I want a quote on a cake, what do I do?
Because all of my cakes are custom made especially for your specific flavour and decoration I need you to provide for me the following information to create a quote:
- The DATE of your event
- The cake flavour/ or flavours you like best (You can have a look at flavours on my page in the Creating a Cake section – FLAVOURS
- A particular theme or decoration idea your thinking of (And if you don’t have an idea yet Im happy to help with this!)
- The number of serves you require
- If the cake is to be the main dessert
If your after cupcakes, cake pops or macarons the same information applies for me to be able to provide you with a quote.
I don’t know what kind of style I want, where do I start?
I am more than happy to provide a personal consultation (either in person or over the phone) to help you make a decision for what you want for your special event.
I do suggest the internet as an amazing source of cake inspiration, Google Search or Pinterest is an excellent place to start and will provide you with endless beautiful ideas and inspiration for what I could do for you!
If you don’t know what you want to look for a simple search tailored to the event colours, theme, age (eg: ‘Wedding Cake’ or ‘Gold and White themed cake’ or ‘5th birthday pink’) will get you started.
I am happy for you to send me pictures of ideas that you have via email or Facebook messenger!

How much notice do I need to give for an order?
I appreciate at least a weeks’ notice for macaron, cake pop and cupcake orders.
At least 2 – 6 weeks’ notice is preferred for specialty cakes and wedding cakes.
All orders are subject to availability dependent upon how many other orders I have at the time.
So to avoid disappointment please contact me as early as possible to secure your date and order.
However, if I am not overly busy I am happy to accommodate rush orders where I can.
(So if your trying to book in with less than a weeks’ notice best to give me a call asap)
Can you do logos and or printed pictures on your cakes?
At this stage no, however with more than 2 weeks’ notice I can cater to your needs through one of my suppliers!
What is your method of payment?
Payment can be made in cash at time of pickup/delivery, PayPal or direct deposit prior to delivery.
Some Wedding and Specialty Cakes will require a deposit be paid at time of confirmation of order.
Will I need to refrigerate my cake?
Normally No, I make my cakes, cupcakes and macaroons with non-perishable items and fillings to avoid the need to refrigerate, especially for large orders.
I suggest keeping all orders in a cool, dry place – room temperature or air conditioning is perfect.
However, if you want a particular filling (e.g.: fresh cream, chocolate mousse, fresh fruit) it will require refrigeration.
Macarons are the exception and most will require refrigeration until serving or display.
Do you cater for special dietary requirements?
So long as you let me know when you place or confirm your order what dietary requirements I need to cater for I can accommodate.
I have a well-tested selection of recipes to cater for different dietary requirements including but not limited to:
- – Gluten Free
- – Dairy Free
- – Egg Free
- – Nut Free
