Wedding Cake Tasting Boxes – FAQs

At Cove Cake Design, we operate our wedding cake tastings via a postal luxury tasting box service which is dispatched 3-4 times per year. This has been hugely popular with clients, with many saying it was one of the highlights of their wedding planning process. The postal box service allows clients to sample a selection of wedding cake flavours in the comfort of their home, discussing options and their preferred choices at leisure. It's the perfect excuse to grab a glass of Champagne and even get some friends or family round to join in the fun! Find out more in this blog post.
