WEDDING CAKE CONSULTATION & TASTING
Photo by BSC Photo
All consultations are by appointment only at our studio located at 195 Charles Street - Stratford, CT (3/4 mile off exit 30 on I-95).
Please be sure to schedule your tasting at least one week in advance.
During this meeting we will discuss your cake design. So bring some inspiration with you! Although you will be able to look through our portfolio and display cakes, we really want to create a cake personalized to you.
We can draw inspiration from: invitations, color swatches, photos of bridal gowns, flower choices, and anything else that captures your style can inspire the cake design of your dreams. If you have created inspiration boards on Pinterest, please send us a link to your boards prior to your consultation. Your inspiration will guide us to better understand the decor for your event and allow us to create much more than a dessert but a one of a kind edible centerpiece.
During the meeting you will also get a chance to taste some delicious cakes and filings! We offer a de-constructed tasting.
You pick 2 cake flavors and 5 fillings, this way you can mix and match at your will and try multiple flavor combinations.

There is a $40 fee to schedule the tasting appointment.
If you decide to book your wedding at the end of your consultation this fee will be waived.
We allocate 45 minutes for your consultation and tasting.
Please be prompt so we have enough time to discuss every detail of your cake.
We recommend a 2-8 months notice for wedding cakes. But, depending on our availability, we may be able to accommodate last minute orders.
We now offer an overnight shipped tasting for couples that are not able to come to our studio. This option is only available for couples that are in the process of ordering a wedding cake for 60 servings or more. The price is $60 for the tasting and shipping and it includes the same options as the tasting at our studio.
Once you have shared your inspiration and vision, the design process will start to take place.
Our portfolio exemplifies our meticulous attention to detail, different techniques and style that sets Lovely Cakes apart, but you are not at all limited to these designs.
We aim to achieve a clean and elegant design that truly reflects you and your event. We are able to work with fondant or buttercream, with fresh or sugar flowers. Our sugar flowers can be realistic or whimsical. We also offer wedding cupcake towers.
Sometimes we can achieve a final design concept during the consultation and sometimes the process requires extra research and a few extra sketches and tweaks, so we can be sure that your cake will be just right. I am elated to work hand-in-hand with my clients on this process and our goal is for you to love your cake!
From beginning to end, I want your experience to be effortless, stress-free, and, yes, fun!
I hope to create the absolute perfect cake - for you.
In addition to your wedding cake, Lovely Cakes is happy to prepare your Bridal Shower cake, Groom’s Cake and celebration cakes to come!
We deliver everywhere in Connecticut, Westchester County - NY, and the New York Metro area.
