When should I book my wedding cake?
We generally advise booking your wedding cake at least 6 months prior to your wedding. Due to the bespoke nature of our cakes they require detailed planning and we like to leave enough time for consultations with the couple as well as sourcing of necessary materials and all other preliminary preparations which will be required . Furthermore as we aim to deliver our upmost best we will only take on a select number of bookings in any period in order to not compromise on the Cake Jems standard. So once you have a confirmed wedding date and venue you’re in a good position to get in touch. If your wedding is less than 6 months away, do still contact us as we may be able to assist you around our availability.
How much do you charge for a wedding cake?
Each cake creation is custom made for the couple. This means prices will vary according to the level of detail involved in creating the bespoke design as well as the size and quantity of cake required. The cake creation process is a lengthy one, from researching ideas, sketching options, sourcing materials, baking, decorating and delivering the cake to the wedding venue our prices reflect this. We feel the couple shouldn’t have to compromise significantly on their cake design so we will work with you around your budget to select the best option for your day.
I’ve seen a design I like, are you able to re-create it?
Just like you, we are inspired by many of our cake design colleagues however we will always adapt our designs to draw upon our style whilst meeting your needs. We are happy to incorporate your design ideas and preferences into a unique custom creation which is perfect for your day.
Can I arrange collection of my wedding cake?
All of our cakes are prepared with presentation in mind and due to the fragile nature in handling cakes we need to ensure our wedding cakes are delivered and set-up with minimal risk of accidents. We therefore prefer that all wedding cakes are delivered by a member of the team for care and quality assurance purposes.
Do you offer cake consultations?
Beyond delivering a beautiful bespoke spoke cake, we enjoy consulting with our couples around their ideas and inspirations for their wedding cake. This is a pivotal part of the process and gives both of us the opportunity to create a cake which reflects your vision. During the consultation we will go through the wedding theme, colour schemes, cake budget, guest numbers and all the tasty details such as cake flavours and fillings. Arrangements for consultations can be made via the contact form.
What flavours do you provide?
We supply a range of cake flavours and fillings and some of our firm favourites include our classic vanilla sponge, zesty lemon, red velvet and our triple chocolate delight.
Do you supply cakes for other celebrations?
Although our love for wedding cakes knows no bounds we do believe that cakes should accompany all special celebrations including birthdays, bridal showers, baby showers and engagements. Our celebration cakes start from £200 and enquiries can be made by completing our contact form.
