How much notice do you need for a Birthday Cake?

Two - four weeks is about right for normal sized birthday cakes - anything with more than one tier or carved cakes should be ordered as soon as possible. 

What about cupcakes - how much notice to guarantee an order?

 Two weeks is perfect for cupcake orders - however if you want over 4 dozen then one months notice is appreciated.

Fondant iced cakes will keep for 2-3 days uncut in a cool room in the delivery box. Cupcakes should be eaten within 24 hours of collection or delivery.

Some say reassuringly expensive!! No seriously a 7" round birthday cake with decorations boxed and ready to party is £49. A dozen hand decorated cupcakes are £30 and Wedding cakes are from £400. Any size or shape cake be made and all non standard cakes are individually priced.

 Can you make my cake Gluten or Egg Free?

 No problem - any ingredient that you have an allergy to can be excluded from your cake. So not nuts - no problem, wheat free or gluten free I can offer flour substitutes and of course no eggs or Vegan cakes will still be as yummy as traditional ones. Just tell me about your allergy when you order.
