FAQ's


How far in advance do I need to order?

The earlier the better. During peak wedding season (October- April) season we start taking wedding cake orders up to a 18 months in advance. So to avoid any disappointment book in early for your chosen date. For celebration cakes, 4 weeks in advance is recommended. Contact us and we may be able to accommodate you in a short time frame.


How big will our cake need to be?

If your cake is going to be used as dessert a 2 inch by 2 inch size is needed and if not, a coffee portion of 1 inch by 1 inch is perfect. as a general rule when needing coffee portions, you don’t need to cater to all your guests. i recommend getting a cake big enough for 80% of your guests as not everyone eats cake.


How much will our cake cost?

All of our cakes are individually designed and made to order. Pricing varies depending upon the style and design you choose. Labour can be from 6 hours through to 30 hours or more for the more elaborate and labour intensive Couture cakes. Contact us for further pricing.


Do you do tastings?

Please  bring any colour samples with you or other design ideas like invites, fabric swatches and floral inspiration as this can help  to come up with a gorgeous design that will compliment you wedding day perfectly.
