Thank you for considering Petal + Peach as you plan your sweet celebration! If it is the first time you’ve enquired with us, here is a list of frequently asked questions.
Can we come in and have a chat? Can we try some cake?
Thirty minute consultations are available on Thursday evenings (5pm, 5.30pm and 6pm) or Saturday mornings (available times vary week to week). Our aim at your consultation is to gather information and discuss basic configurations and sizing options. You will also be offered a small share plate of cake samples that we have baked fresh that week (minimum of six flavours).
We will follow up your consultation with a detailed email highlighting specific sizes, decorative elements, possible additions or alternatives and delivery charges. There is a consultation fee of $40 which is fully credited from your final invoice if you proceed with an order over the value of $400 (excluding delivery). If your sweets order is under $400, this consultation fee is charged in addition to the items you select. Please understand that we are unable to hold spaces in anticipation of a consultation/tasting. In the event your date becomes fully booked prior to your consultation you will be advised.
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. Blooms are incorporated as a part of the final cake design and it is important to us that we see your cake through to completion.
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.
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 two 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 6-9 months in advance.
Can I collect my cake?
Depending on the size of your cake, yes you can. Single tier and two tier cakes are available for collection at a pre-organised appointment time. The time is usually confirmed 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.
Can you deliver my cake?
Delivery is available to most areas including in and around Brisbane and Redlands, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Ipswich areas. Please include details of your venue or the delivery address if you would like us to include this pricing in your quote. All cakes three tiers and larger will require on site construction and are unable to be collected. Delivery to Byron (and surrounds), Toowoomba and Noosa are also available however do incur additional delivery charges due to the time it takes to travel such a long distance. Delivery Fees are as follows:
Brisbane CBD and surrounds $65
Greater Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and associated areas are $1 per km return from our Studio in Wellington Point
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
- Pretty Produce Edible Blooms
- Wellington Point Farm Fresh Strawberries
Additionally, we make our own edible toppers including but not limited to 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.
