Thank you for considering Petal + Peach as you plan your important celebration. If it is the first time you’ve enquired with us, here is a list of frequently asked questions.
How do I order a cake?
Please submit a quote request form. By providing as many details as possible including date, number of serves required, size of the portion (dessert or coffee) and any specific design features you like we are able to provide you with a quick and accurate quote. It is also helpful to send images of the inspiration for your event including pictures of table settings, invitations, dresses, flowers etc. In some instances, you may know exactly what you would like and we can work with your vision to create something spectacular. In other instances you may only have a general idea or collection of ideas that need editing – we can help you with this too.
How far in advance should I order my cake?
As soon as you know about your event and the type of cake you would like, please book it in. Although we may be able to make a cake with one weeks notice, there is a risk that as we move closer to your desired date, we will become booked out. We would really hate to disappoint you! We take a limited number of wedding cake bookings each week and find that most clients book their cake 9-12 months in advance.
Can I collect my cake?
Yes. Cakes are available for collection at a pre-organised time. The collection time is usually discussed one week prior to the collection day and is subject to availability. It is important that your cake has somewhere flat to rest like the floor in front of the passenger seat or the boot of the car. Petal + Peach does not accept responsibility for collected cakes damaged in transit.
What ingredients do you use in your cakes?
Depending on the cake you order, you can expect to find some of the following superior quality ingredients in your cake:
- Esther’s Free Range eggs
- Callebaut or Lindt Chocolate
- Maleny Gurnsey Milk
- Byron Bay organic Edible Blooms
- Wellington Point Farm Fresh Strawberries
Additionally, we make our own edible toppers including but not limited to glazed doughnuts, macarons, meringues, curd, sugar cookies, caramel and toffee. At this stage we are unable to offer dairy free and nut free cakes. We have a very small kitchen and all of our equipment has at some point come in to contact with these foods.
Do you offer tastings?
Petal + Peach is undergoing some very exciting changes. As a result, tasters are currently on hold. We will be offering this service again in 2018 and look forward to offering you an opportunity to sample each flavour on our menu.
Can my florist or I put flowers on the cake?
No. The signature Petal + Peach style includes the unique way we incorporate fresh blooms on your cake. As the cake is edible, we are responsible for ensuring it is safe to eat and free from contamination. This is a responsibility we take very seriously. Additionally, we would advise against placing blooms on the cake yourself as fresh blooms must be prepared correctly in order to prevent contamination of the cake.
