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

    Investment - Working with fay

    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, are all considered when determining the final price of your cake.

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

      Fay will help guide you on size

      Design - how big?

      When it comes to serving cake at UK weddings, most couples prefer to offer it alongside the evening buffet. To ensure you have enough for everyone, it is recommended to cater for around 80% of your guests. During the design process, I will help you determine the appropriate size for your needs.

      Our standard tiers stand at approximately 5" tall, made up of 4 layers of sponge with 3 layers of filling, should you prefer the look of even taller tiers extras sponges or dummy layers can be added. 

      A portion guide will be provided to you; however, this may vary depending on the final height of your tiers and how your venue cuts your cake. You will also receive an information sheet for your venue, which will include my portion guide, ingredient lists, and a copy of my allergens statement.

      Dummy tiers can be incorporated into a design to add extra height, complement your design for when portions are not required, or add grandeur to the visual aesthetics of your cake. Polystyrene dummies are covered and decorated to look like real cakes, and can also help reduce the weight of the cake as larger cakes tend to be very heavy.

      Please be aware that opting for dummy tiers instead of real tiers in your cake design could lead to a slightly lower overall cost. However, It's important to note, that a substantial portion of the cake's price is attributed to the time spent on decoration. As a result, the cost difference may be minimal. 

      Delivery & Set up

      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!
