Cakes by Michaela specialises in making handmade bespoke cakes and bakes for your dream day. I pride myself on my work, not only on the design but the amazing flavour my cakes hold. I have been baking for around 15 years and seeing the utter delight on people’s faces makes my job so worth while.

Whether you’re looking for something small and elegant or something tall and fabulous then you have come to the right place. The perfect cake for your perfect day.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do your cakes last? Fruit cakes should last upto 3 months. Chocolate, vanilla sponge, red velvet and carrot cakes should last 5 days if they are stored at room temperature in a cool place. Once cut the cake should be kept airtight to retain the freshness. I strongly advise not to put cakes in the fridge, as this will affect the quality. You can freeze leftover cake, however, please be aware that the icing will be impaired, noone likes gooey melted icing!

How far in advance should I book? My bespoke cakes are hand-made. Many can be made within a week, that being said the most detailed designs can take up to 14 days (plus delivery if applicable).Wedding cakes I advise booking as soon as possible, details can change ; colours, themes etc. I can make alterations to the design up to 8 weeks before the big day and price accordingly.

Are there any benefits for first-time customers? As a general rules my cakes and treats are priced accordingly. But at times there are deals on larger orders and certain wedding bakes. Keep an eye on for these, or alternatively contact me to see what’s available or happening in the future.
