Consultation and Design Process

 

 S tep 1 – Set up a consultation with our cake designer by sending a request to Luda@sweetdiscoveries.com. The consultation is for an hour where you will meet with the cake designer to design your cake, and you can also try up to five flavors. Let us know your choice of flavors with your request about the consultation. There is a $25.00 charge for the consultation that will be applied toward the cost of your cake when you order the cake,

Step 2 – Prepare and bring as much information about your wedding with you as possible. Information such as colors, wedding invitations, type of flowers, etc. If you like a certain cake design from a magazine or the internet, bring it with you.

Step 3 – After the consultation, we will send you a contract with a detailed estimate of the cost of the cake, including a delivery and setup charge . Equipment rental or equipment deposit may be applicable. A sketch of the cake design will be also included.

Step 4 – Once you are in agreement with the contract, you will send us the signed contract by mail or scanned and sent by email along with the 50% deposit that is required to hold the wedding date. Please note that the wedding date is not guaranteed until the 50% deposit and signed contract is received. The final payment is required no later than two weeks prior to the wedding date.

Periodically we host group tastings at our cake boutique where our Couples sample flavors that are out of season. There is the Spring/Summer and the Winter/Fall Tasting. Our couples can personally meet the team who will work on their cake, try the flavors of cupcakes that are more popular at the time of their wedding. We will answer the most common questions that our couples ask. The tastings last 1 hour and are free of charge. The date and time will be announced on Facebook. And you can book your space by e-mail at luda@sweetdiscoveries.com.
