THE WEDDING CAKE PROCESS
We love working directly with our clients to create a custom cake that reflects their style, budget, event, and guest list. Each and every cake is completely customised to what your specifications are. From your initial consultation to the first moment when you slice into your beautiful wedding cake, we’re happy to work with you to finalise every last detail.
Please send us an email / message with your event details, flavour options, budget, and design ideas. We will email / message you back to arrange a consultation.
During the consultation we can explore the flavours and finalise a Cake design. Cake sketches can be reviewed and a 50% deposit is required to save the date.
One week prior to your event date, the remaining 50% deposit is required. Based on your venue, we will arrange to drop off your cake at your event and make sure that it is picture perfect.
We charge a delivery fee of approximately £80/hr for wedding/tiered cakes or large orders. This includes set-up and travel time, and varies depending on the location of the venue. We do not offer delivery for small orders at this time.
We do not offer refunds. Please email us if there is a change to your order
Wedding Cakes/Orders: Once the 50% deposit is made, the deposit is non-refundable. If the event is cancelled, the deposit can be turned into a credit for another Baker St custom cake/desserts in the next year following.
Custom cakes and macarons: We require a full week’s notice to cancel any cakes or large macaron orders.
We are aware that life is unpredictable, and in the case of an extenuating circumstance please call us and we will do our best to accommodate!
We typically suggest ordering enough servings for 60-70% of your guests, as not everyone will take a piece of cake.
You can have as many flavours as you have tiers. However, we would recommend you keeping one flavour as guest like to have more than one slice if there is more than one flavour.
Yes, they are! Every cake we do is completely customised. We work with you through emails, consultations, and sketches to help create your vision for your cake and make sure it’s exactly what you want. You can view some of our past work in our Gallery and take ideas from there, or start with your own ideas!
Weddings can be booked up to a year in advance! We usually recommend booking at least 4-6 months before weddings, as the wedding season typically books up very quickly and we can only take so many events each weekend. For custom cakes for special events, 2 months is always a good amount of time, although it you have a last minute request we will definitely try to make it work! For 1-tiered custom cake, 2 weeks is the typical time requirement.
We typically require 2-3 weeks notice to book a simple signature cake. The earlier the better, but we will always try our best to accommodate last minute requests.
Of course. The cake is a very central part to the wedding and it will be great if it is coordinated to the theme of the wedding. Just let us know what flowers you would like or show us a picture and we will do our best to get them for you
We recommend this as all flowers vary in shades If you prefer to have your florist provide us the flowers than please let us know. We are happy to work with your florist.
As you may know the wedding day is a very busy day for everyone. We ask for a deposit for the Cake stands as a way to ensure its return within a week after the wedding. Once returned within a week of the wedding day we will refund all your deposit.
We deliver and set up wedding cakes / tiered cakes or large orders. It is approximately £80/hr. However the price for set up and delivery will very depending on the location of the venue. Please check our delivery policy for more details.
