Design & Consultation

box

Consultation

During the consultation you have the opportunity to sample a variety of cakes and fillings, while getting a close-up view of a variety of cake displays with different techniques and styles and having the opportunity to browse through Kashaya & Co’s extensive portfolio of wedding cakes and specialty cakes, as well as her ever-growing library of resources. During the consultation Kashaya will get to know you and learn as much as she can about your personal style and vision for the event, and will answer any questions you might have. You are encouraged to bring fabric swatches, photos, invitations, and anything else from which we can draw inspiration for your wedding cake or celebration cake.

Design 

Using the knowledge she gained in the consultation, and any further research required, Kashaya sketches one or more conceptual wedding cake or specialty cake designs tailored to your unique vision.

Sugar Flower Creation

Kashaya and her staff take great care in handcrafting realistic sugar flowers and other decorations that can be made weeks before your event, using special tools and only the best materials, and of course the high level of skill they’ve developed over the years. Very often fresh flower samples are used as models to replicate the delicate texture and subtle colouring  Kashaya & Co can replicate almost anything in sugar, such as an heirloom jewel or brooch, delicate embroidery, a custom monogram, ribbon, pearls, etc., so that your favorite details can be reflected in your wedding cake or specialty cake.

Flavours &  Fillings

All our wedding cakes and specialty cakes and fillings are made fresh from scratch, from only the finest natural ingredients; pure butter, Tahitian Vanilla, fine liquors & extracts, fresh fruit purees, nut pastes, preserves, imported spices and reductions, and Swiss chocolate & fondant. Each wedding cake tier (specialty cake tier) has 4 layers of cake and three layers of filling. All wedding cakes and specialty cakes are finished in ganache, swiss meringue buttercream and often Swiss fondant. Fondant is a sugar-based dough that gives our wedding cakes and specialty cakes a satiny, smooth look, and can be flavored and colored. Ganache is a dense mixture of chocolate and cream, and has a bold, rich flavor. Your wedding cake can be made all out of one cake flavor and different fillings, or 2 or more cake favors with complementary fillings. The top of your wedding cake is an extra tier reserved just for you and is never counted in the wedding cake guest servings. For example, if you order a wedding cake to serve 200, your total wedding cake servings will be 200 plus the top cake tier (usually serves between 6 – 15, depending on the cake size).

Final Assembly

The day of your wedding or event, the Kashaya & Co will put the final decorations on your custom wedding cake or specialty cake. Final decorations include piping, fondant appliqués  fondant ribbons and bows, piping, pearl dust, and placement of bouquets and individual sugar flowers. Multi-tiered wedding cakes are assembled to be sturdy for delivery by our experienced staff. Due to their design, some elaborate wedding cakes may require final assembly on site.
