Below are some of the most common questions people ask, but if yours isn’t here please ask!
Do you deliver & set up cakes at the venue?
Yes, I always deliver every cake in person on the day, and setting up at the venue is part of the service. That way you can be sure that it’s perfect & waiting for you when you arrive.
How much is delivery?
Delivery & setting up of wedding cakes to CB, CO & CM postcodes is FREE. For other areas, delivery is charged at 45p/mile, round trip from Sible Hedingham, Essex.
How much notice do you need for a cake order?
There’s no notice period as such – it’s more a case of whether I’m still available for your date. I usually have some bookings up to two years ahead, while others might be made with only a couple of months to spare. Doing everything myself means I can only take a limited number of commissions, and for peak months my calendar can often fill up a year in advance. Therefore please book as early as you can to avoid disappointment. If you’re not yet sure what you want, you can save the date with a £60 deposit, which gives you a firm reservation while you decide on the detail.
Can we come and see you to discuss our wedding cake & sample some of your flavours?
Absolutely – just get in touch to arrange a date. Face-to-face consultations are available by appointment. They’re usually on Saturday afternoons or any time on a Monday, including evening. However if neither of these days works for you please ask, as occasionally other days may be possible depending on my cake load. A selection of four of my cake flavours is provided for you to sample free of charge. (Please let me know if there’s anything you *don’t* like). If you’re happy with those, you can be sure the others will be just as yummy! Then it’s just a case of choosing which ones you’d like for your cake the from the full list.
Do you only make wedding cakes?
Over the last 20-odd years I’ve made every kind of cake imaginable, for every occasion. I couldn’t quite bear to hide them all away, so you can still see some of my favourites here. However I now focus my skills solely on what I’ve always loved most: wedding cakes.
