The Cake Process

I truly believe behind every cake, there is a story to tell. So with that, there is so much to the cake process for when booking your wedding cake than just designs and flavors. I want your cake to be able to express every feeling and emotion you are aiming to evoke for for your special day. 

Planning a wedding isn't always easy, but I aim to make this part of the process as sweet and simple as possible! Pun totally intended! 

The Process

Step One

Love my work or referred to me by a friend? Wonderful! I can not wait to chat cake with you!

The first step is to fill out my "cake inquiry form" so I can gather all the information needed for your event and to ensure I have your date available. 



Step Two

Let's get to know each other a bit! Tell me about yourself, you as a couple, what feeling you'd like to evoke, elements, etc. From here send me all the inspiration you have for your day. It may be from your stationary, color palette, florals, textures in your surroundings, feeling, little details and so much more! The more I have to work with, the more your design will be unique to you! This will also help me gather as much information needed to provide a rough quote. Don't worry, I can always alter the design if anything changes from our initial chat!

Step Three

After chatting the details, I'll provide you with a rough quote. If everything looks great and you are ready to book, a $400 non refundable deposit is required to book and lock in your date. Dates can not be held with out a deposit. You can wait to book after having a tasting box in our quarterly rounds, but you do risk the chance of your date being taken. I only take 2 to 3 weddings per weekend to give each couple my utmost attention, so if you know you'd like me to design your cake, reserve your date as soon as possible.
From here it gets to the really fun part!

Step Four

Time for the fun part, tasting cake! Tasting Boxes are typically available January, February, March, June, July & November.

Stay tuned for when the Pre Sale goes live on Instagram @teehancakedesign.

My tasting boxes include eight different flavors from my signature cake menu. Each flavor is balanced with sweet, salty, sour, crunchy and straight up indulgence. Every cake is made with the highest quality of ingredients, from the freshest fruit, to the finest chocolate, we never skimp on anything here. Unfortunately I am unable to provide custom tasting boxes as well as tastings outside of my selected dates. This prevents me from having excess food waste which is something I passionately care about after working in the food industry for so long and i greatly appreciate your understanding. 

Tasting boxes are $75

Step Five

Onto the next best part, our design consultation! We chatted a bit in the beginning on the feeling you'd like to evoke and some design details here or there but this is where it all comes to life! We will go over each and every detail of your cake, talk placement, cake stands, toppers, flavor choices and get a more accurate price based on everything we discussed. After our consultation, I'll draw up a rough sketch of your design so you can have a slight visual on what your cake may look like.  Don't worry, if something doesn't seem quite right I can always adjust until it's exactly what you envisioned. Please note, some designs are difficult to translate onto paper so you'll have to trust me! From here I'll work with your event coordinator, florist, and venue on all the delivery and set up details.

Step Six

The countdown to diving into your cake begins! You will not need to worry about a thing, as I will be working behind the scenes with your planner, venue, florist and so much more of your team to ensure everything comes together seamlessly.
Thirty days prior to your wedding day the final remaining balance is due.
I will also be in touch to go over final details of the design, any last minute additions, timing, flavors and confirming all of those are correct.
Now sit back, relax, enjoy your day and let's eat cake!!!
