How to commission your bespoke wedding cake or dessert table

I love to work with stylish couples like you who appreciate the trend-led design, high quality finish and personal service I bring to your wedding cake experience. The beautiful tiered wedding cakes I design create an eye-catching focal point at your reception, elegantly tying in your theme and defining the space. I also make dessert table displays that combine cupcakes, cake pops, biscuits and pretty much any sweet treat that you adore, as well as a handful of celebration cakes on request.

As a one-woman-business, certain dates get booked up quite far in advance. As soon as you have a wedding date it’s a good idea to get in touch with me to check availability. Even if you don’t quite know what you want yet, if you love my style it’s worth reserving your date and we can figure out the design details when you’re ready.

 

There are so many beautiful places to get married at in the local area and I’m proud to be partnered with some of the finest wedding venues in Dorset and Hampshire, including:

5* Relais & Chateaux Chewton Glen, Parley Manor, Somerley House Estate, Milton Abbey, Lulworth Castle, Beach Weddings Bournemouth, The Italian Villa, Sandbanks Hotel, Harbour Heights, Haven Hotel and The Chine Hotel and Bishops Boutique Hotel.

If you’re lucky enough to be marrying at one of these venues, you’ll benefit from my knowledge of the setting and plenty of ideas to make the most out of your cake display. I’m also happy to deliver outside of these areas, to the surrounding counties of Wiltshire, Somerset and Berkshire, as well as London.

Investment

Your wedding cake is designed from scratch so that you can have something that brilliantly reflects your style and suits your budget.

After our tasting and consultation, I’ll provide you with a quote for your design, which is based on the number of servings you need, the size of the cake and the complexity of the design.

I hand deliver and set up every wedding cake within Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and London so that you (and I) can relax knowing that everything will be set up beautifully to plan on the day.

Prices start from £425 for a 3-tier cake, coordinating sweet treats from £2.75 and there is a minimum order of £500.

the order process

Get in touch to check my availability as soon as you know your wedding date. You can either place a £100 deposit to reserve your date in advance or sample some cake first by booking a tasting for £25. Both deposits are redeemed on your full cake order.

 

We’ll arrange a mutually convenient time to try lots of delicious cake and we’ll talk through your wedding style so I understand how the cake fits within it. I’ll put together your perfect design and we’ll finalise all the details, such as guest numbers and price over email.

 

You can relax in the lead up to your wedding day knowing you’re in safe hands. The balance is due one month before the day and I’ll carefully deliver your wedding cake, making sure it’s properly set up and looking its absolute best.

FAQs

  • Where are you located?

    • I’m based in Ringwood, which is on the edge of the Dorset and Hampshire countryside. I regularly deliver to Bournemouth and cover the surrounding counties of Wiltshire, Somerset and Berkshire, as well as London. The most important things is that we’re a perfect match like strawberries and champagne!
  • Do you deliver and set up?

    • Yes and most of my tiered designs aren’t suitable for you to collect as they need special attention when setting up to make sure they look their absolute best. I also think you don’t need to be stressing about getting your cake or dessert table components to the venue safely when you’re about the get married!
  • Can I book a tasting and is there a fee?

    • Tastings are one of the very best bits of wedding planning and lots of fun! You’ll get to explore the details of my cake designs in person and enjoy plenty of delicious cake flavour combinations. There is a small fee of £25, which will be deducted from your full order. I can also provide postal tastings for £20 if you don’t live in the area or are too busy to meet in person.
  • Do you only make wedding cakes?

    • Contemporary wedding cakes are my speciality, however I also love putting together dessert tables full of smaller sweet treats. I do take on a small number of celebration cakes, designed in my signature style, so get in touch if you’re 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 non-refundable £100 deposit which is redeemable against your full order. I only take on a small number of commissions, so popular wedding dates in the Spring and Summer get booked up quickly. If you can give me 6 months’ notice, I’ll be very happy as it gives us plenty of time to get the design and flavours spot on. Sometimes I can work to short lead times, so just get in touch to find out.
  • How do I know how many tiers I need?

    • This is something we can discuss when you get in touch. It’s usually determined by how many guests you have and the visual effect you’re going for.
  • I’ve seen a cake I like online, will you make it?

    • We can definitely use it as inspiration! I’ll take the elements that you love and turn it into a bespoke design, but I won’t copy it exactly as the design belongs to the original cake maker. It’s much nicer having something that’s unique to you anyway isn’t it?!
  • Can you cater for my guests that have allergies?

    • Yes, I have a number of recipes to suit different dietary requirements, so just let me know what’s required.
  • How much will it cost?

    • I know it’s frustrating when you just want to know a price, but because there are so many factors affecting the final price of a wedding cake, I really do need a bit more info from you first. Get in touch to discuss the basics such as number of guests, date, style and I can give you an approximate price range before we move onto a more detailed quote. I do have a minimum spend of £500.

"The cake far exceeded our already high expectations in terms of taste and overall appearance. It blended in so well with our colour scheme (and my shoes!) but also stood out in its own right."

"Hayley created our dream and it was perfect. The detailing was amazing, everyone loved it and said they had never seen a cake like it. It will be talked about for many years to come."
