Where do I start in choosing a design for my wedding cake?
A good idea is to incorporate a theme, colours or flowers into the cake which is in keeping with what you might already be doing. Researching cakes on the internet and in magazines will give you some inspiration, unfortunately the list of designs is endless and it can easily get too much so keep your ideas simple and we can do the rest.
How big does my cake need to be?
The number of guests usually determines the size of the cake however just because you have a small wedding doesn’t mean you have to have a small cake and visa versa. At the end of the day its up to you. See our price guide for portion sizes.
Can I have different flavours in my wedding cake?
Wedding cakes of two or more tiers can have a different flavour on each tier ie four tiers four flavours
How much should I spend?
There is no limit to what you can spend generally the number of people attending your reception is a good place to start making sure you have enough to go round. Prices vary depending on size, design, shape, flavours, level of difficulty and time involved. See our price guide for more details and portion sizes.
Can I see my cake before it is delivered?
Yes you are more than welcome to come and view your cake the evening before your wedding day or alternatively we can e-mail you a picture. just let us know in advance.
What about delivery costs?
Celebration cakes incur an additional delivery cost. Wedding cakes over €300 are delivered and set up free of charge at the venue within a twenty mile radius of keshcarrigan additional charges are based on the amount spent and mileage ie a cake of €600 or more would be delivered free within a 40 mile radius of keshcarrigan. It is not our intention to incur extra charges if they are not necessary but to deliver value for money.
When should I be thinking about ordering my cake?
Atleast 3 – 6 months notice for wedding cakes is advised and for the summer months and especially bank holiday weekends 6 – 12 months is advised . The sooner you confirm your order the sooner we can guarantee your chosen date. designs do not have to be finalised at the time of placing an order and can be done at a later date.
When can I have a consultation to discuss my ideas?
Virtually anytime, we do not have set hours and can arrange an appointment at a time that suits you. Alternatively you can meet us at one of the many wedding fairs that we attend, it’s a perfect time to sample and see our display of cakes.
