Frequently Asked Questions

1How far in advance shall we order our cake?

For Spring/Summer season (April to September) I highly recommend to book 6 to 12 months in advance. For the remaining months, 3 to 6 months in advance.

Do get in touch though, I will always try my best to accommodate your request. 

2We have a design we like. Can you create it for us? 

Why settle for a copy of another couple’s cake?

I believe you should have a unique wedding cake that reflects your vision for your special day and most importantly, you as a couple. I love to take inspiration from elements of your day such as stationery, venue, flowers and work closely with you. Let’s create a design that will make a distinctive statement on your wedding day!

3Can we chat with you about our requirements? Do you offer Consultations?

Of course! Once I receive your information through the Contact Form, if your date is available, I will email you with a suitable time for us to chat about your special day & how I can help.

Following our conversation, I will forward you a quotation and if you are happy to work with me, I will email you further information.

4Do you require a deposit?

To secure your wedding cake order, I kindly request a €150 non-refundable deposit. The remaining balance is due 4 weeks prior to your wedding.

To secure your celebration cake order, I kindly request a € 60 non-refundable deposit. The remaining balance is due 6 days prior to collection.

Payments can be made by bank transfer.

5Do you have a delivery & set-up service & where do you deliver to?

Due to the delicate nature of tiered cakes, I strongly recommend my delivery & set-up service. I deliver within a 2 hours radius from my premises in Malahide Co Dublin.

Please note final delivery charges are subjective to distance to venue, toll charges & parking facilities. If you wish to order with me but your venue is further away, I am happy to discuss with you a suitable arrangement.

6We’re having a destination wedding in Italy and would love to have one of your cakes!

And I would be happy to help! Being Italian myself, I love to go back to any part of this beautiful country. I can liaise with your wedding planner & venue and help you enhance, even further, your Italian wedding experience.

7How do I choose what size cake to order?

The number of tiers will depend on the venue and the overall vision of your dream wedding. During our consultation, you can tell me about your plans & I will advise you on several options to showcase your cake in a manner that will please you, your guests and maximize your investment.

8Your Menu has many tempting flavours, how can we choose?

I am so happy to hear you like the Menu. I place great emphasis on flavour and have spent countless hours testing my recipes to make sure your cake experience is one that delights all the senses.

Depending on your choice of cake tiers, I always recommend to go for at least 2 flavours.

I offer a Cake Sample Box to all couples who book with me.

Each box is comprising of 4 mini cakes in your chosen flavour pairing, and is available to collect from my premises in Malahide.

9Do you cater for people with allergies?

All of my cakes contain eggs, gluten, nuts & dairy, therefore are unsuitable for people with allergies.

I will provide allergy information on request and at delivery to your venue.

Lovely Words

“When our wedding was postponed, our friend arranged to have one of Barbara’s cakes delivered to mark the day. We were so impressed that we decided to order our wedding cake with her. Not only are her cakes visually spectacular, but they taste absolutely incredible too. She was a pleasure to deal with and & really helpful both on the run-up and on the day of the wedding making sure everything run smoothly. We would 100% recommend her services.”
