How to Order
We make all kinds of cakes, from a bunch of delicate handmade sugar flowers for a cake you have made to a simple buttercream birthday cake through to a custom made multi tiered wedding cake.
The first step is to contact us to discuss your requirements. The more information we have (type of event, date, time, number of cake servings, size of servings, style of decoration etc) the better. Werecommend getting in touch at least two weeks before you require a celebration cake and three months before you require a wedding cake. Many couples book our services six months to a year before their big day.
For wedding cakes or large, intricate celebration cakes, we like to have a consultation at our kitchen studio in Cholesbury, Buckinghamshire (between Berkhamsted, Tring and Chesham) to discuss the design of your cake and provide you with some cake samples for tasting.
If a consultation is not necessary, a sample box can either be posted to you or collected. The cost of a sample box is £15 (redeemable against your final invoice).
We then prepare a detailed quote and design sketch of your cake/dessert table and require a 50% deposit to secure the date.
We are based in Cholesbury, between the towns of Berkhamsted, Chesham and Tring, approximately 35 miles north west of London (30 mins on the train from Euston). We can deliver to London, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and beyond. Local delivery is free and further afield is quoted individually.
We generally like to have an initial consultation in order to discuss the type and style of your wedding cake. A tasting may also be included. We can accommodate most budgets but it is important to remember that complex cakes can take more than 25 hours to complete and even the simplest cake will still be five to ten hours work from start to finish.
