A major focal point of your wedding day
Every one of our creations is designed to meet your dream and is as unique as our brides and their special day.
Our designers will fashion almost anything from a fairytale castle to cascades of fresh or sugar flowers to reflect your wedding theme, colour scheme and match your vision for the focal point of your wedding breakfast.
All our cakes are freshly baked from scratch, with no preservatives, artificial flavouring or colouring, and skilfully hand-decorated with the finest sugarcraft, from grand to minimalist or spectacular. For this reason each customer has a personal quotation.
Please see below for a selection of the types of cake we are able to bake for you and to book your special design consultation and cake tasting.
With all the excitement of booking a venue, trying on dresses and selecting flowers, the cake – a major focal point of the day – is often left until the last moment to organize.
Due to our policy never to over-book and to guarantee you, the client, the highest level of service, we recommend that you make arrangements for your cake at the earliest available opportunity. Ideally this should be a minimum of 6 months in advance, but as many weddings are now held on week-days, please always check with us to ensure we are able to accommodate you and/or call the shop to discuss your requirements.

Arrange a consultation with our designer
We recommend you arrange a consultation with our designer, when we can fully discuss all your requirements together with sample cake tasting in relaxed surroundings. Prior to your appointment you should give some thought to main points for discussion. See the Check Lists below…
Your wedding breakfast deserves a focal point – a splendid cake. So it must be planned in every detail. You can use this plan to ensure that your cake will take pride of place.
As soon as the date for your wedding has been set you will need to begin checking out suppliers, asking friends for recommendations, enquiring at local retailers, bakeries, etc.
And as soon as possible book a meeting with a specialist. You must bear in mind that the summer months are booked up very early.
At Angel Cake Company we welcome requests for complimentary consultation appointments which will entail some consideration beforehand.
You will need to inform your cake designer about the date and venue for your big day; the number of guests; the theme and colour scheme for the flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses (take a fabric swatch with you) etc.; the style of the finished cake, take pictures or magazine illustrations.
At the consultation we will supply samples of the types of cake you may prefer: chocolate, lemon, sponge, traditional fruit cake, to name but a few.
Our designer will work with you to ensure the finished cake will fulfill all your expectations, draw up an estimate of costs and specifications for you to take away for discussion with your family.
When you decide to confirm your booking (at least 3 months or more before the big day) we will ask you to pay a 30% non-refundable deposit to secure our diary date – we only take a maximum of two weddings on a single day. Check the delivery arrangements, and advise us of the contact name at the venue, a returnable deposit cheque for any hired equipment and the person responsible for its return.
If you have requested fresh flowers on the cake, one month before the day ensure the florist has been contacted and the flowers are ordered.
Also at this point you will need to pay the final balance outstanding. Angel Cake Company will then liaise with your catering contact and take responsibility for ensuring that your cake will be perfectly displayed at the reception venue.

Wedding Cake Types
Various styles for your dream wedding cake
Stacked Wedding Cakes.
The most popular at present is what is known as the “American Stacked” cake. This is where each layer of cake – which can be a different flavour to the next layer – is positioned directly on top of the last.
A variation in this design which gives more visual impact and height is where the cake is stacked with inserts filled with fresh flowers.
Cakes can also be separated by traditional pillars, perspex separators that can contain jewels, shells, flowers and the like or can be completely separated by using traditional chrome stands.
As modern tastes & fashions evolve a different approach is demanded of the professional wedding cake maker.
Angel Cake Company ensure we keep all the latest trends available. Cup cake cases are constantly changing and improving so we keep a myriad of colours and designs and cupcake wraps to complement your wedding theme.
Cup cakes can be a more cost effective, but no less charming, as treats for your guests. They can also be beautifully packaged as gift favours for taking home as a reminder of a wonderful day.
Our cup cakes are hand baked and decorated the day before your wedding so are as fresh, light and moist as possible.
Individually iced mini square or round cakes can be made in any of the cake types described, but as some cakes are more suitable than others this will be discussed at your consultation.
Whilst the visual effect of a stand full of mini cakes is stunning if your budget is limited please remember that these cakes are time consuming, and therefore a costly choice.
Mini cakes pre-packaged make a personal and novel thank you gift for chief guests such as parents, bridesmaids and the best man. They may be designed to complement your main cake, and beautifully packaged to present as an individual thank-you gift at the end of the ceremony.
This is a modern trend that is becoming more popular as weddings tend to be less formal. A cheese stack will form a novel end to the buffet or wedding feast.
The cheeses are stacked, or displayed on a cake stand, decorated with tiny tomatoes on the vine, grapes, fresh figs and herbs, etc., and cut into by the bride and groom as is a traditional wedding cake.
Popular local choices include Cornish Yarg, Dorset Blue Vinney, Vulscombe goats’ cheese, Maryland cheddar, Somerset Brie and Somerset Camembert.
We have some delicious flavours for you to choose from...
Rich Fruit Cake
Our traditional fruit cake is packed full of juicy dried fruit. Once matured for extra flavour and fed with boozy dark rum giving it a delicious rich, moreish taste they are then covered in almond paste (marzipan) and decorated in an icing colour of your choice. A little goes a long way.
Coffee & Walnut Cake
Just like Nana used to make, an old favourite coffee flavoured sponge with a nutty texture. We sandwich it with espresso flavoured butter cream popular with the men.
Chocolate Sponge Cake
An alternative to our Rich Mud Cake – a light chocolate butter sponge is ideal for children or those with a light palette. A tasty chocolate flavour sandwiched with a mouth-watering chocolate butter cream.

Wedding Cake Price Guide.
As every cake we design is tailored to your personal requirements, prices vary and therefore a consultation is the only way to give you an accurate quote.
However, as a general guide, please see below:
Two tier cake from £275
Three tier cake from £450
Mini cakes from £10 each
Cup cakes from £2 each
Wedding Cake Portion Guide.
Fruit cake is normally served in smaller portions as it is very rich and denser than sponge.
Finger pieces are approximately 1″ X 2.5″ and dessert portions are approximately double this size. The number of portions is only a rough guide and will depend on who is cutting up your cake, how generous you wish to be and how hungry your guests are. Be guided by your design consultant if you are in any doubt.
