common questions and answers:
far ahead do I need to book ?
It's never too early to book - particularly for busy wedding times
(October to February)
I have only vague ideas about my cake
- what should I do?
Call or email me (Cathy) to discuss your ideas. If you still need
help or would like to look at my large selection of cake mags, make
an appointment! - I'll travel to you or meet at a mutually convenient
location to go over design ideas - don't feel like you are restricted
to the designs on the website!
Do you deliver to Northern areas such as Launceston?
I don't personally deliver to those areas however depending on the
design of your cake, it can generally be transported safely by a
Hobart based guest if you have one.
Can you ice and decorate a cake that
we supply to you?
Yes I can, however, whilst it is a nice touch to have a friend or
family member make the cake (or a tier of it) - particularly if
it is granny's secret recipe - it will not change the price of your
cake significantly (see below). Supplied cakes must also be of a
minimum height and of sufficient quality to lend themselves to covering.
oh why are some of the cakes so expensive?
Our cakes are made with high quality ingredients however it's not
the ingredients which are the major cost factor - it is the time
involved in the decoration. For example, each petal on a sugar rose
is hand cut and shaped. Cakes which require shaping such as 3d party
cakes all need a lot of work. Even colouring icing into bright shades
takes a lot of time!
