Q. What flavour cakes do you make?
A. All types of cakes can be made in any flavour you wish, there are many cake flavours to choose from. Here are some examples: Rich Family Recipe Fruit Cake, Delicious Madeira, Almond Morello Cherry, Heavenly Chocolate, Zesty Lemon, Spicy Carrot, Coffee and Walnut. If there is another flavour you would prefer, just ask!
Q. What does a no obligation consultation involve?
A. Consultations are completely free and are held by appointment only in order to give you the full attention you deserve. During the appointment I will collect lots of information about your special event/wedding such as: style of cake, flavours, colours, sponge/fruit, portions needed and date etc. This will allow me to accurately quote you for your cake. I prefer to have a consultation for all types of cake required so I can get a true feeling for the expectations of the client.
Q. When should I order my cake?
A. Ideally, if it is a wedding cake, as soon as you can, giving at least 4 months notice as I purposely limit my workload and can get booked up very quickly. Celebration cakes can be done with less notice as they do not take as much time to complete.
Q. Can I have my cake delivered?
A. You can either collect your cake, or if you wish I can deliver and set up your cake. There may be a delivery charge, but this will depend on the distance from KP Kakes to your event, please contact me for further information.
Q. Do your cakes contain Nuts?
A. I cannot guarantee that all our cakes are nut free. I can exclude nuts from recipes but there may be traces of nuts from other ingredients used in our kitchen.
Q. Should I have a 'cutting cake' in addition to my wedding cake?
A. For extra pieces it can be useful to have a cutting cake. I can provide you with an undecorated cake which will be made exactly the same as your 'real' wedding cake but without the intricate decoration.
Q. Do I have to choose from a list or can you make a specific design?
A. I can make almost any design that you want. I have a library of wedding, birthday and novelty cakes but I can incorporate any special occasion theme / colours you wish.
Q. Can you provide a wedding cake stand and ceremonial knife?
A. Yes I can, for a small hire charge. (£20.00 for the stand, £5.00 for the knife + refundable deposits)
Q. What size cake should I order?
A. Advice will be given at the consultation.
Q. Do I need a specialist to set up my wedding cake?
A. It depends on the style of cake. A stacked cake wouldn't need setting up, but a cake involving pillars or supports will - I would provide that service if I delivered your cake.
Q. Do I have to pay a deposit?
A. Yes. See 'Terms and Conditions' for full details.
Q. What information do you need to know from me?
A. Everything!. From the date and venue of your celebration to your budget and style or theme. The best way for me to get this plus all the other information I require is to meet you so that I can create a beautiful cake for your special day.
