I want a cake! How much is it?

Due to the nature of bespoke cake making we have no 'set' price. Your total cost will be based firstly on the complexity of your cake, the number of portions, what type of cake then finally, and to a much smaller amount, the flavours.
If you have a budget in mind then we will work with you to achieve the best result for you.
A starting budget is £50 for a well decorated 10" square sponge cake. Go Back
