• Do you want to know more about choosing your wedding cakes design?
Choosing your wedding cakes DesignAll my cakes are bespoke and made to order. We can either design something new or you can choose a design from my galleries. If you decide to choose a design from my galleries I can, if you desire, change colours and flowers to compliment your specifications.
• Are you wondering whether I do consultations and tastings?
Consultations and cake tastingConsultations are by appointment only with no obligation. Remember to bring along your ideas, and colour samples. If you would like a cake tasting, just ask and I will make you a fresh cake of your choice and you may try a piece of my drambuie fruit cake. This service is free of charge.
• And what about cake flavours?
wedding cake flavoursMy cakes are all lovingly home baked to order, with only the best quality products used.
My FruitcakeRichly flavoured, with lush cognac soaked fruits, wholesome walnuts, apricots and more.
My Chocolate cakeis a beautifully mellow flavoured creation with a smooth, creamy chocolate butter filling.
My Lemon cakeis a Luscious Lemon Drizzler, with a delicate yet zingy lemon butter cream.
My Carrot cakeis moist and melts in the mouth, packed with carrots, nuts and spices and finished with a delicious lemon buttercream.
My Vanilla sponge cakeis a traditionl sponge with vanilla butter cream and jam, traditionaly strawberry. And of course, if YOU have a special recipe you'd like me to try out, don't hesitate to ask me - I'm open to suggestions.
Eggless cakeMy eggless Vanilla sponge cake; a beautiful moist mix, with vanilla butter cream and jam. Coming from the school of 'cakes must have eggs', I came to this recipie with reluctance, But the result was amazing. I really love it, it's scrumptious!

• When should you order your wedding cakes?
Ordering your wedding cakesI recommend a minimum of 3 months notice when ordering wedding and civil ceremony cakes. I accept orders at shorter notice, depending on my availability on your wedding day. If your wedding/civil ceremony is in the busy wedding months, order your cake as soon as possible: I am always turning away customers!
• And what about delivery and setting up?
Delivery and set upIf you like to have your cake delivered and set up, I offer the following service.
Local delivery is free of charge. For central London I charge £25.
Delivery for the rest of the country, I charge £1 per mile (one-way) from N14 7DG.
If you would rather pick the cake up yourself, I have the cake ready and boxed for
you the day before the wedding if it is a sponge cake; for a fruitcake it can be
picked up much earlier.
• And how do you arrange payment?
PaymentTo confirm an order, a non-refundable deposit of £50 is required. The final balance is due one week before the delivery or on collection of the cake. I accept payment by cheque and BACS transfer.
• Do you arrange wedding cakes stand hire?
Cake stand hireI supply all of the stands for my wedding cakes. A cheque deposit of £100 is required. This is held in your file until the stand is returned to me. Stands must be returned within 4 days. You can request to return it later, but this is only possible if the stand isn't already required the following week. Most Venues have their own silver cake stands. I have some of my own cake stands which are especially useful for the bigger cakes.
