Let us create the perfect wedding cake for your special day!
All wedding cakes are bespoke and made to order. We can either design something new or you can show us a sketch or photo of what you like and we can work on a personal design for you. A swatch of your dress, your wedding invite, colours of ribbon, flowers or any other elements of your wedding can be shown to help design a bespoke cake just for you and your wedding.
Consultations and cake tasting service
Consultations are by appointment only. Cake tasting samples of up to 3 flavours will be provided at the consultation. If you don't require a consultation but would like to sample the cake flavours, we can arrange a time for you to collect them from our premises. There is a £12.50 charge for 3 cake samples. If you choose to taste more flavours then there is an extra charge of £3.15 per flavour chosen.
Allergies and Special Dietary Requirements
Nuts Our fruit cake and carrot cake are the only cakes that contain nuts as an ingredient. A nut free recipe is available on request. All of our other flavours do not contain nuts as an ingredient. However, we cannot guarantee that the ingredients that we use are not contaminated at source. If you have a nut allergy, please specify this at time of consultation.
Alcohol Fruit cakes are made with brandy, sherry and stout however we can also make them alcohol free on request.
Gluten free and dairy free cakes may be available on request. Please email us in advance to discuss.
We ask for at least 3 months notice when ordering a wedding cake, however depending on our schedule we may be able to accept orders at shorter notice.
A £50 deposit secures the date in the diary. A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the quoted price is required to confirm your order. Final payment of the balance must be made 4 weeks before the cake is collected/delivered. The deposit is non-refundable if cancellation is made. For orders with less than 4 weeks notice, full payment is required on confirmation and is non-refundable. If you are incorporating a fruit cake or a large number of sugar flowers into your cake, an earlier part payment may be required due to the advance preparation necessary.
Payments can be made straight into our bank account by Bacs transfer
The balance is due 4 weeks before the delivery or collection of the cake.
Cake Design alterations
Design alterations can be made where possible, up to but no later than 1 month before delivery/colleciton. If the alteration affects the cost then your balance will be adjusted accordingly.
Delivery charges for destinations are available on request. If you choose delivery, we will liaise with the banqueting team at the venue regarding timings and set up. If you choose Funky Fab Cakes to deliver your cake then we will set up your cake as well.
All cakes can be collected from our North London premises. Please note that if the cake is collected, the full responsibility for the safety of the cake is with the client and not Funky Fab Cakes Ltd. We will not be responsible for any damage to the cake that may occur after it has left our premises. 3 + tiered cakes will be supplied in separate boxes and will have to be assembled on site.
NOTE: A cake must not be stored in direct sunlight or left in the car or van for a long period of time especially if it's a hot day as it will melt! A fridge is also not a suitable means of storage for an iced cake, unless it's a buttercream cake. The cake must be stored in a cool, dry environment away from direct sunlight.
The possibility also exists that I may be unable to deliver your cake due to adverse or freak weather conditions such as snow or floods and that these conditions may make your venue inaccessible. I strongly recommend that you purchase wedding insurance to cover yourselves for this eventuality.
Cakes decorated with fresh flowers
If your cake design requires fresh flowers, your florist will supply these. We can liaise directly with your florist regarding the specific floral requirements and if requested can decorate the cake with the flowers on the site.
NOTE: Please note some flowers are not suitable for use as a cake decoration. Ask your florist for details regarding toxicity. We cannot be liable for any contamination to our food product that may arise from their misuse.
Cakes decorated with non-edible materials
The use of non-edible materials for cake decoration is increasingly popular. Please note that the 'craft jewels' and accessories such as brooches, ribbons, silk flowers, diamantes, beads, feathers etc that are used to decorate some of the cakes are not edible and must be removed from your cake before serving. All decorative gems and accessories are only used at the clients request and Funky Fab Cakes accepts no responsibility for any physical harm that may arise from their use.
Please note: A holding/confirmation deposit for a wedding cake is non-refundable. Should you cancel your order more than 4 weeks before completion, any specifically ordered items and work already undertaken in accordance with your order is additionally chargeable. For orders cancelled within 4 weeks of the completion date, the full balance will be charged.
"The best day of my life was topped off by my exquisite wedding cake custom made to order by funky fab cakes. The whole service from begining to end was very professional and personal, and I couldn't have wanted more from the end result. I would wholeheartedly recommend Maria at funky fab cakes to give you the cake of your dreams. If I ever get married again, I know where to come :-)"
