how to order:
In this section I will go through the full process of how to order cakes from consultation to delivery,
Congratulations!!!. Thank you for considering me to create and design your dream cake, with this in mind I only take on a limited number of cakes orders a month, this allows me to give each cake order the time and attention each bespoke cake deserves. Limited availability and popular times of the year, (summer months and Christmas), dates book up fast!! Please contact me by email or telephone to discuss you cake if you have any questions.
A 50% deposit (non-refundable) is required when booking your cake. The balance is required two weeks prior delivery/collection date.
Wedding Cake Consultations and Tastings:
Tastings and consultations can be held in two ways either,
- Tasting Box.
Tasting boxes Consist of 4 cake flavours delivered in a hamper style box and can enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. A tasting box cost €25 per box prior to a deposit paid; This is fully redeemable against the cost of your cake should you choose to order your wedding cake from The Chic Cake Boutique.
We can liaise with clients about your wedding cake design via telephone or email. A tasting box of cake samples is available for collection or delivery.
For those who would like to discuss their wedding cake in person, have a glass of bubbly and chat all about cake!! You can taste up to 5 cake flavours of your choice with a cuppa!!
As part of the design process for your cake, I would ask brides bring along as much inspiration as possible regarding the style of their big day, such as fabrics, colours, flowers etc.
Consultations take place by appointment only and are available for up to 2 people.
Consultations usually last approx. 45 minutes.
There is a charge of €50 per consultation; this is required in full to book your appointment; This fee is fully redeemable against the cost of your cake should you choose to order cakes from The Chic Cake Boutique.
Booking your cake:
Once you have decided on your final design and flavours I will give you a quotation. All quotations are valid for 30 days and a deposit is required to secure the date. If you are happy to proceed I will email you a completed order form along with invoice details. The balance is due 2 weeks before the date of delivery.
Delivery of your cake:
I provide a full delivery and set up service of your cake orders on the morning of your wedding to your chosen venue. This will ensure that the cake is not moved or inappropriate stored overnight. If you are supplying your own cake stand, flowers or any other accessories; it is essential that all accessories are left at the cake table on day of delivery.
Set up of your wedding cake:
There is a charge of €25 for set-up of a standard wedding cake. Set-up for large wedding cakes and dessert tables are charged individually; as these require longer set-up times.
The cost for delivery is calculated (based on Google Maps); on the distance from my residence in Co. Limerick to your venue at 50c per km.
Collection Of your cake:
All cake orders and sweet treats treats are packed in food grade boxes suitable for transportation. Pr-arranged cake collection times is essential for all orders.
In order to transport your cakes you must have adequate space to allow your cake to sit upright (car seats are unsuitable for cake transportation) and your vehicle must be air- conditioned.You should give yourself adequate time to drive very slowly when traveling to your venue.
Once your cake and treats have left our premises, we are not liable for any damage they may incur.
