Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK, I am currently not making celebrations or wedding cakes. However, I am hoping to re-open by the 1st June 2020. At first I foresee this as possibly being with a slightly restricted menu of flavours, but in time as the demand on supermarkets eases, I should be able to lift this restriction. I will, of course, be implementing a contact free collection service, heeding the social distancing advice. The next couple of weeks between 11th May and 1st June are going to be mainly for taking future orders, there will be a minimal amount of orders actually going out in this time, while I sort out supplies and ingredient availability.

I do have a lot of orders in the diary for June onwards already, so if you would like to book in for then please pop me a message across sooner rather than later.

Regarding wedding cake bookings, I am still taking orders! 2021 is looking very busy due to the amount of 2020 weddings which have had to be moved to next year, so again, if you need to make an enquiry, please don’t leave it till nearer the time as the chances of me being able to book you in are getting slimmer by the week. I am going to be arranging a consultation day, but instead of clients visiting me at my home for the face to face meetings, I will be doing contact free collections for the luxury sample boxes, and the meetings will be done over messenger instead – not ideal, but better than nothing at the moment! I’ve even added a WhatsApp link on the Contact Us page, to make it even easier to contact me!

I understand this has been an incredibly difficult time for all, and I hope we are finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel now. If you have any questions or would like further information, please do get in touch.

Much love – Rachel.
