  • Photos of your dress, other key members of the party
  • Colour samples and swatches
  • Wedding / Event invitation
  • Magazine clippings
  • Jewellery
  • Flowers (real or fake)
  • Cake toppers

At your consultation you will also receive some cake samples to try. If you require specific flavours please ensure you let Rubydoocakes know so that we can try to provide these, otherwise a selection will be provided.

Minimum orders on all wedding cakes regardless of size is £200. Please take into consideration that the process of making a wedding cake can take up to 30 hours from start to finish.

Design consultations are charged at £40. This is deducted from the overall cost of the wedding cake. Should you not proceed with using Rubydoocakes, this must be paid in full prior to the consultation taking place.
