FAQ

Do you deliver the cake?

We offer free delivery within a 20 mile radius for wedding cakes, it’s £1 per mile thereafter. Celebration cakes can be picked up from us in Linden Village, Buckingham.

Can I mix the flavours of the tiers?

Yes. We think it’s great to have a different flavour for each tier, something for everyone!

Can I use fresh flowers on my cake?

Yes, your florist can advise on which flowers are safe to use on the cake.  We can liaise directly with your florist who should supply and deliver the flowers to the venue. We will arrange to decorate the cake at your venue.

Do you bake all your own cakes?

Yes. Using tried and tested recipes with quality ingredients.

I’m gluten free, can you cater for me?

Yes. We bake a gluten free range of cakes. Please note, however, that a range of flours are used in our kitchen.

I want a 3 tier cake but I only have 40 guests, what can I do?

You can still have a 3 tier cake! We can add a dummy tier to your cake, decorated like the others, that can even be used for your ‘cutting the cake’ photo.

How far in advance do I need to book?

We often receive wedding cake bookings a year in advance and it is important to book at least 3-6 months before your big day. We get very busy in the summer months so it’s best to get in touch as soon as you have booked your date and you can always contact us in advance to check if we’re free!

Do I have to pay a deposit?

After your consultation and you are happy with the design, decorations and flavours of your cake, we will require a £100 deposit on booking. The final balance is payable 4 weeks before your wedding date. Deposits are non-refundable for cancellations less than 6 weeks before your wedding date. Please contact us for celebration cake deposits.

Can I hire a cake stand from you?

Yes. We have a range of stands that are very expensive to replace and we generally require a £100 deposit, refunded when the stand is returned to us undamaged within 3 days of your wedding. Hire is subject to availability.

How do we book a consultation?

That’s easy: email us at info@lilibetbakes.co.uk or give us a call on 07706250172. We reply to all messages so please remember to check your junk mail folder if you haven’t received one.

Do you make your own sugar flowers and decorations?

Yes. Our flowers look real and we do get asked if they are fakes or made of silk. We take this as a compliment and proof that our love of making fine sugar flowers and decorations is one of the features that makes a cake from Lilibet Bakes so special.
