cake is shaped freehand, however we can create a cake to meet the number of
portions you require.

How far in advance should I order my cake?

To avoid disappointment it is better to book your cake in plenty of time.
However, we can sometimes fit cakes in at short notice.
We usually require two months notice on celebration, christening and novelty cakes.
We recommend wedding and civil union cakes are ordered at least three months in advance. Though we advise you to order as early as possible to guarantee availability.

You will always be given order confirmation. Please check it and notify us if anything is not correct. On receiving your order confirmation we will send you an invoice.
Any alterations to the original order must be confirmed in writing and may be subject to an additional charge. Late amendments to orders may be possible, and every effort will be made to accommodate changes, but this cannot be guaranteed.
