FLAVOURS

Each tier of my party cakes is made up of three layers of moist sponge cake filled with Swiss meringue buttercream and any other relevant fillings such as fruit conserves, curds or home-made caramel.

 

  • Fondant iced cakes are covered in white or plain chocolate ganache and finished with fondant icing.

  • Buttercream cakes are generously covered with Swiss meringue buttercream.

  • Semi-naked cakes are thinly covered with Swiss meringue buttercream so you can still see the cake layers.

 

Below are some popular flavours. If you cannot see your favourite flavour combination, just ask and I will do my best to provide it for you.

ALLERGENS

I bake exclusively gluten-free, which simply means I use a special flour blend. There are no strange additional ingredients and the cakes taste just like ‘normal’ cake so everyone will enjoy them.

Take a look at the feedback from previous happy customers and you will see that many people don't even realise the cake is gluten-free.

 

If you're still unsure, come and see me at a wedding fair and try a cake sample, or order a taster box. Just get in touch.

Depending on the cake flavour required, many cakes can be prepared dairy free, egg free or vegan.

Most of my cakes don't contain nuts, however my kitchen is not certified nut-free.

 

PORTION GUIDE

 

What is a cake portion anyway, and why is it important?

The general rule of thumb is a finger portion is 1" x 1" x the height of the cake and a dessert or party portion is 1" x 2" x the height of the cake. ⁠

I recommend 1" x 2" portions for party cakes.

PRICE GUIDE

 

As your cake will be designed to your individual requirements, the total price will depend on the size of your cake and the level of decoration. I can provide you with a detailed quote once we have discussed your requirements for your special cake.

The smallest party cake size I make is 6" round which will give approx 10 party portions.

 

Prices start at:

£85 for fondant finish

£65 for buttercream

 

PLEASE NOTE: The prices listed above are subject to change and are adjusted as required with increases in supply costs etc. If your wedding or celebration is next year, or the year after, the price may be adjusted for estimated cost increases.
