WEDDING CAKE TIMELINE
6 to 9 Months
MAKE YOUR INITIAL INQUIRY
Once you contact The Twisted Baker, we will ask you for a few details and send you an initial rough quote in 2 to 3 business days.
4 to 6 Months
Choosing the flavors of the cake is just as important as choosing the design! Once you have your wedding date and reception site finalized and are ready to talk cake details, give us a call! Tastings are available by appointment only on Sunday afternoons from 2 pm to 5 pm.
BOOK YOUR ORDER
The booking process includes signing a contract which outlines our policies, what each party is responsible for, and payment terms. Once the cake tasting is complete, you will receive a completed order detailing all of the choices you've made and the amount of the deposit. You then have 1 week to review it, make sure you're happy, ask for any changes, sign it and return it. The deposit is due at the time of the booking. Your order is not considered booked until the deposit is received.
2 to 3 Months
Secure non-edible accents (i.e. custom cake topper, brooches, special ribbon) in advance and deliver to The Twisted Baker.
Confirm the sizes of any rental equipment needed and have those items added to your order.
2 to 4 Weeks
FINAL PAYMENT DUE
Payment of the remaining balance on your order is due 4 weeks prior to collection or delivery.
CONFIRM DELIVERY DETAILS
We will reach out to you to confirm the time of the ceremony, reception time, delivery address and the guest count. At this time we may offer suggestions for additional cake servings if needed. I will also contact your venue to confirm delivery, set up times and other arrangements.
The cake will be delivered in several boxes and stacked onsite. Delivery is typically 2 to 3 hours before the ceremony begins.
SAY "I DO" AND EAT CAKE
Enjoy! Eat cake and be married!
The Twisted Baker will provide a complimentary 6" cake tier to be reserved for your one year anniversary. The anniversary tier will be boxed separately (this tier will not be stacked with the cake).
1 to 2 Days after the Wedding
RETURN RENTAL EQUIPMENT
All rental items will be for a three day period, including the day of the event plus two days after. If you have rented equipment from The Twisted Baker, those items must be cleaned and returned no later than 2 days after the wedding. At this point, you will receive the deposit provided to reserve the equipment.
