How do I order a cake?

Cakes can be ordered by phone or email or by using the form on the Contact page. Simply tell us the size and nature of the cake and when you require it. We will respond with pricing and delivery details.

 


What kind of celebrations does Creighton’s Celebration Cakes cater for?

Creighton’s Celebration Cakes can provide cakes for all events – such as children’s and adult birthdays, anniversaries, christenings, corporate events etc. No cake too big or too small. If you need a cake, whatever the occasion then Creighton’s Celebration Cakes can provide it. We do create wedding cakes, but they are special orders and require plenty of notice. Also our wedding cakes are all about fun, not basic white icing. So if you want something different, then give us a try!

 


What flavour are the cakes?

The most popular flavour cakes tend to be vanilla, chocolate and lemon, but Creighton’s Celebration Cakes can produce any cake designed to your specification and choice of flavours. The sponge cakes are also complimented with a middle filling of buttercream. Rich fruit cakes are also available but more notice will be required, as the fruit cakes are all hand made for individual customers.

What size are the cakes?

Cakes can be as big or as small as you desire.

 


How far in advance can I order?

You can order as far in advance as you like. Next week, next month or even next year. Some customers ordering wedding cakes have been known to order 2 years in advance! However, we do tend to get booked up very quickly, last minute orders are sometimes possible, but we are usually booked up weeks in advance but please contact us anyway as we will always try and please.

 


What style of cake can I have?

Anything at all! There’s no limit on your imagination and we can make any cake of your dreams. Children’s cakes can be anything from numbers, to cartoon characters, pets, hobbies, favourite toys, TV shows or films. Adult cakes could be football club related, sports , driving tests, TV shows, films, hobbies, countries, animals, shopping, housework or saucy items. The majority of the cakes made by Creighton’s Celebration Cakes are 3D, but the more basic 2D flat cakes can always be made if required.
