Not telling the cake maker the cake is for a wedding

Lying about a cake being a wedding cake: Why Honesty Matters

Trust and transparency are essential ingredients in the wedding planning process, and by being upfront about their intentions, couples can ensure that their cake reflects the care and attention it deserves.

The key reasons why wedding cake prices may be higher than other types of cakes:

Consultation and Tastings: 

Creating a custom wedding cake is a collaborative process, requiring time and effort to bring the couple's vision to life. We offer consultation and sometimes tastings to ensure that every detail, from flavour to design, is tailored to their preferences. However, this personalised service comes at a cost, reflecting the expertise and dedication invested in each creation.

Structural Stability: 

Wedding cakes are often multi-tiered masterpieces, requiring careful stacking and construction to ensure they remain stable throughout the event. Unlike a regular cake, which may only have one or two layers, wedding cakes can reach towering heights.

Professional Delivery: 

We take pride in personally delivering each wedding cake to the venue. This not only ensures that the cake arrives in pristine condition, but also eliminates the risk of damage during transportation. Our goal is to provide peace of mind to couples knowing that their cake will be flawlessly presented on their big day.

Floral Arrangements: 

Many wedding cakes are adorned with fresh flowers. But attaching flowers to a cake requires more than just aesthetics; it must be done in a food-safe manner to ensure the flowers are free from pesticides and other contaminants.

Liability Insurance: We carry liability insurance that extends to the venue, providing protection in the event of any unforeseen accidents or damages. This additional layer of security offers couples reassurance that they are covered in case of any mishaps.

Stability and Longevity: 

Unlike a cake for immediate consumption, wedding cakes are often on display for

extended periods, requiring additional structural support to maintain their shape and freshness. This extra care ensures that the cake remains picture-perfect throughout the festivities.

Despite these considerations, some individuals may attempt to deceive cake makers by misrepresenting their order as a non-wedding event in hopes of securing a lower price. However, this dishonesty not only undermines the trust between the couple and the cake maker but also jeopardises the quality and integrity of the final product.
