Design/Style/Theme of your Cake

We can work with you to design something new or if you like you can supply us with a photo of a cake design/style/theme that you really like and we will do our best to replicate it. 

Please keep in mind that although we try to decorate it as close as possible to the original design, the cake will not look exactly like the cake in the photo. 

Any changes requested to the size, style or flavours of the cake must be submitted in writing at least 28 days prior to your event.


Consultations & Cake Tastings

Consultations are by appointment only.  

Cake tasting samples will be provided at the consultation.

There is a $50 charge for this, which is deducted from your cake price should you book with us.



As part of our service we can offer personal delivery and set-up of your cake/cupcakes.


We will aim to deliver your cake the day of your event to maintain freshness.


We will contact your venue to schedule a delivery time and to check that all arrangements for assembly such as the cake stand/table have been taken care of.
