Cake Prices:
Cakes are priced exactly as seen for any flavour of sponge, fruit cake increases the price.
It may be possible to increase or decrease the size of the cakes which, in turn, will affect the cost
If a Celebration cake is chosen as a Wedding cake, please call for a quote as Wedding Cakes incur higher costs due to advertising, consultations, cake samples and more time consuming methods of artistry.

Mon-Fri between 9.30 and 3pm then 4.30 and 5.30pm

A mutually convenient day/time will need to be arranged to collect your cake.
Cakes must be transported in an empty boot or footwell never on a seat or lap.
Sugar Crafted Cakes cannot be held responsible for any damage to the cake once it has left the premises.
Cake storage
As cakes are freshly baked with no use of preservatives, your cake will have a  guaranteed shelf life of 2 days, this includes the day of your event and the following day. Your cake may last longer than this but cannot be guaranteed as I cannot control storage conditions once the cake has left the premises.
Your cake should be stored in a cool dry place and may be frozen if required but sugar paste coating does not freeze well so should be removed.
Wedding Cake Deliveries
Wedding Cakes are delivered free of charge within a 10 mile radius of Ripon, over this will be charged at £1.50 per mile one way only.
Delivery will be arranged with the venue directly unless a cake is to be dressed by a florist in which case, a time must be provided to have the cake delivered by so that it is ready for the florist to decorate.
Wedding Cakes (further information)
Colour samples will need to be provided to match the cake, if not provided, Sugar Crafted Cakes cannot be held responsible for incorrect colours on the cake.
If you are hiring a stand, there is a £30 refundable deposit needed to protect against damage, this will be refunded once the stand is returned within 4 days of your wedding. A mutually convenient time/day will need to be arranged prior to return. The deposit can only be refunded if the stand is returned within this time frame unless previously arranged.
