Secondly, am I available?

I will only take on a limited number of bookings per month, this means I will become fully booked more quickly. It also means you can expect a more exclusive level of service....unlike most cake designers I will not be working on multiple other cakes at the same time as yours, you can be sure your cake will not be rushed and it will be given the undivided love, care and attention it deserves. Please message us via our website 'Contact Us' page to see if I am available to make your dream wedding cake.

What happens next?

Once availability is confirmed for your date we can discuss initial your wedding cake ideas and an estimated price. Don't worry if you are unsure on design details as many people secure their date long before they have finalised a design for their wedding cake. We can discuss my pricing structure to ensure this works for your wedding cake budget.

All wedding cakes require a booking fee of £150; this is a non-refundable and non-transferable deposit which ensures your date is booked into my diary. We work on a first come first served basis and dates cannot be held without a deposit.

We recommend a consultation around 3 to 6 months before your wedding date to finalise the design details and discuss delivery. Consultations are for two people only and are usually held during weekdays at my home cake studio. As summer is such a busy time for making wedding cakes consultations are held in late autumn, winter or early spring. Please note we do not offer design consultations for simple buttercream cakes with fresh flowers.

We will confirm your chosen design along with flavour choices around 2 months before your wedding date and also send a final invoice for any outstanding payments. The remaining payment is due by bank transfer one calendar month before the wedding date.

a moment of deliciousness with our cake sample boxes

Our luxurious cake sample boxes are are complimentary for all our couples and give you the opportunity to try some of our popular cake flavours (one box per couple, further boxes can be purchased if required). These can be either be collected after securing your date or given during the consultation, they can also be posted for an additional cost. Please select up to 4 flavours from our menu, if you select less we will add some of our most popular favourites for you to try. Regrettably fruit cake is not available as a sample.
