- What flavours and designs can you make?
Favourite flavours include vanilla sponge with jam and buttercream, chocolate, fruit, carrot, but I can try just about anything! My newest discovery is a scrummy chocolate orange cake. Mmmmmmmmm.
Designs again can be anything, however I find it useful for clients to provide a few photo's of what they like or have seen already, so that I can get a feel of their 'style'.
- What size do I need?
Portion sizes vary depending on the cake guide, however there is a rough size below to help you out:

- What can I expect to pay?
Each cake is individually designed and made to your exact requirements. Therefore it is hard to give a fixed price but I have drafted some very vague guidelines below for example cakes. I remember when my friend got married before I had ever laid eyes on a cake tin, and thinking that the cake was ridiculously priced given it was just sponge and sugar, but since learning how to do it myself I now know how back-breakingly hard it is to create beautiful cakes (quite literally given you are hunched over some designs for over 30 solid hours), so I hope you understand where the costs originate from, and am sure that you will think it is all worth it when you see the final creation!
Single tier cake from £40
Two tier cakes from £60 (6” and 10”)
Two tier cakes from £85 (8” and 10”)
Three tier cakes from £120 (6”, 8” and 10”)
Three tier cakes from £170 (8", 10" and 12")
Four tier cakes from £220 (6”, 8”, 10” and 12”)
Cupcakes from £1.50 each
- Do you deliver?
Yes I can deliver to your venue or house within Hertfordshire, or you can collect from me in St. Albans, Herts. Some guideline prices for delivery are below:
0-5 miles (from St. Albans) = Free
5-10 miles (from St. Albans) = £4.99
10-20 miles (from St. Albans) = £9.99
20-30 miles (from St. Albans) = £12.99
- How early do I need to confirm dates etc?
The earlier the better, especially during the summer months when weekends get booked up very early for weddings, but you can always drop me a line to check availability, even if your occasion is only a few days away! Ideally this would be approximately 1 month before the delivery date.
- How can I secure my booking?
Once I have confirmed availability and we have discussed the design I will request a non-refundable 25% deposit and that will secure your booking. The deposit will be taken off your final bill, which will be due 2 weeks prior to the date of delivery/collection.
- Do you have stands to present the cakes on?
I do have a couple of cake/cupcake stands, which I can supply on request, however due to past experiences with venue's breaking them I do have to ask for a refundable deposit. This will be refunded on return of the in-tact stand.
