ASKED QUESTIONS

Below are some of our most frequently asked questions. Please feel free to contact us if your question is not on the list!

How far in advance do I need to place the order for my cake or cupcakes?


If you are only after a small quantity of cupcakes the minimum amount of notice we will need ideally is 2 weeks although please do ask if you need some at short notice and we will do our best to make them for you! As celebration cakes take time to design and prepare for, we will need up to 4 weeks notice which will allow us plenty of time to create your bespoke cake!




Can I choose a mixture of flavours for my wedding cakes?


Of course you can! It's important that there is something for everyone so a combination of flavours is absolutely fine for your wedding cakes and cupcakes. For cupcakes there is a minimum order quantity of 12 cupcakes per flavour and you can have each tier as a different flavour for tiered cakes. Feel free to browse our list of flavours here.




Do you offer free cake consultations?


Definitely! It is very important to be able to have a face to face consultation in order to design your perfect wedding cake and cupcakes and to give you the chance to try some cake of course! Prior to the consultation you will be able to choose 3 flavours to try on the day or take away with you if you need more time to decide! Make sure you bring pictures of styles you like, colour samples and any ideas you have which will help us to design your bespoke cake. During the consultation we will discuss your requirements such as the number of guests you have, the time of your wedding and the venue. After the consultation we will aim to send you a quote within 7 working days. There is no obligation to order if there is anything you are unhappy with but please let us know so we can see if there is anything we can do!




How many people do your cakes feed?


All our cakes come with a cutting guide which will help you obtain the correct number of slices from your cakes!




How long do your cakes last?


As our cupcakes are made with fresh ingredients and contain no preservatives, they will last for around 2-3 days. Our wedding and celebration cakes last up to 5 days after they are cut as long as the cut edges are kept covered. They are best stored in the box that we provide to ensure they are kept at their best!




What is the minimum number of cupcakes I can order?


6 cupcakes is the minimum order quantity.




Do you make character cakes?


Unfortunately we don't make character cakes due to copyright reasons, however we will do our best to create bespoke cakes in a theme or discuss an alternative design with you!




Do you supply cake stands?


We have a large collection of pedestal cake stands and tiered cupcake stands which are available to hire for your big day! Each cake stand has a small hire charge and it will also be required to pay a security deposit which will equate to the total value of the stand. This will be fully refunded to you once the stand has been safely returned along with any packaging.
