Can I collect my wedding cake?

Cakes are ready for collection/viewing from 4pm the day before your wedding. Most cakes are presented on an iced cake board and are boxed ready for collection. Either as a stacked cake all in one, or in individual boxes according to the style of your wedding cake.  For all cakes collected we suggest that your cake should be transported in the boot of a air conditioned car, but not a saloon. We do not recommend that cakes be transported on car seats or on passengers laps as they are not a fully level surface. At your wedding Venue your cake should be kept upright and level at all times.
