➳ HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CREATE YOUR MOST POPULAR WEDDING CAKES?
Creating a Wedding cake is a process that we really enjoy, in some cases when the design and the decoration of the cake involves a lot of work, we can take two weeks preparing the decorations. If it is a simple design, we can start the whole process three or four days before the date.

The first step is to bake the cakes, at the same time we start preparing the decoration that is going to be used. On the second day, the fillings are prepared and placed on each layer and we usually keep on preparing the decorations. On the third day, we place the chocolate ganache or buttercream on the cake and cover it with fondant. The decorations are added at the end. If the cake is more than one tier, we also have to prepare the necessary supports to put one tier over the other.

➳ WHEN WAS MAGNOLIA CAKE BOUTIQUE BORN?
Magnolia Cake Boutique has specialised in Wedding cakes since 2012. With our innovative style, our team of experts creates bespoke cakes design. We love the balance between the avant-garde in design and elegant finishing. Baking is our passion, and design is our language. That's why we put so much effort into every detail. We firmly believe that a Magnolia’s Wedding cake should not only look beautiful but also taste delicious! Our Patisserie Chef has been making cakes for more than 6 years and Magnolia opened its doors in Brisbane in October 2017, with the approval of the Brisbane City Council to produce our cakes under food safety standard.


➳ WHAT DOES BESPOKE MEAN FOR YOU?
For us bespoke means that when the Bride and Groom see the finished cake, they will think “This cake is just what we wanted and it's even more beautiful than we imagined”. There is no bigger reward for us than knowing that the couple are happy with the result and that is why we make sure that in Magnolia we understand from the beginning what our couples want for that special day as well as we possibly can. For us, each cake is a work of art and because of that two cakes are never the same, each cake has personal details and is made for each specific Wedding. Sometimes we meet with couples who have a clear idea of ​​what they want for their party and in other cases with couples that have many ideas for the design of their cake and would like our advice to decide on what they will have. Our challenge in both cases is to make them feel like their dream is understood and that they are happy when they see their Wedding cake.


➳ DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVORITE FLAVOR?
If we had to choose, we believe that for the winter the chocolate cake with coffee cream is essential and in summer the vanilla cake with white chocolate cream and lemon is perfect to give freshness to food. Our menu has a wide range of flavors, from the most traditional to the most daring, also we have gluten-free flavors. In each preparation, we ensure quality in our products, we use the best brands and the freshest products, so the taste in our cakes becomes an outstanding feature.

➳ HOW LONG OUT FROM A WEDDING SHOULD A COUPLE BOOK IN THEIR WEDDING CAKE DESIGNER?
If we have availability for the date required by the couple, and the cake is not very complicated we ask for a week in advance, in case it is a cake with more details and decoration we ask for at least two weeks in advance. But beyond these times we always try to help our couples and see how we could work together to get the best result for their special day.


➳ TELL US ABOUT THE MAGNOLIA CAKE BOUTIQUE PROCESS - TASTINGS, DELIVERY ETC:
We always try to have the consistent and quality communication with the couple, from the beginning when we receive the enquiry, we offer a cake tasting for the couple to taste our cakes and meet us, also and to discuss with them about the type of cakes they are dreaming of. We love to hear about the details of the Wedding, the palette of colours and the decoration, so we can inspire together the best cake design that will match the ambience of the party. The idea of ​​these meetings for us, is to get to  know the couples and their history, to capture what is important for them in relation to the cake and specially to have fun together. We believe that the celebration of a Wedding begins with all the preparations, that is why we try to make our meeting a relaxed and fun experience.

This meeting has a value of $25 dollars and the couple taste 5 flavors, 3 chosen by them and another 2 recommended by us. After the meeting, we send the quote by email and if they accept the quote, we request the 50% of the value to confirm the booking and the other 50% one week before the wedding date. We offer the hire of the cake stand and delivery on the day of the Wedding. We coordinate the delivery details with the Wedding coordinator of the venue. There is an additional fee for delivery. The price is quoted according to the location. The pick-ups are free one day before the event.

A week after the wedding, we send an email requesting feedback about their experience of being part of Magnolia, which helps us to keep improving our cake design experiences.

➳ IF YOU COULD CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF CAKE TOPPER, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 
Our favourite for the cake topper is personalized laser cutting, in which the couple can express in a few words a phrase or a symbol that identifies them.


➳ WHAT DIFFERENT OPTIONS DOES MAGNOLIA OFFER THEIR COUPLES?
Introducing: The fake cake. 
It's simple! We decorate a Fake Cake (like a normal cake) with real sugar decorations. Nobody can suspect that it is fake cake and that it looks the same as a real one. Perfect if you:
- Are getting married in summer or outdoors
- Are worried about cooling your Wedding cake
- Have a small number of guests but you always dreamed of a great tier-designed wedding cake or if you have a large number of guests but you cannot afford a gigantic wedding cake
- Want a spectacular cake with many levels to impress all your guests in your Wedding party (but nobody is really going to eat all that cake)


➳ CAN YOU PERFORM THE CAKE CEREMONY WITH THE FAKE CAKE?

Yes ... Magic! The trick? We place a small flower on the cake that indicates where the couple should cut, when cutting it they can take a slice of real cake that can be eaten in front of the guests if the couple wishes to do. The rest of the cake is fake. The cake ceremony happens normally with the lovely couple cutting and posing for pictures. The reception staff will take the fake cake to the kitchen and serve the real cake to the guests. No one will ever know that they are not eating their real Wedding cake!
