Do you create buttercream covered or naked/ semi-naked cakes?
Unfortunately not - I specialise only in fondant covered cakes
Can we taste your cakes before we book?
Absolutely! I offer a sample box service, that allows you to try five flavours of your choice from my menu. Once you have booked in, we also have a design and tasting consultation, where you can try even more (or the same!) flavours.
Do we have to have a set design?
No - my cakes are totally bespoke and designed to be the perfect centrepiece for your day. About 6 months prior to your wedding, I will invite you to a design and tasting consultation where we can discuss all aspects of your wedding and ensure that your cake is everything you both want it to be.
Can I choose more than one flavour?
Absolutely - you can have a different flavour for every tier of cake - most of my couples do!
Do you cater for allergies and intolerences?
Unfortunately I work from a small studio where I regularly use a number of allergens, such as wheat, nuts and milk. While I can adjust my recipes to bake without these ingredients, despite a thorough cleaning regime, I can never guarantee that any cake is totally allergen free.
We could not have been happier with our cake and the entire experience. The morning of the wedding, it wasn’t the decorations or table settings I was sneaking a peak of, I was trying to get a look at the cake because I was so excited to see our vision come to life. It was more than we could have ever imagined and I honestly can’t describe how pleased we were.
From our first appointment to discuss ideas and try some cake, we knew that we would have a wonderfully tasting showstopper cake. We were clueless what we wanted at the start, but Nicola worked tirelessly to design and make something stunning and unique. Our original wedding date was August 2020 but we had 4 different dates and a venue change by the time we got married in August 2022. Nicola’s patience and professionalism was outstanding throughout the whole process and our cake was outstanding!
We chose Nicola for our wedding based on her Instagram feed. We were really taken by the beauty of her cakes and the intricacy of her sugar flowers. We really wanted a show stopper of a cake and decided if she was able to craft such beautiful flowers then she should be able to achieve what we hoped for. We were NOT disappointed. Our cake(s) was more than what we'd hoped for and nothing like any of our guests had seen before!
Nicola at Boutique Bakery was so great to work with. She was prompt at replying to emails, sent us many cake tastings and met with us to discuss our design. She was always very helpful and friendly. Her cakes are absolutely perfect, incredibly tasty but also the most beautiful designs. Her sugar flowers could easily be mistaken as being real and her icing doesn’t have a single fault. She made our cake gluten free for us and you would never know. All of our cake was eaten and our guests loved it.
Words cannot explain how much we loved our wedding cake thanks to Nicola! Not only was it beautiful to look at, it was so delicious. Our friends & family loved the cake & still talk about it now! I don’t think I’ve ever loved a cake more. Nicola is one of the nicest people ever & nothing is ever too much. She understood my allergy, our vision & what we wanted even after a few changes! Will always recommend Nicola to everyone!
