Tips for Choosing a Wedding Cake… Let The Journey Begin.

Tips for Choosing a Wedding Cake… Let The Journey Begin.

When planning a Wedding and choosing Wedding Cake can be approached in different ways.
For some people, planning a Wedding is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream, for others, it feels stressful and like one long to do list….. (any of that sound familiar?)

We meet couples who fall into both ends of this spectrum and everything in between.
You may be wanting someone to come alongside, and join you in your whirlwind of ideas and excitement when choosing your wedding cake.


If you are slightly unsure what you want, where to start and what on earth all the fuss is about! We’re more than happy to guide you, to be the creative drive behind creating a Wedding cake, both you, and your guests will remember.

At Elizabeth Harris…Wedding cakes make us smile, they are the beating heart of our skill set and creativity.

So here are 4 things which will help get you started.

1. Whats your ‘theme’ for the wedding?

What’s on your Pinterest board or in your scrapbook?
When we work with couples creating their wedding cake, being shown ideas for the other components of their day can be really helpful. Themes, magazine pages, Pinterest boards are a brilliant place to start.

We want to create a cake which reflects YOUR day, taking bits from existing ideas can be a fantastic springboard to getting us to the cake which is right for YOU. Something which symbolizes you as a couple or what the day represents.


2. Ask yourself a few questions….

Are you having a very traditional Wedding?

Do you like simple and sleek?

Ruffles or sequins?

Do you want something totally unusual and personalised?

All these ideas are a great place to start.

We have been creating bespoke Wedding cakes for 12 years, but we haven’t made your wedding cake yet – we want to work alongside you, so we can make your dreams a reality.


3. The eating part.

Although the cake must, of course, be a show stopper, We want to create something delicious too!

How many does it need to feed? What do you want it to taste like?

At a consultation, we can also provide some taste samples. Let’s face it, one person’s idea of an amazing chocolate cake, may not be yours, so let’s get that part right too!

You may wish to consider a variety of cakes to keep everyone happy, or which complements the food you are serving.



4. Come for a Consultation – We would love to meet you!

A consultation involves us sitting down together, having a chat, and getting a feel for what you want us to create. You may arrive with three images, say you want a mixture of the three, tell me the flavour you’d like, and off we go, done.


You may arrive with an array of ideas and need us to help focus them down, and work out exactly what you want, We can help you with this……That’s our job!

We can, of course, communicate via e-mail and over the phone, but you can’t really beat a face to face meeting. A consultation gives both you and us, the confidence that we are on the same page.

Next steps

After the consultation, you can either confirm what it is you want there and then, or, go away for a few days to have a think and then let us know.

We’re never keen to rush people, take your time, let’s get it how YOU want it.

Have a browse at our gallery, get some ideas together, and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

You can contact us by e-mail on the contact page.

    Hi Lizzie,
    Your cakes look stunning! My partner Pete and I are getting married next year (11th July) at the Sefton Park Palm House and were wondering if we could arrange a meeting with you to discuss our cake. We live over in Manchester so would it be possible to arrange a weekend meeting? We’re quite open to ideas but we could always bring our ‘Save the Date’/Invitation so you can get a feel for our theme.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this message, hopefully hear from you soon!

      Hi Phil,

      I am so sorry I’ve not seen your message earlier, it didn’t come through to my email like it should have? I’m just on the back end of my website and founds lots of messages to my horror!
      Would you and your partner still like o come for a consultation?
      Again I’m very sorry

      Best wishes
      Lizzie x
