We offer a free initial phone consultation. This is a great way to chat with our founder Pia Cato about what you are really looking for in a wedding cake. Together you and Pia can talk about styles, themes and more. Plus she can provide an in depth personalised quote/s via email after the call.
Our most popular option is the Design and Tasting consultation. These are held at the elegant four star Queens Hotel in Cheltenham. Over a cup of tea, glass of champagne or even a beer, this consultation is the perfect meeting to discuss your wedding day and design for your dream wedding cake in detail.
You will explore the wonderful types of cake finishes on offer. The gorgeous decorations available. The different flavours you can have. The number of tiers you would like and much more. Taking your ideas and inspiration, Pia will look at incorporating all of these elements into something truly wonderful and unique for you. Pia will make use of her trusty sketch book and modern computer programmes.
During the consultation you will also be able to try four of our signature Vanilla Pod Bakery cake flavours. There will also be our wedding cake portfolios and bridal magazines to flick through. As well as our sugar flower portfolio and ribbon swatch book.
The consultations are for you and your fiancé. However, if you would like your parents or extended wedding party to join, then please let us know as we are more than happy to accommodate up to 6 guests. Additional boxes of cake flavours can also be purchased.
We strongly recommend this type of consultation if you are looking at commissioning a highly bespoke cake.
Virtual Cake Design Consultations are the perfect type of meeting if you can’t get to Cheltenham and want to have a chat with Pia face-to-face. We hold our consultations either via FaceTime or Zoom. It is a wonderful chance to explore the many options available. View any inspirational Pinterest boards you may have, and design your beautiful wedding cake via the power of the internet.
Our postal cake taster boxes are the perfect addition to the Initial Wedding Cake Phone Consultation and the Virtual Cake Design Consultations. Each box contains four signature Vanilla Pod Bakery cake flavours of your choice and you can order as many as you wish. Enjoy just the two of you or get your wedding party involved, crack open the bubbles and host a fabulous wedding cake tasting party.
