How to book

A little few helpful notes on how to prepare to book.

first try and find out what style you would like , fondant covered which is really smooth rolled out icing , ganache covered , fairly smooth made with white chocolate and cream so its as delicious as it sounds or semi naked ( where you can see the cake through the ganache / frosting. screen shots of ideas are perfect for creating a mood board. ( please remember I do not copy other cake makers designs however they are useful for visual inspiration )

take into account , your colour scheme / the venue your hiring and the theme , so elegant or rustic. try to get everything to flow , an ornate fancy cake in a barn or a semi naked cake in a fancy castle can sometimes look out of place. however , whimsical or an alternative style can fit almost anywhere … so … i guess im saying choose what you want if you like it <3

size / servings , ok so bluntly , not everyone will eat cake , you know there is so much food at weddings and some people don’t like cake ( we don’t talk about those people 😉 aka savoury people s/ ) so don’t feel like you need enough servings for everyone and then some , unless you love cake then go for it ! a bonus is most of our cakes can be frozen after your event , so if you do have too much , cut it up into slices , wrap in cling film pop in an air tight box and freeze. perfect for breakfast for the rest of the year ! our serving guides are based on 1inch wide by 1 inch deep by 6 inches tall , you don’t have to cut your cake this way, you can cut it 1x2x6 or 2x2x6 or 1x1x6 then half it its your cake to eat as you please , they are just a guide so you can try to estimate the size of cake you like. I always advise my couples to choose a smaller cake if they cant decide , as you can request for it to be bigger closer to the time , but you cannot make your order smaller.

Budget – do you have a budget in mind ? .. so before I made cakes I had no clue on the cost, not I don’t expect you to, if you think of how much you pay for a slice of cake at a coffee shop , allow that for each guest you wish to give cake to. this is pone of the easiest ways to get a rough idea.

cake stands and table dressing – does your venue have a cake stand ? if so ask to see it , check it will fit with your design and colour scheme, we do hire out a few stands so your welcome to ask about these. your cake table , will it only be having the cake on ? if your having an event dresser ask what options are available to showcase your cake , all too often cakes are sent to sit on a lonely undressed table with a creased table cloth while all the other tables are dressed stunningly. just bare it in mind when arranging your other tables , a matching table runner and a few matching decorative items can really tie it together.

how to book , scroll down to see our starting prices and flavour lists , submit an enquiry form , don’t worry its not all set in stone until we have mutually agreed size and design, you secure your order with a £50 non refundable retainer , this saves your date, if you booking is over £200 pre delivery charges you can have a complementary taster box of cakes. if you know you want us to do your cake but your unsure on design and size , your more than welcome to still save your date with us while you gather your inspiration , it means its another tick on your list and you dont need to stress about finding a cake maker. you don’t want to commit until you have tasted our cakes? no problem , you can order a box of tasters for £30
