Reserving your wedding date
I recommend you reserve your wedding date with me as early as possible to avoid any disappointment. A non-refundable deposit of £100 will secure your chosen date. Prices given over the phone or by email are approximate and will be confirmed during your consultation. Wedding Cakes required for a Bank Holiday delivery will incur an extra charge.
You can book a consultation with me to discuss your requirements. This is a good opportunity to bring along anything inspirational you have collected to help with the design of your cake; invites, colour swatches, photos etc, and you can taste up to four different flavours of cake. Any further consultations requiring taste testing will be subject to a £25 charge.
Minor alterations can be made to the cake design up to six weeks prior to the collection/delivery date, please be aware that changes to the design may incur additional costs. Last minute changes cannot always be accommodated but reasonable endeavours will be made.
Full payment is due 5 days before the collection/delivery date. Payments can be via cheque, cash, or bank transfer. Manufacture of the cake will not commence until full payment has been received and cheques cleared.
I am unable to refund payments made for cake orders which are cancelled at short notice; within 21 days of the collection/delivery, as I am rarely able to rebook dates at such short notice.
A delivery and set-up service is available and is charged at 75p per mile (each way).
You are more than welcome to collect your cake at a mutually convenient time from Lacey Cakes based in Wakefield, however, I am unable to accept liability for cakes that are assembled incorrectly or that are damaged during your own transportation. Wedding cakes can be substantial in weight and large in size and the components may come in numerous boxes.
Lacey Cakes (Wakefield) accepts no liability for cakes that are damaged after they have been delivered to the agreed location or collected from home bakery. Please take care when displaying your wedding cake, avoiding direct sunlight, spotlights or candles.
Wedding Cakes: All our wedding cakes are bespoke and custom made to order to your specification, therefore the price of your cake will depend on the intricacy of the design and how long it will take to create, as well as the size and flavours.
I recommend a personal consultation to discuss your requirements fully. Costs will be discussed at your consultation and followed up with an emailed quotation. If you have a set budget please let us know, so that we can design your cake accordingly.
The following is intended as a guide to how basic prices might vary depending on the size of the tiers.
Details such as: hand-crafted sugar flowers, icing ruffles, edible gold/silver leaf and intricate lace and piping work will be priced in addition to basic prices, as these details often take a very long time to create. For instance, a cascade of sugar flowers can take several weeks to make. (Birdcage wedding cakes are classed as 4 tiers)
