Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my cake cost?

The price of your cake will depend on size and complexity.  Our celebration cakes start at £50 with 3D sculpted cakes and those with modelled figures starting at £75.  The price of Wedding cakes varies enormously depending on number of tiers and style.  As a guide a three tier wedding cake will generally range from £370 to £520 although where fresh flowers or only very simple decoration is required the price will be considerably less.  
 

What size cake will I need?

Rich Fruit cakes are generally served in 1” portions whilst sponge cakes are generally served in 1” x 2” portions. The following table shows the approximate number of portions from round cakes – square cakes will yield more portions.

How much notice do you need?

We get booked up very quickly at certain times of year so we suggest at least 4 weeks notice for celebration cakes and 3 months for Wedding cakes, particularly if you are having rich fruit cake which needs need time to mature, sugar flower sprays or hand modelled figures. If you need your cake quicker than this please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you
