Birthdays, Christenings, Baby Showers, Weddings. Personally I think a cake really makes any and every celebration (but I'm biased of course!). The important thing is getting the look and taste you dream of without blowing your budget. Talk to me about what you want, and I'll be honest about what's achievable in your price range.
Hannah's Kitchen cakes are all lovingly homemade, using quality ingredients and maintaining my high standard of food safety and hygiene (my kitchen secured a 5* rating upon inspection from Leeds City Council). The price quoted will include a box and board if required and the set-up of tiered cakes. Cakes can be collected from Hannah's Kitchen in Leeds, delivery will be extra. A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to secure your booking, with the balance due around a month before you need the cake. Please give as much notice as possible; particularly for very large orders, or if your cake requires a lot of intricate detail!
No obligation cake consultations, including mini-cake tasters, are available for a small fee. These take place in my kitchen, and include tea & coffee or other soft drink. It's a chance for you try the different flavours available, and discuss with me how you'd like your cake (or dessert table, or Afternoon Tea) to look.
To try two sponge flavours the cost is £15 per couple. To try these finished in fondant, the cost is £20 per couple. Additional sponge flavours are £5 each and to include a fruit cake option please add £5 to the price.
While the information below refers mostly to tiered wedding cakes, all cakes are available in single tiers, and can be decorated to suit any occasion.
Drip cakes make a gorgeous centre-piece for any celebration. As well as lots of options for cake and filling flavours, you can tailor the toppings and decorations to your specific tastes. Here's some I made earlier!
All drip cakes are tall (approx. 5" - 6" and at least four layers of sponge), with buttercream filling and a chocolate ganache or caramel drip. Most are then finished with chocolate decoration, meringue kisses, fruit or nuts, buttercream swirls, sprinkles or a bit of bling! Drip cakes can also be stacked for a cool alternative to your fondant tiered wedding cake. It looks (and tastes!) sensational!
Prices start at £65 for a 6" drip cake including a selection of the above toppers. The choice of toppers, filling and flavours can be adapted - please talk to me about what you'd like.
Naked and semi-naked cakes are a pretty alternative to the traditional iced wedding cake, and they are very versatile. Choose one flavour of sponge, or a selection of your favourite flavours; have them stacked with fruit, real edible flowers, silk flowers or you may prefer to ask your florist for extra to tie in with your theme. You can add a bit of sparkle with gold leaf or a blingy topper - really, it's up to you!
Real edible flowers look fantastic on naked cakes - but must be ordered at least a month in advance (potentially earlier between May and September). I use a trusted and reliable source for 100% organic edible flowers - this way I can ensure that whatever goes on your cake is completely safe to eat. Prices for the flowers start at £46 (incl. delivery) to decorate a three-tiered cake, and £66 (incl. delivery) for five tiers.
Naked cake sponges are between 4" - 5" tall, and usually filled with a flavoured buttercream (for vanilla sponge you might like vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam, or prefer lemon buttercream and curd with a lemon sponge). To ensure the cakes are as moist as possible while on display, I use a sugar syrup which soaks in and keepts the layers yummy! Naked cakes are best eaten fresh, and I recommend they are on display for no more than 4 hours. I can arrange with your venue a suitable time to drop off and set up the cake to fit in with your day.
Naked cakes (incl. set up) start at £115 for a two-tier (6" and 8") without decoration.
Tiered Buttercream Cakes
If you're like me, you could eat buttercream off the spoon; perhaps you like the rustic look, but prefer your cakes a little less naked? Cover them up with a delicious flavoured buttercream, smoothly finished or with an elegant textured effect.
Buttercream cakes (incl. set up) start at £130 for a two-tier (6" and 8") without additional decoration.
Tiered Fondant Cakes
Ah, the traditional wedding cake. Trends come and go, but always old faithful remains. Doesn't mean it has to be boring, though. Whether it's a simple white cake, with edible pearl decoration, or a tiered lace number, or cascading flowers, or a Batman reveal cake; it's really up to you. Talk to me about flavours, design and size and together we can come up with something that's perfect - and unique - for your big day. And have a look here for inspiration.
Each fondant covrered tiers is around 4" tall. You can choose your favourite flavours of sponge, or the traditional fruit - or mix and match to keep everyone happy. To create an exceptional finish I use top quality Massa Ticino fondant - it tastes delicious and covers all cakes really well; it is however pricier fondant than your average high-street brands, and the cost of my fondant-covered cakes reflects this.
My rich fruit cakes are covered with a layer of marzipan, then a layer of fondant. Sponge cakes are covered in a layer of chocolate ganache (white, milk or dark to complement the flavour of the sponge), before the fondant is added. Please do let me know, however, if you would prefer buttercream under the fondant.
Prices start at £160 for a two-tiered (6" and 8") sponge cake; for fruit cakes, the cost would be £180.
Single Tier Celebration Cakes
Cake isn't just for weddings. Hannah's Kitchen cakes can be used for all sorts of celebrations. Check out the Kids and Theme cakes I've done over the years in the gallery.
Single tier sponge cakes start at £60 for an 6" fondant cake, without additional decoration. The sponge cakes are covered in a layer of ganache (white, milk or dark to complement the flavour of the sponge), before the fondant is added. Please let me know, however, if you would prefer buttercream under the fondant.
Cupcake / Mini Cake Towers
Cupcakes and mini cakes in a tower look exquisite; from very simple designs with naked mini Victoria Sponges and cupcakes with a buttercream swirl to much more intricate designs, they are a really effective alternative to whole cakes. Hannah's Kitchen offers to provide the cakes and can - with sufficient notice - hire out a clear plastic tower with up to eight tiers. Information on cupcakes and mini cakes can be found here with prices starting at £12 for a box of 6 cupcakes finished wth a buttercream swirl. For more detailed decoration, or to fit in with a theme, please contact me directly.
Why not have a selection of what you fancy, and book Hannah's Kitchen to arrange an Afternoon Tea; perfect for Wedding's, Hen-Do's, Birthday and Anniversary Celebrations! Check out my Afternoon Tea menu here; as always this is totally adaptable depending on your tastes and guests' preferences. If you have the savoury bit sorted, I can provide a delicious selection of desserts, enticingly presented on a mix of Afternoon Tea stands.
