I need 100 cupcakes for a wedding - Can you do that?

Yes absolutely! I can make any number of cakes that you require and I can mix & match the flavours too.

Do you have a cake stand that I can use?

Yes I have a stand which I hire out for cupcakes (holds around 100) and if your venue does not supply a stand for your wedding cake I can organise this too. Some brides like to have the option of keeping their cake stand as a keepsake and again this is no problem.

I have a very specific design in mind. Can you work with this?

Yes, all my cakes are bespoke and I can work around any design. I often find that cakes evolve from an original idea and during the consultation we can discuss the various flavours and design options. On the other hand if you are feeling a little overwhelmed and confused by all the choices I am happy to guide you through and come up with some suggestions to suit you.

I have a lace/ruffle wedding dress. Can you incorporate this into the cake?

Many dress designers will happily give you a sample of your dress material (once you have purchased it). I can then use this to personalise your cake. Similarly if you wish to match a particular colour for example flowers or bridesmaids dresses I can do this also.

Do you deliver & set up?

Yes, I think it is important for me to set the cake up at your venue whenever possible to ensure that it is set up correctly – I also love seeing them in the venue!.

Can I have a taster of your cakes?

Yes when we arrange a consultation I will discuss this with you.

Do you come to us to discuss the cake?

I prefer to do my consultations at home in my cake studio where possible. I find this works best as I have everything I need on hand and it also gives you an opportunity to see where I work. However if this is not possible we can come up with another arrangement and obviously I am happy to discuss things by email or over the phone, the only thing

What is a consultation?

We sit down, have a cup of tea/coffee, taste some cakes and talk about your ideas for your beautiful wedding cake!

As all cakes are bespoke they are priced on an individual basis and after the initial consultation I will provide you with a comprehensive quote. However I do understand it is useful to have some idea of prices so by liasing beforehand by email or phone we can discuss this.

How much notice do you require?

As a general guide I usually need at least 3 months notice, however I do get booked up very quickly, particularly during the summer months so I would recommend booking as soon as you can. Your wedding date can be secured with a £50 non refundable booking fee.

What is a 'false' tier?

A non-cake tier may be introduced to add scale and drama to a design. Any false tiers incorporated into your design will be decorated in the same manner as the remainder of the cake. Also known as a “dummy” tier.

Can you mix flavours for different tiers?

Absolutely! We encourage at least two flavours of cake to offer guests a choice. Fruit is more appropriate in the lower tiers for transporting.

Do you supply flowers?

Fresh flowers dress a cake beautifully and look amazing. We do not supply the flowers for your cake, however we are very happy to liaise with your florist. Some flowers are toxic and cannot be put on cakes, your florist will be able to advise you.

Sugarcraft flowers are a wonderful alternative and can be kept as a momento of your special day.

How much notice do you need to make a wedding cake?

We advise booking your wedding cake at least three to six months before your wedding. Spring and summer wedding dates book quickly.  We can occasionally work to shorter notice depending on availability.
