I've stated before, I don't do a lot of weddings. I don't advertise for them, I personally think it's too much stress. But, if asked and terms are agreed, I have done them. I am being asked what "wedding packages" I offer. I have no idea what this means. I'm a home baker, and do all kinds of baked items, but I don't have a "package". How do I answer this? Thanks in advance.
I am a home baker too, so I will answer from that perspective. Advise the customer that you have no specific package, each wedding is different. Suggest a meeting to discuss their expectations and this gives you the opportunity to let them know what other treats you are able to supply, including a groom's cake, cookies, etc.
If you are unable to respond, just start a new post with the same title and we will understand what is going on.
My point of view is they want you basically todo everything related to sweets —everything from tablecloths, silver, cookies, appetizers probably all but the meal itself Take Sandra’s advice :)
I just think they have their vendors mixed up -- most b&g's are new at this -- cakers don't offer 'packages' -- venues and caterers offer packages, wedding coordinators are the package deal, coordinating everything --
cakers rarely even skirt the table or provide silverware, plates or anything like that -- we might provide cake knives, plateaus, and perhaps cake table decor like petals -- even if they want candles or something on the cake table, they usually provide it so it all matches everything else --
Okay, thank you. I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something before I responded. I will respond that I don't offer packages, what I do offer, and we'll see where it goes.
yeah that's what i would do -- cakers have their hands full with what they do already and to get it right a caker would not want to complicate their role -- unless it was for family and even then when i did my kids cakes i exempted myself and my husband from other wedding duties because he was my backup -- also i was very tired at those weddings too so...
