Custom Wedding Cakes - The Wedding Cake Process
Our wedding and celebration cakes are made from scratch with the best quality ingredients and are custom designed, both inside and out. We love to work with our clients to create a cake that reflects their style and event. From your initial consultation to the moment you slice into your wedding cake, we strive to give you the best experience possible.
Consultation and Tasting
The first step is to have a consultation. Fill out the Wedding Questionnaire to start the consultation process. Be sure to let us know your wedding date, guest count, venue, theme or any design / style elements you will be using. Once the basics are covered we will schedule a tasting. At your tasting, you can sample up to four cake flavors and five filling flavors.
Our tastings are deconstructed with un-iced cakes and fillings separate to allow you to mix and match several different flavor pairings. We are also happy to work with you on custom flavor requests. Tastings are $30, paid in advance, which is refunded towards the cost of your cake should you choose to book with us. Tastings may be scheduled during the week as we block off weekends for deliveries.
Designing Your Cake
After your consultation and tasting, we will create a sketch of your cake based on what we have already discussed. Then we can tweak the sketch until it is the exact cake you want. We want you to love your wedding cake! Our buttercream is naturally a soft ivory color because of the natural color of real butter and vanilla. Please keep this in mind during the design process. If you want a stark white cake, fondant may be the best option for you.
Deposit and Payment Information
For all orders, we require a retainer fee of 50% of the price of your cake to save the date. This is non-refundable and due at the time of booking. Two weeks prior to your event date, the remaining 50% is due. Tiers of Joy is a home cake studio and in order to produce the best quality wedding cakes we limit the quantity of cakes we produce each week. So we encourage you to book quickly.
We always highly suggest having your wedding cake delivered as we can insure that your cake arrives safe and sound and is set up properly. We deliver to the greater Orlando, Florida. We charge a delivery fee of $1.50 per mile, with the first 5 miles free.
