Two weeks prior to your event date, the remaining balance will be due.  We will contact your florist if they are supplying flowers for your cake to make sure that everything will be safe (non toxic or poisonous) otherwise we will discuss alternatives.  The week leading up to your wedding, we will contact your venue to discuss bump-in times and to make sure we can set up your wedding cake as we had originally planned with you.

Contact Cakes of Distinction and make a time to pop in and have a chat. No obligation. We will discuss design ideas, inspiration, colour options and some of the finer details of your order.

You will leave with a design specification of your unique and beautiful cake and we will follow up with a written quote of cost soon after.
