To the staff at Chocolate Zen:
My husband and I would like to thank you for the amazing job you did on our wedding cake on April 19th. It was beautiful and delicious and we received many compliments about it. Also, thank you for the delicious chocolates you included, we were touched by your kind gesture. We are very happy that your business was a part of our special day and will certainly be recommending you to others. We included pictures of our cake with its final touches for your records. Thanks again.

CAKE DESIGN: CREATING YOUR PERFECT WEDDING CAKE
Cake size is determined by the number of guests attending your wedding and when the cake will be served.
Typically, a greater amount of cake is required when served as dessert after your main course compared to later in the evening.
Adding fresh fruit, flowers and ribbon are a beautiful way to add color, texture and visual appeal to your cake.
Flowers: Make a list of flowers that you intend to use at your wedding along with your florist’s name and contact information.
Wedding Colours: Know your wedding colours before you meet with your cake designer: bring along a sample of fabric or colour swatch that you are working with if possible.
Theme: Bring ideas, drawings, samples to integrate into your cake design.
Pictures: Save pictures of cakes that you like and take them with you to your wedding cake consultation: these pictures help understand your sense of style and personal taste to design an original “one‐of‐a‐kind” creation just for you.
Flavours: We will provide you with a variety of torte samples so that you pick your favourite, delicious flavour. If you are choosing a tiered style of cake you have the option to pick a variety of flavours: one for each tier.
Our six most popular wedding cake flavours are: Lemon Raspberry, Zuccotto, Chocolate Zen, Strawberries and Cream, Sacrapantina, and the Chocolate Truffle Torte. You are free to switch out any of these flavours to try some other flavours if you wish – just let us know and we’ll have your choice of torte flavours ready for you to try when you meet us for your first consultation.
Venue: Does your cake need to travel far? Is the reception area outside, inside, air‐conditioned? Answers to these questions may affect the flavour, design, and set‐up of your cake.
You will also want to check with your venue if wedding cakes are permitted and what rules/regulations there may be for serving your cake.
Ordering – We recommend ordering your wedding cake 4 to 6 months in advance. If your wedding is taking place on a long‐weekend or other special time of year such as Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve you will want to pre‐order your cake 10 to 12 months in advance.
Deposit: If you like what you see, we require a $200 non – refundable deposit to save the date of you wedding. The $200 will then be put towards the final total of your wedding cake.
Write your questions down before you arrive at to your cake consultation so that all of your concerns are addressed. We look forward to helping you with all of your wedding cake questions.
