As each wedding cake is unique and individually designed the price can only be quoted upon the creation of the final design. There are 3 main factors that influence the pricing of a cake:

Costs – the cost of high quality ingredients and all the non edible items (such as dowels, cake boards, boxes, etc)

Time – this would be the time required to create your bespoke design, this varies depending on the level of detail on your cake design and how intricate the structure creation will be as certain elements will always be more time consuming.

Number of portions – A cake that will be serving 150 portions will always be more than a cake serving 25 portions, the costing will change according to the number of portions.

Our starting prices are below as an initial guide.

6” 8” – From £230 (approx 65 wedding portions)
6” 8” 10” – From £455 (approx 130/ 140 wedding portions)
5” 7” 9” 11” – From £610 (approx 160/ 170 wedding portions)

Yes, we also recommend for us to deliver any cake larger than 2 tiers. Our Wedding cake delivery and set up service is charged at a additional cost and prices are dependent on venue location and set up time.

As we specialise in buttercream wedding cakes we do not like to travel too far with them, therefore we only deliver within a 50/60 mile radius of Stanmore, North West London. In the Winter months when cooler we can deliver up to 100 miles away.

Simply put, nope. For all our cakes, we use buttercream or ganache.

Below is a general outline of approximately how many portions (1” x 1.5” 2 sponge layers deep) our most popular cake sizes would serve

6” – approx 20 party portions
7” – approx 30 party portions
8” – approx 40 party portions
9” – approx 50 party portions
10” – approx 60 party portions

All our single tier cakes including our wedding cake tiers consist of 4 sponges. We place a cake card in the middle of the cake separating the bottom two cake sponges and top two cake sponges. This makes it easier to portion up the cake into party/ wedding size portions. We recommend to cut the cake in a grid format to achieve the maximum number of portions neatly.

All our cakes are stored in the fridge before collection/ transportation. We recommend to store our cakes in the fridge, but they must be closer to room temperature when served for the best eating experience. Allow the cake to sit out for approx 2 hours (this will change depending on the season).

Our cakes will cut more easily and cleanly if they are still slightly cold, otherwise use a warm knife (dipped in a jug of hot water) remove the water and make sure to wipe the knife between each cut.

We recommend any left over cake to be wrapped in cling film and placed in an air tight container and stored in the fridge. Make sure the cake is back at room temperature when your ready to enjoy it again!
