Can MKcakes help with ideas?

As a small home-based company I can promise you a friendly and personal service. My free consultation in person, over the phone or via email will enable us to design your cake exclusively to your own requirements. The galleries are here to inspire you but please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss anything that you may not see here or any ideas that you have in mind. I love to create new bespoke cakes tailored to your individual needs! I always have plenty of fun ideas to help you chose the perfect cake! 

 

How do I order a cake?

Cakes can be ordered by phone or email. Simply tell me the size (or number of people), nature of the cake and when you require it and I will respond with pricing. 

Please see the enquiry form here

 

What kind of celebrations does MKcakes cater for?

MKcakes provides cakes for adult and children's birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, christenings, corporate events, “Thank-You” cakes, “I’m sorry” cakes, “get well soon” cakes – there are so many occasions to give someone a cake! Please see more types of celebration I cater for here

 

What size are the cakes?

Cakes can be as big or as small as you desire; however the smallest one I offer is 6 inch round (this should cut into 10-12 flat party slices)

 

How far in advance can I order?

Generally speaking, the more notice, the better! Availability is dependent on the number of orders being processed at that time.

How much do the cakes cost?

 

Cake prices are very much dependent on the size, flavour, filling type, detail required, whether the cake is 3D or 2D, whether it is tiered or if there are modelled figures included.

Time is a major factor in the creation of your cake. Some cakes can be baked and decorated in one day, more intricate, difficult or time consuming designs might take week(s) of preparation time.

However, the following should serve as a guide: (prices below are starting prices for iced round vanilla cake with no filling):

  • 6" - £45
  • 7" - £50
  • 8'' - £55
  • 9'' - £60
  • 10'' - £65
  • 11''£70
  • 12" - £75

Please note: Any other sponge type, filling, sugar decorations, toppers, figurines are extra.

I will be happy to provide you with a quotation based on your requirements.

All novelty cake prices are given upon enquiryPlease contact me for a individual quote. Prices can be given for previous work, but may change according to size required.

 

How should I store my cake?

All cakes should be stored in a cool place on a flat surface. They should never be refrigerated and should be left in their box until required. 

All cakes keep up to a 4 days after collection/delivery as long as wrapped and stored properly. It is recommended that once the cake is cut any left overs be wrapped securely in foil to keep the cake fresh. Serviettes and tissue absorb moisture from a cake and can cause it to dry out so are not recommended. 

Is everything on the cake edible?

Where possible - Yes.

Do you offer delivery?

I can offer delivery service within Milton Keynes area. Please contact me for a individual quote.

 

How can I pay for my order?

I ask for 50% of the cost to be paid when you place the order, which is non-refundable. The rest can be paid when you collect the cake. Please note: Your order is not confirmed until I recieve your deposit payment.

I accept payment in cash and by cheque and bank transfer. For cheques, I require enough time to clear it before collection date.
