booking your wedding cake experience

It can seem that your wedding date is a long way away, and that cake is something you can plan ‘later’ - we are often asked how far ahead is needed to book a cake; the really simple answer is as soon as you find a cake specialist who bakes cake you love to eat and you adore their design ideas!


I am currently booking ahead to 2022 and 2020 is almost fully booked!  I am happy to reserve a date for a booking fee of £75 and then meet with you closer to your date to plan a beautiful design and choose your flavours. So if you have a wedding date its a good idea to get in touch with us to check availability and if you love my style. reserve your date and then we can work out the design details when you have chosen your theme, colours and are ready to eat cake!  


We hold personal consultations regularly at my bespoke studio in Aston Clinton with a range of our beautiful cakes on display for you to view.  I enjoy meeting you to discuss ideas and look at some of your inspiration for your wedding once you have decided on your theme and colour schemes, (usually about 9-12 months before).  At the consultation we enjoy a glass of bubbly or something warm if you prefer, and you select your cake from our wide menu of flavours as shown in this link: (https://www.sugardesigns.co.uk/flavours-pricing).


We chat through all the elements of your wedding day and bring them together to incorporate into your perfect centrepiece - whilst eating lots of lovely cake and of course wedding favours!  l enjoy making every cake as unique as possible so that you are completely delighted with it on your special day.


Usually it’s just the bride and groom at the consultation, however with advance notice you are welcome to bring up to 3 people (including yourselves) if you would like to. I always ask you to confirm how many people to expect so that we can make sure there is enough cake for everyone!   The consultation cost is £40, payable in advance and this is of course credited against your final invoice when you book with Sugar Designs. Your wedding cake quote includes a consultation with full tasting experience and design plans, delivery and set up at the venue within a 20 mile radius, and if required loan of a cake stand  is also included as its important your cake is shown to it’s best advantage!

To book a consultation please contact us.
