Frequently Asked Questions

Unfortunately I am not in the position to be able to cater for anyone with any allergies or dietary requirements. Nuts are used in the kitchen aswell as ingredients containing traces of nuts.

Yes, most of my Bakes are vegetarian friendly however please confirm before placing an order to ensure certain ingredients aren’t being used (e.g.marshmallows and some sprinkles)

To place an order for celebration cake please go to the request form page here, please include the date you would need the cake, the theme you’d like and how many people it would need to feed. I will then confirm if that date is available and we can then discuss design/quotes.

This depends on how busy I am for the date you would need it, I would usually recommend booking atleast 4 weeks in advance to guarentee the date you would like.

As much as I would love to help you out, the easy answer for this is no… sorry

I’m based in the outbuilding kitchen infront of the drive. (if your facing the house it’s to the left)

Celebration cakes are collection only (wedding cakes have a delivery option, this can be communicated when you submit your request form)
When collecting please bring someone with you to either hold the cake or drive, it’s not a good idea to put it on the passenger seat, and some of my cakes won’t fit in the footwell.

When we have our short but sweet summer months please make sure you do everything possible to keep the car cool even before leaving (Park in shade and put aircon on the way to collect, some people have even used ice blocks around the cake box)
Once you get the cake to the venue keep out of direct sunlight. If it’s a fondant cake store it in the coolest room, if it’s a buttercream cake store it in the fridge until half an hour before cutting.

The best way to cut a tall cake is using a chopping board to hold the slice you’re cutting in place and cut longways to get tall fingers to get the most slices out of the cake. Please check out my video on how to cut tall cakes.

To ensure your cake stays as fresh as possible, please follow the below guidelines:

  • Once you have cut the cake (please see How to Cut tall cake section for a handy video) cover any exposed cake with foil/ cling film and store in an airtight container.
  • Keep at room temperature in a cool and dry place.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight.
  • Only store buttercream cakes in the fridge during hot summer days  (if you store a fondant cake in the fridge the icing will become very sticky once back to room temperature)
