How to order your custom cake - 31/01/2024

Welcome back to Mimi's blog. This week I will be talking you through the process of ordering a custom cake from us. I hope you find it helpful

What defines a custom cake?

A custom cake is a uniquely crafted cake tailored to your specific preferences and ideas.They can be created for any occasion, birthday, anniversary, baby shower, the list goes on. Custom cakes can either based on a completely original design idea or draw inspiration from existing designs, allowing for adjustments to suit your envisioned cake.

When ordering a custom cake from us, you have the flexibility to select any flavour from our diverse range for the sponge, the filling and the buttercream. If you want a flavour that isn’t on our menu all you have to do is ask and we will most likely be able to accommodate the request.

Steps to take before ordering a custom cake:

Before reaching out to us with a custom cake enquiry, we recommend exploring our cake menu. This resource provides valuable information on recommended sizes, flavours, extras, and offers a starting price for your desired cake. If you already have a design idea, fantastic! Feel free to seek additional inspiration from cakes with similar themes on social media platforms like Pinterest and Instagram. By sharing pictures of your favourites with your enquiry, we gain a quick understanding of your desired cake style.

Planning ahead:advance notice for your custom cake

Generally, we recommend getting in touch no later than two weeks before you require the cake. However, earlier enquiries are preferred to ensure we have availability for your chosen date. Additionally, as our cakes and some decorations are meticulously handmade, incorporating them into our busy production schedule requires careful planning. The more time we have to design and craft your dream cake, the better the outcome.

Custom cake pricing:

Each custom cake is priced individually based on its design and size. Our custom cake menu offers guide prices to provide an initial cost estimate. Once we finalize the design, we will provide you with a detailed quote. We take pride in offering affordable, handmade cakes and are happy to try and work around your budget.
