Wedding Cakes – The Process


The cost of your cake will depend on the size, flavours and fillings that you choose, as well as the number of tiers and the intricacy of your design. Wedding cakes are very work intensive, often take many days to make and need careful construction. You can get an idea of portion sizes from the Portion Guide below. Please note that the portion numbers given are an ordering guide only as portions will vary depending on how your cake is cut. 

Wedding Cakes are usually bespoke and as the cost of your cake will vary greatly depending on your chosen design please contact us for an accurate quote. You can get an idea of prices from the guide below. Cake tiers are usually 4/5″ deep with 4 layers of sponge and 3 layers of filling to each tier. We offer a wedding portion size of 1″ x 1″ x 5″. If you want to serve your cake as a dessert you will need to double these portions. As well as bespoke designs you can choose a design from our Wedding Cake Gallery.  All our designs can be adjusted to suit your colour scheme and theme as well as your guest numbers.

Flavours & Ingredients

It’s great to be able to offer your guests a choice of different cake flavours and we recommend that you choose at least two different flavours in your cake tiers.   You can even choose to mix sweet and savoury tiers if you are choosing a naked wedding cake! If you have particular dietary requirements then please let us know and we will do our best to help. 

Design Consultations & Tastings

Choosing your wedding cake should be relaxed and fun! We offer design consultations over Zoom, Skype and FaceTime when we can discuss all aspects of your design, flavours and timings for the day. 

Samples by Post

We offer samples by post. Sample boxes are currently on offer for £30 to cover the cost of the samples, postage and packaging and each box contains 6 different flavours. Our flavours change regularly but wherever possible we do our best to include flavours on request. Our delicious boxes of samples are delivered via First Class Royal Mail and are designed to fit through your letter box so they don’t require a signature on delivery. If you’d like to reserve a sample box then please email us.

Ordering & Reserving Your Date

After your consultation and tasting we will provide you with a written quote and a sketch of your chosen design. If you are happy with these and want to go ahead and book your date then we require a £100 non-refundable deposit. The balance for your cake will be payable a month before your wedding date. 


Cake tiers are 5” deep, other depths available on request.  Wedding portions are based on 1” x 1” x 5”. If you are having your cake for dessert portions you will need to double portions.  Please note that prices will vary according to the flavour, size, shape and intricacy of design and use of fresh and sugar flowers which may incur an additional charge. Please feel free to let us know your budget and we can discuss a variety of designs with options for flowers and decorations to suit you as a couple and the style of your wedding celebrations. All our bespoke cakes come with a free Design Consultation over Zoom as well as a design sketch with your quote.
