that will be complete reflection of you and your event.
When looking for inspiration for your cakes’s design and style, you must think about which elements in your event are the ones you love the most. In some cases this might be your palette (colors), your jewelry, your wedding gown or dress, your invitation or even your flowers. It is important that you keep this information in mind and even write it down if necessary, as this will allow your cake designer to present you with designs that reflect your taste and your style. Due to copyright and designer etiquette we can't ever duplicate the photo of a cake, however we can take the image and use it as inspiration to then make the cake your own.
