Wedding Cake Tasting and Design Sessions

Wedding Cake Tasting and Design Sessions in London

A wedding cake tasting session and design session, in my opinion, is one of the most exciting parts about planning your wedding. When else in life will you have the opportunity to taste some delicious cake samples and decide which you’d like to offer to your guests on your big day? Unless you’re a wedding planner maybe? Or a party planner? Or a cake maker!

Why have a wedding cake tasting and design session?
So firstly, why have a cake tasting? Why not just choose a cake and be done with it? Well, firstly because the opportunity is there! Take it. But of course, it’s a great opportunity to meet with a potential wedding supplier and get to know how they work, as well as how the cake will taste. I think it’s so important to hire wedding suppliers for your big day that ‘get you’. That share your values and that understand your vision for what you want from your wedding. This is, of course, something you just can’t really get over the phone or in an email.

My cake tastings are also cake design consultations, where we can look through your ideas, inspiration and vision for your wedding cake and I can get a real idea on what you want and what you don’t. I will sketch out a rough idea to make sure we are on the same page and then, following our meeting, I’ll go off to produce a digital sketch of your wedding cake design idea.

Oh great! Do we get free cake at our wedding cake tasting and design session?

Free cake did you say? I’m afraid, not free. The best quality cakes certainly don’t come for free as a lot of prep work goes into the cake samples I provide and digital sketches I create. The cost for my tasting and design sessions is £50 which is now deductible from the final amount of the wedding cake if you choose to go ahead and book me as your cake designer. This cost includes your choice of four cake samples from my cake menu and your wedding cake digital sketch idea tweaked until you’re happy with it and ready to book.

I also offer a full wedding cake Q&A session to my couples. Ask me anything at all about your wedding cake and I will answer! I think transparency is so important as a wedding supplier. I truly love creating my cakes for a couple’s big day and I want to be on hand to help you as much as possible to create a special day that is unique to you. I’ll advise you what works, what doesn’t work and what I have learnt from working in the industry for five years.

And I am also honoured to announce that I have a new tasting and design consultation venue; The Andaz Hotel, Liverpool Street. I am preferred cake supplier for the venue and I adore their unique and stunning setting in the city. The hotel really is a hidden gem and I’m so excited to be hosting my couple’s there. If you’d like to learn more about what wedding cake flavours I offer you can view my menu. If you have any questions about taster and design sessions or about my wedding cakes, pop me an email. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. K x

About the writer and cake enthusiast…

Hi! I’m Katie and I have been fully cake obsessed since, forever…

Malarkey Cakes is built on a mixture of all my passions. My work is inspired by my background in art and design and I’m honoured to make wedding cakes for couples in love in London and the South East.

I’m passionate about blogging to share my knowledge and give guidance on the ins and out of ordering a wedding cake, making the most of it and making sure it gets the attention it deserves. I also share my tips on wedding planning and team up with fellow suppliers I am lucky enough to work with and who I highly recommend.

When I’m not designing, making or eating cake, you’ll find me trying out new food in London’s amazing restaurants, drinking great coffee, taking in stunning architecture, on long walks, smashing a decent weights workout or exploring the world.
