Weddings & Celebrations
There are very few occasions that we can’t cater for with cake! From weddings and christenings, to hen parties and birthday celebrations, our team of bakers can provide a bespoke cake selection that suits your occasion perfectly.
‘And the dish ran away with the spoon’ can provide beautiful wedding cupcake and fairycake towers that will act as the perfect centrepiece for your special day. We can ice your cakes in absolutely any colour and even personalise them with photos. We also have an unbelievable amount of sprinkles, both traditional and contemporary, so whatever your wedding theme or style we can produce a selection of beautiful wedding cupcakes to match.
We offer any size of cupcake in any of our delicious flavour combinations, ensuring that there’s something to please every guest (even those on diets!) on your big day! We also offer a selection of our delicious brownies and biscuits as wedding favours or an alternative cake centrepiece, and can provide simple and elegant top cakes.

Cake and Dessert Tables
If cake is your bag, then our cake spread and dessert table service could be just the ticket. Designed with true cake lovers in mind, our dessert table service is perfect for weddings and birthdays.
Select from our extensive cake menu, and we can work with our wide range of beautiful props to style the whole spread to look stunning and delicious in equal measure! (We have great relationship with a local florist Laura Coleman Flowers who can even provide beautiful blooms if you so desire! Alternatively, we can work with you to create a bespoke spread that indulges your favourite cake and pudding preferences – you can even let us have your favourite recipes and we’ll add them into the glorious spread.
