Our bespoke Wedding Cakes are available in a choice of 5 flavours and a combination of any of these is also available.

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.

The Price of your bespoke Wedding Cake


Cup Cake Wedding Cake!

Your Wedding Cake will be unique to you regardless of the design.

You will have the choice of colour, shape, style and flavour.

We would therefore ask that you come and see us at our shop or contact us via email, so that we can discuss your needs and quote accordingly to suit your requirements and budget.

Notice Required

If your wedding is over 12 months away we would ask for an initial part deposit of £25 to secure the date. The rest of the deposit, 25% of the total cost, will be due 6 months before the wedding. Neither the part deposit or the balance of the deposit are refundable as we may have turned another booking away.

The Balance of the full cost of the cake is due 8 weeks before the wedding when we will once again go over your requirements. Once this date has passed there can be no major changes or refunds. Failure to make the final payment will result in the cancellation of the order without refund.

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

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 Wedding Cake

  • We do 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

Payments can be made in stages if you wish and can be made by Cash, Card or Bank Transfer.
