for it to be made
“I phoned The Frostery with a specific request. I was sent a beautiful artistic drawing of my request and various samples of delicious cake to try, delivered in beautiful gift boxes. I never expected the cake to look as lifelike as it did. It certainly was, and still is, a talking point and highlight of our special day.”
"We live abroad and planning our wedding was a challenge. The Frostery's website really helped us choose our cake. Communication via email, telephone and face to face made the whole process easy. The finished cake was delivered on time and looked just as beautiful as we hoped it would be."
If you want us to make your wedding cake, you are invited to a design consultation with Suzanne at our cake studio in Uppermill, Saddleworth. Come along, sample our cake and chat about your ideas and the design inspiration for your wedding. Often the design of a wedding cake will be inspired by elements from the wedding, particularly things like lace detail from the wedding dress, flowers, colour theme, a monogram or design features from the wedding stationery. To get the most out of the consultation we would advise you to think about these details before arranging your appointment. There is a consultation fee of £50 which is deducted from the cost of the cake if you place an order. Please consider that the demand for our cakes is high, particularly for bank holidays and the peak summer season, therefore if you wish you can "save the date" in our diary with a £250 non-refundable deposit against your cake and have your design consultation later to avoid disappointment.
During the consultation we will offer you a selection of different flavours of our delicious cake to try. In a multi-tiered wedding cake you can choose to have a single flavour or a combination of different flavours. Our sponge based wedding cakes are coated in a decadent chocolate ganache, creating a superior look and taste to your final cake.
The design consultation is where your ideas and inspiration will be transformed into your own bespoke cake design. At this stage there is no obligation and you are welcome to take some time before deciding whether or not you want us to make your cake.
We will sketch out ideas for you which upon payment of a deposit become yours to keep as a beautiful memento. You also have the option of purchasing an illustration of your cake design.
Work on the sugar decoration will start a few weeks before the wedding day but the sponge cake will always be freshly baked early in the week of the wedding. It is then filled with flavoured buttercream and coated in a layer of luxurious chocolate before being covered in icing. If you have chosen to have our fruit cake it will have been maturing over a period of months, and when ready will be covered with a layer of almond paste and sugar paste or royal icing.
As the day approaches, our small team of artisan cake decorators will carefully decorate and assemble the cake before the finishing detail is applied.
You can choose to have your wedding cake personally delivered and set-up by The Frostery team. We can deliver nationwide subject to availability. We will liase with the event team at your venue to ensure the cake is in the right place at the right time together with any special instructions. With years of experience of transporting delicate cakes, you can rest assured that your cake will arrive safely and will be perfectly set-up at your wedding venue.
From the beginning; the consultation and booking process, to the end; confirmation and delivery of the cake, everything was so easy, hassle free and relaxed. All that a stressed bride-to-be could ask for. Nothing was too much trouble and communication with Suzanne was so easy. Her work is absolutely stunning and so personal. Would recommend her to all my friends and family.”
