Ordering


Time

Please allow two days for a traybake to be ready for delivery. For toppers, some straightforward designs can be done quite quickly, whereas more complicated characters and figures may require longer. Please contact me to discuss your requirements. For custom cakes, please allow 4-6 weeks. For wedding cakes, it is advisable to book a consultation at least 3 months, but preferably 6 months before the date.

Sizes

Traybakes give 25 generous portions. Cakes can be made in various shapes, sizes and designs to suit your needs, but as a guide it is best to start with the number of servings you are hoping to have.

This guide is based on a slice 1" x 1", or ½" x 1½" of rich fruitcake, and 1" x 2" of sponge cake approximately

Flavours

I am always experimenting with flavours, so please feel free to discuss any ideas you may have. My current specialities and common requests are rich fruit (available alcohol free), vanilla, chocolate, chocolate-orange, lemon, carrot and coffee.

Prices

All traybakes, cakes and toppers vary in price according to the ingredients you may wish to have, the size and design. I am always happy to provide you with a quote, but as a guide:

  • Traybakes start from £14.

  • Custom cakes start from £40 for a single tier.

  • Wedding cakes start from £90 for a two tiers, £115 for 3 tiers and £140 for 4 tiers.

Deposit and payments

For cakes, a 25% deposit is required within 2 weeks of the initial consultation. The final balance will be due 4 weeks prior to delivery. Any alterations to the date of delivery or details of the cake need to be made in writing as soon as possible and may result in additional charges to be confirmed before proceeding.

Wedding cake consultations

In order to have the perfect cake for the day, a face to face consultation and tasting is highly advisable. This will incur a £15 charge that will be deducted from the final cost if an order is made.
