Booking Fee & Tastings

When you have decided you'd like us to make your cake or dessert table for your wedding, we offer two booking fee options. You can opt to 'save the date' or you can wait for your final quote and tasting. The booking fee to save the date is £100, this includes your tasting and consultation. This does not include postage if you require postal sample boxes. You can then book in your tasting at a later date. This is a good option if your wedding is over a year away, you can choose your flavour and design closer to the time. 

If you would prefer to sample our flavours and have your design created before booking then we offer tastings and consultations as the first step. These are £50 and include an in-person consultation or a video consultation if you can not visit us in person. See our tastings and consultation page for more information. We also offer a samples only option for £20 for collection or delivery nationwide (postage £9.80). This option is for simpler designs that may not require a full consultation or if you would like yo try the flavours without any commitment, a consultation can be added after booking. Following your consultation and design approval you will be sent a full quote. If you decide to book we then require a 25% booking fee to secure your date. Please note, until this is received your date is not secured. The cost of your tasting and consultation goes towards your 25% booking fee. Booking fees are not deposits and non-refundable. Please see our term and conditions for more details.

Delivery & Set-Up

We offer collection for single tiered cakes only. All tiered cakes are only available through delivery as they can be tricky to transport and often involve some decoration at the venue. So trust me you want to leave this to us,  carrying a 10-15Kg wedding cake can be quite nerve-racking especially when it's buttercream.

In the month leading up to your wedding we will contact your wedding venue or planner to arrange delivery and set-up on the day. If you are hiring a cake stand we will bring this with us. If you are using a venue stand or your own this should be in situ, along with any toppers you are supplying (please inform us of this prior to set up as it may effect your design). See below for more information on stands and knife hire.

All cakes are chilled prior to transport for stability, so will arrive still cold, by the time you cut your cake it will have reached room temperature. 

Delivery is charged at £0.50 per mile including the return journey. Delivery outside of Cornwall will be a minimum charge of £100. Please factor this when considering your wedding cake budget, we are based in Falmouth which is in the South West of Cornwall. If your wedding is outside of Cornwall please email before ordering samples. We only deliver a limited number of cakes on a particular date. Due to the delivery times we cannot always accommodate weddings outside of Cornwall particularly in the the summer and on peak dates. We do not deliver further east than Devon at any time due to logistics delivering buttercream cakes and the time involved.

Set-up is charged at £20 plus £10 per additional hours travel. This covers our time at the venue and on the road. Most wedding set-ups in Cornwall take 2-4hrs, so this would cost between £30-£50. 

A wedding delivery and set-up at Carbis Bay for example would cost £25 for delivery and would take approx 3hrs (depending on design). The set-up charge for this would be £40. Delivery & set-up for this would be a total of £65.

Single tier wedding cakes make a great option for elopement cakes or micro weddings. You can mix and match sizes and similar styles for larger weddings with wedding cake trios or incorporate them into a larger dessert table or display if you don't want a tiered wedding cake.

WEDDING PRICE LIST

All of our cakes, whether they are for weddings or celebrations are made up of four layers of sponge cake and filling, making them a minimum of six inches tall, which is double the height of a standard cake, so they go a lot further than other cakes of the same diameter.  

 

All of our wedding cakes are iced in a choice of velvety smooth Italian meringue buttercream or finest organic & fair trade Belgian chocolate ganache. We offer both dairy-free, vegan or egg-free meringue buttercream at an additional cost due to the extra time involved in making it. We do not decorate cakes in fondant icing, royal icing or traditional buttercream. Traditional icing sugar buttercream is not stable enough for stacked wedding cakes, and does not last well in warm weather. 

Many of our cake flavours are a little more unusual and involve us making flavoured butters, adding infusions, making homemade fruit curd and more, and therefore take time to prepare. We make all of our cakes and confections with locally sourced organic, free-range and ethically sourced produce where possible, and we only use sustainable, organic, fair-trade & rainforest alliance chocolate, sugar and other ingredients where possible. 

 

This does add to our costs when making your cake, but we feel that using ethical ingredients is worth a little extra. 

 

Our price list does not include decoration and is based on our classic vanilla sponge. The final cost of your cake will depend on the decoration style you choose, the flavours you opt for and delivery/set-up charges. 

Current price-lists are based on 2022 wedding prices, when enquiring about 2023 weddings and beyond please allow for standard inflation. 

(see our terms and conditions for more information).  

 
Edible Flowers &
Food Safe Flowers

We offer a range of decorations including fresh flowers sourced from our own gardens or grown for us by food-safe/edible organic suppliers here in Cornwall & Devon.

A full flower package of seasonal edible flowers to fully decorate a small 2-3 tier wedding cake costs £100-130. These can be tailored to your colour scheme.

If you'd like fewer blooms on your wedding cake or perhaps fruit or herbs this can be done for £50-80 for a small 2-3 tier cake. These can be added to your cake in posies.

Bespoke floral arrangements that include larger blooms such as roses, peonies, dahlias, etc. can be quoted for on request. These bespoke arrangements do cost more than our seasonal edible flower packages as our growers charge more for these blooms. Depending on the design these may be in the region of £100-200 or more. We can press or dry flowers for your wedding cake also. 

Floral table dressing, arrangements and installations are also available on request if you would like to make your cake table and cake a real show stopper.

 

 

Bespoke Wedding Cakes Cornwall

How Much Cake Do I Need???

 

Once you know how many guests you have, you then need to think about whether you plan to use your cake for your dessert or not? If you do then you will need to go for a larger size, so look at dessert portions on the pricing sections above for the different sizes of cakes. 

If the cake is not to be used for the main dessert then it will be cut into finger portions. These are one inch square slices with four layers of sponge. Or your venue  may opt to cut through each tier between the 2nd and 3rd layer and to give you 2 inch by 1 inch two layer slices. 

Some couples like to keep the top tier for themselves, or opt for a larger cake so that there will be leftovers. cake freezes incredibly well. We can give you advice on freezing your leftovers if you decide you'd like to save some of your cake.

If you have 100 guests then the medium two tier would yield enough finger portions for all your guests, but without leftovers. You could opt for the medium three tier which yields 120 finger portions. You could then have three flavours, and take home what's left. If however you decide you'd like your cake as your main dessert then you would have to go for the large three tier which would yield 190 finger portions or 118 dessert slices.
