What to Expect at Your Consultation
Here at Sweet Eden Bakeshop, we are honored to be a part of your celebrations. We want to create something truly unique to you and your event. Whether your design is inspired by a picture in our photo gallery, a magazine, invitations, a specific pattern, or even your own creation, we will assist you in creating your dream cake.
Consultations are mainly done for wedding cakes, but they can be scheduled for anyone with an event that has over 100 servings. At your consultation, you will have one-on-one face time with your cake designer. We will brainstorm and discuss themes, colors, and designs to fit your budget. We will also determine the flavors and size of the cake. You can expect this to take about 45 minutes.
Design consultations are free, but they must be scheduled. If you would like to taste cakes during your consultation, then there is a $30 fee. This deposit will be applied to the final cost of your order if you choose to purchase a wedding cake. Keep in mind that this fee is not refundable. Your consultation includes a follow-up email which briefly summarizes our discussion to make sure all the details are correct. The email will be sent within 48 hours and will provide a pricing quote for your order.
What to Bring to Your Consultation
You may bring two guests with you. Color fabric swatches, ribbon for the cake, event invitations, cake images, lists of ideas, patterns, or other inspiration pieces are desirable. If you already have your venue booked, it is useful to bring the address of the reception and the names and phone numbers of anyone we may need to coordinate with, like an event planner or florist.
If you have a smaller event where consultation is not necessary; but you would like to try before you buy, you can order a tasting box. Choose any three flavors of cake and fillings. The tasting portions are about the size of a large cupcake. All the cakes are frosted in vanilla buttercream frosting. Tasting boxes are $30 and can be picked up with 72 hours' notice.
