What should I bring to my consultation?
During our meeting, we will collaborate on a custom cake design that captures the vision you have in mind for your special occasion. It’s a good idea to come prepared! Have several of your favorite designs or styles in mind and bring anything that you would like to incorporate into your design, such as invitations, centerpieces, decor, bouquets, the venue, an heirloom, or a picture of your wedding dress. You may also wish to bring or email CakeItUp™ Boutique copies of any pictures of cakes that you have found on social media (Pinterest, etc.) that you wish to incorporate into your final design.
How soon should I place my order?
For wedding cakes, clients are encouraged to schedule their consultation as soon as the event date has been set. Usually three-nine months out is sufficient to save your date for a wedding cake. Please feel free to inquire at any time and we will check our availability and schedule a consultation. A non-refundable 50% deposit is required to secure your date at the time of booking and the remaining balance is due two weeks before your event date. We understand that special situations arise where shorter term planning is required. Contact CakeItUp™ Boutique and we’ll see what we can do to meet your individual needs. For other special events, ordering your cake or cupcakes several weeks in advance is usually sufficient to guarantee the availability of your order. As always, the earlier the better.
Can I request a secondary consultation?
Your first consultation is free, so the more we can accomplish at that time the better! If for any reason you wish to request additional consultations they will be billed at $25.00 per 30 minutes.
