DELIVERY AND COLLECTION
Q - Do you do delivery?
Delivery is available. Slots are limited and price dependant on the distance needed, so get in touch to check prices and availability. Please note cakes cannot be posted. Please see out terms and conditions for more on my delivery policy.
Q- How do I transport a cake that I am collecting?
As you will appreciate that once the cake leaves my kitchen the responsibility then passes to the customer so it is very important to transefer the cake correctly. Please be aware that a flat surface is required to retain the stability of the cake and should be secured where possible to remove the risk of movement in transit.
Passenger seats slope and are not recommended for placing cakes on. A clean footwell or boot is usual a good place. Please ask if you are unsure and we can always check your car when you collect.
All our cakes come in a white cardboard cake box for transporting.
Q -How do I store my cake?
Before cutting - Some cakes can go in the firdge but those with sugare paste (icing) are best left in cool dark place. When taken out the fidge the sugarpast will get wet from condensation and the moisture could damage the decoration on the cake. The cake is completely sealed buy its covering before its cut, so the fridge is not neccesarry and can actually dry the cake out quicker.
After cutting - store the cake in an air tight container. This may moisten up any icing decoration but will keep the cake moist. It is recommended to eat a cake withing 2 days of cutting it.
