In and around Richmond, Virginia, we are proud to boast some of the most beautiful wedding locations, utilizing the area’s rich heritage and modern creativity. It’s really a treat for me to visit these locations as I drive around the area delivering wedding cakes. The purpose of my travels, however, is not to sight see, but to get to a location safely, well prepared and on time. Once I arrive I need to work calmly and efficiently to make best use of my time. So, what is included in the delivery fees?
Typically the planning and preparation starts several days earlier with phone calls to locations, caterers wedding planners and florists to ensure everything is in its place at the appropriate time for the cake’s delivery. (Note: We do not call the bride and groom of the delivery time. This is intentional as we would prefer to have them relax and allow us to take care of the details. ) On arrival, the cake is placed on the cake table, constructed if necessary, decorated with flowers and the cake topper, if required, and finished completely. In our opinion, leaving a cake unfinished for the florist to decorate cake or having the caterer move the cake is highly risky, as it may get damaged leaving the cake non-repairable or unsightly. Once the cake is finished being decorated, several items are left to facilitate cutting and serving. Considering most couples keep the top tier for the anniversary, a box is provided for that purpose. We also provide cutting instructions for the caterer and a flavors’ card which lists the cake flavor options for the guests.
When finished and managed correctly, the next people to touch the cake should be the bride and groom……. when they cut the first piece together. Congratulations!!!!!
