What to expect…
This article is in response to a young couple who asked why we recommend, and What To Expect At Your Consultation & Tasting
When you first arrive at your consultation and tasting you will be greeted with a very warm welcome, and sit down to the variety of cake flavours that you have chosen to sample, as we mentioned these cakes are made fresh for you, not bulk brought or made months before and frozen, they are all made the night before you arrive, to ensure you sample only the freshest of cakes.
Getting to know you…
To accompany your cakes, you will be offered fresh coffee, tea or bottled water. While sampling your cakes we will get to know you a little better and discuss your wedding plans, where your reception will be held? the number of guests you are having? time you are getting married and what time your guests will arrive at your reception? As we will need to have your cake ready and setup at your venue before your guests arrive.
Once we have this information we will then move onto discussing your wedding cake. From the previous information we would have determined what size cake you may require, and discussed this with you, all the time keeping in with your suggested wedding cake design and style.
It is a this point all the finer details about your cake will be covered, Style, Size, Flavours, Fresh Flowers or Sugar Flowers, will you be keeping the top tier, will you require a cake stand, all your questions will be answered, and we will also make some suggestions to ensure you only get the perfect wedding cake.
Now that we have this information, and while you are still enjoying your cake and coffee we will provide you with an official quote, your quote will cover everything that has been discussed, there will be no hidden charges, or unexpected fees, you quote will be the final price for your wedding cake, and the deposit required to confirm your booking.
As you now have your quote and are happy to proceed, you will be able to transfer your deposit and we will start to make you a formal agreement between Rimmas Cakes and yourselves, this agreement is to ensure both parties are happy and what you can expect from Rimmas Cakes. There are also a couple of great points in this agreement for you to mention to your venue, when it comes time to cutting and serving your cake.
Take the cake and eat it…
Now that everything is in place, you will be given a copy of your quote, agreement and a receipt for your deposit with the balance owing and date this is required, all this presented in a beautiful Rimmas Cakes Perth folder, and the best part any cake that is left over is boxed and yours to take to enjoy later.
Your Consultation and Tasting should take about 1 – 1.5 hours, but this is only a guide and we will work with you as long as it takes to get everything right for your special day.
I hope this answer some of those little questions of What To Expect At Your Consultation & Tasting, and we invite you to come along and enjoy our friendly and relaxed home and let Rimmas Cakes Perth make your Edible Incredible.
