Tasting & Consultation
If you are considering commissioning Primmy as your cake-maker, please contact Primrose Cottage Cakes to arrange a wedding cake tasting & consultation. At Primmy's Bridal Boutique you will have the opportunity to sample some of Primmy’s delicious flavours & view the beautiful cakes on display. To help Primmy guide you to find a design that is perfect for your wedding, please bring along anything that might inspire your cake such as a piece of material from your gown, a picture of your flowers and colour swatches.
Bespoke Design Service
All cakes at Primrose Cottage Cakes are made to order and any design from the collection can be customised to your specifications. During your consultation Primmy can advise you on the style and size of cake to suit your guest list and venue. She will also discuss how details unique to your wedding such as your colour scheme, the reception flowers, the lace of your wedding dress, or maybe a monogram from your invitations can inspire the look of your cake. The possibilities are endless and the bespoke service at Primrose Cottage Cakes will ensure that your cake will perfectly reflect your personal style and provide the crowning centre-piece to your reception.
If your wedding cake is decorated with fresh flowers, Primmy recommends that these are provided by your florist to ensure that your cake decoration perfectly coordinates with your reception flowers and bouquet. Cake prices do not include fresh flowers; however as part of the service at Primrose Cottage Cakes, Primmy will liaise with your florist prior to your wedding and discuss the floral requirements and set-up arrangements for your wedding day.
Primmy provides a free delivery and cake set up service to all wedding venues within 20km of Gorey town. Deliveries to other locations can be arranged but are subject to a delivery fee of €1.00 for each additional km outside the 20km radius.
If you choose delivery, Primmy will liaise with the banqueting team at your venue regarding delivery times, cake set up etc.
