We just love mixing together the best of ingredients using sweet butter for our home made buttercream, Belgian (Calbaut) dark chocolate cacao on our fudgecake and organic lemons for the lemon curd. We do not use preservatives or chemical additives and as a licensed bakery we follow the Haccp program for sanitary regulations. Our cakes are baked using traditional baking techniques . This is what goes on behind the scenes that you don't see! After the mixing, whipping, baking and assembling comes the fun part of decorating each cake to the clients unique design. Once the cake is covered in fondant or butter cream, we dedicate our time to the decorating process design, which can take anywhere from several hours to over a 2 day period.
All our cakes are made according to your preference and number of people. We can create a 5-tier wedding cake even if you are in 40 people using fake tiers This has a separate cost depending on the structure and decorations entailed . We can also create a three tier for 150 people , and make several sheet cakes on the side to keep in the kitchen . Thi solution will reduce the price .
Gluten free cakes are available by special request for smaller cakes only. This is because the texture of gluten free cakes do not hold up as well as normal cake this holds true especially for cakes covered in fondant.
Since our cakes are baked fresh, we require a 1 week notice for a tasting, which sould be paid in advance and costs € 35,00 for 2 people including water, coffee and 3 flavour combinations, which can be chosen from our flavour menu. We suggest no more than 3 people at a tasting. If you need to re-book your appointment please give us a 48 hour notice. Cancellation should be made 3 days in advance by e-mail and deposit is not refundable.
When to order your cake
Since we do not do more 2 wedding cakes in one day we recommend booking your cake as early as possible during the busier months from April
through September. It would be best to order at least 6 months prior to the wedding as bookings are taken on first - come, first -serve basis .
Our cakes start at € 6,50 per person and up, depending on the details and decoration of the cake from simple to complex. To reduce costs, we can also supplement the wedding cake with sheet cakes although we do not make only sheet cakes for weddings. Our minimum order for a wedding cake is a 2 tier cake feeding 30 people. In order to save the date for your cake we require a 30% non-refundable deposit, the final payment is 6 weeks prior to the events. We accept payment though bank draft, Pay-pal, or cash.

Cake alterations should be made no later than 1 month prior the date of wedding. Any alterations that affects the cost of cake will be added to the final balance of the cost of the cake.

Delivery & Destination Wedding Cakes
We provide a delivery service to your venue. The cost of this service depends on the distance from Florence to the venue and incudes our time setting up the final decorated cake. The majority of our cake tiers are delivered separately and assembled on site. For this reason we deliver all our cakes personally assembling the tiers , piping borders, placing the flowers and adding all the finishing touches on site. Prior to all our deliveries we laise with the venue to ensure that cake table and cake stand are ready for us. Considering the warm weather here, our cakes are usually set up 40 minutes prior to the cutting of the cake. For safety precautions those wishing to keep the cake out on display during the reception are asked to sign a paper for full responsability. Once the cake is on the table we are not liable for any damages thereather.
