Send us an image
You can now attach an image, drawing, photo or picture of a design you have in mind that you would like made as a cake, using our contact page. We′ll take a look at your image and get back to you between Monday and Friday by return mail or by phone advising as to whether this is possible and giving an idea of price. You′ll need to let us know how many people your cake will need to feed, not forgetting to leave us your delivery postcode so we can check that we would be able to deliver to your area.
Please be aware when sending us an image of a cake you have seen elsewhere, that due to copyright and professional courtesy, we will not make an exact copy of the image sent. As such we need to manage our customer′s expectations and make you aware that there will usually be a few design differences between that of the image sent and the cake made to order.
Cake Order Confirmation
When you have placed your order either online or by phone, we will send you an e-mail confirming the details of your cake order. Please ensure you read the details carefully and advise us of any discrepancies by midday on the Wednesday before your Friday delivery. We regret that we are unable to make any changes to your cake after this time. (Cake Order Detail Confirmation mails are sent manually Monday to Friday so please don′t worry if you do not receive your mail straight away).

Simply order online and tell us in the message box at checkout that it′s a gift and if it′s a surprise. Be sure to add the recipients name and phone number - we will text or call them the day before delivery advising we have a fresh produce gift to deliver, also advising their expected delivery time. All cake deliveries are made on a Friday. Please advise the recipient in advance that we will be contacting them on the Thursday and that they will need to be available to receive their gift on your chosen Friday delivery date.
Add your cake message at checkout, but keep it reasonably short to ensure it fits on the cake.

About our beautiful cakes
All our cakes are freshly hand made to order and really do taste as good as they look!

If you would prefer a choice of fruit cake or carrot cake please call to order as there will be an additional charge based on the size of your cake. Please allow 1 weeks notice for fruit or carrot cake.
We can usually take orders up to 11a.m on a Wednesday for a Friday delivery (though on occasions these times may change without notice so please order early to avoid disappointment).
Our cakes are made by a very experienced team of decorators who each have their own style and "signature" so cakes may vary slightly from the image shown online but will always be made and decorated to the same high standards our returning customers have come to expect from us over the years.
Gluten Free Cakes
Any of our cakes can be made gluten free. Please advise us using the information box at checkout or call to order. We can take orders up to 11a.m on Wednesdays for Friday delivery.
Please call to order as larger and more intricate eggless cakes may not be suitable for transportation. Please allow 2 weeks when ordering. Please be aware that eggless cakes have a more crumbly, dryer and aerated texture than a traditional sponge cake.
Dairy free cakes.
Our dairy free cakes are made with eggs. Please allow 1 weeks notice when ordering.
Fruit Cakes (with marzipan so therefore contains nuts)
Made with sultanas, currants, glace cherries, flour, black treacle, eggs, brown sugar, vegetable margarine, mixed spice, brandy and lots and lots of love. Topped with a layer of marzipan and a layer of fondant icing. You will need to allow at least 1 week when ordering. Please call to order or to enquire about our fruit cake prices.
None of our sponge cakes are made with nuts however some maybe decorated with chocolates that do contain nuts. Fruit cakes are topped with a layer of marzipan which is made with nuts. All our cakes are made in an area where nuts are present so please be aware that even where nuts are not used we can not guarantee nut free.
We regret that at this time we are unable to offer Halal cakes.
For maximum freshness our sumptuous vanilla sponge cupcakes should be consumed on the weekend following your Friday delivery. Please bare this in mind when ordering as they do not stay fresh for very long. Please do not order cupcakes if required for after the weekend period.
Should you ONLY WISH TO ORDER CUPCAKES there is a minimum order of 3 dozen when ordering. Alternatively you can order a minimum of just half a dozen cupcakes when ordering with any of our cakes. Delivery is free and cupcakes are delivered Fridays.
To be sure that you get the shoe design you are looking for, please allow 3 weeks notice when ordering as these are professionally crafted by hand and take some considerable time to make dry and set.
In the case where a shoe cake has been ordered with less than 3 weeks notice, (including one from our website) and this shoe is not available, we will automatically replace with a shoe of similar design.
Please use the contact us page attaching your image and specifying weather you would like an 8, 10 or 12 inch cake. Most pictures are square or rectangular but we would adapt the shape of the cake to fit your picture. Please send the biggest image you can as clarity and sharpness can often be lost especially when enlarging small images.
Please allow 2 weeks notice when ordering a picture cake.
Double depth cakes and one and a half depth cakes can be made to order. Please call for prices.
Each cake is hand made and sculpted to create your chosen design. Cakes start out as square but are cut and crafted to create your design so some cake is lost in this process. As such portion guides are documented alongside each of our cakes and these are based roughly on a 1 x 2.5 inch (2.5cm x 6.5cm) slice.
Square and round cake size and approximate portions
Please note that square round and heart shaped cakes are approximately 3.5 inches deep (9cm).
Storing your Cake
All cakes are made over a period of 2-3 days prior to our Friday deliveries so are perfect for parties over the weekend period or Monday to Wednesday of the following week.
Please store your cake in a cool dry place but NOT in the fridge.
So that you experience your sponge cake at its best we strongly recommend you consume your cake within 5 days of delivery and within 48 hours of cutting it. If your cake is not needed until the Tuesday then consume within 24 hours after cutting. Cakes not needed until the Wednesday should be cut and consumed on the same day. It is very important that our customers have the freshest product possible and we pride ourselves on our customer reputation and satisfaction. Please note therefore that we will never knowingly sell a cake that is intended to be consumed more than 5 days after delivery.
Follow the easy Step-by-step guide below and see our Face Painting Tips at the bottom of the page. Click on each image to enlarge and print the page if required.
Build up Snazaroo Ochre Yellow into a damp high density sponge.
Cover the whole face and blend the colour to avoid streaks.
Load a damp sponge with Snazaroo Bright Red and sponge the forehead area above the eyebrow level to create a bandana.
Using a medium multi-purpose brush finish the edges of the bandana and create a knot effect at the end as shown.
With a fine flat brush, build up Snazaroo Black up to the edge and then outline the bandana.
Dip a stipple sponge into the Black and apply a stipple beard by dabbing against the skin. Do not rub.
Use a small triangular sponge (cut a round sponge into quarters) and create the eye patch with Snazaroo Black.
Finish details of the patch with a fine flat brush.
Build up Snazaroo Black on a fine round brush to get a fine point for a Captain Hook type moustache. Start the moustache each side of the mid-lip cleft.
For the final touches use a medium multi purpose brush loaded with Snazaroo White paint to add dots onto the bandana.
Before loading your Face Painting sponge with Snazaroo paint, ensure that the sponge is damp but not wet. Build the Snazaroo colour into the sponge to create a rich creamy texture. Never over wet the sponge or you will find you get a streaky uneven finish.
When using a thin fine line brush for detail, always build the colour into the brush and upto the tip. This is especially true when applying Black lines and detail to your design.
Cut a round face sponge into quarters to create smaller patterns such as spots and triangles.
If you are going to try and replicate this design for a number of children and want them all to be as similar as possible, enlist some help and asign each volunteer one face painting stage. Have the children move down the "production line" in turn and voila! - cloned faces for your party or production. This is a great idea for school events, carnivals and large parties.
