The more notice you can give us the better chance you have of securing your order. Ideally for larger cakes, and tiered cakes with lots of decoration we would like at least 3 months notice. For smaller cakes, and cupcakes 2-4 weeks notice should be sufficient. Please call us to make sure, and we will be able to confirm availability.
What size cake will I need?
Our portion guide is intended as a guide only. The number of people a cake will feed will vary dependant upon how you cut your cake.
Prices vary according to the size and complexity of the cake or cupcakes. Basic costs are detailed on this website, but for a more accurate quote please contact me prior to placing your order to discuss your requirements.
What flavours are available?
Just about any, within reason! The most popular remain chocolate, vanilla and lemon but if your heart's desire is a carrot cake, then let me know and I’ll see what I can do! It truly is a bespoke service. If you wish to order a rich fruit cake, then we will need at least 4 months prior notice before placing your order.
We also offer a selection of filling options, including chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, lemon meringue, caramel, salted caramel, raspberry and fresh berries. Again, these can be adapted to suit your tastes, so please ask and we will try our best to create the perfect filling.
All our iced fondant cakes are covered in white or dark chocolate ganache prior to applying the fondant. This creates a beautiful surface for the finished cake, and gives a lovely moist cake with a touch of decadence. For extra flavouring, the ganache can be laced with orange, peppermint or alcohol. Cakes can also be skimmed with a beautiful Swiss meringue buttercream for either a semi-naked finish, or smooth buttercream finish. Fruit cakes will be first covered with marzipan, followed by fondant icing.
Can I have different flavours in my tiered cake or cupcakes?
f course you can! In tiered cakes if a mixture of fruit cake and sponge is required I would advise on having the fruit cake at the base given its weight. The basic principal is that the heavier, denser cake will be the bottom most layer.
For cupcakes, the minimum order for each flavour will be 6 cupcakes.
Can you just ice a cake that I have already made?
We understand the sentimental significance of having a family member bake your cake and we are happy to offer a range of decorations to embellish your cake, however we cannot offer to fully ice your cake due to the many variables that may effect the overall finish. Please take a look at the cupcake and cake toppers, and the sugar flowers available on this website, and we will be happy to give you a quote to supply these.
