Wedding consultations are by appointment only and these can be made by telephone, in person or by filling in our online contact form. We do not charge for this service.
The consultation will take place at our boutique cake & chocolate shop and this will enable you to see the sample display cakes and gain a sense of the cake scales and size. We will provide a selection of cake samples along with a pot of tea or coffee. It can be really helpful if you know the following before arranging a consultation with us:
• The date and venue of your wedding
• The approximate number of guests
• Any colours, themes, styling, floral detail, wedding invite inspiration that you like
Following your consultation, Poppy Pickering will then provide you with your own personal wedding cake sketch, an individual designed colour/mood board and your cake quote.
We normally ask for a 12 month+ lead time when ordering wedding cakes, however, depending on our schedule and the design we may be able to accept orders at shorter notice.
Cakes will sometimes contain in-edible items such as ribbons, brooches, flowers, diamanté detail and feathers etc. these items must be removed before serving and they will be noted on the cake information sheet which will be delivered along with your cake or highlighted to you upon the cake collection.
Often a wedding cake is requested to be decorated with fresh flowers, we can liaise with your florist, however it is best for your florist to provide the flowers to allow for the continuity. We can arrange/attach premade flower sprays to your cake on delivery however PLEASE NOTE some flowers are not suitable for use as cake decoration. Ask your florist for details on the flowers toxicity. Poppy Pickering will not be liable for any contamination to your wedding cake that may arise from the misuse of fresh flowers.
Several of our cakes contain nuts as an ingredient therefore we cannot guarantee that our kitchen is nut free. If you have a nut allergy please contact us to discuss your requirements.
All of our cakes, biscuits and chocolates are produced in an environment where gluten, nuts, milk and eggs are present. We cannot guarantee that a product will be 100% free hence you must let us know at the time of ordering if you are intolerant to any of these ingredients.
We do not offer egg or dairy free cakes
