The Process

Are you interested in working with Good Karma Cake Design, but not sure what to expect? Here’s a quick overview of our typical booking process.

SAY HELLO!

First, let’s get to know each other! To start a conversation, fill out the contact form or email me directly at jeanne@gkcakedesign.com with the details of your event. I recommend doing this at least 3 months in advance, as I only accept a limited number of orders each week.
Once I determine availability, we will schedule a short 15 minute discovery call to get to know each other and discuss the details of your cake. I may ask you to do some homework to get a good feel for what you would like to incorporate into your cake design.

If your event date will occur during the busy season, or on or near a holiday, I recommend that you reach out at least four to six months in advance. However, please inquire if your date is sooner as it is always possible I may have availability.

CONSULTATION & TASTING

Due to schedule constraints, I offer tasting boxes for pre-order on a quarterly basis for a fee. If you decide to reserve your date with a non refundable deposit before a scheduled tasting event, the fee is waived. Each box contains a random selection of cake flavors from our complete menu of delicious options. Available for local pick-up, you may enjoy it at your leisure and afterwards we will schedule a consultation via phone or zoom to discuss your preferences and overall vision. I encourage all my couples to create a mood board that includes your color story, floral types, patterns, fonts, and anything that embodies the vibe of your event. This allows me to capture the look and feel of your event and create a cake that will compliment everything beautifully. All appointments must be booked at least 1-2 weeks in advance and are limited to a maximum of 4 people.

DESIGN PROPOSAL

Using the information gathered from our meeting, I will go back to the studio to begin the design process. Once complete, I will email an in depth proposal with a detailed description, inspiration photos, a design sketch and price information. We will work together to make sure every tiny detail is exactly what you want for your special day.

BOOK

When you are ready to book at 50% non refundable deposit and a signed contract will reserve your date. I only take a limited number of projects each week in order to give them my full focus and attention. Therefore, if you would like to lock in your data prior to tasting/consultation, just let me know and I will add you to the calendar. Save-the-Date deposits are $100 and non-refundable.

CELEBRATE

Now that we have all the cake details out of the way, you are free to focus on any other tasks that need your attention. You can feel safe in the knowledge that I will facilitate any communication with your planner, venue, florist, etc to coordinate the delivery, set-up and styling of your beautiful cake, so that it will be ready and waiting for you on the big day. Final payment along with any changes, are due 21 days prior to your event.
