Cake Order FAQ’s

We are based in Stilton, just outside of Peterborough north of Cambridge, UK, PE73RP

Our beautiful cakes are hand-crafted. Many cakes, especially wedding cakes, are booked well in advance.  Please give us as much notice as you can as we are usually booked up to 4 months in advance (Longer for Wedding cakes).

Yes we do

We make prestigious and delicious hand-crafted cakes, which by their very nature are delicate and need to be handled with the utmost care. All our cakes are packed carefully for transportation, you are welcome to collect from our studio in Stilton (Peterborough, Cambridge, Lincolnshire, Bedfordshire and Northampton).

We offer a delivery for a fee within a 60-mile radius of our studio in Stilton. Our cakes are packed securely for transportation, so we can guarantee your cake arrives safely. We do travel further afield, for our Wedding and more extravagant bespoke cakes, so please contact us so we can calculate the delivery charge for you.

Because our cakes are too fragile we do not offer a courier service.

No problem! Contact us via our contact form  and we will be delighted to provide a quote for a bespoke creation. All of our cakes are made to order and it is almost certain that no two cakes are the same, for example…the message, colour scheme and decoration are unique to you. If you have a picture or sketch of the cake you would like, you can email it to us at [email protected]

For freshness, our sponge and carrot cakes should be eaten within 6-7 days, if they are stored at room temperature, away from direct sunlight and heat. Once cut the cake should be kept in an airtight container to retain the freshness. Our fruit cakes should last at least three months. Do not put any of our cakes in the fridge, as this will affect the quality. It is possible to freeze leftover cake, wrapped in clingfilm.  

What about allergy information?

All our cakes are baked and decorated in an environment where nuts are present, especially marzipan. Unless specified cakes may contain NUTS, MILK, EGGS, WHEAT, SOYA, GLUTEN, LUPIN, SESAME SEEDS & SULPHUR DIOXIDE.

Please contact us if you have any allergy concerns

All visits are by appointment only, please use the contact form or telephone us 01733 242392 to arrange an appointment.
