Frequently Asked Questions

 

THERE ARE NO PRICES ON THE WEBSITE – WHAT ARE YOUR CHARGES?
Due to the fact that every cake is unique and will be a different size or shape please ring or email your requirements and we will gladly provide a quote.

DOES THE PRICE INCLUDE DELIVERY?
Yes the price quoted will include delivery – for which there is no charge locally – and we will set up wedding cakes at the reception venue. If you live further away arrangements can be made for you to collect.

WHAT SHAPE CAN I HAVE?
We have a large selection of cake tins and can also cut large slabs of sponge to shape for novelty cakes – just ask us!

WHAT FLAVOUR CAKE CAN I HAVE?
We are happy to do a rich fruit cake or a lighter recipe with marzipan which has no filling or vanilla, lemon, chocolate, or coffee Madeira with buttercream filling.

DO YOUR CAKES CONTAIN ALCOHOL?
Yes the rich fruit cakes contain Brandy but if you would prefer not just mention it when ordering and we will gladly omit it, as all cakes are made to order.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO MAKE MY WEDDING CAKE?
We would normally ask that you give at least a months notice but if you need one in an emergency give us a call and we will do our best to help you out.

ARE THE FLOWERS ON YOUR CAKES REAL, SILK OR CRAFTED FROM ICING?
When you order your cake please mention which you would prefer although it is nice to have sugar flowers as a keepsake.

CAN I HAVE A CHOCOLATE WEDDING CAKE IN THE SUMMER?
You certainly can! Most chocolate wedding cake designs stand up to the heat very well, even in the height of summer. However, a chocolate wedding cake should not be placed in direct sunlight at any time of year.

DO THE CAKES CONTAIN NUTS OR NUT BASED PRODUCTS?
Yes our cakes do contain nuts – especially the rich fruit ones which obviously also have marzipan which is mostly made of almonds. If you have a nut allergy please contact us and we will discuss this with you and do our best to accommodate your wishes.

DO YOU PRODUCE TAILOR MADE CAKES?
As you can see from the photographs on this website most cake shapes, designs and novelty characters can be made but if you cannot see what you want please contact us with your request.

I WOULD LIKE TO KEEP A TIER OF MY WEDDING CAKE – HOW LONG WILL IT STAY FRESH?
Some couples like to keep the top tier of their wedding cake and then cut it when their first child is christened or cut it to celebrate the first wedding anniversary. We recommend that you do not keep a tier of any wedding cake for more than about a year as the cake will start to deteriorate and start to show through the icing. To store your cake properly we recommend keeping it in an air tight container

HOW WILL I PAY YOU?
We accept cash or cheque – We are sorry we cannot accept credit cards. We also require a small deposit from customers before we undertake production of any cake.
