    what is the cost of a bespoke design by fay's cakes


    Every bespoke cake is unique from the inside out, making it impossible to provide set prices. Your cake will be tailored to your specific requirements and budget, along with various factors such as portions, number of tiers, the flavour combinations, and the level of complexities in creating your design. All are considered when determining the final price of your cake. 

    The price guide below will give you an idea of what you can expect to pay for a design by Fay, based on your headcount, the number of tiers, and different levels of decoration. A final price will be provided after your design has been agreed upon.

      The design, portions and your budget will determine the size of your cake.

      When it comes to serving cake at a Scottish wedding, most couples prefer to offer it alongside the evening buffet. I recommend catering for around 75-80% of your guests. During the design process, I will help you determine the appropriate size for your needs and budget.

      Our standard tiers are just over 5" tall, with 4 layers of sponge and 3 layers of filling. If you prefer the look of taller tiers, extra sponges or dummy layers can be added when additional portions aren't required.

      You'll receive a portion guide, however this may vary based on your tier height and how your venue cuts the cake. An information sheet for your venue will include my portion cutting guide, ingredient lists, and an allergens statement.

      Dummy tiers can add height and visual appeal to your cake design or be used when extra portions aren't needed. Polystyrene dummies are decorated to look like real cakes, dummie tiers can also be used for very large cakes to help reduce the cake's weight.

      Choosing dummy tiers instead of real ones may slightly lower the overall cost. However, since a significant portion of the cake's price comes from decoration time, the cost difference will be minimal and shouldn't be considered a cost-saving option.

      We deliver our cakes all over Scotland and beyond

      Kind words

      I may be biased but I’m convinced this was the most beautiful cake you’ve ever made! I was staring at it all day. I could not wrap my head around the fact those were sugar flowers and not real flowers… this cake was absolutely gorgeous from top to bottom!!! Thank you so much for bringing this cake to life!
