When should I book my wedding cake?
Try to order your Wedding Cake at least six months in advance to give us plenty of
time to book you into our schedule. We cannot always accept orders for ‘last minute
cakes’ but please enquire – we even surprise ourselves sometimes!
I don’t like fruitcake; can we have a sponge?
Yes, of course. You may choose any flavour you wish from a tried and tested chocolate fruit nut and biscuit cake (known as a fridge cake) for the chocoholics amongst us, lemon sponge with lemon butter cream, chocolate sponge with chocolate butter cream (or vanilla if you prefer), coffee sponge, coffee and walnut sponge with coffee butter cream, classic carrot cake with cream cheese filling the options are endless and we are happy to welcome your input for a new flavour option
Can you decorate a cake made by my mum ?
Unfortunately this is not something we would be able to do for you as correct storage and cooking is vital and we would not be able to be responsible for any mishaps so thus we decline this option I am afraid
Can we have fresh flowers?
We are happy to supply a plain iced cake and deliver this to your venue for your florist to decorate in a style to match your Wedding bouquets
Can we keep the top tier for an Anniversary?
Fruitcakes can only safely be kept for a few months once decorated and sponges need to be eaten within a week. It is possible to freeze cakes and then re-ice them for an anniversary, though you may prefer to do this with a larger, middle tier. Better still is to order a fresh Anniversary or Christening Cake made to the same delicious recipe!
How should I store sugarcraft bouquets and decorations?
These should be kept out of direct sunlight, which can fade colours. Ideally flowers need a dry environment with some air circulation, inside a glass cabinet would be ideal. Perspex containers can also be purchased so you can put your flowers on display and continue to enjoy them long after your Wedding
I’ve chosen the design I want but I’m going to need a lot more cake to feed my guests.
Square cutting cakes can be provided, these will be covered in the same style as your main Wedding Cake and cut behind the scenes to provide extra slices for all your guests.
I’ve really set
my heart on a three tier cake but we’ll never eat that much!
Certain tiers can easily be substituted for dummy cakes, which are iced in exactly the same way as the real cake, and no one will
be able to tell the difference, so long as you don’t cut into the dummy at the reception!
I have seen a cake I would like in a wedding magazine can you make a replica for me?
We are happy to look at your pictures and inspirations and recreate the cake you have your heart set on as closely as possible
We hope this has helped with some of the questions you have but if you would like to pose any others please feel free to contact us.
