Every wedding cake consultation is slightly different, but you can expect to cover a few key topics: the cake maker’s experience and business, your wedding colours and theme(s), wedding cake designs, cake flavours (including tasting some samples), cake setup on the day (venue, stand, timing), costs and payment. I usually conduct these in your home, or wedding venue, but other cake makers may invite you to their studio or home too.
They aren’t usually very formal, just a conversation between you, your partner or other helpful individual, and the cake maker. You should always expect cake samples, and in most cases, you’ll get to choose the flavours of these in advance. As you’re talking through designs and ideas, your cake maker may start making some rough sketches of ideas, or may even show you pictures of other wedding cake designs to help you visualise what you’re all talking about.
