Where Are You Based?
I work from home in my tiddly studio extension in North Belfast. I work around home and family life, so arrangements to call are by appointment only. That way you don’t arrive in on what sometimes feels like feeding time at the zoo ”)
What price are your cakes?
All my cakes are made fresh from scratch using best quality ingredients and are priced according to size, design and detail. A guide to pricing can be found here. And if you want a more detailed quote for a design, simply get in touch.
How much cake do I order?
Serving guides can be found here. Typically, people order slightly less portions than expected guests to cover no shows, people on diets or with dietary requirements. You may have a kitchen cake offered as part of a venue package but still want a decorated cake for 'cutting the cake' pictures, I can make this so it will look the part.
How much notice is required?
A good rule of thumb is to check if your date is available as soon as you have it to avoid disappointment. I only take a few commissions and some people wish to book up to 16 months in advance, if only I were that organised in my real life, lol. I sometimes have last minute availability so It’s best to get in touch to check availability.
What about Delivery and set up?
For wedding cakes and tiered cakes, it is recommended!! Delivery costs are £1 per mile from BT14 as found on google maps. The total cost will vary depending on design of the cake to account for set up time and addition of any delicate embellishments or fresh flowers.
How do I Book?
If your date is available, then a ‘save the date’ deposit of £75 is required to secure your booking. This can be paid via cash or bank transfer. Once deposit is received, your cake is booked!
Once I have booked my cake with you, what happens?
Now the fun begins, we will embark on a design journey together! Your homework will be to find images you love and inspiration in everything – colour charts, jewellery pieces, dresses, floral arrangements. Any elements that will already be present for your event; invitations, centrepieces, buttonholes, the list is endless!! I often advise brides to create a Pinterest board where you can save pictures of things and styles you like. Pinterest has a vast catalogue of quality images and styled shoots that will provide endless inspiration, but a word of caution, you can lose hours of your life here!! Check out some of my existing boards here.
Final design is normally about 4 months before your big day. This is because much of the other design pieces will be booked and in place, that way your cake will fit in beautifully giving a flawless cohesive look.
Where can I see more of your work?
I have a facebook page where all my past cake pictures are and I update with my most recent work. I also have an Instagram feed where I post pictures of cakes, design, crafting and all things that make me smile <3 Feel free to follow and like my page “)
I have more questions.
No worries, get in touch and I’ll be more than happy to answer them!
