There is always an occasion for cake. Whether it is a Wedding cake, a Celebration Cake or just time for cake. I tailor every design. You can view some examples of my work in my cake galleries. All of my cakes are freshly made to order.

“I believe that every cake should be unique, a real showstopper that tastes as good as it looks”

CELEBRATION CAKES

Whether you’re having a small family celebration, a birthday, an anniversary or perhaps a christening, I believe that your celebration cake should be completely bespoke and tell a story of the special day or person.

Each cake starts with an idea and it’s great to look online for inspiration. However, I will never copy another design. I will instead take into account the elements that you like from photos, favourite colours, hobbies and loves to create something completely unique, adding as much personal details wherever possible.

Your cake design can be as elaborate and personal as our imagination and your budget. Please have a budget in mind. I have a set price for everything so it means I can design within that amount.

As a guide, my celebration cakes start from £140. This will feed around 20 people, topped with a simple caricature and decoration with personalised colours and a message.

WEDDING CAKES

Ordering a wedding cake can be extremely daunting. In order to take that feeling away from you, I advise coming along for a consultation. That way I can guide you through the process. It gives you a chance to sample the quality of my cakes, discuss your wedding, any ideas you have and to see what designs are possible.

It’s a good idea to have a budget in mind as it really helps when we are designing together.

As a guide, my wedding cakes start from £550. This price is estimated based on my most popular design. A 3-tier cake feeding 55-100 guests, simple flowers topped with a bride and groom topper.

  6. I’m happy to send pictures while I am designing and at the end, however I can’t guarantee a completed finished photo as some cakes have to be set up on the day, at the venue to ensure their safety.

Celebration Cakes:

I currently do not provide consultations for celebration cakes. The designing will be done over the phone or through email. Once I have all of the information, I can create a very simple sketch with descriptions and a breakdown price. There is no fee for this design process, all I ask is that you provide me with a maximum budget so I can design to stay within it. This helps to save time and disappointment.

  1. Send an email with as much detail as possible
  2. Agree on a design and price
  3. 50% non-refundable deposit will be taken to secure your date and for materials
  4. The remaining 50% is to be taken 2 weeks before the date of your cake, unless pre-arranged cash at the time of pick up.

All celebration cakes must be picked up at Tasteful Cakes. Delivery can be arranged for local delivery and a price will be agreed at the time of ordering.
