Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much will my cake cost?

A: As I offer a bespoke service, it is difficult to set up a price list as each of my cakes are totally individual. I take into account the number of portions and the complexity of the design and sometimes a smaller cake may take longer to create than a larger one, therefore, it will be priced higher.

Please contact me for a quote but as a guide see below for a rough idea of my starting prices.

Two Tier Wedding cakes from around £225

Three Tier Wedding cakes from around £365

Four Tier cakes from around £450

Cupcakes minimum order 12 from £1.80 each

Novelty Cakes from £65

Q: What areas do you cover?

A: Based in Wighill, I cover areas in and around Tadcaster, Wetherby, York, and Harrogate.

Q: Will you deliver the cake to my venue?

A: Delivery is free within 10 miles of Wighill and for wedding cakes delivery and set up
will be included in your quote unless requested otherwise.

Please contact me for any other delivery requests.

Q: How do I pay for my cake?

A: 50% deposit is required on all novelty cakes with the balance payable on delivery/collection.

For wedding cakes require an initial £50 deposit to secure your wedding date with the balance
payable 6 weeks before your wedding.

Q: What flavour cake can I have?

A: You really can choose pretty much any flavour you like, just ask!

The most popular flavours are:

Chocolate fudge cake with chocolate ganache buttercream.

Vanilla sponge with vanilla bean butter cream and raspberry jam.

Moist carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

Coffee and walnut cake with espresso buttercream.

Luscious lemon cake with lemon curd buttercream.

Traditional rich fruit cake.

Cherry & almond cake.

Q: Can I have different flavour tiers in my wedding cake or a mixture of cupcakes?

A: Yes of course, cupcakes come in multiples of 12 so with this in mind you can have as many flavours as you wish.

The majority of my wedding cakes have at least 2 flavours so you can cater to everyone’s taste.

Q: How much notice do you require to make my cake?

A: With wedding cakes I usually require 3-6 months notice minimum to guarantee your date and May – September is often booked up 12 months in advance so please bear this in mind to avoid disappointment!!

However, if you have a last minute request then please do ask and I will try to help wherever possible.

Q: How big will my cake need to be?

A: The below table will give you a rough guide of the size of cake you will need to order for your event.

If you have a small number of guests but still want that fairy tale tiered cake then it is often
possible to insert some fake tiers to give the illusion of a 4 tiered cake without lots of cake going to waste.
