My cakes are made from organic flour and free range eggs so that they taste as good as they look, I do not use pre-mixes – just genuine home baking. The decoration will be tailored to your own requirements. I can help and suggest ideas and between us we can create your dream cake, a unique work of art. Working from my own kitchen allows me to provide artisan cakes at competitive prices.
Each cake is freshly baked to your requirements – it can be any flavour you like! I have experimented a lot to find reliable recipes, most people go for Madeira or chocolate sponge, carrot or fruit cake but I am happy to bake you whatever you want. I can cater for anything from your Wedding cake to a cupcake, I also make Wedding Favours. I love the challenge of novelty cakes so bring me your ideas- the dafter the better!
The best way to progress your Wedding order is if we meet up and discuss your requirements, a one to one (or one to two, one to the whole family the choice is yours) meeting where we can discuss ideas, flavours, colours, themes etc these appointments need to be arranged in advance at mutually convenient times, I generally allow an hour for which there is no charge.
As I do not run retail premises fresh cakes have to be baked and various fillings made which if a number of samples are required can be a significant amount of work. For this reason I am introducing a £20 sample fee for four flavours of your choice. If you choose to progress your order this will be discounted from the overall price.
More often than not your venue will include a cake stand as part of your Wedding package, so this is always worth checking first. I do have a small selection of stands that are available to hire for £10 each. I will also need a security deposit that will be returned on the return of the stand. I would like a contact name and number for the person returning the stand, this should take place within four days of the Wedding.
By far the worst bit of my job is delivering the Wedding cake! I wouldn’t wish it on anybody especially the inexperienced. If the cake is exceptionally tall I will often assemble it on site. I will liaise with your venue to establish the best time to complete the delivery. More often than not this is once they have completed dressing the room and the cake table is all set up and ready to go.
Delivery tends to be £20 for local venues but this will increase with the milage. If you are planning on getting Married at the other end of the country I strongly recommend you source a supplier locally.
