Kent Wedding Cake Sample Boxes: Your Ultimate Guide

We might be slightly biased, but we think your wedding cake is kind of a big deal. It’s one of the best parts of your wedding day (both delicious and lovely to look at; what’s not to love?) and so it makes sense that the cake tasting experience should be one of the best parts of your wedding planning too.  Your Kent wedding cake sample boxes are so much more than a selection of sweet slices.  At Bluebell Kitchen, we’ve worked hard to ensure that you have a relaxing and luxurious tasting experience.  And now for the first time ever, you can select the flavours you want to try!

What could be better than unwrapping a little parcel of gorgeous goodies in the comfort of your own home, taking your time to taste each one accompanied by a soul-warming cup of tea or a celebratory glass of fizz? We ask you to choose your favourite flavours from our exciting wedding cake menu.  Yes, you get to choose your favourites. As well as your wedding cake samples you’ll also receive some mouthwatering, handmade macarons (one of the things we’re known for!)  These can be ordered as part of your wedding cake or as bitesize, personalised favours.

1. Choosing Flavours For Your Kent Wedding Cake Sample Box

We apologise in advance if it’s difficult to choose between our exquisite, carefully curated flavours for your wedding cake samples.  We’re confident there’s something in there for everyone. If you’re a fan of sumptuously traditional flavours but your partner has a penchant for something playful, you could order sophisticated Tipsy Champagne and Strawberry alongside homey Toffee Apple Crumble. Combine zingy Luscious Lemon with Orange Blossom & Almond for a citrusy selection, or go for comfort flavours like Cappuccino Coffee or Valencian Orange Chocolate. You’re spoiled for choice, and we can’t wait for you to dive into the delicious fun.

2. Kent Wedding Cake Sample Boxes for Dietary Restrictions

If you’re looking for Kent wedding cake sample boxes suitable for dietary restrictions, we’ve got you covered. We offer vegan, without gluten and dairy free tasting boxes.  We can adapt almost all of our flavours. Delicate, fruity flavours transform particularly well! We post these sample boxes on a different date to our regular tasting boxes, so just let us know what you need and we’ll be happy to help.

On the off-chance that you’re not a cake-lover (we forgive you) or you’re looking for a unique alternative to a tiered wedding cake, we can send you a macaron tasting box instead. We’re huge fans of macaron towers and macaron wedding cakes as striking centrepieces, so just wait ‘til you get a load of our macaron flavour menu

If for any reason you’re not a wedding cake fan, how about trying a personalised wedding macarons tasting box?

3. What Happens Once You’ve Received Your Wedding Cake Samples?

Whilst your tasting box is winging its way to you in the post (via Special Delivery; nobody misses out on cake on our watch!) you’ll also receive a virtual copy of our wedding cake brochure, so you can get to know us and get answers to some of your initial questions. We’ll arrange a video call or get-together in person if you’re in the Kent area, as we love to find out more about you. We’re a bit nosy, but it’s all for a good cause! 

We post your Kent wedding cake sample boxes a few days before our weekend wedding cake consultations so you have time to enjoy them before we chat about your plans. When we meet, either virtually or in person, we can spend as much time as you want talking through the flavour options and your cake vision, as well as your planning and designing experience with us.

We bake all of our cake samples from scratch especially for you in our kitchen.

You’ll find out what you can expect from us once you’ve placed your order, how we produce our quotes, when you can expect your bespoke design sketch, and how we’ll work together with your wedding venue and other suppliers. It’s for these reasons that we do charge a small fee for our wedding cake tasting consultations. We bake all of our cake samples from scratch especially for you in our kitchen.  We put a lot of time and care into ensuring you have the best possible experience!

4. Of course, you shouldn’t just take our word for it…
