How much for this cake???
This is quite often the first question I am asked when someone first contacts me about a prospective order.
In truth, there is never a "one size fits all" answer. There are a whole host of different variables that will affect the end price, ranging from the number you need the cake to feed, the flavour/type of cake, and the amount of decoration required.
As a result, all of my quotes are provided after an initial consultation, either face to face, over the phone, or via email. I will try to establish as much information as I can before providing you with your tailored quote.
However, I appreciate that this can often be frustrating when all you are after is a rough ball-park figure. With this in mind, I have created the following price structure, with the aim of being as transparent as I possibly can. This also helps determine budget when quoting so that I can tailor your quote appropriately.
I pride myself on using premium ingredients for my cakes. However, there are alternative (and cheaper) options, and I want to be able to make these available to you, which will better suit some budgets. Also, not everyone likes rich cakes!
The prices below are based on basic decoration - detailed work is quoted and charged at an hourly rate which would be discussed with you during the consultation.
I can use images supplied by you as inspiration for a design, but in the interest of respecting other cake artist's work, I am unable to create a direct copy. This also means that you are able to have a cake that is as unique as the person that it is for!
