Notice Required
It is advised to order your cake well in advance of the date of your function. 2-3 weeks notice is required for most cakes however BBKakes will try to accommodate some short notice orders if possible. During Busy periods please be patience as response times may take longer than usual. Emailing all your requirements will help to speed up the process.

Some cakes such as High Heeled shoes do take 2-3 weeks notice as they need time to dry. Bookings are made on a first come, first pay basis. We are limited in the number of events each week. A minimum of 2 months’ notice is required for wedding cakes.​ Corporate event orders placed at least 2 months in advance so the order can be planned accordingly. Each cake created is completely custom made from start to finish, which means we do not have any pre-made cakes for sale. So please secure a date to avoid disappointment.​​ Unless a payment is placed, your cake order will not be saved for that date.

How much does a cakes cost?

Since all cakes are custom designed, and unique to each client, there are set prices. BBKakes cakes are priced according to flavours, size, complexity of design and details. All tiered cakes have a base starting pricing of £4/serving. Base pricing includes your choice of any classic flavoured cake and filling flavour combination, clean fondant finish, and very simple decoration. We find that most of our clients choose designs that range within £6-£12 per serving.

Major factors that affect the price include cake sculpting, detailed piping, editing & prints, airbrushing and other time consuming design elements.

Faux cake tiers (made From Styrofoam and fondant) are available at 50% the cost of a “real” tier of the same cake. This is a fantastic way to add height, size, and presentation when you have a smaller guest list. Ask for details.

All sculpted cakes have a minimum sizing of 15 servings; This is a minimum amount of actual cake to achieve these designs. But alternative designs can be made using other edible ingredients

Buttercream: Soft icing made with butter & icing sugar should be kept in the fridge

 

Behind the Scenes

It is a big mis conception that the cakes are made in minutes and no effort is required even for the simplest of cake. Let’s just give you a bit of “Cake for thought”!

Most cakes take between 3-8 hours or more but there are many stages which take place well before and during the making process.

 

High heel shoes take many stages due to the drying process and detailing, so notice is required as you would not want your shoe to break.

 

Ideas are created from scratch or have to be work out and dissembled from other designs. It can take hours researching themes, acquiring dimensions and ratios for cake replications of cars, Trainers, Drinks, etc. Composing your list of ideas, interests, and hobbies into a cake design.

 

Research and Development not a lot of people want the exact same thing so sourcing materials is a regular task. Working out fair prices & estimating the length of time which is always different.

 

Sometimes mock ups are made (not charged), sketches and collages’.

 

Baking and cooling cakes levelling, shaping and construction of cakes is another time consuming task.

 

Coordinating multiple orders alongside time managing each stage of the cake. Cleaning is a top priority as strict safe hygiene practice is implemented throughout each day.

 

Attention to detail is one of the most fundamental qualities provided at BBKakes, but this all takes time!
