We get so many emails, calls and comments about how to order a cake, how far in advance should you order a cake, what is the process for ordering a bespoke cake…etc, etc. So, we thought it might be helpful to share some of those answers with you here on our blog and give you all the tasty details about our tasty cakey process!
How far in advance should I order my cake?
We get asked this question soon much! The answer is, the sooner the better! We always do our best to accommodate each order but, we can only take a limited amount per day so dates become fully booked quite quickly.
We currently have bookings up until 2021 so booking early is advised.
Here at GBC, all of our cakey creations begin with four tasty layers of cake, deliciously filled with three layers of fabulous fillings.
How each of our cakes is finished totally depends upon what you order. Our signature collection is are our most popular flavoured cakes that can be be found regularly within our bakery. Simple, tasty designs that are full of flavour and perfect for any occasion.
Our signature range can be found on our online store and features all of your favourite flavours such as Red Velvet, Chocolate Peanut butter and more! We also offer a customisable fondant plaques as well as personalised toppers which are a great way to modify our signature bakes and all of which are available to order online.
Simply follow the link, select your design, size, date for collection, any add ons and voila! Easy peasy!
Should you require something with a little more decoration or personalisation, you may be interested in our themed celebration cakes which also feature on our online store!
Bespoke Celebration Cakes
Looking for a fondant covered design or something specific to fit your special event? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you require, how many your cake should feed, the date of your event and what you have in mind in terms of design. From here we can assist you further with a bespoke creation.
Please note that all bespoke work is priced higher than that of our signature designs found on our online store. All work will be priced upon size and design.
Ordering a wedding cake is a little different to ordering any other cake we offer. Check out our three step process below!
Step 1: Once you know your wedding date and venue, call us on 0191 2302151 or email email@example.com to arrange your initial wedding consultation. During this appointment we will discuss every detail of your wedding as well as any initial ideas and thoughts you may have. Please feel free to bring along any swatches, stationery or images that may help us to visualise your dream. (We often work from Pinterest so feel free to create a page on which you can display your ideas!)
Step 2: Once we have agreed/created a design, we will send you an email confirming all of your details along with the price of your package. So to proceed with your booking and reserve your date, we require a deposit of 25%. Once your deposit has been received we will then arrange a cake tasting appointment. Its at this appointment where we will finalise details and answer any questions or queries you may have.
Step 3: Two weeks prior to your wedding date, your remaining balance will be required. We will then commence working on your design and organise delivery with your venue as previously arranged in your contract/terms and conditions.
