How soon should I order my cake?
It is normal to book your wedding cake 6 months to 9 months in advance. However if you want to be organised for your big day then feel free to get in touch any time, some brides like to book more than a year in advance. If you are short of time then it may be more difficult to find a professional cake decorator able to craft your cake. It is sometimes possible to make celebration cakes and cupcakes at short notice. I am always happy to try and help.
How much does a cake cost?
. This is a difficult question to answer as cakes come in so many different sizes and styles. A three tier wedding cake usually starts at £275 for a 10inch 8inch and 6inch, but depending on your budget and your requirements this can be less or more.
. Celebration cakes start at £55 with a simple decoration, two tier celebration cakes start at £85 Carved cakes start at £85.
. Cupcakes with a simple decoration start at £2.00 For an accurate price please contact me with your requirements.
All these prices are 'approximate prices, as the final price depends on the size and detail required. No matter what your budget contact us and we will try to work within that.
How big should my wedding cake be?
.This can depend on the amount of guests coming to your wedding. As a rough guide a 6 " 8" and 10" cake would be suitable for around 60 guests. Whether you want a bigger cake, or a smaller cake, we can always work to your number of guests. We can do this by either supplying a cutting cake if your cake will not be big enough or if you want a large cake but not a lot of cake we can add dummy cakes for one or more tiers.
