Pricing

Please be advised these are ‘starting from’ prices – based on a simply iced cake with a board and coordinating ribbon. Further decoration will incur further costs depending on the time and cost taken to make. There are also many different variations to the sizes, with different height tiers, or dummies between tiers to add height etc. Please do contact me for an accurate quote.

FAQs

How much is a wedding cake?

The price of a wedding cake varies hugely, depending on your requirements. Size and design all play a part. Please see below for a guide to pricing at The Honey Bee Wedding Cake Co.

How far in advance do I need to book my wedding cake?

This also very much depends. Many peak dates in 2019 and 2020 are already fully booked. Low season dates can sometimes be booked closer to the time, but I would always recommend that as soon as you have your date and venue you get in touch to reserve your date. I ask for a £100 initial payment to hold your date – please note bookings cannot be held without this – and then the balance is not due until six weeks before your wedding date.

What areas do you deliver to?

I deliver wedding cakes to wedding venues all over Essex, London, Hertfordshire, Suffolk, Kent, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and beyond (subject to a delivery fee). Please see {link to ‘friends & venues’} for venues where I have special relationships, but I am able to deliver to most places!

How do I choose my design?

You may have seen some pictures of wedding cakes that you already like – it is helpful for me to see these so I can see the style of cake you’re looking for – but we will of course design you a completely bespoke cake to reflect you as a couple and your style of wedding. Alternatively, if you’re not sure what you like I am happy to provide some ideas at your consultation, I just ask for some information such as your venue, styling, flowers, colours etc.

What flavours can I have for my wedding cake?

Please see further down the page for my flavour menu, however I am happy to consider other flavours if there is something you would especially like.

What size wedding cake do I need?

I usually advise 1” x 1” portions, as my cake tiers are over 5” in height and this is usually a sufficient serving size. I also suggest that you provide enough portions for 75-80% of your total day and evening guests. Based on this, please see the table below for an idea of the size wedding cake you will need. However, we can adjust this if you would like to offer larger portion sizes, or if you know your friends and family will be making a beeline for the cake so would like more portions! Additionally, if you would like a larger cake than you need portion-wise, we can add dummy tiers to provide height without wastage. I am happy to advise on all elements of this, just ask!

Wedding Consultations

In order to design your perfect wedding cake, and to discuss details further, you may like to come and visit me for a full wedding consultation with a selection of tasters. The price of this is included in the price of all sugarpaste covered cakes, or if you haven’t yet booked in I ask for a £20 consultation fee which is fully redeemable against the price of your cake. This £20 covers my time and costs.

Consultation dates for January are now full. There are some spaces on 1st and 2nd February, and further dates for March will be released soon. Please contact me for more information.
