Delicious, bespoke celebration cakes for any occasion
Choosing your perfect wedding cake should be a joy. At The Red House, we believe in a truly personal approach and recognise that such an important celebration deserves a very special cake – that is why we go to great lengths to interpret your ideas and create your perfect bespoke wedding cake.
Your bespoke wedding cake all begins with an initial consultation. The consultation is informal and ideally takes place at our premises or at a convenient location. This should
take place at least 3 months before the wedding. We will get together to talk about your ideas. If you have a clear idea of what wedding cake you want, we can talk about how best to make that
possible. Please bring any pictures you have of cakes you have seen and would like.
If you don’t have an idea and want guidance, we can help! Bring any pictures of your wedding dress, flowers, stationery, fabric samples, sketches, photos of the venue – anything that might inspire us in designing your perfect wedding cake. There is a list of questions below that might help.
Following on from the consultation, we would sketch some ideas for you and arrange fresh cake samples of your chosen flavours (alternatively, these can be chosen prior to meeting and tasted at the consultation). You give us your decisions on size, shape, colour, style and we work up the design.
In order to prepare for the initial wedding cake consultation, here are some things to think about:
Some people feel that a summer wedding cake is better suited to something like a fresh, light sponge option with the addition of seasonal berries, whilst a winter wedding cake might be denser chocolate or a fruit cake. The time of year can also be reflected in the decoration.
We can offer simple solutions that can cut down on cost and still offer a stunning cake?
This will help us to decide on the style of cake and the type of decoration that would suit you and your wedding.
Often people choose a cake with colour detail to match the overall wedding theme.
Round, Square, Hexagonal, Heart shaped? So many possibilities.
Do you want one cake or more? Do you want several tiers stacked on top of each other or supported with pillars? Do you want a cascade of cupcakes? Would you like both?
Look through our gallery of bespoke wedding cake alongside this. For inspiration, bring any other wedding based photos you can find to develop some possible ideas
and bring these to the consultation meeting.
