  • Allergens

    Most of our baked goods are made the traditional way, with eggs, flour, and milk/butter. For allergen information, please visit here.

  • Lead times

    Most of what we do is made to order, and made by hand and are time intensive. Some custom orders may require special cutters and images to make. As such, we need notice to process orders and organise resources.

    Custom cakes (based on a quoting process) require at least one week’s notice (two weeks in the month prior to Christmas).

    For items listed on the website, the minimum lead time is 3-4 days ahead. However, on busy weeks, we may close the bookings earlier, so we suggest placing orders a week in advance.

    Rush orders (24 hours notice) can be processed for standard cupcakes, please ring or text to place this order.

  • Cake types

    Most cakes listed on this website are of a dense sponge/pound cake (not a mud), with a buttercream icing. Our buttercream icing uses butter and not shortening. We bake our cakes from scratch, using fresh milk and free-range eggs – we do not use cake mixes.

    Some cakes have fondant embellishments or toppers as decorations.

    Fondant custom cakes have a mud cake, which are more dense and rich, and chocolate ganache base.

  • Cake sizes

    Each product lists an approximate number of serves for each. Our cakes use premium ingredients, and generally have a dense crumb. We use a 1 inch x 2 inch cut (3 inches high) as a standard size. To cut a tall cake, you will either need to cut finger slices, or cut a larger serve and half the height.
