What is a Tiny Sarah’s cake made of?
My cakes are made from the best ingredients. You will not find mixes or artificial flavours in my kitchen, but mostly organic and fair trade ingredients – and obviously no animal products.
Your cake can be iced with ganache or fondant, depending on what style you are after.
A standard cake tier is 10 cm tall and consists of 3 layers of cake and 2 layers of filling. I also offer small tiers with only two layers of cake or tall tiers with four layers of cake, depending on the design you want – having different tier heights is usually very pretty! – and the number of guests you have.
What is different about your cakes?
A cake is never just a cake when we work together. Cakes are pieces of happiness as well as being pieces of art. It is imperative to me that we don’t make “a” cake, but “your” cake, which means that you will get a unique cake to fit your unique personality.
If you cannot afford a cake, don’t hesitate to still contact me. I’ve traded cakes for other things in the past and I might be interested in doing it again! I can also try and work around a budget.
How do I place an order?
You can use this order form or email me – [email protected] Don’t worry if you are not certain of what you’d like, I am here to help! If you have any, send me pictures of what you like or whatever inspires you so we can start from there.
Please read the FAQ and T&C to make sure we are on the same page.
How far in advance do I need to place my order?
The sooner the better of course – I am only a one-woman show! So if others were quicker than you, it will mean I won’t be able to take on your order. Even for birthday cakes, I will always recommend ordering as soon as possible.
Do I need to know exactly what I want to send you a message or ask for a quote?
Absolutely not! We can totally work together to find the design of your dreams – it actually is a lot nicer for me if we are both involved in this process. I also have loads of ideas and you might love one of them!
Make sure to send me all the info you want to give me, all your ideas, pictures of things you like – which do not have to be cakes – and anything that you think can be relevant.
Are there things that you don’t offer?
I’m afraid so. I work best when I make the things I love so it’s totally in your interest too!
I don’t make shoe cakes. In the same way, I don’t offer purse cakes – or any fashion cake to be honest! I do not print images to put on cakes either and I do not make rainbow cakes – I never use colourings in my sponges nor in my fillings – I only use them in fondant or if requested in the outside ganache for the design. Colourings have an effect on the attention and general health of children in particular and I think anyone should eat them as little as possible! I don’t do quilted cakes or sheet cakes either. Oh, and I don’t do fruit cakes. I love sponges and I prefer to offer what I love and love making so you know you’ll get the best quality possible!
Can you copy a cake I’ve seen online?
I do not and will not copy someone else’s cakes – I work incredibly hard to try and make cakes that are different and unique to and for you! I am very happy for you to send me images of other cakes as inspiration though – and you can also send me pictures of anything that isn’t cake for inspiration.
Do you do consultations?
I do! I do recommend them especially for wedding cakes as it gives us some time face to face to think about the cake of your dream and for you to show me your moodboards, inspiration, stationary etc. Plus you’ll get to meet me and see how cool I am. And last but not least, it might become your favourite wedding planning moment as you will be able to choose from four flavours to help you choose what you want your wedding cake to taste like! If you are unable to come for a consultation, do not worry – we can absolutely design your dream cake via email. Consultations cost £25 and usually last about an hour. If you’d rather, you can also just pick up the tasters. I can also send you a tasting box.
Can you add dummy tiers to my cake?
For sure. If you want a taller cake than you need slices, I can use a dummy made of styrofoam to make a fake tier – I only charge the amount of decorating work on them.
What about allergies? What options do you offer?
All my cakes are vegan. Although obviously none of the ingredients I use contain eggs or dairy, some of them have been made in a factory processing these ingredients.
I offer gluten, nut and soya free options for some of my cakes – but bear in mind that these ingredients are used in my kitchen.
Are some of your cakes featured on the internet?
Oh why yes! my very own wedding cake was featured in the 9th issue of Rock’n’roll Bride magazine. my cakes were also featured in love my dress, multiple times in Bride and Tonic, multiple times, on Aisle Perfect, Way Out Wedding, Let’s Bee Together, Magpie Wedding, Mr and Mrs Unique, Plans and Presents. I’m also on the following directories: The WOW Edit, The Eclectic Wedding Encyclopedia, the Book of Love, and the London Wedding Breakfast Club. Oh, and, last but not least, Sean from Fat Gay Vegan published a blog post about me!
What if I want to change my order after it’s been placed?
You have until two weeks prior to your event to change your order – send me an email and I will confirm all the changes if they are possible. Changes may require an adjustment in the price of the cake and not all of them may be possible.
What if I need to cancel my order?
Contact me as soon as possible to let me know. As a general rule, deposits are non-refundable as taking an order means having to decline others.
Do you deliver?
Yes! I successfully passed my driving test after three failed attempts (ouch), so now deliver all over the UK (and even France, Luxembourg, and all that jazz – cause I’m like that – so do get in touch if you want a cake from me that badly).
I sent you a message but haven’t heard back. What do I do?
I am only human and you have no idea how bad with technology. I may not have received your enquiry or it may have slipped through my tiny fingers – if you haven’t heard back a week after inquiring, please give me a shout as I usually take no more than 48 hours to respond.
