Frequently Asked Questions

Is delivery included?

A mileage rate of 60 pence per mile (return journey) is added to the order if delivery is required.  Semi naked cakes are very robust and could easily be transported by a member of your wedding party.  However for sugarpaste covered, stacked cakes I do recommend that you opt for our delivery service as  I want you (and me) to be able to relax knowing that everything will go to plan on the day.

Can you supply 'Free From' cakes?

Yes, most of my cakes and flavours can be supplied as ‘Free From’. Please contact me for pricing and availability.

How far ahead should I book you?

Simply, the earlier you can book the better.  As a one-woman operation my availability is limited so the earlier you can confirm your booking the more likely you are not to be disappointed.

What size cake do I need?

The size of cake you need will depend on the number of portions you require and also the design you would like to achieve.  Some designs need more cake to work well than others.  Please contact me to discuss your requirements

Why do you only show guide pricing?

Yours and every cake are bespoke.  The final cost of your cake will depend on the level of decoration and complexity involved in producing it.  Some designs can take in excess of 15 hours simply to decorate.

Can you make a cake I've seen online?

I can incorporate some elements or all of this into the design of your cake. I can’t make an exact copy though as the original design belongs to the cake designer.

Can I book a tasting session?

Private sampling/consultations are periodically throughout the year.  Usually in the Spring, Autumn and Winter, excluding the busy summer period when we are busy producing the seasons wedding cakes. Sampling consultations are for 2 people unless by prior arrangement.  To prevent your date being booked you can ‘save the date’ prior to our meeting for a consultation or tasting session a booking fee of £25 is payable which is deducted from the order price when you confirm your booking.  Following our meeting, your date is held for a further 7 days following your quotation being produced.

How do I book you?

A £50 booking deposit is required to confirm your booking.  If your booking is less than 6 months away the booking fee is 50% of your order.  To ‘save the date’ prior to a consultation or tasting session a booking fee of £25 is payable.  This is deductable from the order price when you confirm your booking.  Following our meeting, your date is held for a further 7 days and a further £25 will be required in order to confirm the booking.  If we do not hear from you within 7 days of your consultation the date will become available for another client and we will assumen you do not wish to proceed.

Do we have to have a consultation?

No, you can book me without a consultation if you’ve seen a cake you require (without modifications) on my website, although it’s usually better to meet and discuss your exact requirements.
