Read our interview with them below to learn about how you can be prepared to work with them for your wedding day!
Tell us about yourself! When did you get started? What made you decide to go into cake decorating? What do you like most about being a cake decorator?
We have been in business for over 8 years!
It all started when Deb made Julies wedding cake. Julie then attended a cake decorating class with Deb. They enjoy being able to release their artistic side as a creative outlet and knew cake decorating would be a great opportunity. The rest is history.
What does your training look like? How do you stay on top of the latest trends in wedding cakes?
We are self-taught and use the internet to stay on top of the newest trends in the wedding industry.
Describe your style of cake decorating.
We really go off of what the customer chooses, and we do their best to reciprocate their style.
What should couples know about booking Ohh My! Cakes for their wedding?
We are personable, open-minded, budget-friendly, and we try to cater to the needs of our couples.
How far in advance do couples need to book Ohh My! Cakes for their wedding?
Ohh My! Cakes offers a consultation meeting and a taste test. These consultations are typically scheduled a month from the wedding date at a minimum.
What should couples prepare to bring with them to their first meeting with you? How many times do you typically meet with a couple prior to the wedding day?
A couple typically meets with a member of Ohh My! Cakes once during the consultations/taste test, but additional meetings can be arranged if needed. Couples should provide any ideas they may have for their wedding cake. Colors are extremely helpful as well. The couple will also need an idea of how many guests will be attending in order to get an estimated number of servings.
What does it look like for Ohh My! Cakes on a wedding day? What preparation is required?
It makes it easier if the cake table is decorated and the topper and flowers (if applicable) are placed on the cake table.
What will your interaction with the couple look like on the wedding day? What should they expect? Is it easier to work with a wedding coordinator?
Interaction with the couple is extremely limited on the actual wedding day. All questions are answered and the balance is paid in full prior to the wedding day. That way we can deliver and set up without needing to bother the couple during their special day.
What do you wish couples knew about your business?
We are not limited to just cakes for those considering a dessert bar for their guests. We can provide brownies, pies, cheesecakes, cookies, and donuts as well as other items upon request. We are open-minded and love to embrace new ideas and challenges.
Are there certain things couples can do to make the process of working with your business easier? What are some dos and donts?
Pictures or color swatches will always make the process easier. We are honest with the couple and we want the couple to be honest with us in return. There are several things to consider during the order process, so we ask for patience. We want to create a special cake for every couple!
What are some things couples should consider that are specific to cakes? Is there a certain kind of frosting that should be used if the cake will be outdoors? Any other things to consider?
The time of year, location, and outdoor weddings are all things that need to be considered. Certain decorations, techniques, and types of frosting are sensitive to heat. Therefore, the couple may need to make changes to the design according to the venue of the wedding. We are able to guide couples in the right direction and give them options.
Anything else you would like to add?
We strongly encourage couples to schedule a consultation so we can discuss ideas and give a more accurate estimate of a special wedding cake. During this time, a taste test is offered. The couple is allowed to choose up to six flavors of cake to test. If the couple is doing a dessert bar, this is a great opportunity to try a variety of items as well. The consultation starts at $50 and usually lasts an hour.
