What wedding cake flavours are available?

Our couples love our vanilla and blackcurrant jam twist, and our lemon sponge with with lemon curd filling… but the options are endless! Contact Hannah to find out more.
When is the best time to book a personal one-to-one consultation?
Whenever you are ready! We usually see couples 18 to 6 months ahead of the big day, but subject to availability, we can see you at any point during the planning process.
I have a specific colour scheme – are you able to match it?
Yes! All of our cakes can be fully tailored to match your colour theme and styling – we love it when our couples have a clear vision for their big day. If you have a specific colour scheme, theme or look in mind, please bring details along to your personal one-to-one cake consultation. You will find previous examples in our inspiration gallery on on our Pinterest boards.
Do you deliver the wedding cake?
Yes. All quotations outline a delivery fee, which includes delivery to your venue and the set up of your cake, leaving you free to focus on other details ahead of your big day. Please note: Delivery costs are based on mileage. Local pick up from my home studio in Cheltenham can be organised for smaller cakes, please contact me for further delivery information.
