How far in advance should I book my cake with you?

As soon as possible. Please allow a minimum of 5 days notice before your event, although I can not guarantee that I will not be full up by that point. I have also made many last minute cakes so just get in touch!

 

How do I order a cake?

Please message me via the contact me section of this site, or email me, lilybakescakes@hotmail.com, or direct message me on Facebook or Instagram. Please do not worry if I do not get back to you straight away. I am a one woman business so when I'm not in the kitchen, I try to get back to all my messages and emails. Please give me a call if you are concerned about this.

How do you take payment?

I accept cash and online bank transfer. Payment is due in full upon your collection. I only ask for a deposit on my larger cakes, this will be discussed.

Does the cake come in a box?
Yes, all my cakes come on a thick board and within a thin white box, however no lid is provided as all my cakes are too tall. If you are traveling alone in the car, I suggest bringing a larger cardboard box to put the cake inside, of a few objects which will wedge the cake between.

Do you have a physical storefront I can visit?

Nope, not yet. Your cake is baked and decorated by me in a shared commercial kitchen space, and this is where you can collect it from. Please do not visit me here without a pre-planned cake order.

 

Can you ship me a cake for my special occasion?

No- unfortunately, there is no way to ensure that your cake will arrive intact.

 

How do I take care of my cake once it leaves your kitchen?

Keep the cake box on the floor of your car and make sure the air conditioning is on. The floor is the flattest and most stable part of the car. Try to avoid putting it on the seat, as it can cause the cake to slope during transportation. Keep your cake refrigerated (not frozen) and bring to room temperature an hour before serving. If it does not fit in the fridge, keep in a cool place away from cookers, flames and direct sunlight.

 

I've seen a cake on your Instagram feed that I love- can you make me something similar?

Sure! I can't guarantee that the cakes will be twins, but I can at least make them sisters.

Can you make a cake that uses fondant? 

Nope. This is a fondant free zone! (unless you're talking unicorn horns).

 

Do you make Vegan Cakes?

No, sorry! All of our cakes contain flour, eggs, milk and butter and I am unable to substitute these ingredients in the recipes.

 

I have a deadly nut/wheat allergy, that can potenially kill me. Can you guarantee me that no nuts/wheat will touch my cake?

I take your food allergy very seriously and would not want to take a chance with your life. All cakes are prepared in a kitchen where flour, dairy, and nuts are handled, so if you're seriously allergic you'll want to find a bakery that specializes in allergen free baking.

 

Do you do deliveries?

Sorry no, unless in some wedding situations, please question me on this.
