Does my cake come in a box?

All our cakes are securely packed in an appropriate cake box.

What's the best way for my cake to travel?

The best place is flat in the boot, or in the footwell of a car so that the cake remains at a 90 degree angle. On the seat or on somebody’s lap is not recommended unless this angle can be maintained.

Can you put a picture on my cake?

We can add an image or picture to most cakes, however your picture cannot be above A3 size depending on the size of the cake.

The edible image will be the same quality as the photo we use, so the better quality the picture, the better quality the edible image is on the cake.  We can enlarge, reduce or crop the image and the largest photo we can scan is A4.

Can I have a name on the cake?

All our cakes can include an inscription of your choice. If it cannot be on the cake for any reason we can arrange to place on the board or in a cake topper.

Are decorations/cake toppers included?

At the time of your order finalisation, the necessity of toppers etc will be discussed and priced into the total cost of the cake.
