Anything is possible

Have you chosen your cakes?

Our Cake Gallery features just some examples of our previous work and we offer a completely bespoke service to create a unique cake that is personal to you. Below is a guide to prices but if you require something else just send us as much information as possible about the design and size we will be happy to quote for you.

The price of cakes depend heavily on the level of decorative intricacy involved and how labour intensive they are to make – some things can be very time consuming! Don’t see what you’re looking for here? Send us a photo of your own idea and we can adapt it for you.

Bespoke Cakes & Other Items

Shaped or novelty cakes with unique designs carry a minimum order value of £200. We are unable to take on commissions below this value. In order to quote for your cake we need a good idea of what you want it to look like, how many people you want it to feed or a size, and your budget where applicable. Feel free to send photos or anything you have seen that you like, everything can be adapted to your requirements, but it helps to have a visual starting point!

If you would like any other items baked such as cookies, marshmallows, macarons etc just get in touch with your requirements.

Minimum Order Requirements

Cupcakes

Our minimum order for cupcakes is 12 of a single sponge flavour, this is the smallest batch we can make of a recipe and everything is made fresh to order.

All order totals should be in multiples of 6 or 12 thereafter. When placing large orders the minimum order quantity for each flavour will go up in order for production to be feasible. 

Cake Pops

Available in vanilla or chocolate and dipped in either white, milk or dark chocolate or a coloured candy coating of your choice. Minimum order is 12 of a single flavour and colour combination but when placing large orders the minimum order quantity for each flavour will go up in order for production to be feasible.

Mini Cakes & Baubles

Minimum order 12 of a single flavour and design. Orders should be in multiples of 6 or 12 thereafter (when placing large orders the minimum order quantity for each flavour will go up in order for production to be feasible.)

Ordering

How to Order

Owing to the volume of enquiries received we kindly ask that initially you email bespoke cake enquiries to us. Please tell us as much as possible about your design requirements, quantity you want to feed / cake size, and importantly the date it is required to info@gourmetcupcakes.co.uk and we will email you back with availability and a quote. Following this we can arrange a more detailed chat or consultation if you wish to pursue your order with us.

To place an order for set price items such as cupcakes this can be done on email or over the phone on 01245 283986 (opening hours vary). If you are ordering for a wedding or event when you wish to reserve the date in advance you can leave a £95 deposit and pay the balance later once you have finalised your exact order requirements. Orders under a month away and/or under £95 in value are payable in full at the time of ordering for the booking to be reserved.

Collection & Delivery

You can collect cake orders by arrangement from our shop in Chelmsford during our opening hours which always vary. We will discuss with you possible collection times when we are giving your a quote.

Cakes are fragile, so we offer a dedicated driver delivery service around most parts of London, Essex, Kent, Herts, Suffolk, Cambs etc, with a full set up service for events.

This is charged at a flat rate of £12 plus 75p per mile charged on the journey to and from our shop. We will often travel further afield by special request. Please supply us with your venue postcode when enquiring for an exact delivery cost.

Notice Period

** PLEASE BE AWARE THAT OWING TO THE RESCHEDULING OF MANY EVENTS IN 2020, OUR 2021 DATES ARE NOW FILLING UP MORE QUICKLY THAN USUAL. EARLY BOOKING IS RECOMMENDED**

It’s not so much how much notice do we need, but what else is booked in for the date you need your cake!

All our cakes are made fresh to order right before your event so we will reach a maximum capacity for many weeks of the year. Seasonal times can be busier, but as we can’t predict when dates will fill up so recommend you simply book your order in as possible to avoid disappointment.

Premade Cakes

We do not keep stock of any cakes at our shop, everything is made fresh to order. This means you won’t get the older staler cakes like at some places, but it also means we need more notice to make everything, and have a minimum order. How much notice we need depends on what else we have going on that day, so best just to book as far in advance as possible, once the date is gone it’s gone!

Weddings & Special Events

For weddings, corporate and bespoke commissions, please email us for a quote and check the Wedding & Event pages for more info. Prices vary according to decorative detail and quantities. Don’t forget we are a creative cake company and our gallery is just some examples of our work! So if you have a photo of something you’d like, or just want to adapt one of our gallery cakes, anything’s possible.
