These arrangements are held together in a terracotta pot that you can keep.The price of the cupcake bouquet is £35 per bouquet centre piece
Q: Can I have a combination of cakes including sponge rather than just fruitcake?
A: You can have a combination of cake flavours for your wedding cake. If you want part of your cake to be fruit we would always recommend that the bottom tier is a fruit cake to maintain stability.
Q: How long before our event will the cake be prepared?
A: If your cake is a fruitcake we will bake them as far in advance as possible, the more mature a fruitcake is the better it will taste! If your cake is sponge we will bake these the week of your event.
Q: How long will my cake last?
A: If your cake is a fruitcake it will last for many months within an airtight container.
Q: Do you supply cake stands, bases or cake knives?
A: Netherstowe House can provide a cake stand and knife subject to availability for events taking place at the hotel. Please arrange this at the time of booking.
Q: How far in advance do we need to order our cake?
A: This really depends on the time of year that your event is taking place. The summer months are very busy so we would advise booking at least 6 to 9 months in advance. However it is always worth getting in touch as we do sometimes have a free space available.
Q: Will a deposit be required?
A: Full payment will be required at the time of booking for all cakes. The payment is non-refundable.
