Our Cakes

All our cakes, however simple the design, are made to order. This means that even the most straightforward of cakes are bespoke - the flavour, shape, colour and size are up to you. If you would like a themed design, you will need to allow at least 3 days' notice - see the section below for more details about our bespoke cake designs. If you're in a hurry and you want something simple, you can order from our Simply Sweet range with just 24 hours' notice. 

Bespoke Designs

If you are looking for a unique design for your cake, you will find lots of examples in our Gallery. This is not exhaustive - all our cakes are bespoke, so we can make any design whether it is something that has been tried in the past or not. For some inspiration and ideas of what has been popular with other customers, click on one of the categories below. If you have an idea of your own, get in touch with a description and/or images and we can create a design just for you. We pride ourselves on making every cake that goes out of the door unique and tailored to the customer, so whether you have a very vague or a very specific idea in mind, we can work together to create something just for you. Send us a website message if you have an idea and you'd like to start discussing it.

Prices

As all our cakes are bespoke, you must get in touch with as many details as possible in order for us to give you a quote, but below will give you an idea of our pricing structure.

Size  Number of Portions  Sponge (any flavour) Rainbow  Fruit 
Small 6" 8-10  £25 £35  £30 
Medium 8" 12-20 £35 £50 £40
Large 10" 25-36 £45 £65 £50
X-Large 12" 40-60 £55 £80 £60

Cakes can be round or square, depending on your preference and the design. This price includes icing in your choice of colour (either buttercream or sugarpaste) and a message on top. Our popular piped rose buttercream covering is just an additional £5.

Bespoke designs cost an additional £10-20 depending on the level of detail involved in the design, and handmade 3D figurines cost £10 each in addition to this.

Rainbow cakes are considerably taller than normal sponge cakes, so will give you around 20% more portions than a normal cake of the same size.

Two tiered cakes start from £80, but do get in touch for a quote as the price for tiered cakes varies greatly based on the size and design.
