Party portions work well for family gatherings or where cake is being served as dessert at a wedding reception (in this instance you may wish to cater for even larger 2″ x 2″ portions). Finger portions are perhaps best for large buffets or children’s party bags.

Remember to allow extra for second helpings (especially if you are offering more than one flavour), or if you would like any left to enjoy after the event.

Multi-tiered cakes usually have a 2 or 3 inch difference between tiers depending on the design and portion requirements and can consist of one or more flavours. Browse Cakery Bay’s popular flavour menu here.


Cakery Bay offers a bespoke service with each cake being designed and handmade to order using the finest ingredients and materials. Cakes are therefore individually priced according to requirements and will depend on size, flavour and complexity of decoration. As a guide:

Celebration Cakes

A single tier, standard height iced sponge celebration cake to serve 10 party/20 finger portions starts from £90. Novelty shaped cakes and some decoration such as handmade sugar flowers, figures and toppers are at additional cost.

Wedding Cakes

Modern wedding cakes usually consist of 4 layers of sponge cake within each tier to give extra height to your centrepiece. Cakes can be fully iced with sugarpaste which provides a perfect canvas for decoration and an elegant finish, or ‘semi-naked’ which means a thin coating of buttercream allowing the cake beneath to show through – popular for rustic weddings.

The prices below are a guideline to different sized wedding cakes including delivery and set-up at your venue within a 25 mile radius (cakes can be delivered further afield at extra cost for mileage). Decoration such as handmade sugar flowers, figures and toppers are at additional cost which would be discussed with you and agreed upfront.
