Order Process & Prices
Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding. You will find lots of information on this page regarding the process of booking your wedding cake. and a rough guide on prices of Melanie's wedding cakes.
Firstly I advise that you book your wedding cake at least 12mths in advance, however ideally 18-24mths before your date for the more popular times of the year.
On initial contact via email or social media please give Melanie the following information so she can
give you a guide price for your wedding cake:
Date of wedding
How many servings you require
Plus any images, mood boards and ideas for your cake.
Once a rough quote has been given and you are happy to proceed, a booking fee of £100 will be required. This is a non-refundable booking retainer fee which ensures your date is booked into Melanie's diary.
Of course if you would prefer to taste Melanie's cakes prior to paying a deposit then please order a cake sample box which can be supplied at a cost £15 collection or £25 posted within the UK.
These are not available between June - September. .
Once you have booked your wedding date and a booking fee deposit has been paid a face to face consultation will be booked in 6 months before your wedding where will will discuss your design and there will be a selection of tasters. Please note that if you are choosing a buttercream/semi naked wedding cake then a face to face consultation will not be needed.
All booked couples will receive a complimentary taster box which will be posted or available for collection.
6 weeks prior to your wedding, flavour choices will need to be confirmed and an invoice for your final balance will be sent. All balances must be paid for 4 weeks prior to your wedding.
