Veronica is dedicated to you, and to making your special day fabulous! To achieve that glorious end, before scheduling your personal consultation, please take a moment to peruse the following and jot down any questions and/or inspiration which may be sparked.
Q: How long have you been a cake designer? How did you become a cake designer?
My love affair with cake design took flight more than twenty years ago, in my hometown of Dayton, Ohio, birthplace of aviation and lofty innovation. My mother and I took a cake design class, and as they say…The rest, is history! I began by creating one-of-a-kind cake designs for family and friends, before ultimately making the leap to professional cake designer. Never one to rest on my laurels, I have furthered my formal design training by taking numerous cake decorating courses in various other states, as well as throughout Ohio. My passion for cake design has grown over the years into my life’s work.
Lady Di Cakes was born in 2004, and for the past decade, I have been honored and privileged to serve and share in countless special occasions, including weddings, birthdays, graduations, baby showers, bachelorette events, and more!
Q: Great! So, tell me, what really sets you apart from all the other cake designers out there?
What sets me apart from other cake designers is my innate ability to actively listen to each client’s vision, and then seamlessly deliver. Building a relationship with each client is important to me, so I take the time to get to know her unique personality, style, and expectations. This helps me to effectively intuit her vision, while also ensuring a happy, at-ease client. After all, it is her special day, and my objective is to ensure her happiness through the flawless execution of her all-important vision.
Another of my strengths is providing creative solutions for my clients. As cake techniques change and evolve, it is imperative to stay current with those trends, ultimately creating a signature cake style. That said, I keep abreast of the latest cake design trends, as well as nostalgia designs. I have a voracious appetite and aptitude for learning unique design techniques and creating tasty recipes!
Each valued client knows and appreciates that her every detail matters, and every question will be addressed. When all is said and done, the final design decisions ultimately rest with the client. With every design delivered, my personal philosophy is to do all I can to foresee and eliminate any “surprises” on the day of the event.
Q: This all sounds so wonderful! But can I afford your services?
Yes! We understand the needs of the budget-conscious bride. Whether you choose a traditional wedding cake, cupcakes, or our newest creation, CakeBites, we can and will work within your budget. While you are spending precious hours on other important details of your wedding/special event, I will work to ensure a stress-free experience from consultation, to ordering, to the creation and delivery and set-up of your unique design. For that peace of mind, there is no price tag.
Q: Who do you work best with, Veronica?
Speaking of brides, I work best with the bride who understands the value of having a professional to assist her in creating her dream wedding cake. Whether she already has a design, or wants to create a unique cake, she can rely on our expertise and resources to make her experience one of ease and Aha! moments. No bride should worry if the cake will arrive on time, or be properly constructed. When it comes to our beautiful bride’s special day, we say, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy!” We take care of every detail.
Q: I want fresh flowers incorporated into my cake design. Will you work with my florist?
Yes! I would be happy to work with the florist of your choice to provide the cake size, design, and style to best complement the floral arrangement chosen for the cake. I am here to assist you in every way I can.
Q: Do you take credit cards? What about a payment plan?
Yes! And yes! We accept payments via Pay Pal and by credit card. We also offer payment plans. We understand that one solution may not fit all. Some of our clients find it easier to have a payment plan. Again, it is my goal to create an environment of ease so that you can relax and enjoy your special day!
Q: Do you freeze your cakes?
No! And we never will. You do not have to worry about your cake being baked several weeks in advance and frozen in order to accommodate other wedding cake orders. The potential of a cake being slightly frozen when it’s cut in the presence of family and friends is something I am not willing to risk.
Q: How many weddings do you take per day?
Depending on the cake design, reception location, time, and other variables, I typically accept 2-3 cake orders per day. Because of my limited cake schedule, I can’t “hold” dates for clients. You are more than welcome to bring the cake retainer ($125) to your consultation to reserve your date. Regrettably, once my production schedule is full, I am unable to accept additional orders.
Q: What are your former clients saying about working with you?
