THE JOURNEY FROM
ENQUIRY TO CAKE
The Process From Enquiry To Cake
There is no need to feel overwhelmed as Hartt Cakes is here to take all the stress associated with planning your wedding away by making your experience with us as seamless as possible.
I will keep you informed in all the steps of creating and executing your cake. From getting to know you and your wedding, to sharing a special thank you gift. I am here to ultimately create an experience you won't forget - as well as a gorgeous cake that is both impressive and delicious.
As soon as you have booked your venue, it is best to get in touch to check my availability.
I only take on 1-2 wedding cakes a week. As a result, peak dates do get booked up well in advance.
Dates are only secure once the initial deposit if 50% has been paid.
Once your quote is sent to you will be sent a link to book your complimentary quote consultation. This is a great opportunity for us to meet (via zoom) and discuss your quote, get to know you and I can also answer any questions you may have.
After your consultation, your quote will be valid for 10 days. In this time you can sign the contract and pay your deposit.
After securing your wedding date, you will be sent a link to book your complimentary cake design consultation.
A cake design consultation is a great opportunity for me to know exactly what you would like in regard to the cake.
After your consultation, I will get to work on sketch designs and send them to you via email for your approval.
This can take from 4-6 weeks
I will check in with you every month or so leading to the wedding, to answer any questions or queries you may have.
Six weeks before the wedding your remaining balance will also be due.
I will liaise directly with your wedding venue to arrange delivery and set up of your wedding cake, so all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy your wedding day.
try before you buy
If you would like to try my cakes before securing your booking with me, you can order one of my Tasting Boxes.
When you book your wedding cake the £25 receipt of the taster box
will be deducted from your final balance.
Please note that no booking is secure until the 50% non-refundable deposit has been paid.
All of the wedding cakes I make are bespoke, so prices will vary depending on the size of the cake and the complexity of the design.
With so many variables affecting the price I think starting prices can therefore be a bit misleading, so the pricing guide below shows you the average prices you would expect to pay for one of my cakes.
The more elaborate the design, the more you can expect to pay.
Having a mixture of dummy and real tiers will reduce the price slightly.
£175 - £325
£250 - £550
£600 - £1000
£800 - £1200
Becky made our wedding cake, it was the most beautiful wedding cake for our winter wedding. She really listened to our thoughts when we first met and designed a really unique cake that really felt like us. Not to mention it tasted amazing! The design process to the finished product was so smooth. Everyone also said that the cake was simply stunning! Thank you so much – you are incredibly talented!! Cake tasters in the post has been the best post ever and we’re looking forward to finding another reason to order a cake now. Thank you so much

From the moment our tasting box was delivered Becky has been there for us. In our consultation we spoke about it being a non traditional colour with a pop of colour. Becky understood my vision straightway, raw edges, gold detail and gorgeous flowers! My absolute favourite was that each tier was a different flavour and tasted delicious! We had spiced apple, passionfruit and chocolate mud with salted caramel! Thank you Becky!

Becky is so talented, we knew from the moment we met her she was the one! She made us feel at ease and took all our worries and stress away. We absolutely loved our cake - it tasted incredible! I feel she perfectly captured our what we wanted,.
