The question is …’How much?’…….
We have to cost for materials that perhaps you haven’t thought about: ingredients, fuel, website, communication, insurance, cake board, presentation box, our expertise and skills etc. To create elaborate sugar work takes time , it is labour intensive but you are rewarded with a truly stunning cake. With this in mind and so many different elements to each cake it is impossible to give a one price fits all ……however we know how important a budget can be and have provided a general structure below to give you an idea of costs.
All our cakes are between 4” – 5” deep and prices shown are for a round vanilla sponge cake filled and covered with vanilla buttercream, a smooth covering of white sugarpaste* finished with a matching ribbon and a beautifully iced cake board with a ribbon trim. Please see our flavours page for ideas, we are more than happy to bake your favourite!
* Our sugarpaste is free from dairy, gluten, cholesterol, is vegetarian and vegan friendly and it tastes fab too!
Bespoke decoration i.e. sugar work, cake artistry, lettering, fresh flowers, fruit, novelty items etc are in addition to the basic cost. We are very happy to discuss any ideas you have.
Square cakes and fruit cakes are also available, and are slightly more expensive than the lists below, please note our fruit bakes are made with brandy, we can leave this out if you prefer.
