Q. How long before the wedding should I book my cake?
A. I limit myself to a few cakes a week, so that I can give each one my full creative and personal attention. Therefore we recommend that as soon as you know your date you should telephone for a consultation. Even if you are not sure on your design you should book your date especially for a Summer wedding as some of our Brides book 18 months to 2 years in advance. However we can sometimes fit in late bookings so please do e-mail or telephone.

Q. Can you deliver my wedding cake to the venue for me?
A. Yes, of course. Let us take the worry out of the delivery of your cake. We will deliver your cake to your reception venue and will set it up [so long as the room and table are ready] We cover all of Yorkshire and can sometimes deliver further distances depending on our work load. [Price on request]

Q. What if I am not local to you and would like to order a cake?
A. We are more than happy for you to collect your cake. Fruit cakes can be collected up to one week before the wedding, cakes with sponge or chocolate tiers a couple of days before the wedding (subject to design). Your cake will be packed in special delivery boxes and we also provide a photograph of the finished cake [where possible] along with assembly instructions for you to give to the venue staff.

Q. Can I book via the internet or telephone?
A. Yes, If you know exactly what you want please telephone, e-mail or complete our on-line enquiry form first to check availability and to ask any questions you might have.

Fillings - jams, home made lemon or orange curd, vanilla, chocolate, coffee and coconut Italian Merinque buttercream or chocolate ganache.

Q. How flexible are colours and flowers? Eg if we like one cake shown on website but would prefer a different colour/ flower is this possible and if so are there any extra costs?
A. All of our cakes can be mixed and matched and can all be adapted to your exact requirements. There is no extra charge for making in a different colour.

Q. What if I have my own idea for a design?
A. That is no problem, we are often supplied with sketches and asked to reproduce them.

Q. I would like to keep the top tier, is this possible?
A. Yes, but we would recommend freezing if you want to keep long term.

Q. Can I eat my sugar flowers?
A. If you are having sugar flowers wired into a spray or bouquet then although made from sugar, they are no longer edible due to wires being inserted into leaves and petals as stems. The flower paste and colours used to make them are edible however the special paste used to make the sugar flowers dries very hard and is not very pleasant to eat. Most brides like to keep their sugar flowers as a memento of their day and we can supply presentation cases for these [prices on request]
