Here are some of the questions that we are most commonly asked.
'We love your cakes and were wondering where you are?
' We are in Stourbridge, West Midlands. We deliver and set-up your wedding cake to venues FREE OF CHARGE within a 15 mile radius. I also deliver to Birmingham, Through out the Midlands,Leicestershire, Worcestshire, Gloucestershire, London, UK Mainland, Southern Ireland & beyond, please contact us for availability, we try to keep our delivery costs to a minimum rate again please contact us with your venue to get an accurate cost,
'Where are your prices?
' We do not show prices on our website as you will require a cake which is completely unique in size, ingredients and design. We rarely produce the same cake twice. We are very aware that budget is an important consideration for you however. With this in mind we can send you an initial quote based on the following information
; a. The Date of your wedding (enabling us to check availability)
b. The venue town or postcode (to check if free delivery and set-up is available or to calculate the delivery charge)
c. The number of servings you require
d. Any design ideas that you have or pictures you have seen.
Do you do dairy-free, gluten-free or eggless sponges?
Yes we can cater for these requirements. The eggless is a very soft sponge and not suitable for stacked cake designs or carved cakes
Can I choose not to have alcohol in your cakes
Yes we can change our recipe's to your dietary requirements!
Can you recreate a cake from a picture we have seen somewhere else?
Please bear in mind when looking at designs, that we do not copy other cakes. We love creating our own designs after all, we are a Wedding Cake Design business. We can certainly use your pictures as an indication of what you like, but will always advise of ways to make the cake your own and not a copy of somebody else's.
What to bring to the consultation
During our consultation we build on your vision based on the wedding theme, budget, colour schemes, outfits, floral arrangements, how many guests you would like to feed, flavour, fillings, detailing any special requirements,
We encourage clients to bring along anything that might help us guide them towards the perfect choice ,such as a swatch/picture of detail from the wedding dress, a picture of the chosen flowes or colour samples,
Would you be able to help us even if we will not be able to travel to you for a consultation?
Yes of course. We have dealt with brides far and wide, even abroad. We have an excellent communication record so we can scan designs, send photographs of work in progress and keep you informed throughout every stage of creating your wedding cake.
There is a small charge of £10.00 for the consultation,
but if you place your order with us then this will be deducted from the final price. You can taste our cakes without travelling to see us. We can offer this service to customers within the UK ( For Ireland & abroad please discuss with us )
What flavours do you offer?

All our sponges are coated with the appropriate buttercream and then finished with a high quality sugarpaste. This is our current range, but we are open to other requests and have many less conventional recipes in our repertoire. We are always updating our menu so do not be afraid to ask for something different!
What size cake should we have?
Again, this will depend on three things.
1. The number of servings you require
2. If you will be using the cake as a dessert
3. What shape your tiers will be We can advise of this in the initial quote
Can we collect?
Yes collection is available. We can package the cake ready for collection and provide written instructions for you. We cannot be held responsible for any accidental damage after the cake/s have left our premises (please see T&C's)
How does delivery work and can you set the cake up too?
We usually liaise with your venue at the beginning of the wedding week to confirm the best time for us to deliver. We aim to arrive and depart without interruption to the day’s proceedings. We also prefer to set the cake up where it is to be presented so it does not need moving again. This reduces the risk of any damage by third parties.
Do you provide a cake stand and cake knife?
Yes we can provide both. We have a range of stands available to you for hire please contact us for prices. We can also provide a cake knife if needed. Most venues will have some form of stand, but do check on the quality if you can. returnable deposits are required before the loan of any equipment.
When should we order our cake
Once you have chosen your venue and have an idea of your colour scheme, you can arrange your consultation with me, ideally 6 months or more before, this gives me time to source materials if needed for your bespoke cake
If we want to place an order with you, how do we start the process?
We require a £50.00 deposit which secures your date. Even if you are not sure about your final design or flavours, you can still reserve your date and in many cases we would advise this. We can then arrange a consultation nearer to your wedding date.
Deposits are non-refundable.
The remaining balance will be due 1 month before your wedding date at which point, you will be notified
