Wedding Cakes and Celebration Cakes for Special Occasions in and around West Yorkshire
To maintain a high standard I take on a limited number of cake commissions per week/month which can mean that available dates are quickly filled especially during the popular summer months. Available dates can be reserved with a small deposit even if you are not entirely sure of the design for the cake.
PLEASE NOTE ~ All cake orders are accepted on the understanding that you have read and agree with the following terms and conditions.
A non-returnable date reservation fee is required to secure any cake order. A cake will not be booked into the cake diary until the reservation fee is received. Payment is due within 7 days of the initial consultation, after which the date will be released to other customers.
Payment can be made in cash, by cheque or by direct bank transfer or by using the PayPal payment link at the top of the page.
Payable by cash, cheque or direct bank transfer with the balance due in full *3 weeks before the Wedding *(4 weeks if paying by cheque).
A minimum of 3 months notice is generally required for wedding cakes but 6 to 12 months notice is advisable, as available dates can fill up really quickly, especially during the popular summer months.
Wedding cakes can occasionally be accommodated at shorter notice but this will depend on availability and the cake design.
Delivery ~ Is included within a 10 mile radius (local venues), Wedding Cakes only.
Delivery to further afield is priced according to distance and charged at 75p per mile (£1.50 per mile one way) postcode to postcode, with the cost being added to the final payment.
Set Up ~ From £15 ~ will apply if this is not already costed into your cake.
Payable by cash, or BACS (direct bank transfer) with the balance being paid in cash on *delivery or collection *(subject to T&C's)
Minimum notice required ~ 2 ~ 3 weeks
Cakes can often be accommodated with less notice but is subject to my availability and may also depend on the design required i.e. cakes with sugar flowers or complex models may require longer. I do not supply un-iced or undecorated cakes and I do not decorate cakes or cupcakes that have been made by others as I cannot guarantee the freshness or suitability of the cake to be covered. Please note that the minimum order value is £45.
Collection ~ Celebration cakes can be picked up on the day before the event (Mon to Sat) at a pre-arranged time.
Sorry but collection is not available on a Sunday for celebration cakes.
A minimum delivery fee of £10 applies to all non-wedding cakes within a 10 mile radius plus 75p per mile for delivery further afield (round trip).
If you opt for delivery, the cost will be added to your final payment. You are very welcome to collect or if you prefer you can arrange your own courier.
For insurance purposes and peace of mind all cake deliveries and cake collections will require a signature.
Transporting your cake SAFELY ~
Cakes should be placed on a FLAT, LEVEL, NON-SLIP AND CLEARED surface preferably in the boot of a car.
Consultations are available for couples who are interested in ordering a wedding cake from 'Dream Cake Designs' and have booked the wedding date and the venue. The 1st appointment is offered as a complimentary service for 2 people where up to 4 cake flavours may be available to taste (cake samples are at my discretion and depend on availability). There is currently no charge for this service (excl. budget wedding cakes where a £25 fee is in place to cover my time and costs). However if an appointment is made and then not attended without at least 48 hours notice there may be a rebooking fee of £25 should you wish to arrange a further appointment. Any additional appointment will be subject to a charge of £25 to cover my time and costs incurred unless the £50 date reservation fee has been paid.
