FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

HOW MUCH ARE YOUR CAKES?

As each cake is bespoke the prices will vary according to the size and complexity of the design of the cake.

Basic costs are detailed on this website. 

However, for a more accurate quote please contact me to discuss your requirements.

 


HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I ORDER MY CAKE?

In order to secure your required date please try to order your cake as soon as possible.

Cakes and Toppers should ideally be booked up to 3 months in advance.

Wedding Cakes should be booked ideally at least 6 months prior to the event.

I may be able to take orders closer to the date but this would depend on my availability.

Please contact me by either email or message me on my Facebook page or fill in the contact form.
 

WHAT SIZE CAKE WILL I NEED?

      The size of your cake will depend on how many people you will be catering for.

Please take a look at the portion guide which is intended as a guide only.

Instead of having one large cake why not consider a tiered cake, this way you could have different flavours in each tier.

The number of people a cake will feed will vary and depend upon how the cake is cut.
See portion guide here.
 

WHAT FLAVOURS OF CAKE CAN I HAVE?
        The most popular flavours are vanilla, chocolate and lemon.

However if you have a another preferred flavour just contact me and I’ll see what I can do!

It truly is a bespoke service.

CAN I HAVE DIFFERENT FLAVOURS IN MY TIERED CAKE?
        Yes, different tiers can be different flavours.

However, if a heavier cake such as fruit cake or carrot cake is required along with a sponge cake tier I would always recommend that this be placed as the bottom tier.

 

DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
       The deposit is 50% of the value of the order and secures your slot in the diary.

Please see Terms and Conditions for full details.
 

WHEN DO I NEED TO PAY THE BALANCE FOR MY CAKE?
        I require the balance to be  fully paid prior to collection. 

Cakes will not be released without payment being received in full prior to collection.

Please see Terms and Conditions for full details.
 

DO YOU OFFER ALLERGY-FREE CAKES?
        Cakes can be made gluten free /  alcohol free etc if requested.

However as nuts are used regularly in my kitchen it would not be possible to offer a nut-free option.

Please see Terms and Conditions - Allergies & Special Dietary Requirements.

 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO ALTER MY ORDER?

        Please see Terms and Conditions for full details.
 

WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY ORDER?
        Please see Terms and Conditions for full details.

CAN YOU DELIVER?

I would recommend that Wedding Cakes are delivered and set up at the venue by myself.

The charge for this service will be incorporated in your Wedding Cake quote.

Celebration cakes and cupcakes would usually be collected from The Barn.  

However I am able to deliver but this would incur a small charge starting at £5.00 and would increase depending on distance needed to travel.

This would need to be arranged when ordering and the price would be added to the overall price when booking.
