FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much do your cakes cost?
All of my cakes are custom made to order, therefor there is no set 'price list'.
The price of each cake can vary greatly with design chosen, number of servings required, the complexity of the design, complexity of the skills required to produce, ingredients needed and supplies.
Details such as hand made figurines, sugar flowers, shaping/sculpting of cake will all alter the final price.
I have included a budget area on the contact form, Please fill in this section as this helps me to suggest suitable designs that will fit in with your budget.
How much notice is required to order a cake?
I take orders up to 1 year in advance, the more notice you can give the better as I do tend to book out fast.
I require 4 week’s notice as a minium to ensure that there is plenty of time to discuss and confirm your design and details.
In some circumstances I may be able to squeeze in an order with short notice. This is dependant apon my schedule and the amount of work that is required, so be sure to ask!

This is done via counter-to-counter service though Qantas Freight and must be picked up at your local airport withiin a given time frame. This is an Airport to Airport service. Costs of this service will be determined by the overall size of cake, cake weight and destination the cake will be travelling to.

Unfortunately at this stage I am unable to cater to special dietary requirements. I use nuts eggs and dairy most days therefore I cannot guarantee there won't be trace elements of specific allergens.
