Where is Honey-Belle Cakery Based? Honey Belle Cakery is based in Maitland NSW Australia. It is not a store or shop front just a studio kitchen and one busy Caker.
How far in advance should I enquire? I do not take bookings further than 12 months prior to your event date and only take a small amount of wedding cakes per year. I take a lot of pride, care and spend a lot of time on each creation to ensure it is original, unique and is of the highest quality. If you are getting married in the next 12 months, be sure to get in touch as soon as possible.
Do you deliver? All cakes are delivered by Honey-Belle Cakery. Pick up is not an option for these big, heavy, specialty products. Travel costs are added to your quote based on location. Travel costs are not for profit, they cover fuel & vehicle requirements only.
Can my florist supply the cake flowers? Yes, absolutely. Almost every cake I make is styled with fresh flowers. These can be supplied through Honey-Belle Cakery or by your florist. Communication with your florist is KEY to ensure they know exactly what I require for your cake weeks prior to your event. In most cases I will get in contact with them myself so all parties are on the same page. All cakes are styled by Honey-Belle Cakery, this is a requirement within your contract. Florists and cake makers cross paths a lot at the venue bump in so florals are often left for me in water or a received another arranged way.
Do you offer tastings? I offer Tasting Boxes. These are a specialty small batch product offered every three months. Booked clients receive early bird access to pre-orders.
Do you cater for gluten free, dairy free and vegan? Yes, I am very understanding of all dietary requirements and eating choices. It is important to me that no one misses out – especially on dessert! Some flavours in our menu can be made gluten free or vegan. If you have only a small number of guests with dietary needs, I can make individual small cakes to cater for them.
I feel a little lost, can you take the reins? Absolutely! Planning a wedding can feel intense and I understand that not everyone has knowledge about the cake making process. So if you feel confused or have a few unanswered questions, please let me know. I am happy to give my advice and knowledge on sizing, serving, design and everything in between.
Can I make changes after I've booked? Absolutely! I totally understand that visions and ideas change over time. You have up until 2 weeks before your event to make any design, flavour or size changes.
Why don't you make semi-nude cakes? Honey-Belle Cakery steers away from any cake trends. I am passionate about my product and brand staying original, unique, and unrepeatable. I constantly thrive to stay fulfilled in every new creation and stand out within my industry. Also, it’s 2023!.. and who ever wants less frosting anyway?
