You can email us at info@thecravery.co.uk or call the bakery and speak to one of our cake specialists to find out how much time it will take to create your specific cake art. We have put together this simple step-by step guide on how to order a cake from us.

1

Availability

This is probably the most important question you would ask any baker. There’s nothing worse than totally falling in love with our cakes, only to find out we are fully booked on your party date. We would advise booking your party cake as early as you could. We often get fully booked on weekends.

Servings

It’s always good to have an idea of the size of the cake that you need i.e. the number of portions or people the cake is to serve. We offer standard six-inch and eight-inch round cakes on our website. Based on this, 

# 6"x2layers-13cm tall : 8+ Serves
# 6"x3layers-19cm tall :10+ Serves
# 8"x 2layers-11cm tall: 14+ Serves
# 8"x 3layers-18cm tall: 16+ Serves 

 

Please note, these number of servings are intended as a guide only - and it is always better to have more cake.

Flavour

Pick one of our classic flavours – Vanilla or Chocolate. Our classic Vanilla Cake recipe pairs fluffy vanilla cake layers with silky vanilla buttercream. The perfect cake for birthdays, weddings, and anniversaries! They are much more fluffier, tender and moist than the traditional sponge cakes. Our classic chocolate cake recipe is beautifully moist, rich and fudgy. Rich in chocolate flavour with a tender-moist crumb, and fluffy with the perfect amount of sweetness. An excellent cake flavour for kids' parties.

Fillings

Cake fillings are just as important as the choice of your cake sponge. Adding filling between layers holds layers together, giving your cake flavour as well as height. We offer four different types of main fillings:

 

# Vanilla Buttercream

# Chocolate Buttercream

# White Chocolate Cream

# Milk Chocolate Cream

We offer additional fillings of 

# Raspberry Conserve

# Strawberry Conserve

# Hazelnut Cream

# Salted Caramel

# Lemon Curd

Frosting

The frosting is the thick, fluffy mixture of butter and icing sugar that is used to decorate your cakes and cupcakes, basically the outer layer of your finished cake. It is the stuff that holds shape on your cakes and looks pretty in various designs. There are five types of frostings we offer: 

# Vanilla Buttercream
# Chocolate Buttercream
# White Chocolate Cream
# Milk Chocolate Ganache
# White Chocolate Ganache
