Sponge cakes usually keep for up to two weeks once they are covered with icing.
The portion sizes quoted are 2” x 1” and are a suitable size for sponge cakes. We have included all the tiers in the numbers quoted.
If you are having a fruit cake you may wish to give the more usual finger size piece, which is 1” x 1”. This means you will have more portions and may be able to keep the top tier if you wish.
Samples of cake are available on request.
An iced, but undecorated cake in fruit or sponge cake can be provided. This can be used for extra portions without the added expense of an extra fully decorated tier.
Please allow at least 8 weeks notice or longer if sugar flowers are required. However we can only accommodate a limited number of cake orders each week, so please order in good time to avoid disappointment.
