Wedding / Celebration Cake Options
Most of our cakes are designed and made to customers' individual requirements. In the galleries you can see a selection of our previous work to get an idea of the possibilities. We are happy to create anything from a cute and fun sponge cake for a child's birthday to a dream wedding cake with several tiers. If you require something unusual or different please feel free to ask as we do enjoy a challenge! If you have seen a cake elsewhere, on the internet or maybe in a magazine that you like, then we would be happy to recreate it and tailor it to make it personal to you.
How do we personalise cakes? Well some people have a particular hobby or interest that they would like included on their cake. Some people want a photo on their cake. For some customers it is the colour that is particularly important and flowers and other decorations can be matched up to your colour theme. Please ask if you have any express requirements and we will always do our best to oblige.
We bake all our cakes from scratch using good quality ingredients. We do not use cake mixes or buy cakes in from another supplier as some cake decorators do! Because all of our cakes are baked to order, we do not need to over–sweeten them in order to increase the shelf life as is the case with most mass produced cakes. Our cakes therefore taste like traditional home baked cakes.
We are also able to offer wheat free, gluten free, dairy free, and egg free cakes as required.
Rich fruit cake
Made with good quality ingredients including free range eggs and muscovado sugar. The fruit is first soaked in brandy and the baked cake is then matured to produce a moist cake with an excellent flavour. The cake is covered with marzipan and sugarpaste or royal icing and decorated to your requirements.
I have lost count of the number of times my customers have told me that they do not normally like rich fruit cake, but they enjoyed eating mine!
I normally require a minimum of 4 weeks' notice for a rich fruit cake as I bake to order and the cake needs time to mature. However, I can sometimes work to tighter timescales so please do ask as I will always do my best to help. Click here or use the telephone number (above) to place an order.
Light fruit cake
If you are adamant that rich fruit cake is not to your liking, then this is a good alternative. Again, I use only good quality ingredients including rum soaked dried apricots, sultanas, brazil nuts, pineapple and ginger. This cake has a delicious flavour but is not dark in colour like a rich fruit cake. This cake would normally be covered with marzipan and sugarpaste. Seems to be poplular with men!
A minimum of two weeks notice is required for a light fruit cake. Click here or use the telephone number (above) to place an order.
A moist vanilla flavoured sponge cake with a seedless raspberry jam and vanilla buttercream filling, or a delicious chocolate sponge with a chocolate buttercream filling. Sponge cakes are normally covered with sugarpaste and your choice of decoration. These cakes taste nothing like the mass produced cakes found on the shelves of most major supermarkets.
I would normally require at least one weeks notice for a sponge cake, but ordering earlier would be preferred particularly during busy times. Click here or use the telephone number (above) to place an order.
