Beauty is more than skin deep, and our cakes are not just a pretty face…

Your wedding day is really important and we understand that you want everything to be just perfect, so we offer selected samples of our cakes to give you an idea…

Sample boxes are £10 initially for all enquiries but will be refunded from the balance of any final orders placed with us. If you have made a booking and left your order deposit already, your sample box will be free of charge.

All boxes contain a sandwich portion (think 2 mouthfuls for 2 people) of all of the cake and icing combinations listed below.

Please note samples are produced in bulk at our shop so the flavour combinations are set. As such we are unable to produce any flavour combinations other than the above as samples, but when you come to order your actual cake we have a much larger array icing flavours to choose from with a little imagination! See the Bespoke Cake Menu here

Your sample box will contain one of each of the following:

  • Victoria sponge (vanilla sponge, jam and vanilla buttercream)
  • Chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream
  • Lemon cake with lemon buttercream
  • Red Velvet sponge with vanilla buttercream
  • Carrot cake with vanilla buttercream
  • Caramel sponge with caramel icing

Samples are available to collect from our shop in Chelmsford or can be posted to you for an additional cost of £3.95 (postage costs are non-refundable). Please contact us in advance to arrange.

Allergen Information

All sample flavours contain milk, soy, egg, and wheat. Carrot also contains nuts and owing to production processes of sample boxes other flavours may contain traces of nuts too.

Unfortunately we are currently unable to produce cake samples for any dietary restrictions or allergies.
