Celebration Cakes

There's nothing we like more than the opportunity to make a bespoke cake for an extraordinary occasion.  Whether you have something particular in mind or you would like some suggestions, Cracking Cakes will make sure your event is made even more dazzling.  Take a look at the gallery at some of our previous creations.

Whilst cake coverings are important, after all, that's what makes it look so magnificent, the actual cake is equally important. Well, who wants a cake that looks cool but tastes yukky? Not me. But not everyone likes the same things, so you can choose from lots of different flavours of cake, filling and topping. Sponge flavours include vanilla, lemon, orange, chocolate, carrot and chocolate marble. Fillings can be vanilla buttercream (with or without jam), chocolate, lemon or orange. Cakes can be sealed on top with a buttercream crumbcoat or a chocolate ganache covering before the fondant icing decoration is added.

The buttercream icing can be flavoured with chocolate, lemon, orange or vanilla. However, we are experimenting all the time with scrummy new ideas so if your favourite isn't here, just ask and we will see what we can do.

The price of our celebration cakes varies depending on size, ingredients and the amount of detail involved.  An average 8" cake (which will provide approximately 25 portions) is around £50 - something more sculpted will be a wee bit more but we are happy to advise on prices.

 

Cupcakes

We make lots of different types of cupcakes (check out our gallery) from cute frosted ones with a pretty swirl of buttercream to fondant themed ones - there is no limit to our imagination, we're bursting with ideas.  Cupcakes with a fondant icing topping can be sealed with either buttercream or chocolate ganache before the decoration is added - you just tell us what you want and we will design it. The buttercream icing can also be flavoured with chocolate, lemon, orange or vanilla and coloured in a variety of fabulous colours.  All manner of decorations can be added, from butterflies to sugar blooms - the choice is yours.

We are also able to print images, for example photographs or company logos, onto icing and added to the top of a cupcake.

Royal icing is another option, this can be coloured, piped and adorned to suit. 

Price depends on the type of  decoration.   There is a minimum order of 12 cupcakes - the cakes need to all be the same flavour but the topping and decoration can vary. You can even specify the colour of the cake case if you like. 

All cupcake prices are based on a standard sized cupcake.  Should you require mini cupcakes or larger, muffin sized cakes (or a mixture of sizes) that's not a problem.  Simply let us know what you have in mind. 

12 standard size cupcakes start at £24.00.

Prices include local delivery so are ideal as a gift for passing an exam, starting a new job, a new baby or just to say thanks for being you!
