FAQs

Answers to some of our FAQs…

  • How much do you charge for a cake?
    • Prices are dependent on the size of cake and complexity of the design. Please see our prices page for a basic starting price. Feel free to contact me for a more accurate quote.

  • How far in advance do I need to place my order?
    • This will depend on the type of cake you require. It’s never too early to order. I ask for at least 6 month’s notice for wedding cakes and 1 month’s notice for celebration cakes. But don’t let that put you off, it’s always worth checking as I can sometimes work on shorter notice periods.

  • What size cake do I need?
    • This is dependent on how many people you need the cake to serve.  To help you choose please see our portion guide. The number of people a cake will feed will vary dependant on how the cake is cut.

  • Do I have to pay a deposit?
    • To secure a booking and confirm your order a non-refundable 50% deposit is required. This can be paid by cheque or bank transfer. Please see payment details in our Terms & Conditions.

  • What flavours of cake can I have?
    • At the moment you can have either a yummy moist chocolate sponge or a delicious plain vanilla sponge. I am currently working on new exciting flavours to add to the list.
      I can also cater for egg, dairy or gluten free cakes.

  • Do you deliver?
    • We can deliver and set up wedding cakes at the venue. A delivery and set up charge will be quoted and the price will depend on the venue locality.
      You can also collect the cake from me at a pre-arranged time.

  • What is the best way to transport my cake?
    • The best place is flat in the boot, or in the footwell of a car. On the seat or on somebody’s lap is not recommended.

  • How do I store my cake?
    • My cakes do not like being put in the refrigerator. Your cake will be fresh to eat 1 week from the time of baking if you follow our storage instructions here.

      • Store out of direct sunlight
      • Store at room temperature (no more than 22 degrees)
      • Store in a breathable box. Air tight containers are great for prolonging freshness but bad for sugar decorations. A cake kept in an air tight container will make the decorations sweat. Although it doesn’t spoil the taste it will make it very sticky.
      • There is no need to keep the cake in the fridge
      • After cutting, cover un-iced portions of cake with cling film to prevent drying out.
  • Will everything on my cake be edible?
    • Sometimes non edible items are used on my cake creations. An information page will be supplied with the cake advising you which parts will require removing before the cake is consumed.

  • What is the best way to cut my cake to get the correct amount of servings?
    • Please see our cake cutting guide here

  • Are your cakes suitable for nut allergy sufferers?
    • We use nuts in our kitchen so although we can exclude them from a recipe, we cannot guarantee anything to be nut free.

  • What if I need to make any alterations or changes to my cake?
    • Alterations to designs can be catered for if enough notice is given. Additional charges may apply depending on the alteration.
