Just a few things we ought to mention

All our orders are freshly prepared on demand, so to ensure we can give your cake the love and attention it deserves, we require at least a week's notice, often more, for a large cake - cupcakes require at least 48 hours notice.  We are always happy to pencil in a booking months in advance - you can always change your mind, just let us know if you do.  However, if you find yourself in a pickle and have less time, do give us a call or email and we will do our very best to help you out.  Weekends are our busiest times so if you do need a cake delivered on a Friday or Saturday please book as early as possible - we hate saying no.

Cupcake prices start from £24 for 12 (they need to all be the same flavour). Let us know what sort of decoration you have in mind and we will give you a firm price.

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 £45-£50.

If you wish to display your cupcakes in the best possible way we can supply a perspex tiered cake stand.  The stand has seven tiers, but these can be reduced depending on the number of cakes you wish to display (it holds around 120 cakes in total, dependant on size).  Rental of the stand is £10 for three days plus a £25 refundable deposit.  Please call or email for details - check the gallery for photos.  The stand will be delivered with the cakes but you will need to return the stand after the event.

For smaller events we also have a variety of cake stands - modern and vintage.  These is available for £5 for three days plus a £10 refundable deposit.  Check the gallery for photos.  The stands will be delivered with the cakes but you will need to return the stand after the event.

Delivery for all cakes within a five mile radius of central Harpenden is included in the price.  Additional delivery mileage may be charged at 40p per mile for other areas. You may also collect your cakes if you prefer.

For cakes ordered over two weeks in before delivery a 50% non-refundable deposit is required - the balance is payable a week before delivery.  For cakes ordered less than two weeks prior to delivery, full payment is required with order.  We accept cheques, bank transfer or good old fashioned cash.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call or email.

Royal icing contains raw egg white so is not suitable for expectant mothers.

Some of our cakes include nuts.  Whilst other recipes do not include nuts we cannot guarantee that they will be nut-free as they are prepared in an environment where nuts are used.
