Every Cake Bespoke
“Thank you so much for making such a lovely and memorable cake. We hope to go to many more occasions at which there is a Buttercup Cake”
Your wedding cake is probably the most important cake you will ever have and is the centre-piece of any wedding reception. We love to make wedding cakes and offer a bespoke service to create the cake of your dreams. Whatever your preference – traditional, contemporary, elegant, vintage, romantic – we aim to work with you to match your cake to the colour and theme of your wedding. We would be delighted to discuss your wedding cake with you and offer a free design consultation, when you can taste cake samples and we can go through design options in detail.
We serve Manchester, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire and further afield. If you’d like some inspiration, please take a look at our Gallery to see some of our stunning creations.
A 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm an order. The balance is payable no later than 6 weeks before the wedding date. For orders with less than 6 weeks notice, the full amount is required at time of booking and is non-refundable. Payment can be made by bank transfer, debit card, credit card (2% surcharge applies to credit card payments), or cash.
If your wedding is more than one year away and you aren’t sure of what you would like at this stage, you can pay a £50 “Save the Date” deposit to secure the date in our diary and then we can finalise the design at a later stage. This is non-refundable and non-transferable. The full 30% deposit must be paid 6 months before your date and the balance will be required no later than 6 weeks before your wedding.

Wedding Cake Portion Guide
Most people serve a finger size portion of wedding cake (1” x 1”) as part of the evening celebrations. Our cakes are a generous 4” – 5” deep, so this is a perfect size to serve. The cakes can be cut into larger dessert size portions (2” x 1”) if you prefer, but this will give approximately half the amount of portions shown in the guide. We are happy to advise on the size of cake you will require for your number of guests.

Delivery and Set Up Service
As part of our service, we offer a personal delivery and set up service for our wedding cakes on a first come basis and advance booking is essential. We will liaise with your venue prior to delivery to schedule a delivery time and check that all arrangements for the cake delivery and set up have been taken care of. There is a charge for this service, based on mileage – please ask for details.
If you prefer to collect the cake from Buttercup Cakes, it will be in a transportation box and instruction for transportation, storage and set up will be provided. Please note that once collected, the cake is the responsibility of the customer and we are not liable for any damage thereafter.
Buttercup Cakes cakes contain dairy, eggs and gluten and are made in an environment that handles nuts, soya and alcohol. Nut, gluten or alcohol free cakes can be made on request, but we cannot guarantee that no cross contamination has taken place, due to the nature of the production.
