YOUR CAKEY GUIDE TO YUMMY FLAVOURS
Our goal is to make everyone in the room say yum! And pat their bellies in a satisfied manner. So, we have lots of really lovely flavours that we’ve tweaked and fine-tuned to make you a delicious and flavoursome cake… after all, a cake is a cake and there to be eaten as well as admired.
Choose the same in each tier or mix it on up, whichever takes your fancy…
Chocolate Salted Caramel
Lemon and Elderflower
Carrot and Pecan
Traditional (but not too traditional) Fruitcake
Rich, dark chocolate
Cookies and Cream
This cake is jam-packed with the little devils; in the sponge and in the buttercream, giving the cake a sweet, chocolatey taste with a bash of vanilla on the side. Honestly, this cake rocks!
Strawberry and Champagne
YOUR CAKEY GUIDE TO EVERYTHING ELSE!
Due to the bespoke nature of our iced wedding cakes they are priced based on your specific requirements, but to give you an idea here is a guide for a basic iced wedding cake with a simple ribbon trim, based on finger portions (1” x 1” x 5″):
2 tier – 6″ & 10″ (serving 80) £300
3 tier – 4″, 7″, 10″ (serving 100) £450
4 tier – 4″, 6″, 8″, 10″ (serving 130) £550
5 tier – 4″, 6″, 8″, 10″, 12″ (serving 170) £700
How elaborately you want your wedding cake decorated will determine the final cost, for example having a sugar floral cascade on the cake will cost more than having a few hydrangea blossoms or royal iced pearls.
We’re always keen to try to work to a couple’s cake budget where we can so please don’t be shy, if you have any questions just drop us an email or give us a call.
Our “Naked” and “Semi-naked” wedding cakes start from £300, Buttercream from £350
Our Cupcakes start from £2.75, with a 6” cutting cake from £50 and our iced mini cakes from £8.50.
We also make cookie favours for your guests which start from £2.75 (gift wrapped).
Our minimum order value is £300
Have a look below for three specific pricing examples of iced wedding cakes with more complex decoration than the basic cake…
Laura is a 2 tier ivory and blush-pink wedding cake decorated with handmade sugar roses and peonies, dusted with an edible gold lustre and edible gold leaves and finished off with ivory grosgrain ribbon. Laura’s tiers here are 6″ and 8″
Bella is a 3 tier ivory wedding cake decorated with intricate edible sugar lace on the top and bottom tiers. The middle tier has been painted with edible pearl lustre to give it a heavy sheen and is finished off with a plaque which can be personalised with the bride and groom’s initials.
Lois is a 4 tier ivory wedding cake decorated with clusters of handmade dusky pink and ivory sugar roses and antique gold leaves. The top and third tier are also decorated with edible sugar lace. Finished off with piped pearls and lace ribbon.
Below is a table of popular tier configurations and their approximate portion quantities
|6″ 10″||6″ 8″ 10″||6″ 9″ 12″||6″ 8″ 10″ 12″|
Tradition has it that you keep the top tier for either your first baby’s Christening or your first Wedding Anniversary, so when deciding on the size of your cake remember that if you choose to go with tradition the top tier won’t count when calculating the portions you will need.
If you’re having a relatively small wedding but want a lovely large cake as your focal point we can make the bottom tier from “real” cake, which you would cut into, then the other tiers can be “dummy” tiers, which are made from polystyrene but iced and decorated exactly the same as your real tier.
Just remember when you come to cut the cake to cut the bottom tier instead of the others!
From glass pedestal stands (round or square), American milk glass stands (in a range of colours), Vintage/shabby chic, and multi-tier acetate cupcake stands, there’s a huge choice.
The hire charge is £20 and the deposit charges are as follows;
Glass pedestal stands – £40
Vintage/Shabby chic – £50
Wooden tree slice stand – £40
American milk glass – £80
Multi-tier acetate cupcake stand – £80
The deposit should be paid in cash and once you have returned the stand back to us undamaged (and within a week of your wedding day) your deposit will be paid back to you minus the £20 hire charge.
We’ll be adding pictures here shortly…
Our cakes contain dairy, gluten (wheat) and made in an enviroment that handles nuts and soya. They are suitable for Vegetarians but not suitable for Vegans. Therefore please advise us of any food allergies or speacial requests before you order.
FRESH FLOWERS AND INEDIBLE ITEMS
There’s really nothing like the beauty of fresh flowers and if you decide you’d prefer to have them as opposed to sugar flowers then that’s not a problem at all. Just be aware that not all fresh flowers are suitable to put directly onto cakes due to their toxicity. Check with your florist before you decide, they will be able to advise you on this matter.
We would prefer to attatch the flowers ourselves so we will liaise with your florist before your big day for them to supply them and meet up with them at the venue on the day, then arrange the flowers on the cake. If you have any queries please don’t be shy, we’re here to help you!
Ribbons, brooches, diamantes, pearls, feathers.. There are lots of gorgeous, sparkly items you can add to your wedding cake but these are obviously inedible and MUST be removed from the cake before serving. We will advise the caterers at the venue upon delivery and the items will be noted on their delivery sheet too.
CAKE DECORATING SERVICE
But you’ve already promised your Great-Aunt, (or Grandma or future Mother-In-Law), that they can do the baking for you (perhaps from that old family recipe that’s been handed down through the years!) …
Fear not! This is where we come in… bring your freshly baked cake along to us and we can decorate it for you. We’d just need to have a nice friendly chat with your relation about the shape and size of the cake but we’re extremely nice and we definitely don’t bite!
