Below are some of the most common questions people ask

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.

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.

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.

Absolutely – just get in touch to arrange a date. Face-to-face consultations are available by appointment at Martels Wedding Village in Barnston, usually on Saturday afternoons, or any time on a Monday including evening. A selection of my cake flavours is provided for you to sample when you come – just let me know in advance which ones you’d like to try.

Yes, nowadays I concentrate exclusively on wedding cakes. However 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, just for fun, you can still see some of my favourites here.
