When to book your cake baker?
May to September: ideally 12 months in advance.
October to March: ideally 6 months in advance.
 
Rich Fruit cakes should be baked no less than 4 months prior to your wedding day to ensure they have time to mature slowly and be fed regularly.
 
So don't worry if your wedding day is sooner than guidelines above, get in touch and we'll do our best to help out. We limit the number of wedding cakes we take on to ensure that we deliver you the best service and products possible.
 
 
All our cakes are freshly baked for your wedding.
