FAQS

What style of wedding cakes do you make?

We're known for creating bold statement wedding cakes baked just for you in indulgent flavour combinations. Delectable homemade sponge filled with fresh buttercream finished with a decadent chocolate ganache and a flawless rich fondant icing or a delicious buttercream icing as an alternative. Hand crafted sugar flowers full of colour are our speciality. Each one is made petal by petal to create the most delicate of florals. Every wedding cake and macaron tower that we make is inspired from the nature surrounding us. Natural elegance handcrafted into your wedding cake design.

What wedding cake and macaron flavours can I choose?

Your wedding cake starts with taste! We've carefully crafted our unique recipes for every flavour to ensure your cake and macarons are indulgent and irresistibly delicious – exactly how your wedding cake should be. Our flavours are baked and created just for you - from zingy to rich, floral to fruity but always downright delicious! Ingredients are at the heart of your cake design and are more than simply eggs, butter, sugar and flour. To give an example, we bake everything from Boozy Berry Chocolate, Orange Blossom and Almond, Coconut & Blueberry and not forgetting a classic Luscious Lemon. These are just a few of our flavours to tempt your tastebuds and more can be found at https://www.bluebellkitchen.co.uk/design-and-taste/cake-menu/. They are the essence of your dream wedding cake.

Do you post tasting boxes and how do I order?

Yes, we encourage you to order a sumptuous taster box which includes five of our most popular cake flavours and/ or a selection of macarons for you to enjoy at home. This enables you to take your time to savour each and every flavour. When you order your tasting box, which is posted to you via Royal Mail Special Delivery (Next Day) you'll be able to book your wedding cake consultation at the same time. Our favourite part of your wedding cake tasting experience is sitting with you virtually or in person at our studio in Maidstone, Kent. During your consultation we’d love to find out more about you both and for you to get to know us a little and to get a real feeling for the overall effect that you would like your wedding cake to have as part of your special day. Our price for your tasting box, which includes your wedding cake consultation is £35.00.

Will you deliver my wedding cake?

We always offer to deliver and set up your wedding cake/macaron tower to take away all that last minute stress. Generally we offer an inclusive delivery and set up service for our bespoke wedding cakes/macaron towers within 30 miles of our cake design studio. However, please note that occasionally additional delivery charges may apply. We are based in Maidstone in Kent so are perfectly placed to deliver throughout the South East including London, Essex, Sussex, Surrey and of course Kent.

Do you offer fresh flowers?

There are many fresh flowers that are toxic and are not suitable for contact with food so we don’t add fresh flowers to your wedding cake. We offer either handmade sugar flowers or exquisite silk flowers. As well as looking amazing, sugar flowers can last a lifetime! There’s no need to worry about the heat wilting the sugar flowers on your wedding cake. The only design limit on sugar flowers is your imagination ... who says they have to be botanically correct? Colours not found in nature; gold painted, sparkling roses; fantasy flowers are all possible with sugar flowers.

Do you cater for guests who have special dietary requirements?

All of our cakes contain wheat (gluten), egg, dairy and soya as standard. Our cakes have been prepared in a kitchen where allergens may be present and therefore may contain traces of the following allergens: celery, cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, lupin, milk, molluscs, mustard, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, soya, sulphur dioxide. We do make dairy free and “without gluten” cakes, and are very happy to discuss flavours with you. If you have a few guests with special diets we can always make a small cutting cake especially for them. Our macarons are made without gluten i.e. do not include any ingredients that contain gluten. They do contain nuts. We always provide you/ your venue with a list of allergens.

What else do you make apart from wedding cakes?

Macarons, macarons and macarons! Nothing says statement like a macaron tower and you may, like many other couples decide to have this as an alternative to a traditional wedding cake. For something special, these towers tick every box. Impressive, impactful, imaginative and irresistible, each macaron is filled with handmade buttercream or ganache in colours and flavours of your choice. From pretty pastels or bold shades to a wow-factor ombre design or decadent gold leaf with hand painted detailing, these towers are an amazing alternative centrepiece.

The cake you made for us was a work of art! It was the most beautiful cake I've ever seen! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication to make it perfect. The sugar flowers looked more beautiful than our real flowers...every single last crumb was eaten.

Thank you again, it (the macaron tower) was wonderful ! Some French guests told us they've never eaten so good macarons.

Betty and Julien, Lost Village of Dode

I wanted to give our heartfelt thanks to you both for everything on the lead up to the wedding including the multiple postponements. We were so pleased with the macaron tower it really was a highlight for us on the day, and we really looked forward to it! It was stunning, and different to the usual wedding cake so we had so many compliments from our guests....its a testament to how delicious and delicate they were that nothing was left!
