Hw do I choose my wedding cake flavours?

To select the best flavour cake for your wedding, please have a look at my unique wedding cake flavour menu and order a tasting box to try them yourself. Wedding consultation couples get one complimentary tasting box sent out to them via a recorded delivery.

Do you make wedding cakes allergen sensitive or speical diets?

We do not offer nut-free cakes

My wedding cakes are made in a kitchen that handles and stores wheat, milk, eggs, and nuts. Although I can remove undesirable ingredients and use appropriate substitutes, I cannot guarantee that our products are entirely free from any of these ingredients, as there is always a chance of cross-contamination.

Please let us know of any dietary requirements you or your guests may have for your big day. Especially food allergens, no matter how obscure you may think they are.

Do you make buttercream cakes?

I specialise in fondant cakes. I only offer buttercream in the winter months.

To be safe, get in touch with me as soon as you have booked your wedding venue.

All orders require a non-refundable booking fee at the time of order to hold a date. Click here to book your wedding cake in

What is the price of a wedding cake in 2024?

The final price of your cake depends on three main factors: size, cost, and time. Size is based on the number of portions and tiers, cost includes ingredients and materials, and more so the time and effort taken in the creative process from enquiry to delivery. This on average can be between 40 to 60 hours

The total cost of your wedding cake will vary based on the level of detail and the use of real or dummy tiers. Opting for polystyrene dummies can enhance the height and splendour of the cake without wasting real cake. Additional intricate decorations like edible metallic leaf or detailed sugar floral cascades will incur extra charges based on complexity.

Our custom-made wedding cakes are priced individually. 

For a moderately decorated three (3) tier wedding cake the average investment is £500 to £800. This cake will serve between 65 to 90 finger slices of cake.

Please see my wedding cake gallery here.

Wedding cake designs and flavour selections must be finalised at least 31) days before the event. Changes after this point cannot be guaranteed. Please see our terms and conditions for more information.

Client Review

Anesha was recommended to us by a friend whom also had a wedding cake made by her.

From start to finish Anesha was helpful, knowledgeable and professional and you can tell she has a lot of experience. Our cake was beautifully made and the fine details were amazing.

We opted to save the sugar flower and Anesha mounted it for us in a bell jar as a keep sake. Thank you again Anesha, hope you got the flowers we sent!
