All of our cakes and cookies are bespoke and designed individually for every client. Great care is taken during the consultation to create a design that matches your requirements. Please get in touch for a personal quotation.
We offer a free consultation, delivery and setting up service within a 10 mile radius of our base in Brackley, NN13 6pw. Delivery beyond this can be arranged but may incur extra charges. Wedding Cake design consultations and tastings may be in your own home or in my cake studio by appointment, whilst novelty and birthday cakes can be discussed in person or by phone and email.
Wedding cake deliveries are direct to your Wedding Venue where the cake will be assembled and finishing touches added. This will save you any concern about the cake arriving safely! A cutting guide and allergan information will also be left with your caterers to comply with the latest guidance.
For our celebration cakes and cookies a 20% deposit will be taken to confirm the order. The remaining balance needs to be paid on delivery or collection please.
Wedding cake deposits are £50 to confirm date with the balance to be paid at least one month before delivery.
We accept cash, cheques or bank transfers as payment.
You are most welcome to collect your order from my studio. Cakes by Kit cannot accept liability for any damage caused to your order once it has left the premises.
We do not add preservatives to any of our products. Please ensure that they are enjoyed at their best and we suggest that all our cakes are consumed within 48 hours, cookies within 7 days and our fruit cake will last much longer.
