Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Honey-Belle Cakery Based?
Honey-Belle Cakery is based in Maitland NSW Australia, it is not a store or shop front, just a kitchen and a busy Caker.
How far in advance should I enquire/book for a custom made or wedding cake?
For Bespoke Cakes there is no set ‘recommended time frame’ you should enquire...some dates will be booked out for months whereas on other dates I will have availability to accommodate an order with only little notice. I would suggest to send in your enquiry as soon as possible. I will take wedding cake bookings no further than 12 months in advance.
How much are your Bespoke Wedding cakes?
This does depend on size, flavours, dietary needs and design. You can view all our starting prices in our information file here.
To get a more accurate price on a cake, best to get in touch.
Can you accommodate for Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Vegan?
Absolutely! I am very understanding of all dietary requirements and eating choices. It is important to me that nobody misses out, especially on dessert!
Most cake flavours in my Bespoke & Wedding cake menu can be made GF and I have a range of vegan options too.
If you have a small handful of guests that require dietary requirements I can offer additional individual small cakes to cater for them.
Do you deliver?
All wedding cakes and tiered cakes must be delivered! Pick up for these big, heavy special cakes is not an option.
Delivery Incurs an extra charge depending on the exact distance- This will be factored into your quote.
Paying for my cake and Deposits
Bespoke Wedding cakes: a booking deposit is required to secure your order. Deposits can range between 20%-30% depending on your order. Your order will not be booked and secure until your non-refundable deposit has been made. The outstanding balance will be due 14 days before your event date.
My florist is going to supply my wedding cake flowers, is this ok?
Absolutely! Please read more details about this on our full information file here.
Do you create fondant cakes?
Nope! Honey-Belle Cakery strictly does not use fondant to coat custom or Wedding cakes. Honey-Belle Cakery works with Swiss meringue buttercream and other fillings/frostings.
Do you offer wedding cake tastings?
Honey-Belle Cakery also offers Tasting boxes scheduled every three months. Click here to read more information on tasting boxes.
If you need to cancel your cake, you will be issued with a refund if the cake is cancelled 14 days prior to the event. This does not include your non-refundable booking deposit. Booking deposits are in place to cover any work gone into the planning of your cake, admin, ingredient/product purchases and any orders or work that was turned down due to being fully booked.
If Honey-Belle Cakery needs to cancel your cake due to personal circumstances or illness, a full refund will be issued and the opportunity to place another order in the future at a discounted rate will be provided.
