Why is a cake tasting important?
PJR has been providing bespoke wedding cakes and cupcakes for all occasions in and around London since 1999. This includes corporate events, birthdays, engagements, weddings and more. Founded by professional pastry chef Amarjit after spending 16 years working in business class and VIP catering, the PJR reputation has been built upon attention to detail as well as the most important factor in any food preparation… taste. As we all know, guests always leave a wedding and talk about the food. For years, people have talked about how moist and fresh our cakes taste. It’s usually the last piece of your wedding the guests will take away. This is why the tasting is so important.
When shall I order my wedding cake?
Firstly, it never hurts to at least enquire about your cake booking regardless of how early or late it is. Every couple is different; some of you may have already booked your venue in which case we urge you to come in for a tasting. Some of you may have had issues with other bakers and need a last minute cake, get in touch and if we can help you, be assured we certainly will. To get the most out of your wedding cake consultation, you should at least have some idea of design or colour theme. Send us images of cakes you like, from our gallery or the internet, bring in clippings, or just give us an idea of the direction you would like to go e.g. peacock/gold/vintage/show stopper. We have seen and done it all, been to hundreds of venues and worked with every reputable caterer/co-ordinator. We can help you along the design process so that you get the absolute most out of your centre piece wedding cake.
How much is a wedding cake?
In an era of extravagant weddings, PJR still holds true to its original values of providing excellence within your own individual budget. Our wedding cakes start at £500 for a four tier cake and can go up to £1000+ depending on what you are looking for. Rest assured, We always do right by our wedding couples which is why we have been around over 16 years without advertising. Word-of-mouth and coming recommended by reputable supplier/industry professionals is what we continue to thrive for. This only happens when you provide value to your client, and exceed their expectations time and time again. Every PJR cake is baked with care, decorated with pride and displayed with maximum attention to detail. No matter how much you are spending, you are important to us and your wedding cake will be yet another PJR masterpiece.
How can I book a wedding cake tasting?
Our cake consultations are free of charge. We urge you to get in touch early so that we can at least give you an idea of what your cake might cost. This way, the consultation and tasting can all be focused on designing the most beautiful wedding cake to compliment you on your special day. Bring in clippings of things you like, even fabric of your wedding dress if you would like your cake to match it. The more information at this stage, the better. Don’t worry. Even after the consultation, we will be tweaking and updating your design. The main objective here is to find the common direction and agree to share in the process together. There is no Asian wedding cake baker in the industry today who is more experienced than PJR. You are in good hands, there is no pressure to buy, no pressure to spend more than your budget allows. Regardless of how much you are spending, you are valued by us and we will try and exceed your expectations. Start by sending us an email with some basic info and let’s take it from there.
