Congratulations on your engagement! We’re thrilled that you’re interested in letting Parcha Sweets provide the perfect accompaniment to your perfect day.
Each and every wedding cake is one of the most important creations a pastry chef will ever compose. Every single one is a unique work of art, allowing the chef to work together with the bride and groom to showcase her creativity and talent in something special and personal. It would be an honor to help you create an unforgettable cake that reflects your taste and style while fitting within your budget.
We feature over 12 artisan flavors ranging from a sophisticated brandy-soaked butter cake to a romantic red velvet creation. Just point your browser to www.parchasweets.com/our_menu to view our full menu. All of our cupcake flavors are available for wedding cakes. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, don’t worry! You can always choose to create your own. We can even match your wedding colors! We can also adapt recipes to account for any dietary restrictions or preferences. Visit our Facebook photo album to see a few examples!
Your wedding cake consultation includes a tasting of assorted flavors and a beverage per person. So we can offer you the most exclusive, personalized tasting possible. The first consultation is free. There is a nominal fee per couple for the second and third consultations, that can be applied to the total order.
Preparing for Your Consultation
Give us an idea of what you’re looking for. Feel free to bring pictures, drawings, and your imagination. You’ll be amazed at what we can do with fondant and gum paste!
The Logistics Behind the Perfect Wedding Cake
Cake decorating is truly an art. The colors must be flawless, the sculpting and stenciling must be exact, and every single feature has to taste as magnificent as it looks. Tell us what you’re looking for. If you’re not sure, we can help you decide. There are thousands of options—these are just a few ideas to get you started:
- Sugar pearls or crystals
- Edible gold leaves
- Pearl, luster, or sparkle dust
- Ultra-thin fondant (gum paste) flowers or stencil cut-outs
- Fresh flowers – we recommend having them provided by your florist
Your cake will probably be on display throughout the reception. It is often studied by hundreds of people within a few hours, so it has to remain as beautiful as it was when they left the bakery. With all the work you’ve put into planning this big event, the last thing you need to worry about is how your cake is holding up—that’s our job. In order to do it right, we need to know some key facts:
- The exact date and time of your wedding
- The setting: indoors or outdoors, expected weather conditions, etc.
- The type of display. Keep in mind that we do rent cake stands.
- Expected number of guests
Transporting a cake to a wedding reception requires the utmost care. Getting it where it needs to be and having it ready on time is just as important as it looks and tastes. See our delivery coupon below!
- Before the wedding date we must confirm the following:
- Delivery time
- Accessibility of unloading space
- Where the cake will be displayed
- The pre-assembly of the table
Pricing starts at $3.00 per serving for butter cream icing and $4.00 for fondant, and varies according to decorations and ingredients. Cupcakes start at $2.75 with our signature decoration. Special or dietary accommodations may vary depending on the time and ingredients involved. We can discuss the pricing details upon your arrival for the tasting.
50% of the total is due upon placing your order and the remaining balance is due one week prior to the big day. For your convenience, we do offer payment plans. We are more than willing to work within your budget—just tell us how we can help.
I know how much time and effort it takes to plan this special date. We’d be honored to be a part of it. Cheers!
