Chocolate Wedding Cakes

Chocolate Wedding Cakes are becoming increasingly more popular and provide an alternative to the traditional design. The cakes are based on our Chocolate recipe and can be covered in white, milk or dark chocolate.

Cake Decoration possibilities are endless with chocolate curls, truffles, chocolate roses, fresh flowers or fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or cherries and can be served as a dessert at your wedding breakfast.

Notice required for your bespoke Wedding Cake


Cup Cake Wedding Cake!

We prefer around 3 months notice for Wedding Cakes and require a 25% deposit when placing an order – this is non-refundable. This will secure the date and cover initial design fees.

Note that you can pay your deposit at our online shop.

Cleared payment of the entire balance must be received within 4 weeks of the event in order for work on your cake to be completed.

In the event of non-payment of the balance, we reserve the right to consider the order cancelled and the deposit forfeited. Cake orders which are cancelled at short notice (within one month of the event date) will still be charged for in full, as we are rarely able to rebook dates at such short notice.

If we accept a late booking within 4 weeks of the wedding then the full amount will be payable on order.

Delivery and pick-up of your special cakes

  • As a general rule, we ask customers to pick up their cake orders at our shop in Bacup.
  • We do however prefer to deliver and set up Wedding Cakes at your chosen venue.
  • Wedding Cake Prices include local delivery and setup within a 10 mile radius of our shop in Bacup to areas of Lancashire and West Yorkshire (for example areas such as Rochdale, Burnley, Rossendale and Todmorden)
  • Beyond 10 miles delivery is charged at £2.00 per mile
  • The cost includes assembly at the venue but does not include the hire of cake stands etc.; assembly – especially of tiered cakes – is very important to get the right look for your special cake and we would encourage you to allow us to do the job for you!
  • The hire of cake stands start from £15 per day with a refundable deposit from £40; this will be returned providing the hire items are returned on time and in good condition
  • It may be possible to deliver larger order of celebration cakes – please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
