Ordering info and other FAQs

Each cake is as individual as your special occasion, so for that reason it is not possible to give prices on the website. We are more than happy to discuss your requirements and offer a no obligation costing.

 

Here are some of our clients' FAQs:-

How far ahead do we need to order our cake?

Celebration cakes, cupcakes and cookies can be ordered with a few weeks notice although a month would be the ideal and I will always try to accommodate short notice requests. Wedding cakes can be booked a year in advance although most bookings are taken between 6 and 9 months in advance. It is best to book early to avoid disappointment as depending on the complexity of the cake I may only be able to make one wedding cake on the date you want, so if someone else has already booked then I will have to let you down.

 

How much will my cake cost?

Each cake is priced individually depending on size, wether fruit or sponge and what decorations you choose. If you scroll through the galleries then these will give you an idea of the average cost of a cake. However I have made cakes for all budgets.

 

How do I pay for my cakes?

Celebration cakes, cupcakes and cookies need to be paid for on delivery. A non-refundable deposit of 20% will be charged for wedding cakes with the total to be paid 7 working days before delivery.

 

 



What flavours of cake do you make?

As well as popular flavours like vanilla, chocolate and lemon most other flavours can also be accommodated. We have made a variety of other flavours such as chocolate and orange, mocha, coconut and lime, the increasingly popular red velvet and of course traditional fruit cakes.

If you don't see what you want please ask – all flavours so far requested have been made successfully!

Can I mix the tiers?

Yes, we are happy to make each tier a different flavour.

 

How do you design my cake?

Most cakes can have the design finalised via phone or email but wedding cakes will always need at least one personal free of charge consultation. If you have some ideas of how you want your design to look then it's a good idea to build up a scrapbook. You can fill it with anything that helps including pictures, colour swatches, fabrics etc.

 

Do you bake all the cakes?

Yes all cakes are mixed and baked and decorated at CrimsonCandy. Good quality ingredients are always used and can be Fairtrade and organic. I use my own hen's eggs wherever possible.

 

CrimsonCandy CakeWill you deliver my cake?
