Frequently Asked Questions

I strive to use locally produced and organic ingredients where possible, with a focus on fresh, natural and quality ingredients – real unsalted butter, organic eggs, vanilla bean extract and dark chocolate with a minimum 70% cocoa content.

My cakes and biscuits have basic starting prices (see below) The price of our cakes depends on the design you chose. Flowers, figures and decoration are all priced separately in relation to their complexity.

Payment in full is required a full three weeks prior to the scheduled collection or delivery date of all orders. A 50% non-refundable deposit will be required at the time of ordering along with a signed contract to officially book your date.

Orders with a shorter lead time (less than three weeks) must be paid in full at the time of booking.

I am not responsible for you not having a cake supplied by Estrele Cakes if you fail to complete all payments and deposits required prior to the event by the deadlines specified.

The date of your final payment is the final date for any changes of size, style or flavours of the cake. Any changes requested after this date cannot be guaranteed and may be subject to additional charges.

Please get in touch with me via the enquiry form, or by email with your event details, flavour options and design ideas.

It is always better to cater for just under your amount of guests due to no-shows, diets, allergies etc. However we have had plenty of clients who order extra in order to be able to offer second slices to guests, have it for breakfast or tea for the rest of the week, or simply to be able to have a bigger cake with a larger selection of flavours for the guests. We have even made cakes for events that were simply for show and were not made to feed everyone.

All biscuits leave the cake room with a minimum of one month’s shelf life and will stay fresh when kept in a cool, dry place.  You can always pop them into an airtight container if you prefer.
