How much notice do i need to give?

We appreciate as much notice as possible, especially for fruit cakes, as these need to mature to obtain the best taste possible.

A sponge cake requires a  minimum of 1 weeks notice , but we will try to accommodate late orders where possible.

A fruit cake will need a minimum of 6 weeks notice. Again we will try to accommodate late orders, but an additional charge would apply as the fruit cake would need to be obtained from another source.

A wedding cake order requires a minimum of 1 Months notice.

Does my cake need to go in a fridge?

No the ideal condition to keep your cake at its optimum best is at room temperature or slightly cooler, a back room or pantry are perfect. It needs to be kept away from sunlight, radiators and anything that omits heat.

Do not put your cake into a fridge as this will cause condensation which will interfere with the icing and decorations causing it to spoil. Also do not store in an airtight container as this again will spoil the icing.

Once cut keep in the box and wrap with clingfilm to stop it from drying out.
