I will always do my very best to accommodate requests with short lead times but ask for at least 3 months notice for Wedding orders and at least 4 weeks notice for other orders. Dates are often booked well in advance of the event so do get in touch as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

I promise you a passionate, creative service and a cake design that is unique to you! I personally design, bake, create, decorate and deliver every single cake that leaves the Boutique (it's just me, no team of cake angels in the background!) and therefore have a limited number of bookings available throughout the year. Early enquiries are definitely advisable.
All prices shown are valid until 31st December 2018.

This is a rough guide for wedding cakes based on 1inch slices per person. Your venue catering manager will be able to ensure portions are cut to the correct size.
|4||10 portions||15 portions|
So, a 2 tiered round cake for example comprising of an 8 & a 10 inch tier, would cater for approx 100 people.
*Based on standard 4 inch deep tiers.
Flavours & Fillings
If you have a particular cake flavour & filling combination in mind just let me know. Here are some client favourites and my most popular:
- Classic Vanilla Bean - Light vanilla sponge with a vanilla bean buttercream frosting
- Fresh Raspberry - Raspberry infused fluffy sponge with a delicate raspberry buttercream or cream cheese frosting
- Squidgy Chocolate - Moist chocolate sponge with creamy chocolate buttercream frosting or chocolate ganache filling
- Red Velvet - A mix of chocolate & vanilla give this sponge a mild flavour. A vanilla bean frosting adds a sweet touch of indulgence (cream cheese frosting also works well)
- Lemon Curd - Luscious lemon sponge with a juicy lemon curd buttercream frosting
- Rich Fruitcake - A deliciously moist fruitcake made with juicy plump vine fruits & infused with cherry brandy
- Coconut Cloud - A delicate coconut sponge infused with Malibu & with a lime buttercream frosting
*please get in touch to discuss delicious gluten free options. Unfortunately I am unable to cater for those with nut allergies.
Consultations - Weddings
This is an exciting part of the process where we talk about all things wedding over a cup of tea and of course with cake! Don't forget to let me know which 3 flavours you would like to try!
Details of your dress, your flowers, colour scheme & venue will help me design the perfect cake for your special day. It's a good idea bring along pictures from magazines, pinterest, etc for visual confirmation of what you like.
Following the consultation, if you decide you would like to book, a deposit is required to secure the date in the diary (see above for deposit details). A bespoke design sketch will then be sent to you for your approval.
All my creations are made to order with the freshest ingredients – local and organic if possible . My kitchen is not nut free kitchen but if you have any special dietary requirements, I would be happy to try and accommodate if I can.
Please note, there is a small non-refundable charge of £15 for wedding consultations*, payable in advance. This amount will be deducted from your overall wedding cake cost. Full taste testing consultations are available for all other orders at a cost of £30. If you are unable to make a consultation in person, I also offer a Cake Mail service for the same price of £15. Get in touch for more details.
*You will be able to try 3 flavours of your choice. Additional taster samples after the consultations are chargeable & will be posted.
You can pay for your wedding consultation here.
I recommend leaving the delivery and set up of your wedding cake to me. This will give you one less thing to worry about so you can concentrate on enjoying getting ready on your very special day.
You are of course welcome to collect your boxed cake but please note that once the cake has left the boutique, we cannot be held responsible for any damages that may occur.
Local delivery (i.e. Braintree and surrounding area) is free of charge. Please get in touch for a quote for delivery to other areas.
*there will be an additional £20 charge for bank holiday deliveries. Celebration cakes are on a collection only basis from the Boutique.
Cake Stand Hire
If you need a stand for your display, I can help! I have a selection of beautiful stands which may be hired. A security deposit of £50 per stand will be required which will be refunded upon return of the undamaged stand. Other items can also be hired upon request (display plates, trays...).
I ask that stands are returned within 5 days of the event to ensure you receive your deposit (unless agreed otherwise at the time of hire). Please get in touch for pictures and prices.
