Your Wedding Cake
from Selection to Reception
The question was asked; the answer was, “Yes!” What’s next?
Of course, next to the new bride and her gown the wedding cake is the center piece of the of the reception. It’s the dessert that punctuates the start of this wonderful journey you are taking with the one you love. Here are 4 steps to make sure your wedding cake perfectly reflects the celebration of this journey:
Select a Date and Place for Your Reception
Where and when your reception is the first thing we must know. We want to have the time to create and deliver the cake of your dreams. If we can’t, we’ll tell you up front.
Once we know your date and venue, we’ll know what we’re working with. If you’re having an outdoor wedding at Ivy Creek Family Farm in July when temperatures typically flirt with 90 degrees, we’ll have to do some planning to make sure your cake doesn’t have a meltdown.
With over 250 wedding cakes successfully created and delivered to nearly all of the possible reception venues in the Asheville and surrounding areas, we have a pretty good idea of how to overcome challenges and make your wedding cake a success.
Call to Schedule a Cake Consultation
This is where the fun begins. Call a La Cupcakes! At 828-418-3169 for a to schedule a free consultation. One of our Lead Bakers will answer your questions, then ask a few about your plans, the number of guests and your vision of the perfect wedding cake. You can look at pictures, see our flavor list, talk about any dietary preferences for your cake.
But what about price? Once we know the date, the venue, and have a good idea of your vision, all we’ll need is a rough guest count. We can then offer can offer a price range for your cake. Once your guests have sent RSVPs and our plan is solid, we can give you an exact amount.
Sample the Cakes
At a La Cupcakes! We have over 200 flavors and can accommodate special dietary preferences like gluten, dairy, and/or sugar-free and vegan. And if you want something that isn’t on our list, please tell us. Our Bakers love to try new creations.
For Tastings, we recommend that you purchase our mini cupcakes and take home to try at your leisure. We recommend 1 per person of each flavor you select to try. Once you have chosen your flavors, we schedule the consultation to talk Cake!
The Reception and Cake Service
Ok, we get it. Why should you pay us to serve your cake when Aunt Martha is just sitting there looking for ways to help? We agree.
This probably isn’t Aunt Martha’s first time serving wedding cake. But if it is, we’ll be happy to give her instructions on how to cut and present elegant slices of this intricate creation without reducing this "symbol of your love" to a pile of crumbs.
So, one of you asked the question and the other said, “yes.” First, congratulations! This is just the beginning of a wonderful journey.
Now, let’s talk "wedding cake." Just call a La Cupcakes! at 828-418-3169 to start the process.
