F A Q

How far in advance do I need to order?

Please get in contact either by email or telephone as soon as you have a date in mind. We are a small company and only accept a certain number of commissions each week to ensure each cake is perfect. Summer Saturdays book up quickly, often a year or more in advance.

How do I go about ordering?

For our wedding service, please complete the pre-consultation form. Once that information is received, we can organise a tasting and consultation at our studio.

How much will my cake cost?

Each cake is costed individually depending on the ingredients and amount of time required. As a guide, wedding cakes from £150 per tier. Naked cakes start from £325.

How about dietary requirements?

We can provide gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan cakes – although we do not have completely separate equipment for each requirement, every care is taken to avoid cross contamination. We have also provided nut-free cakes, however they are produced in a kitchen that uses nuts.

Can you make me one like this?

Lots of customers are inspired by cakes they’ve seen images of online. We aim to make each cake unique, so whilst we’re very happy to use an image as an inspiration, we want to work with you to produce something unique for you.

What flavours do you do?

As each cake is bespoke, the possibilities are endless! Some of our most popular flavours are:

– Chocolate sponge
– Rich dark chocolate
– Chocolate orange
– Black Forest
– White chocolate and raspberry
– Coffee
– Tangy lemon
– Creamy caramel
– Zesty orange
– Rich traditional matured fruit with brandy
– Light fruit
– Carrot
– Red velvet
– Fiery ginger
– Sticky toffee

Popular fillings include:

– Vanilla bean buttercream
– Chocolate ganache buttercream
– Belgian chocolate ganache
– White chocolate ganache
– Cream cheese frosting
– Lemon curd buttercream
– Espresso buttercream
– Seedless raspberry jam
– Strawberry jam
– Black cherry preserve
– Lemon curd
– Orange curd
– Buck’s Fizz curd
– Rhubarb and ginger jam

Each cake is covered with a layer of Belgian chocolate ganache to create a smooth finish under the sugar paste.

How long will it take to make?

It varies enormously, but a wedding cake may take 24 – 36 hands on hours from consultation to design to baking, decorating and finally delivery and set up.

How will it get to the venue?

All wedding cakes are delivered and assembled by us at the venue as part of our wedding service. Cakes are photographed before being signed off by the venue/caterer.

Can I hire a cake stand?

We have a good range of cake stands for hire, which can be viewed and discussed at your consultation. A deposit is required which is refunded on return of the stand.

Can you make favours?

In addition to cakes, we often provide macarons, cupcakes, cookies, cake pops and meringue kisses as wedding favours to coordinate with the cake. We can also create desert tables for your celebration.

“Our wedding cake was beyond beautiful, more than I had imagined would be possible, and working with her in the lead up to the wedding filled me with reassurance that she would produce on the day. I just wish that one could get married more often so we could order more cakes – I am looking forward to commissioning again for our expecting baby’s christening soon.”

‘Liam and I wanted to say a massive thank you for the gorgeous cakes you did for our wedding on Saturday. They were amazing, everyone thought so, we has lots of compliments about them. Was it how you imagined? It looked amazing!! Thank you thank you!

Liam and Verity Jones, May 2015

‘We had so many compliments Ketta, thank you. It tasted just as wonderful as it looked!’

Gemma Fordham, August 2014

“Ketta made me two perfect rustic country garden lemon feather cakes gluten free & made with fresh cream topped with edible lavender, also a selection of cupcakes lemon, vanilla & chocolate decorated with edible rose petals, flowers & lavender capturing the image in my head perfectly & tasting out of this world. I had so many lovely comments on the cakes from friends & family. I would highly recommend Flossie Pops Cakery.”

‘What can I say… The cake was AMAZING! We were both so happy with how it turned out, the attention to detail was astounding, it looked better than we ever expected! Not to mention tasting fabulous! We both want to thank you for being so helpful, reassuring, creative, professional … Throughout this process, we really couldn’t ask for better service.

Many, many thanks again, and hope you have a very happy Christmas.’

Gary and Laura Purser, December 2014

“Very helpful … Understanding.. I knew what I wanted and Ketta made it happen. Very happy!”

“I can’t put into words how amazing Flossie Pops Cakery’s cakes are! My wedding cake was beyond perfect – it was exactly how I imagined it to look. Ketta took onboard everything I said and asked for. I really enjoyed meeting with Ketta and tasting some of her cakes- they are delicious! I asked for a three-tiered cake (vanilla, lemon & chocolate) with white icing and small pastel coloured flowers. I also asked for cupcakes as my wedding favours to match the wedding cake. All I can say is perfect!!” 

 

‘I loved my cake so much, it was a real work of art. Diamonds all around! So sad that it has gone even though it was delicious.’

C Farragher, Dec 2012
