As you can see from the examples, the difference in prices is due mainly to the quantity and detail of the decorations in the design, as well as the size of the cake. Some decorations are much more time consuming to make than others, which makes them more expensive, for example figures (particularly the more complex ones).

The examples in this celebration and corporate cakes price guide are just to give you an idea of what to expect, as all cakes will be priced up individually.

Answers to more FAQ’s below:

How do I order my cake?
To order your cake, please get in touch, with details of your requirements (date, no of servings/size, theme etc) in order for me to give you a quote.

Once your design has been finalised, I ask for a £30 deposit to confirm the order and reserve your date.

When do I order my cake?

This is a tricky one!

My availability depends on bookings already in the diary, but as a general rule, I would need at least 4 weeks notice (to allow time for ordering in any specific items if necessary).

I would advise booking as early as possible, to avoid disappointment, as some dates are more popular than others. Although I will try to accommodate you where possible, since I work on all aspects of your cake, from start to finish, I can only take a certain amount of orders per week.

Having said that – if you are looking for a cake with short notice – it is always worth asking, as I may have availability left to fit you in!

Summer Saturdays are traditionally the ones that fill up soonest!

Larger celebration cakes and corporate cakes can be delivered on request, for a small delivery charge, depending on distance to venue.

If you would like to arrange delivery for your cake, please let me know when ordering.

2 tier cake with dress topper

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for my wonderful celebration cake. It was perfectly executed to my design, full marks to you. The skill and precision was faultless. More importantly the cake was delicious and well received by the guests. I was rather reluctant to put a knife into the icing!

Carved Digger Cake

A perfect cake for a perfect 3 year old. Not only did the cake look amazing but tasted delicious too. The cake really made Rowan’s day truly amazing, he was especially pleased about the edible mud!

Disco Themed Party cake

What an amazing disco themed cake for my daughters’ 14 and 12 birthdays. Not only the cake looked out of this world, it tasted divine! It was a perfect showstopper for a lovely disco party.

Thank you Julie.

Static Caravan Cake

Julie did an amazing job for my parents 80th birthday cake. It was a static caravan the attention to detail was amazing right down to the figures looking out of the windows and the tubs of flowers around the outside. I would highly recommend Julie . I will definitely have her make any future cakes.
