Don't put yourself or your loved ones at risk!!!
In the last couple of years, I have noticed that many of my Vancouver Cake clients have misconceptions about custom cake design. I'm here to tell you the truth and make you aware of some of the dangers involved with custom cake design.
1.) Many Custom Cake Designers make unhealthy and unnatural cakes.
Have you ever wondered what's in the specialty cake that you are serving to your family, friends and children?
Preservatives, Vegetable Shortening and tons of chemicals which are masked by loads of icing sugar and flavoured extracts. Sounds healthy and delicious doesn't it?
Well, the sad truth is that many Specialty Cake Designers use most, if not all of these unhealthy ingredients in their custom cakes. Not only that, but many will flash freeze your cake for weeks or months before it even hits your mouth.
At Lyttle Bake Shop, all of my specialty cakes are made completely from scratch, so I know exactly what's in them. I use only the freshest ingredients, are made fresh to order and are never frozen. My European butterceams are light, fluffy and will melt-in-your-mouth!
All of my ingredients are 100% natural and I'm proud of it!
2.) Many Custom Cake Designers do not follow health codes and don't use clean, sanitized kitchens.
Health risks from not cleaning the kitchen properly can occur, leading to many food borne illnesses like campylobacter, E.Coli, and Salmonella. Each is caused by bacteria and can make people very ill or even cause death. This is something you should take very seriously.
Your health could be at risk.
At Lyttle Bake Shop, I take every precaution necessary to ensure that the kitchen and utensils are sterilized after each use to prevent any bacteria from forming, thus eliminating any sickness that can occur.
Your health will always come first.
3.) Lowest price, doesn't always mean a good deal.
Price is directly related to value. Not all purses are the same. There's Louis Vuitton or the purse you buy at Walmart. Same goes for Custom Cake Designers.
If a Cake Designer is offering an extremely low price, I would be weary. Chances are they are using boxed cakes or unhealthy, cheap ingredients. Remember, this food is entering your body. All-natural, premium ingredients are expensive yes, but your specialty cake will not only be healthier, it'll taste much better as well.
Another reason why a Custom Cake Designer would offer such low prices is because they are not confident in their talent or they don't invest much time in your cake, thus not charging much for their time. This is your special day! It's important to trust your Cake Designer, so you're confident that you will receive a beautiful cake that looks amazing and tastes incredible, is made in a clean, hygienic environment and made using the best all-natural ingredients.
My Vancouver Cake Clients continuously re-order for all of their events and refer other clients because my specialty cakes taste fresh, light and fluffy, are all-natural and they love my creative talent and attention to detail. I have the best custom cakes in Vancouver and I charge accordingly.
4.) Many Custom Cakes Designers don't do tastings or will charge for it if they do.
Many Cake Designers only offer tastings for wedding cake orders, but why? I have Vancouver custom 3D cakes that are bigger and more expensive than some Vancouver wedding cakes. Every client, no matter what the event is, should be entitled to a tasting.
At Lyttle Bake Shop, I offer free cake taste testings to all clients when you're looking at ordering a custom cake. It's not just for weddings. I think all events are special and I am determined to make your day as memorable as possible!
5.) Many Specialty Cake Designers work part-time or are just hobbyists.
If the Cake Designer is a receptionist during the day and a Cake Designer by night then their business will simply be a hobby to them and you'll be treated as such. Professionalism and customer service will be secondary. Your Cake Designer needs to have a commitment to your health and your request. They need to give you 100% of their time and energy instead of just what's left over from working their day job. This is your special day!
I am 100% focused on your cake and your cake only. I take pride in all the small touches I give to each and every cake to make it unique. I understand that this day is special to you. The cake is a backdrop of your event and focal point for many pictures, so I take great effort to make each confection as exceptional as your event. I am so confident that you will love your custom cake that I offer a full money-back guarantee on all of my Vancouver Specialty cakes if you are not satisfied. I am the best in Vancouver and I put my money where my mouth is. If I don't over-deliver on all of my promises, I'll give you your money back. It's that simple.
6.) Many Custom Cake Designers are inexperienced.
Ask to see a portfolio of their work. Be careful as many new, inexperienced Cake Designers will use 'other artists work' and portray it as their own. If you notice this happening, run far away! They are being dishonest and are lying to you right from the start. It's extremely important to trust and be confident that the Cake Designer you choose can complete your cake professionally. After all, you are paying for their service and artistic talent.
At Lyttle Bake Shop, you don't need to stress. Feel confident that your Vancouver Custom Cake will look and taste incredible!
