Wedding cake consultations

What is a wedding cake consultation?

A wedding cake consultation is a great way to share more about your wedding or special event with your baker. At Love + Sugar, we believe that every moment deserves to be celebrated deliciously and where every bite tells a story of warmth, joy, and unforgettable flavor. We will discuss your wedding itself, cake inspiration and flavor selections. This is the perfect opportunity to taste amazing cake flavors and have a one-on-one conversation about all the details and design elements of your dream cake. It is my job to make you comfortable with the cake ordering process and answer any questions. You must have a date set for your wedding and a venue booked before scheduling an appointment.  

Where do I begin?

You may start the process by filling out the form which can be found above. The form is easy to fill out, and it is where I get some basic information about your special day. Weddings come in all sizes! If you’re planning a micro-wedding or just need a small single tier cake, we’d be happy to assist. The order request includes a place to list your venue, describe your wedding theme and style, upload reference photos, as well as a current menu to select three preliminary cake and filling flavors. Upon receiving your form, I will contact you via email (or phone) to start discussing details (like color, fillings, decorations, etc). And you can ask more questions!

How much does it cost?

Consultation appointments are $25, and when you officially put down a deposit on your order, that $25 will be credited towards your order payment. Appointments typically last about 45 - 60  minutes. *Additional samples can be added for $10 per plate. These additional samples do not count towards the order credit.

Where will we meet?

I am a home baker located near Van Alstyne, TX. The consultation is held at a mutually agreed upon location. There are two great coffee shops in Van Alstyne that are very accommodating. If meeting is not convenient, you may also pick up a "to go" box.

How far in advance should I place my order?

Sooner the better!  It is never too early to book a date for your wedding or special event cake. Most weddings happen on weekends and they fill up quickly.

The day of the appointment

Feel free to bring with you saved images, color swatches and any other inspiration you may have that captures the theme, style or vision you have for your cake. During the appointment you will taste 3 cake flavor combinations* of your choosing. We will discuss your budget and guest count. Your cake should be uniquely crafted to you and together we can find the right balance between size, servings and budget.

What happens after the consultation?

I will provide you with a written summary of the information gathered from our meeting in the form of a quote as well as a contract.  The contract details how to make payment should you wish to proceed with your order. The contract helps us both be on the same page with terms and policies, and also holds me accountable to fulfill my obligations to you.

How does payment work?

After we work out the details of your order, the contract will have payment schedule or you may pay in full. Please note an order is not confirmed until all of the details are worked out and a deposit or payment in full is received. More details are on the wedding contract.

I have a question that is not listed here
