Information

Tasting and consultation

To arrange a complimentary cake tasting and consultation, please email cakes@designercakesbyelle.co.uk with your requirements including your wedding date, venue and approximate numbers or complete our contact form. At your consultation you can try samples, talk through design ideas, colours, size of cake required etc.

If you have ideas to incorporate such as images, flowers, colour/material swatches etc please feel free to forward these or bring them with you. Alternatively, this meeting can be a complete starting point in the design development and decisions do not need firming up until nearer the time.

Following discussions, a proposal will be provided capturing the detail and including our terms and conditions.

When it isn’t possible to meet in person, tasting boxes can be posted out. Please ask if you would like more information on this.

Delivery and collection

We provide a delivery and set up service at your venue by prior arrangement. Please contact us for a quotation and availability. There may be an additional delivery charge, dependent on the distance from Kingston, Surrey, to be advised on request at booking. If your cake design requires fresh flowers, your chosen florist will supply these and we can liaise directly with them to co-ordinate the design.

Cake stands

We are able to hire out a range of elegant cake stands.  Please enquire for more information on these. We require a security deposit and stands must be returned the week following or by prior arrangement. 

Lead times

We always do our utmost to accommodate requests. To avoid disappointment, please book your cake as soon as possible.  We recommend e.g. 6-12 months in advance. However, we are sometimes able to accommodate requests with less notice so please do enquire.

Deposits and balances

A booking is only secured following the confirmation of receipt of a 50% non-refundable deposit retainer. The remaining balance must be cleared six weeks before delivery or collection. Short notice orders that are placed within six weeks for wedding cakes and two weeks for celebration cakes are an exception to this and need to be paid for in full upon ordering. The price stated in your proposal is valid for a period of three months.

Please contact us with any queries or requests for more information.
