The following lists our answers to commonly asked questions, in particular our pricing policy, procedures, ways to secure a booking etc.  Please read carefully before you send out an enquiry in order to speed up the process.

Q1: PRICING ON CUSTOM DESIGN CAKES

Unlike retail cakes, custom-designed wedding cakes, celebration cakes and sculptured cakes are quoted by order (that is, not by weight).  As these cakes are handcrafted with unique, personalised details and style, price list on this service does not reflect different individual's taste and requirements.  Having said that, prices are largely dependent on: 

 

1) number of servings required (see Q2), and

2) the customised details of your cake design (see Q3)

 

For example, delicate sugar / handcrafted flowers are created petal by petal, pricing depends on type, colours and quantity required.  Obviously, more sugar flowers mean the cake is more expensive.

 

In addition, scuplture cakes (such as car-like cakes, dress-like cakes) are cakes that are scuplted from cake slabs.  As the name suggests, these cakes demand skillful craftmanship. These edible artworks have a high price tag attached.

Q2: CAKE SIZE

The followings show some possibilities:

 

Single-tier

Small: 8 standard size servings (equivalent to 14 finger size servings)

Large: 24 standard size servings (equivalent to 42 finger size servings)

 

2-tier

Small:  24 standard size servings (equivalent to 42 finger size servings)

Large:  46 standard size servings (equivalent to 80 finger size servings)

 

3-tier

Small:  56 standard size servings (equivalent to 100 finger size servings)

Large:  100 standard size servings (equivalent to 180 finger size servings)

 

Other than the above, sizes such as average, extra large, contemporary height, etc are also available.  As such, once the booking is confirmed, appropriate size based on your various requirements will be suggested for your consideration.

 

Please note procedures and time required to do a small and average cakes are similar, meaning cost per serving of a small cake is often much higher than a larger cake.  From our experience, a small single-tier cake is the most expensive per serving.

Q3: OUR DESIGN AND STYLING

Our wedding cakes are well-known for being elegant and romantic with an artistic twist.  While you are welcome to show us your preferred design from other cake designers / artists, we often use it as a guide only.  This is not only because of respect for the intellectual property of others, we also believe each cake designer/artist has a unique individual style.

 

While our celebration and sulptured cakes are largely inspired by our daily lives and surroundings, we do not provides cakes based on licensed characters (such as Disney or Sanrio) or branded logos due to copy right / intellectural property issue, unless prior approval is obtained from relevant parties.

Q4: PRICING ON OTHER CONFECTIONERY ITEMS

Other confectionery items, such as cupcakes, cookies, marshmallow pops, and cake pops are also handcrafted with unique, personalised details and style.  These are quoted by order, depending on:

 

1) quantity required, and

2) the customised details of your design

 

In addition, unless specified, the following miniumum purchase quantity applies (same design and colours):

 

Cupcakes:  12 pieces 

Cookies:  12 pieces 

Marshmallow pops:  18 pieces 

Cake pops:  18 pieces 

 

A surchage will apply if the miniumum purchase quantity is not met, and this is subject to our discretion and availability.

We are currently offering 12 different combination of flavours and fillings, including two which have won medals at professional competitions.

 

We are unable to use sponge cake / chiffon cake / mousse cake for decorative cakes; they do not have the necessary texture to carry the sugar emblishments which are relatively heavy.
