Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance should I place my order?
Normally 8-10 weeks is the recommended lead time as we limit the number of orders we can take in to ensure each one receives our ultimate attention. You are of course welcome to book earlier than this though to ensure you are booked in for the date you want. Last minute orders may also be accommodated depending on availability.
The cake design I want is not on the website / facebook page? Can you still make the one I want?
Of course! We would be happy to discuss your design ideas with you. Simple email us at email@example.com or complete the ENQUIRE NOW FORM found on our website and we will contact you with a quotation.

I would like to order cupcakes, can you tell me what options are available.
For cupcake sizes we can make small or large/standard cupcakes.
Regarding flavour choices, Eaton Cakes generally make vanilla and chocolate as these are the most popular however other flavours can be made upon request. Fill in the enquiry form on our website and let us know what you would like.
I like a cake topper / cupcake toppers on the website / facebook page. Can I purchase it on its own?
Of course, we would be more than happy to make cake or cupcake toppers for you. Simply contact us and we can discuss it further.
I would like to keep the icing topper/flowers from my cake. What do I need to do?
The best way to care for the cake toppers is to place them into an airtight container with anti-moisture crystal packets (moisture absorbing packets are provided by Eaton Cakes upon pickup of your order) and keep away from direct sunlight. This helps prevent any moisture getting in, protects them from dust, and delays any fading of the colours.
