We bake and decorate for you, the cake of your dreams, to your specific requirements. You can either select one of the many cake designs that we have on display on our website where you can view the costs to purchase, or we can personalise a cake that is of your creation.
With most new creations we would like to meet with you and put together a design and quote based on your ideas and preferences, as you may wish to have something completely different to what we have produced before....but that is what we love to do. We also offer an online service where I'm more than happy to communicate by email and phone if that is whats easier for you and your circumstances.
Come and join us for the Grand Opening on Saturday the 30th April 2019.

We have been working tirelessly to open our new store 3rd April 2019. We are currently designing the interior and the kitchen and eagerly await the day we can present to you our freshly baked and intricately designs creations. Please contact us with your orders and pre-ordered cakes will be available to pickup from Saturday 6th April. Cakes that require more than a week to prepare may not be available until 12th April.
Q. How much does a cake cost?
A. Most cakes are individually designed and require an individual quote to suit the specific details and time required to create it. However there are some cakes that are listed with an exact price and so long as no adjustments are made to the design, the price will remain
Q. How much notice is required to produce a cake of my design?
A. We would have to discuss with you exactly what type and design you are after which would greatly effect the timeline to produce your cake, but normally we would require at least 7 days notice.
Q. Can you make gluten free, egg free, dairy free, nut free cakes?
A. Unfortunately, due to the fact that many of my ingredients are manufactured and packed in factories that have allergens on the premises, I cannot guarantee them to be gluten and nut free. However I have created in the past egg and dairy free cakes.
Q. Why are cakes so expensive ?
A. Every cake I make is made from quality and locally sourced materials where ever possible and made only by me, from the baking through to the decorating. I proudly manage each step of its creation. I will work with you to establish its design and you will be able to, email me and call to discuss any aspect of your design. I will spend hours lovingly attending to every detail, with most cakes taking several hours and some taking many many more over a period of days and sometimes weeks.
Q. What flavour cakes and fillings do you do?
.A. I have my standard white mud, chocolate mud and variations of those with added flavourings.. I can also create other favourites such as mocha, coffee, caramel, raspberry and white chocolate, orange poppyseed. Fillings can be buttercream or ganache and flavoured to suit the cake. There are many more possible flavours and I'm happy to explore extravagant and exotic flavours with you when you place your order.
Q. Should I choose sugar flowers or fresh flowers for my wedding cake?
A. Sugar flowers always look great. They will survive time, most weather conditions and are generally rather uniform and orderly. Fresh flowers look spectacular and are a popular choice however you are generally restricted to their availability if out of season and they require some care so as not to deteriorate before your big event. I find the cost of the 2 similar. Sugar flowers are time consuming to make and require talent. Fresh flowers need their own preparations to render them safe to be placed on the cake, have a limited life span and will require the attention of either myself or another competent person to place at the time of the event.
Q. How do I transfer my cake ?
A. Your cake will most likely be quite stable and I recommend carrying them on your lap in the car if they are not too heavy. or on a flat cleared space like the boot or the floor of the car.
Q. How should I store my cake once I get it home?
A. Fondant covered cakes are best stored out of direct sunlight and away from possible disasters, and certainly NO FRIDGE. Buttercream and ganache covered cakes will require the fridge unless it is to be consumed within a few hours. ALL cakes are best eaten at room temperature..
Q. How long will my cake last ?
A. Your cake will be ok to eat for up to 3 days after you've picked it up. Cakes, once cut, should be stored in the fridge, however they are best eaten at room temperature so get them out about an hour beforehand to take the chill off them.
Q. Do you provide cake stands ?
A. Currently I don't however I can direct you to where you may find one to hire. This will require some planning as you'll be required to book in advance, travel to pick up and place a deposit/bond to guarantee return. I intend on stocking cake stands in the near future.
Q. Do I need to pay a deposit ?
A. For all cakes that are ordered, a 50% deposit is required.
Q. Do you deliver ?
A. Unfortunately I cannot offer a delivery service however I can open the shop out of hours for a pick up
Q. Should I order a square cake or a round ?
A. I personally think that a round cake looks better however a square cake is much easier to serve as there is no wastage from edges that end up being only icing unless you cut the smaller cakes into wedges.
Cake size is normally decided based upon the number of serves it yields. It's important to think about whether the cake is for a children's party, served as a dessert accompanied by fruit and cream for instance, or a smaller 'coffee' slice at the conclusion of your event. Please consider also if you would like to have enough over to enjoy the next day. The number of serves below is merely a guide for basic covered cakes. Discuss with me your special event to ascertain your requirements
10-14 dessert serves, suitable for up to 20 serves
20-25 dessert serves, suitable for up to 40 serves
30-40 dessert serves, suitable for up to 65 serves.
Tiered cakes can be supplied in any size from 4" through to the larger 14". Each cake is 2.5" - 3" or approximately 7-8 cm in height. Cakes can be layered with flavoured buttercream , ganache or left unlayered as mud cakes often are. Multiple tiers are always joined with either a buttercream or ganache.
A single tier cake is normally 4" (approx 9cm) in height and can be any of the above sizes mentioned.
Please note that we also have larger square tins if you are looking at serving up to 100 guests and would just prefer a single tier.
A multiple tiered cake consists of a larger cake at the base and smaller cakes on top. An effective way to gain height in a cake, making an impression and allowing you to serve more guests. The steps of the tiers are a wonderful way to support trailing flowers or other decoration.
A tall cake is defined as cakes of equal size placed on top of one another without having a tiered look, It is a great way to gain extra height and a great option for the dramatic drip cakes, watercolour buttercreams and unicorn cakes
Cupcakes are an effective way to serve your celebration cake. There is an enormous range of flavours. If you can think of a flavour I can probably make it.
Basic flavours consist of chocolate mud, white mud, lemon, apple and cinnamon, banana, carrot, red velvet
Delux flavours consist of hummingbird, mocha, caramel mud, orange and poppy seed, raspberry/almond/yoghurt, coconut, orange /almond, mocha spice
