Frequently Asked Questions

HOW MUCH DOES A WEDDING CAKE COST?
 
There are many details to consider when pricing a bespoke made wedding cake, the starting point is to know the amount of guests you will have in total for the day and night, this will help to work out the right size to meet your needs.

 

Decorations such as hand made sugar flowers, royal icing pipe work or luxury materials like edible 24ct gold/silver leaf and silk ribbons will be priced accordingly.
 
Please see below guide to show some examples of my wedding cake prices which include royal iced pipework, small sugar flower arrangements, cake stand hire & set up, delivery would be additional.
 
3 tier using a 4”, 6”, 8” combination - £585
4 tier using a 4”, 6”, 8”, 10” combination - £765
5 tier using a 4”, 6”, 8”, 10”, 12” combination - £1,025
 


HOW BIG WILL MY WEDDING CAKE BE?
 
The size will be mainly dictated by the amount of guests you need your cake to feed, I base my suggested sizes on feeding approximately 75%-80% of your guests as it will avoid unnecessary wastage or having to take a whole tier home (unless you

want to of course!). If you have your heart set on a tall cake with many tiers that will provide more cake than you need we

can always use fake tiers to add impact. 
 

All Crumbs To Creations cakes are a generous 5 inches deep as standard, here is a rough size guide

based on 1" x 1" x 5" finger slices


3 tier 4", 6", 8" serves approx 70 finger slices
3 tier 6", 8", 10" serves approx 120 finger slices
4 tier 4", 6", 8", 10" serves approx 130 finger slices
4 tier 6", 8", 10", 12" serves approx 200 finger slices
5 tier 4", 6", 8", 10", 12" serves approx 210 finger slices

 

The options of size combinations are limitless & impact the overall look of your design which can be explored through your consultation.
 


I DON'T KNOW WHAT CAKE DESIGN I WANT 

From the early stages of contacting me I will ask you questions as to the style of wedding you wish for your day, as we work through the consultation phase I will ask for photos of elements such as your wedding dress, bridesmaids dresses, wedding flowers, invitations, Pinterest boards if you have them to get a feel for your day and we will discuss design ideas for your cake.

 

I will then produce sketches of designs that I have created just for you & a mood board to give you a good visual idea of how your cake will look.

HOW CAN I SECURE MY DATE WITH YOU? 

It is important to get in touch once you have secured your venue so that you can check your check my availability, once I have confirmed I'm available you can secure your date with me by reading and agreeing my terms & conditions then reserving

your date in my diary with a non refundable booking fee of £100.
 


CAN I SAMPLE YOUR CAKES?

 

You can reserve your wedding cake sample box before you commit to securing your date with me. These include my 5 most

requested flavours and 2 biscuit favour samples to give you the opportunity to try my baking, taste how I flavour my cakes. I charge £40 for these including special next day guaranteed delivery and I offer these 3 times a year in February, March

and November to work around the busy wedding season.

 

If you love my work & wish to secure your date without trying my samples first these would be sent complimentary. 

 

WILL YOU DELIVER OUR WEDDING CAKE?
 
Yes, it is myself who delivers your cake and sets it up at your venue. I will liaise with your venue leading up to your wedding to discuss delivery schedules so you can focus on getting yourself ready on the day knowing that your cake will be ready for you & your guests to admire.

 

I deliver to many wedding venues across Essex, Cambridge, Hertfordshire & London, the cost for delivery is based on mileage & an estimated time it will take to deliver & set up at your venue.
 


DO YOU HIRE WEDDING CAKE STANDS?
 
It is lovely to hear you are thinking of how to display your cake, I have a couple of options of cake stands that I can hire to my couples, the most popular being the modern white Mosser milk glass stand Pedestal Stand, I also have a thick log slice available that would suit rustic wedding styles.

 

These are £20 to hire with a refundable damage/loss deposit which is returned to you once I have received the cake stand.

 

Alternatively I would recommend talking with a venue stylist such as Victoria at Party-Squared who can really help to create a display to show off your cake (afterall it is likely to have taken a lot of time & expense to make so why hide it away in a corner?!).

 


CAN WE HAVE A DIFFERENT FLAVOUR FOR EACH TIER? 

Yes, absolutely, this is a great way to give your guests a variety of options they will all love!

DO YOU HIRE CAKE CUTTING KNIVES?
 
I do not supply these so I would recommend asking if your venue or caterer can provide one.
 


DO YOU CATER FOR GUESTS WITH ALLERGIES?
 
I make wedding cakes in my domestic kitchen. I cannot guarantee 100% allergen free cakes.
