Cake Changes

If you need to alter the design of your cake order please contact us as soon as possible.

As part of our service we offer a personal set up and delivery for wedding cakes. We will liaise with your venue prior to delivery to schedule a delivery slot and check that all arrangements for assembly such as cake stand etc have been taken care of.

Fresh Flower usage

In the case of fresh flower usage, the responsibility for the flowers' safety, quality, freshness and colour will rest with the florist and not with Cakes by Louisa.

Naked, Semi naked, and Buttercream finish cakes

These types of cake are not as stable as a fully iced cake and in hot weather or in a hot venue, the buttercream can soften or melt, which can cause the cake to settle or slide.
