We arrange sampling with all our couples. We can arrange to meet you when and where is convenient to you. On sampling days, we will have our award winning Chocolate Biscuit cakes, Red Velvets, Baileys Cookies and Cream and of famous succulent Lemon Drizzle cake. 

When will the cake be made?

The wedding cake will be made within four days of the wedding to ensure full freshness on the big day itself. Wedding cakes that include a fruit cake will be made four months in advance of the big day. 

This is to allow the fruit cake to mature and age to ensure its wonderful flavour. All couples will receive a photo of the wedding cake 24 hours prior to the wedding to ensure they are 100% satisfied with the final product and if any changes are required they will be done so. 

Do you have a cake portfolio that a potential client can view?
 We have a full cake portfolio for all clients to see. This includes every cake that we have done and reviews from all the clients. 

Our brochure also includes pictures of all our cakes and flavours. Our website and Facebook page are also updated weekly with all the new cakes that are produced. 

What kind of delivery service do you offer?

We offer a full delivery service nationwide. Our cakes are only delivered on the day of the Wedding. Gareth will arrive to the Venue on the day and do the full set up of the cake. 

No hotel member touches the cake bar ourselves. On set up the cake, is photographed and forms are signed by hotel management to ensure the cake is in perfect condition upon arrival.
