Firstly let me add my Congratulations to you both!
At Mummy Makes Cakes we provide a personal and professional service from your initial consultation, to delivery and set-up. You couldn't find the more perfect place to get married than in the beautiful and diverse Cambridgeshire area. St Ives, and the surrounding areas have the most gorgeous natural backdrops for your pictures.
Firstly contact us to arrange an obligation-free consultation. Once your consultation is booked, consider bringing along any ideas or pictures of cakes you have seen, details of bridal flowers, table decorations, invitations, venue pictures/information, fabric samples etc. The more information you can bring, the better we can assist you in making your cake memorable!
The price of your very special cake will be determined by several factors including size, flavour, design and decoration. An individual cake quote will be calculated for you, when it is determined what your requirements are. If you are choosing a tiered cake, each tier of your cake can be a different flavour if that is what you require. We do not raise our prices or add a surcharge just because it is a wedding or event.
Only a limited number of orders are taken each month enabling me to give my full personal attention to every order. It is therefore often advisable, particularly for summer ceremonies, to place a deposit to secure the booking even if you would like to defer deciding on the wedding cake design to nearer the time.
We ask for a minimum of 3 months notice when ordering wedding and civil ceremony cakes, if you need a cake prepared less than this amount of time, please contact as soon as possible to see if this can be arranged.
Payment: To confirm an order, a deposit of 50% of the total order is required. The rest of the balance is due 4 weeks before delivery/collection. We accept payment by bank transfer, cash or cheque. (Cheque's need to clear before the booking is accepted)
Delivery: We want your special day to be as stress-free as possible, therefore Mummy Makes Cakes will happily set up and display your cake(s) on the big day, leaving you to enjoy the whole experience. I deliver and set-up within a 10 mile radius of my location in St Ives, Cambridgeshire. Delivery and set up is £30.

Traditional Wedding Facts:
-Traditionally with tiered wedding cakes each tier is symbolic. The bottom tier gets cut on the day, the middle tier is saved for the first anniversary and the top tier is saved for the first child's christening.
-Traditionally people would ensure they had some Rosemary featured on their big day. The sybolism of Rosemary is that Rosemary is an evergreen, therefore it is ever-living/ever-lasting. Love is eternal.
-The cutting of the cake is known as the first official job of the bride.
