Frequently asked questions
We always aim to respond within 48hrs.
For celebration cakes we recommend a minimum of 4-6 weeks. Popular dates do fill up months in advance so it’s never too early to book your cake. You can reserve your date for £25 which will be taken off your final quote so you can decide on a design later. We do sometimes have late availability, please contact us and we will check our availability for your date.
As well as looking at our portfolio, it is also recommended that you bring with you any inspiration you have to help us design your perfect wedding cake. This could include: Photos of your dress, bridesmaid’s dresses or fabric sample, colour samples, invitation, pictures of flowers to be used any pictures of similar cakes for inspiration.
At your consultation you will receive 4 samples of cake to try. If you require specific flavours please let us know in advance, otherwise we will try and provide as wide a selection as possible. Please Take a look at our flavour list to help you choose.
Along with any inspirational sources that may influence your cake design, the following factors need to be discussed to help with the design process:
Number of guests to your event. Whether the cake will be served at your wedding breakfast or later in the evening when you may have more guests in attendance. Is the cake going to be served as a dessert? as you will need a bigger slice to the traditionally served finger portion.
Do you have a budget in mind? We can usually cater for most budgets and an idea of your budget will help me to know what techniques and designs can be used.
After your consultation we will Send you your cake quote by email. If there are details that you would like to change then please note that your quote May be amended accordingly.. A £100 deposit is required to book your wedding cake with the remaining balance due no later than 10 days prior to your wedding date (deposits are non-refundable/non-transferable)

The industry standard for fruit cakes and wedding cakes is a finger portion which is a 1″ by 1″slice and for celebration and birthday cakes a party portion 1″ by 2″ slice. If you are serving your wedding cake as a dessert then I recommend a party size portion.
Please note that all of our square and round cakes are two 2″ cakes, which are torted to give you 4 layers of cake and 3 layers of filling. These cakes will range between 4.5 and 5 inches tall.
