Wedding Cake Price Guide
& Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my cake cost?

Since each cake is often designed specifically for you, there is no definitive price list, but here I will give you some examples, so you will have a good idea of what to expect, depending on the size and style of cake you choose.

As you can see from the examples, the portion sizes are mostly the same, meaning the difference in prices is due mainly to the quantity and detail of the decorations in the design. Some decorations are much more time consuming to make than others, which makes them more expensive.

If you would like a price for smaller/bigger sized versions of the examples shown in this wedding cakes price guide, I will be more than happy to arrange that for you.

I offer FREE delivery and set up to venues within 5 miles

For example – ALL Beverley venues, Skidby Millhouse, Tickton Grange Hotel.

Venues further afield may incur an additional mileage charge for delivery – please get in touch and I will be happy to price this up for you.

How big should my cake be?

Below are some popular sizes for round tiered cakes, with approximate number of portions, based on a 2 x 1″ serving (mostly used for sponge cakes) and 1 x 1″ sized serving (mostly used for fruit cakes).

Points to consider, when deciding the size of your cake.

Will it be served as the main dessert after the meal?

Will it be cut as part of your evening celebrations?

Not everyone will necessarily want to eat a slice of cake, so you don’t have to cater for every single guest!

What flavours do you offer?

My most popular flavours ordered are below – but I am happy to explore other flavours on request.

My most popular cake flavours

Salted Caramel – caramel flavoured sponge, filled with salted caramel buttercream and sauce

Vanilla – vanilla flavoured sponge, filled with vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam

Chocolate – chocolate flavoured sponge, filled with chocolate buttercream

White chocolate – vanilla flavoured sponge, filled with white chocolate & raspberry buttercream and raspberry jam

All sponge cakes are coated wiht a layer of decadent chcolate ganache (white, milk or dark chocoalte – depending on the flavour of sponge) before covering with sugar paste. This gives a smooth, form surface for decorating with the design of your choice.

Other flavours such as fruit cake, carrot cake red velvet sponge and more are available on request.

Answers to more FAQ’s below:

How do I order my wedding cake?
You can do this in 2 different ways:

Contact me to book a consultation, where we can discuss ideas for your cake and you get to taste some samples.
Or, if you don’t need a face to face consultation – I am just as happy to deal with your enquiry/order via email. Send me details of your date, venue and any theme/ideas and I will send you a quote.

Once your design has been finalised, I ask for a £50 deposit to confirm order and reserve your date.

The balance for the order is due for payment 4 weeks before your wedding date (or you can choose to pay earlier or in instalments if you wish).

When should I order my wedding cake?
Most wedding cakes are booked at least a year in advance of the wedding date.

As I only ask for a small £50 deposit to book your date in my diary, the earlier you book the better, in order to avoid disappointment. I do everything on your cake, from the baking, to the decorating and delivery, so I am limited to how many cakes I can book in.

Having said that, if your wedding is sooner than this, don’t panic – please do check with me, as I may still have your date available.

Summer Saturdays are traditionally the ones that fill up soonest!

How can I make payments?
Payments can be made by:

Bank Transfer
Paypal

Do you deliver the cake?
Yes I deliver and set up your wedding cake at your venue. I will liaise with the venue to arrange a suitable time for delivery.

Delivery to venues within 5 miles of me are delivered FREE (eg ALL venues in Beverley and others just outside, such as Skidby Millhouse and Tickton Grange Hotel).

Delivery to venues outside of this area will be charged an additional small fee to cover mileage etc.

When pricing your cake, I will factor any additional delivery cost into your quote, so there won’t be any surprises along the way.

Can I collect the cake?
Although I usually tend to deliver wedding cakes, we can arrange for you (or someone you trust) to collect from me before the wedding if you prefer.

We will discuss the best ways of transportation and storage.

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.
