HOW IT WORKS: Please do get in touch to start the ball rolling. We can then discuss your initial ideas and thoughts via email or telephone. I always recommend a tasting session where possible, I mean who doesn’t like a little bit of cake every now and again! My face to face (or cake to mouth, however you like to think of it) consultations are £100 and you’ll get to try four of my flavours. But more than that, it’s about getting to know you, sharing ideas, sketches and working out what you want. Only then can I get stuck into the design process.
Are you too busy to meet? (I totally understand it can be a really hectic time, juggling wedding planning and your usual commitments) That is no problem at all, simply order a sample box of four flavours to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. This costs £40 plus postage. If you then decide to go ahead and book me to create your special cake, I will ask for a £100 non refundable deposit, which again is redeemable against your total cake price. Once you have secured your date, we can begin the design process over the telephone and via email.
Designing will continue until you are totally in love with your cake. From design stage, baking, decorating to delivery and set up, I ensure the very best in quality, consistency and professionalism throughout. tasting sessions and cake sample boxes are fully redeemable against the price of your Botanico cake.
TASTE: Taste is everything here at Botanico. Only good, honest ingredients go into our cakes. That’s why I only use organic free range eggs, organic milk, butter and organic cocoa throughout all recipes. All cakes are filled with buttercream and are then covered with white, milk or dark chocolate ganache. Cakes can be left covered with buttercream or ganache if you prefer that to fondant.

PRICE GUIDE: Each cake is priced individually according to design complexity. Typically a 3 tier cake to feed 100 people will start at £600 and 4 tiers to feed 120 will start at £850. This price typically includes a small amount of sugarwork but not a full floral display. Extra sugarwork would be priced in addition. I want to help you create your dream cake and am really happy to advise on options to suit your budget. Please note that because of the bespoke nature of our work, we have a minimum order value of £250.
