F R E Q U E N T L Y A S K E D Q U E S T I O N S (FAQs)
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located in Bower Hinton just outside Yeovil in Somerset.
CAN I BOOK A TASTING AND IS THERE A FEE?
Tastings are one of the very best bits of wedding planning. You will get to explore the details of our cake designs in person and enjoy plenty of delicious cake flavour combinations.
There is a small fee of £15.00 for each consultation for two people to discuss details and taste cake samples. This fee is deducted from the final balance for the Cake if you go ahead with the order.
We can also provide postal tastings for £25.00 (inc P&P) if you don’t live in the area or are too busy to meet in person. This fee is deducted from the final balance for the Cake if you go ahead with the order.
DO YOU ONLY MAKE WEDDING CAKES?
Modern-day wedding cakes are our speciality. We do also take on a small number of celebration cakes, designed in our signature style, so get in touch if you are looking for an elegant birthday cake or show-stopping anniversary cake.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO ORDER?
As early as possible! You can reserve your wedding date by placing a £50.00 'Save the Date' fee, which is non-refundable/non-transferrable and is deducted from the final balance for the Cake if you go ahead with the order. Your cake will not actually be booked in until the Booking Fee and signed Booking Form has been received.
As we limit the amount of orders we take each week and,, if we are already fully committed for a week with a couple that has paid a 'Save the Date' fee and we receive an enquiry from another couple requesting the same date, we will contact the first couple to check what their inentions are. If they choose not to book with us, they will lose the 'Save the Date' fee and the date will be offered to the other couple.
We limited the number of commissions, so popular wedding dates in the Spring and Summer get booked up quickly. Ideally, if you can give 6 months’ notice, this will allow us plenty of time to get your design and flavours spot on. Sometimes we can work to a short lead time, so it is best to get in touch to find out.
I'VE SEEN A CAKE ON LINE THAT I LIKE, WILL YOU MAKE IT?
We can definitely use it as inspiration! We take the elements that you love and turn it into a bespoke design, but we won’t copy it exactly as the design belongs to the original cake maker. It is much nicer having something that is unique to you anyway isn’t it?
CAN YOU CATER FOR GUESTS THAT HAVE ALLERGIES?
Yes, I have a number of recipes to suit different dietary requirements, so just let me know what’s required.
Cake Celebration cakes contain butter, gluten (wheat flour) and eggs and are made in an environment that handles nuts, soya and alcohol.
Nut-free and alcohol-free cakes can be made on request but we cannot guarantee that these cakes will not contain trace amounts of these ingredients due to the nature of production.
Cake Celebrations accepts no liability for customers suffering allergic reactions from eating our cakes.
It is the customer’s responsibility to make Cake Celebrations aware of any special dietary requirements that need to be accommodated in the making of their cake.
DO YOU HIRE OUT CAKE STANDS?
We do, we are growing our collection so please contact us to see what is available.
The cost of hiring a stand is £10.00 with a £70.00 refundable breakages deposit.
We also have one 7 tier, round clear perspex cupcake stand which can be configured to hold up to 80 cupcakes with a 6 inch cake on top and carries a £20.00 hire charge.
We ask, if possible, that stands are returned on the Monday or Tuesday following the wedding. In some circumstance we are aware that you or a family member might find this impossible so we would have to make a small charge for collecting the stand.
