It all starts with a conversation
It’s just not a party without cake!
Some celebrations need a show-stopping cake to go with them so I am thrilled to be able to offer a Bespoke Celebration Cake Service for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Heydays and Holidays.
Get in touch today to tell me all about the party you are planning and I will design the perfect cake to suit it.

Sketching up the ideas
Once we have spoken and I have some idea of the Celebration that you are planning for I will be able to start sketching. Whatever the Birthday boy or girl is into, from Louboutin Heels to Hamburgers I can create it in cake!
After our discussion, I will sketch an idea for your cake and send this over to you along with a quote. This is a consultative process so this is your opportunity to let me know if you would like to make any changes to the design. I am committed to getting the design right.
Once you are happy with the design, a deposit of 50% will be required to secure your booking with the balance due 4 weeks in advance of delivery.
Baking your cake
I am serious about baking. Let’s not forget that this is the most important thing – your cake has to taste good! You can choose any flavour that you like and rest assured in the knowledge that they will be made from the freshest, organic, and cruelty-free ingredients.
My most popular flavours are Chocolate Mud, Lemon Drizzle, Red Velvet, Victoria Sponge, Spiced Carrot,
Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter, Banana, and I make a boozy Fruitcake too!
Any special dietary requirements can be catered for from Gluten Free to Vegan, with Eggless, Nut Free, and Dairy Free cakes no problem either. Just let me know at the outset.
This cake waits for no one
With a simple single-tiered Celebration Cake, you are very welcome to arrange collection from my kitchen in beautiful Bedford.
If your Celebration Cake is a little more elaborate, you may prefer to have it delivered to your venue. I will liaise with your contact to ensure that the cake is where it needs to be when it needs to be there. Cakes are either delivered by me personally or a trusted member of my team to ensure that your cake is assembled as we designed it.
“Thank you so much for the most amazing and beautiful cake I could ever dream of! It’s so perfect and tastes divine!”

frequently asked questions
How much does a bespoke Celebration Cake cost?
This one is hard to answer as each cake is priced according to the time that is required to make it. If you opt for many tiers or a very detailed Novelty Cake, this is going to cost more than a simple design. Please remember that you are employing a human to make your cake and this will cost more than a cake that is baked on an industrial scale. Your cake will taste all the better for this!
Let me know at the outset if you have a budget that we need to keep to so that I can design with this in mind.
As a budgeting guide – a simple Celebration Cake starts at £75,
Novelty Cakes from £150, Tiered Celebration Cakes from £200
This cost includes consultation, design, use of a cake stand and knife (if required)
Cake stands and knives to be returned in the week following the event, loss or damage incurs a £75 fee
Can we have more than one flavour of cake?
You can have as many flavours as you have tiers! Plus, because of the dowelling rods that are used to construct your cake, you do not need to worry about the weight of the cakes – so you do not need to have a fruitcake at the bottom to support the sponge cakes on top. In fact, you do not need to have fruitcake at all if you do not like it.
Where are you based and where will you deliver to?
I am based in beautiful Bedford and regularly deliver all over the country. I try to keep delivery costs as low as possible and can quote accurately for this as soon as I have your venue location. I am very happy for simple and sturdy designs to be collected from me at no cost.
Can you cater to special dietary requirements?
I most certainly can! I can make any of my designs Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free, and/or Vegan. Let me know any allergies at the outset and I will be able to advise you on the best options.
