Below you will find information on pricing, consultations, portioning, health & safety and deliveries. If you require any additional information or would like to discuss your order, please get in touch.
 

I suggest a minimum of 6 months notice for wedding cakes. May, June, July and August are typically my busiest months, therefore its advisable to place your order as soon as possible.
Orders at short notice will be considered.
 

Prices

Every cake that I create is bespoke, therefore my price will vary according to the design chosen, the flavour and the number of people the cake is to feed.

Please use this as a rough guide.

Consultations


I offer a consultation for every couple at home in my kitchen. The appointment is made for a time to suit you, which does include some evenings, and also weekends. The consultation usually lasts about an hour during which I offer a tasting session of up to 4 flavours of your choice.

I ask that you bring with you any images of wedding cakes you’ve seen that inspire you, along with details of your theme, colour scheme and any pictures you have of your dress or flowers that you have chosen. I can draw lots of ideas and detail from this information and together we can visualise your ‘dream cake’.

Should you be unable to attend a face-to-face consultation, then I am happy to send tasting samples via the post at a cost of £15 plus P&P – this money will be deducted from the total price should you choose to book with me.

After the consultation, I will email you my quotation for the design and ideas discussed.

I charge a fee of £25 for my consultations which is refunded should you choose to proceed with my quotation.

Portioning

During your consultation, I will ask you whether the cake is to be served as a dessert, or with coffee; this will determine the portioning size and how many people the cake is to feed.

I generally recommend that wedding cakes be cut in the following grid portion:

Dessert Portion: 1" x 2"

Coffee Portion: 1" x 1"

For celebration cakes, I recommend 1” x 2” portions.

 

Delivery


Wedding Cakes can be delivered throughout Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties. I offer free delivery within a 15 mile radius; deliveries outside of this radius are charged per mile.

I also offer set up and table dressing at the venue. Please request a quotation for this during our consultation if you would like to use this service.

You are also welcome to collect your cake from my home. If you choose this option, it is then your responsibility to ensure the safety of the cake until it reaches its required destination. I cannot be held liable for any damage to the cake after it has been collected. Assembly and storage instructions will be
provided by me at collection.

Health & Safety Advice


Any allergens in your cake will be clearly labelled on the box. Please check these carefully.

If you have ordered a tiered cake, please be aware that there will be a thin cake board between the tiers and wooden or plastic dowelling rods in the bottom tiers for support. These should be removed before cutting. Once you separate the tiers, you will see them sticking out of the cake; they can be easily removed.

Please ensure that any non-edible decorations are removed from the cake before serving.

If fresh flowers are being used on the cake it is the responsibility of the florist to determine flower safety and safe food practices.
