A few couples have asked me how most cake designers calculate their delivery and set up costs. So I wanted to write this blog post to explain how it was being done. I hope you’l find it helpful.
I think naked cakes cannot just be dropped off at the venue, they need to be set up and decorated there and then, the main reason being the cake, being uniced will dry out if left out too long same applies to the fresh fruit and flowers we use for decoration. Secondly, it should be placed in its final spot and not moved about after set up.
As you can imagine, weekend or not, driving around London can be tricky (all that traffic and all those restrictions!) so it takes us approximately 3 hours to get to the venue, deliver and set up a naked cake. Obviously, it has to be reflected in the price.
So here is a recent one. Such fun!
Cutting and placing the flowers on the cake.
Placing the fruit and dusting with icing sugar.
Placing the cute toppers (awww). So Mr French Made, what do you think?
Adding the final touches. Tadaaaaaaa!
