"Thank you for the..... cake, which was a great success and most importantly tasted as good as it looked."

Cake making is a small but important part of what we do at The Cake Box. The skills involved in creating a unique cake for your special occasion take time, creativity and often application of new techniques to achieve the effect you desire. This keeps us on our toes, constantly learning and allows us to advise you with your cake decorating questions and to be more informed in our class teaching
We have however, chosen not to offer a wedding cake service, or fresh cream cakes, due to restrictions on space and time in a multi-faceted but small business and premises. We also do not offer cake pops or decorated biscuits. But we have contacts with many local experts who can help with all of these and are happy to put you in touch with them
So, what do you offer?
We create personalised cupcakes and celebration cakes, to match your ideas and budget in a variety of flavours and decorative finishes. We are happy to work to a image of a cake you have found, or to suggest a design we have done before, or to work together to create a unique design.
What flavour cakes do you offer?
Our tried and trusted sponge bases include Victoria Sponge, Chocolate buttermilk, Lemon sponge and  Carrot cake. Fillings can be jam, lemon curd, salted caramel or chocolate. Frostings can be flavoured buttercream or mascarpone type frostings for uncovered cakes. We also make a lovely Rich Fruit cake.
What coverings do you offer?
Most of our cakes are either sugar paste (rolled icing) or buttercream finish. The former gives a clearer background for decoration, the latter gives a less formal, perhaps more contemporary look.
Do you offer cakes for special diets?
Yes, we offer gluten free, dairy free, egg free/vegan cakes. We do not use nuts in our cake bases(except in our carrot cake as an optional added extra). We are a Nut Aware business, but can not guarantee nut free as we store nuts on the premises and use ingredients which have manufacturer's disclaimers for nuts. When we take orders for cakes we always ask about allergies and your cake will come with a full list of ingredients on the box lid.
How far in advance do we need to book?
We can take on 4-5 cakes per week, unless we are particularly busy with teaching and parties. Is important to let us know as early as possible in order to avoid disappointment.
How would we enquire about a cake?
We prefer an email enquiry, as this gives us a clear chronological record of correspondence. Alternatively you can come into the shop, but please phone first as we are often busy teaching or running children's parties.
What do you need to know when we enquire?
We need to know the date and time the cake is needed for, the flavour of cake base, choice of  filling and covering, number of portions, any allergies or religious or cultural requirements, the occasion, images of designs if you have them and any wording required
How soon will you reply?
We will endeavour to reply to confirm that we can take on your cake on the date you want as soon as possible. We will then work out an initial quote for you and if you are happy we can confirm the booking. Please be aware that if you add any extra ideas after this initial quote, the price will also change.
Do you require a deposit?
We do not generally require a deposit, except for larger cakes. Payment is on collection. For corporate cakes an invoice will be drawn up
How do you work out the price of cakes?
A large part of the price of any cake is the time it takes to make. So a small, complex cake may be the same price as a large simple one. Modelled figures often add greatly to the total time taken to make a cake.
We endeavour to work to individual budgets and will give you options to choose from. See below for more details
I have a small budget for my cake, what can you suggest?
We offer a sugar printing service, where you can print a family photo or selected image to put on the top of your cake with a simple ribbon base to finish
We offer a "wrap around" cake idea, where you provide toys such as dinosaurs or digger trucks and we create a cake background to arrange your toys on.
We can hire out toys/cake toppers to use on your cake.
We can make cake toppers an/or inscriptions to go on a supermarket cake base or a cake you have made yourself.
Cupcakes can often work out cheaper than a single cake, per person
We don't have a minimum size for cakes, but due to the work involved in any cake, we do have a minimum charge which is currently £35
How much are your cakes and cupcakes?
It is hard to give an exact price without talking though your specific requirements but the following is a very rough guide
Cupcakes range from £1.25 -£3.50 depending on decoration and quantity ordered
Our first estimate would be £45-55 for an 8" round and £65-75 for a 5"-7" 2 tier with moderate decorative finish.
Can we see examples of your cakes?
Yes - please look at our Facebook gallery for some examples of our cakes.
If you have any more questions, please contact us by phone or email.
