Our Wedding Cakes

Whether you are planning a vintage style wedding or a contemporary celebration, a tiered cake or a cupcake tower, elegant or rustic, we absolutely love to design cakes around the theme and style of your special day.

Working from our home kitchen, we provide a friendly and professional service, from the initial contact to the setting up of your cakes at your reception venue.

Prices & Enquiring

cake tastersAs you can imagine, wedding cakes can vary considerably in size, detail and decoration.  As a very general guide, our wedding cupcakes start from £2.00 each.  Our tiered wedding cakes start from £260.00 for a plain iced sponge 3 tier cake with ribbon trim.

Best thing is to email us first of all and we can happily give you an initial quote for what you have in mind.  Remember to tell us your wedding date, how many guests you will have, and roughly what you have in mind in terms of cake style and design.

We also enjoy meeting you and offer Wedding Cake Consultations so you can chat through your ideas with us in more detail and try some of our cake at the same time (Consultations are by appointment only, drop us an email and we can pop a date in the diary for you to visit).

Our next Wedding Cake Consultation Day is Saturday 22nd April 2017.
