Frequently Asked Questions


How far in advance do I need to order my cake?

Please try to order your cake as soon as possible. I normally require at least 1 months’ notice for my cake creations. I am on my own, so my diary fills quickly. However it is always worth checking as I can sometimes work on shorter notice periods. Please ring me, email me, or fill in the contact form.


What size cake do I need?

My portion guide is intended as a guide only. The number of people a cake will feed will vary dependant upon how the cake is cut. Please click here for the portion Guide


Do you require a deposit?

Yes non refundable deposits are required. The deposit is 50% of the value of the order. The deposit secures your slot in the diary.


When do I need to pay the balance for my cake?

For Wedding cakes I require the balance to be paid in full 7 days before collection / delivery. For other types of cake the balance can made on the day of collection.


Do you offer allergy-free cakes?

Cakes can be made gluten free / egg free / alcohol free etc, just ask.


What happens if I need to alter my order?

Alterations to designs can be catered for subject to the nature of the request or amount of notice given, please be aware cost increases may be incurred.


What flavours of cake can I have?

Just about any flavour is possible (within reason!) The most popular flavours I get asked for are chocolate, vanilla and lemon but if you would like something a little different then please just ask, as I am sure I can accommodate you.


Can I have different flavours in my tiered cake?

Yes of course you can! If you want fruit cake and sponge cake, I will also recommend that the fruit cake be the bottom tier, as it weighs the most.


Can you do cake toppers and lettering?

Yes! if you want to just order something to go on top a cake you have made yourself that is no problem. prices will depend on the complexity of the topper, so please just contact me for a quote.
