Wedding Cake Design & Cake Tasting Sessions

Enjoy a taste of The Frostery with a Private Design and Tasting Appointment at our cake studio in rural Greater Manchester.

Let us transform your ideas and inspiration into a beautiful wedding cake. Whether you have very specific requirements for your cake or just a general feel of how you want your day to feel, Suzanne will help steer you through different possibilities before emerging with a bespoke design personal to you.

A no obligation, private design appointment with Suzanne Thorp costs £95 which is redeemable against the cost of a confirmed wedding cake booking.

Often the cake design will be informed by other elements of your wedding day. If you are still at the early stages of planning your wedding but love what we do and want to reserve our services to make your cake, you can save-the-date and come to design your wedding cake at a later date.


A huge thanks for making such a wonderful cake for us, it was so special
