Anything’s possible…

Have your chosen your cakes?
The Cake Gallery features just some examples of our previous work and we offer a completely bespoke service to create a unique cake that is personal to you. Below is a guide to prices but if you require something else just send us all the details.

The price of our cakes depend heavily on the level of decorative intricacy involved and how labour intensive they are to make – some things can be very time consuming! Take a look at the gallery first for some ideas or feel free to send us pictures of what you would like for an exact quote. Click here for flavours and icing options, but note minimum order requirements below.

Feel free to send photos or anything you have seen that you like, everything can be adapted to your requirements, but it helps to have a visual starting point!

Other items
If you would like any other items baked such as cookies, marshmallows, macarons etc just get in touch with your requirements.

Minimum Order Requirements
Cupcakes
Our minimum order for cupcakes is 12 of a single sponge flavour, this is the smallest batch we can make of a recipe and everything is made fresh to order. All order totals should be in multiples of 6 or 12 thereafter. When placing large orders the minimum order quantity for each flavour will go up in order for production to be feasible. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Cake Pops
Available in vanilla or chocolate and dipped in either white, milk or dark chocolate or a coloured candy coating of your choice. Minimum order is 12 of a single flavour and colour combination but when placing large orders the minimum order quantity for each flavour will go up in order for production to be feasible.

Mini Cakes & Cake Baubles
Minimum order 12 of a single flavour and design. Orders should be in multiples of 6 or 12 thereafter (when placing large orders the minimum order quantity for each flavour will go up in order for production to be feasible.)

How to Order
Owing to the volume of enquiries received we kindly ask that initially you email bespoke cake enquiries to us. Please tell us as much as possible about your design requirements, quantity you want to feed / cake size, and importantly the date it is required to info@gourmetcupcakes.co.uk and we will email you back with availability and a quote. Following this we can arrange a more detailed chat or consultation if you wish to pursue your order with us.

To place an order for set price items such as cupcakes this can be done on email or over the phone on 01245 283986 (opening hours vary). If you are ordering for a wedding or event when you wish to reserve the date in advance you can leave a £95 deposit and pay the balance later once you have finalised your exact order requirements. Orders under a month away and/or under £95 in value are payable in full at the time of ordering for the booking to be reserved.

How much notice do you need?
**PLEASE BE AWARE THAT OWING TO THE RESCHEDULING OF MANY 2020 EVENTS, 2021 DATES ARE FILLING UP MUCH QUICKER THAN USUAL AND EARLY BOOKING IS RECOMMENDED… THANK YOU** It’s not so much how much notice do we need as to what else is booked in for the date you need your cake! All our cakes are made fresh to order right before your event so we will reach a maximum capacity for many weeks of the year. Seasonal times can be busier, but as we can’t predict when dates will fill up so recommend you simply book your order in as possible to avoid disappointment.

Do you have any cakes ready to buy today?
We do not keep stock of any cakes at our shop, everything is made fresh to order. This means you won’t get the older staler cakes like at some places, but it also means we need more notice to make everything, and have a minimum order. How much notice we need depends on what else we have going on that day, so best just to book as far in advance as possible, once the date is gone it’s gone!

Collection
You can collect cake orders by arrangement from our shop in Chelmsford during our opening hours which always vary. We will discuss with you possible collection times when we are giving your a quote.

Delivery
Cakes are fragile so we offer a dedicated driver delivery service around most parts of London, Essex, Kent, Herts, Suffolk, Cambs etc, with a full set up service for events. This is charged at a flat rate of £12 plus 75p per mile charged on the journey to and from our shop. We will often travel further afield by special request. Please supply us with your venue postcode when enquiring for an exact delivery cost.
