Frequently Asked Questions

Of course, designing a wedding cake is a unique experience, and something we know is not an everyday occurrence. Over the years we have created a way of working that ensures our couples have a relaxed, fun and special wedding cake journey. We have created a complete service that will take care of everything to do with our couples wedding cake. We call this our Couture Service. 

The Couture Service includes the designing and creating of your beautiful bespoke wedding cake and/or dessert table, a medium size Cake Tasting Box (sent direct to your home), design consultation calls, and catch consultation calls, hand delivery to your venue, and expert cake set up by our Cake Stylists, cake stand hire and collection, liaising with your wedding planner, your venue, your florist, and extended wedding team (if needed).

The couture service can also include wedding favours, guest bedroom gifts, extra postal tasting gifts, first year anniversary cake, birthday cakes/cupcakes for your guests, grooms cake, sourcing cake display props, site visits to your venue, as well as an in person Tasting & Design Consultation for two in our Cheltenham cake studio or at your venue/location.

Of course! We would be delighted to talk to you first. We host cake consultations via telephone or zoom, as well as private in person consultations. We’ll guide you through your wedding cake / dessert table options such as size, shape, flavour, number of portions, decoration and level of detail.

Absolutely, you are welcome to order a delicious Tasting Box prior to booking from our website shop here.

These lovely Tasting Boxes can be posted to your home address or collected direct from our Cheltenham Studio.

This is completely your choice, though I would say most of our couple cater for the exact number of guests.

However, over the years we have had couples over cater, as they love the thought of having left over wedding cake for next day celebrations, or to send to loved ones, or just to nibble on after the wedding (wedding cakes can easily be frozen).

Alternatively, some of couples under cater as they don’t want to have any cake left over at all.

Our Couture Wedding Cake service includes delivery and set up at your venue so that you do not have to worry about a thing.

We are happy to travel locally, around the Cotswolds. As well as throughout the UK and abroad.

We have a number of beautiful cake stands available for hire and for sale.

If you require a single cake stand hire & collection, your venue must be within 10 miles of our studio.

For multi cake stand hire & collection, your venue must be within 20 miles of our studio.

Alternatively, you are welcome to buy a gorgeous cake stand from us.

It is very difficult to offer a price list per se, until we able to discuss what you are looking for via an initial consultation call. Each of our beautiful cakes and dessert tables have so many variables bespoke to each couple.

When pricing our cakes, we take into account the number of servings, the complexity of design and style elements, and level of service a couple choose. 

Sometimes a highly decorated smaller cake may take longer to create than a larger one, and therefore, will be a higher price. 

We bake a number of different sized cakes and we will always try to present a few possible variations for you to choose from. 

However, as guide our wonderful wedding cake prices tend to range between £5.00 - £45.00 per portion. With this in mind, on average our lovely couples tend to invest between £800 - £1,750+ for their bespoke wedding cake. Please read our blog on “How Much Should I Invest In A Wedding Cake” to learn more.
