How far in advance should I order my cake? To allow the Cake House the time to prepare and design a cake for your special occasion, do get in touch as early as possible to ensure availability. If ordering a fruit cake, please allow at least 3 months to give the cake time to mature.
What size are the cakes and how many will they feed? The wedding cakes are of a standard size of 6", 8" and 10" and they will feed around 80 guests with a 1 x 2 inch slice.
What flavours can I have? The three tiered wedding cakes come in a flavour choice of vanilla cake layered with vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam, chocolate cake layered with chocolate buttercream, and lemon cake layered with lemon buttercream. You can have a different flavour for each tier, or keep them all the same if you prefer. If you are a little more traditional, you can have all three tiers as fruitcake instead.
What are the price options? The sponge option is priced at £350 and will feed around 80 people with a 1 x 2 inch slice. The fruit cake option is priced at £400 and will feed around 130 people with a 1 x 2 inch slice. All cakes will be provided fully stacked, iced and decorated as seen, and securely stored in a heavy duty box for transportation to your venue.
What are my payment options? We require a non-refundable 50% deposit to confirm your order. You will then be provided with a confirmation letter setting out all the details of your cake. The balance is due one month prior to delivery or collect of your cake. We are happy to accept either cash, cheques (payable to Sherry Hostler, at 65 Christchurch Road, Tring, Herts, HP23 4EL) or BACS transfers (details on request).
Do you deliver? The price of the cakes is based on you collecting your cake from our premises, and does not include delivery to your venue. We are however, happy to deliver your cake to your wedding venue for you, which will incur an additional fee. This can be worked out for you on enquiry.
How do I store my cake? If you do collect your cake from us, it should be stored at room temperature, out of direct sunlight and away from any heat. Do not refrigerate the cake as it will adversely affect the icing and decor.
What if I need to cancel my order? If production of your cake has commenced, you may be charged for any elements which have already been made. I'm afraid that deposits are non-refundable due to the fact that I will not have taken on any other commissions once your cake has been booked into the diary.
Can I make changes to my order? The design of these cakes are as seen in the gallery, however we are more than happy to offer the bespoke service of adapting the colour of the icing, ribbon and edible decor to suit your own colour theme for your big day.
Do you provide consultations? I'm afraid I don't provide consultations for my Simply Stunning range, however I am more than happy to chat on the phone or via email to make sure that your cake is absolutely perfect for you. If you would like to go for a cake that is more bespoke in nature, prices start from £500 and will include a complimentary consultation also. Details can be found at www.sherryhostlercakeartistry.com
