• FAQs •

How much does a custom cake cost?2020-03-03T13:05:22+00:00

Our prices start at just £35 for a standard sponge cake with basic decoration. We can work to any budget and would supply a detailed quotation once we’ve had a chat about your requirements.

How do I know what size cake to buy?2020-03-03T13:05:05+00:00

We normally advise that a standard 8 inch round cake would divide into 12-16 generous portions. If you have a number of slices in mind we can help decide on a suitable sized cake for you.

Can you add a name/age/message to a cake?2020-03-03T13:04:39+00:00

Yes and there are many ways that we can do this, depending on the style you are after. Piping is the most traditional but we can also use stamps, paint, chocolate moulds or fondant cutters to get incredible results.

What are the most popular ways to decorate a cake?2020-03-03T13:03:44+00:00

There are many techniques for decorating celebration cakes. Buttercream frosting is the most versatile as it can be either textured or beautifully smooth. Fondant icing covered cakes looks stylish and are great for a smoother, more polished finish.

We love adding extra decorations, be it fresh flowers, fondant decorations, novelty figures or delicate sugar craft flowers.

Painted cakes are also becoming very popular, either using buttercream or edible paints to decorate and transform your cake.

What’s the best sponge for a birthday cake?2020-03-03T13:02:16+00:00

Our most popular birthday cake is the classic vanilla sponge, with vanilla buttercream and jam sandwiched between the layers. Chocolate sponge cake comes a close second which looks great with a chocolate drip and lots of chocs piled on top.
