So, my daughter is a huge Corrie fan & her idea of a perfect day would be to sit on the wall outside the Coronation Street studios, meeting the actors who come out on their lunch break. So her cake was the wall, with an edible print backdrop, and a handmade model of her. ❤️ Can’t believe she’s old enough to drive now!!

I’ve been making cakes for the Stafford family for many years, and it’s so lovely to now be doing cakes for their grandchildren. Louisa loves her Sylvanian family of rabbits & Rosie requested models of her 2 guinea pigs ‘Pip & Squeak’. Hope you both had lovely birthdays girls. xx

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
INFORMATION FOR CUSTOMERS

I wanted to reassure my customers of my continued operation throughout this difficult time.

The Wee Cake Company has a 5 star hygiene rating from the Environmental Health Office. As always, the high levels of hygiene and hand washing that I pride myself on, will be maintained, along with the extra NHS hand-washing guidelines when returning from outside the workplace. If I or anyone in my household develops symptoms of Coronavirus online with the current NHS guidelines, customers will be contacted immediately.

If any customer needs to reschedule a cake order due to this current pandemic, your deposit will be held to secure your amended booking date, however a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice will be required for any changes. Unfortunately future availability cannot be guaranteed, but of course I will endeavour to fulfil requested rescheduled dates. If any order date needs to be changed with less than 2 weeks’ notice, it will be considered on an individual basis. If perishable goods have not been purchased or work started on any aspect of your order (such as model making), rescheduling will be possible.

I will not however be refunding any deposits already paid – these are always paid on a non-refundable basis (as per the notice on my page). Should you wish to cancel your order, this deposit can be used against a future cake order within the following 12 month period), again utilising the notice period advice above.

Unfortunately this pandemic is an ‘Act of God’ and is neither party’s fault, and I hope any issues arising can be resolved between us. Should the government put any restrictions on the country that prevents The Wee Cake Company from fulfilling orders, this is unfortunately out of my control and as above, I will be happy to keep your deposit for a future order.

I do hope that the disruption will be minimal. Please keep in mind that this is my business, and with being self-employed am not entitled to any sick pay or compensation should restrictions be put in place, but that the health and safety of my customers is my number one priority. I feel that I am being reasonable with regards to orders and will hopefully give you the confidence to continue to book in your celebration cakes with The Wee Cake Company, knowing that I will be fair and reasonable should anything prevent your event from happening due to this current issue.

If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Wishing you all good health.

Many thanks,
Fiona Griffiths
The Wee Cake Company

Wow! A bride & groom’s worst nightmare, but what amazingly memorable wedding cake photos! Do scroll down to the photo in the post’s comments, showing the scooped up cake from the floor with the happy couple who obviously saw the funny side.
Cake tables should always be sturdy, so if you are ever placing any kind of cake on one (whether tiered or not), please check the table underneath the cloth, as an expensive cake could easily be ruined in an instant.

Mr & Mrs Bailey ...Definitely the most memorable cake cutting 🙊 massive congratulations to you both it was a beautiful day celebrating your love.

Madison Lee's Cakes

This is a great film summary of the making of a beautiful wedding cake by Madison Lee's Cakes.
I love her saying “it’s done when I say it’s done” & highlighting the hours that we cake artists put into our craft.

Hello Facebook! This is the season finale of Tasty's YouTube show called Made by Hand. The episode shows the process of making a real wedding cake from beginning to end. Congratulations to the Meaghan and Matt who actually got married at the Cipriani Wall Street just a couple weeks ago. Thank you José Rolón Events for putting me on their team, to Ivie Joy floral arts + events for the floral inspiration and to Vaughn, Alvin, Lauren and the rest of the Tasty team at BuzzFeed for not only giving me a voice but showing the world what it really takes to make a wedding cake by hand.

Please share this video on your page - thank you all!

Elevated Concorde shaped cake on Manchester’s runway.
Taking time to engineer the structure is so important when creating cakes like this.
All set on a large specially made 30” wide board in order to keep the aeroplane’s long thin proportions.

Mammoth carved shaped cake of 3 Rottweiler dogs (Harper, Barkley & Martha) sitting on the beach, for a lady’s 50th Birthday party on Sunday, along with paw print cupcakes!
Complete with shells, pebbles, starfish, sea & sand, they stand on a whopping 32” x 30” board. Each dog is a cake, and overall the 3 cakes serve a total of about 140 portions of vanilla sponge with vanilla buttercream & seedless raspberry jam filling.
Creating unique cakes such as this is truly my passion! If you would like a show-stopping personalised cake created for you, please get in touch today.

Thank you as always for such a work of art.

Mel's Amazing Cakes

I am so thankful for all my amazing customers who understand the craftsmanship, skilled experience & time that goes into making a custom designed cake.
Mel from Mel's Amazing Cakes has written this post so eloquently I just had to share!
Please do read to understand more about why a cake is NEVER just a cake! 😁

https://www.facebook.com/332306103510411/posts/2104343522973318/

Hello everyone.
Firstly. You, our wonderful customers are extremely important to us.
So. I just thought I'd give you all an insight into exactly what goes into a cake from beginning to end.
Now, we're not the cheapest out there but we're nowhere near the most expensive.

Secondly. It's NEVER just a cake.
Sometimes we will be emailing and Facebook/Instagram/text messaging customers for days on end trying to nail down a design. Often late, or while we're eating lunch or tea, and often after a 12 hour plus day. It might turn into an order. It might not.

So we have an order.
We might need additional cutters.
We might need odd size packaging.
We might need different colouring ordering.
Then there are the wet and dry ingredients and packaging etc
Eggs. Sugar. Butter. Flour. Margarine. Flavorings. Icing sugar. Chocolate. Cream. Fondant. Dowels. Boards. Boxes. Skewers. Edible ink. Toppers etc etc. There is a COST associated with ALL of all these.
Then there's the Mixing. Baking. Cooling. Slicing. Filling. Buttercreaming (which is all home made). Refrigerating. Ganaching (Which is also home made ). Back into the refrigerator, then out for the application of the fondant which is rolled and smoothed by hand. Then add details such as figures, sugar flowers (which take many hours) rolled and individually stamped out lettering, and all the other bits and bobs. And that's one tier of an often multi tier cake.

You are paying for someone's skill. For years of dedication. For their investment in the tools, gadgets and machinery that make YOUR special cake.
We are not hobby bakers doing it alongside a 9 to 5 job. This is our business and our living. It's long days sometimes 7 days a week.
It's NEVER, EVER just a cake.

And finally. For those who have kindly taken the trouble to read this, give us a ❤.

Much love to everybody.

Mel, Ian & Jackie

another lovely cake made by Fiona. Thanks so much we love it ❤️
My work colleagues know I love our 1985 VW campervan - so they asked you to make a cake for my 60th birthday. My fellow van owners loved it so much that they used a photo as their Facebook group photo. Brilliant job - you have impressed a lot of people.
Well you did it again Fiona. An absolutely fantastic cake that tastes as good if not better than it looks. Thank you & see you in 3 weeks.
In the words of my daughters 5 year old friend “that cake was AMAZING. I loved it!!!”
