What about cakes for those with nut or other allergies? Do you offer Gluten free cakes?
Our kitchen does contain nuts and other allergies. If you or any of your guests have a specific dietary requirement, then please get in touch with me before ordering to discuss your requirements. We do offer free from gluten, all our cakes are baked in a kitchen which does contain gluten. We do provide gluten free cakes, but if there are only one or two guests with special dietary requirements I would advise supplementing the main cake with a gluten free mini cake or cupcakes which can be decorated to match the main cake, and if you wish, can be displayed alongside your wedding cake to avoid those guests feeling left out
We can cater for gluten, dairy, and nut free allergy requirements. we have a separate area in our bakery to try an avoid cross contamination but please note we handle all the above in our kitchen.

Absolutely, as part of our service we provide, safe delivery and set up of your cake to your venue on your wedding day at an agreed time. Depending on where the venue is located this will either be included in the cost of your cake or a fee will be charged to cover mileage and time if the venue is further afield.
We will make sure the cake is in a safe position and if we feel it may get damaged we will arrange with the venue a more suitable position, for example if in exposed sunlight and this may compromise the cake.
