Due to the nature of my cakes all designs are bespoke so are inherently hard to price as each individual cake takes time to design and create.
I pride myself on producing high quality cakes at affordable prices.
Most cakes are individually designed and therefore prices will vary according to size of cake and intricacy of design.
Please note that the following guidelines are Starting Prices simple wording, happy birthday etc
|Type of cake||Size||Sponge Cake||Fruit Cake|
Round or Square celebration cake,
Wedding favours (subject to minimum order of 10 items favours )
Based on 10" sponge cake
|"Undecorated" sponge family cakes and cream cheesecakes (made to order)||7"||from £17.00|
|Mini Sponge and Fruit Cakes||£7.50||
Each order is quoted for on an individual basis depending on
- Size of cakes/portions required
- Type of cake (fruit, sponge or carrot cake)
- Style and complexity of decoration
- How the cakes are to be displayed e.g. stand, pillars, stacked etc.
- Cupcake wrappers etc charged as extra at cost price.
As a rough guide my Starting Prices: are as follows:
(please note these are sponge cake prices)
Two tier cakes from £250.00 (based on a ten and eight inch cakes)
Three tier cakes from £250.00 (based on a eight, six & four inch cake)
All stands should be returned to Elmsleigh cakes within 5 working days of the event, collection by us from the venue can be arranged but a further charge will be added for this service.
Failure to return the stand within this time period will result in loss of deposit.
