Once you have set the date for the wedding, have an approximate guest list, and you’ve chosen the colour and theme for your special occasion... it’s time to organise your cake.
Booking your cake 3-6 months prior to your Wedding will ensure the decorator is available (especially for spring and summer weddings). At Delaney’s all the work on display and in our albums is our own work. If looking around, ensure that the work is the decorators own.
Make an appointment for a consultation with the decorator/designer. Bring to this appointment, any pictures you have of cakes that you like, colour samples, and flower choices, together with any theme you may be trying to carry through to the cake.
Ask for samples of the cakes to ensure you’re happy with taste as well as look.
At Delaney’s Cakes, an hour consultation is provided for your appointment, which includes cake tasting. It is appreciated that if you can’t make this appointment or are running late, if you could please telephone to let us know.
Having your appointment on a Saturday means that you enjoy the chance of seeing all the cakes that are ready for collection and delivery that day. But as Saturday doesn’t suit everyone, Delaney’s are happy to schedule a consultation for another day, when you are available.
“why not email us your favourites before your appointment or save them to your thumb drive and bring them when you come in”
What size cake will I need
The cake size normally depends on whether your cake is for desert or to have with coffee, and whether you want to keep the top tier for an anniversary. Your designer can guide you to what size cake you will need. As a guide, an average two tier cake should provide approx 100 coffee pieces or 50-60 desert pieces.
How much will it cost?
Delaney’s cakes cost an average of AU$160.00 to $180.00 per tier, so expect to pay approx AU$360.00 for a two tier cake. Pricing will change dependant on design and flowers.
Do I need to pick up my wedding cake?
Delaney’s offer free delivery in the Wollongong Area, and charges a small delivery fee outside of this area. The last thing you want to worry about on your wedding day is transporting the cake!
What flavours can I have?
Delaney’s have 10 flavours of cake to choose from for you wedding, as the cake must have a stable centre for transportation. We offer Chocolate Mud, Caramel Mud, White Mud, Marble Mud (any two of the mud cakes swirled), Jaffa mud, Vanilla butter, Marble butter, Chocolate butter , Orange & Poppyseed, and Fruitcake.
