Frequently Asked Questions


How far in advance do I need to order my cake?

Please try to order your cake as soon as possible. If you are ordering a rich fruit cake, please provide three months’ notice to allow it to mature properly. We will endeavour to meet requests for short-notice orders, but these depend on availability. Call or email us for bookings.

What cake size do I need?

The number of people that a cake will feed will vary depending on how the cake is cut. For more details, please read our wedding cake portion guide.


Portion Guide

Our portion guide is intended as a reference only. This will vary depending on how the chef cuts the cake. Please note that iced dummy layers can also be included to give the effect of a larger cake without providing unnecessary portions.

How much are your cakes?

Prices vary depending on the size and complexity of the cake. Since all cakes produced are bespoke to your individual needs, pricing will reflect this. Contact us to request a quote and to discuss your specifications.


What flavours of cake can I have?

Just about any, within reason and in any combination, in different layers of tiered cakes! The most popular remain chocolate, vanilla, fruit cake, and lemon. For any special requests, simply discuss with us and we will endeavour to meet your requirements.


Can you just ice a cake?

We understand the sentimental significance of having a family member bake your cake. However, Sweet cannot accept responsibility for the food we have not produced. We do not ice or decorate cakes that are not made in our premises. We apologise for any disappointment.
