Wedding cakes are truly one of my favorite cakes to make. At Nina Bakes Cakes I create glamorous and elegant wedding cakes – perfect for those occasions where a statement cake is the best centerpiece. Below you’ll find some frequently asked questions that’ll help get you started.
How far in advance should you book your cake?
As it is only myself who designs, bakes and decorates all of the cakes at Nina Bakes Cakes, I am only able to take on a limited amount of orders per week to maintain my high standards. It is also worth bearing in mind that all wedding and celebration cakes require planning, therefore I would prefer as much notice as possible. Although sometimes, I may be able to accommodate a cake at shorter notice, so please do always ask. If you wish to book your cake early but are unsure of the design or colors, this is not a problem. Final consultations can take place at a later date.
Do you offer cake consultations / cake tasting sessions?
Yes! I hold regular consultations throughout the year. Due to COVID-19, I have temporarily suspended in-person cake tastings as a precautionary measure. However, tasting boxes are available for pick up. It’s the perfect opportunity for you to taste a selection of my cakes in the comfort of your own home! They also make perfect gifts to send to family or friends.
My tasting boxes cost $40 and include 6 different cake samples and sugar cookies, pralines, or macarons. Tasting boxes include a complimentary consultation and the cost of your tasting box deducted from your final balance. Minimum order of $500 applies.
All of the wedding and celebration cakes which I make are bespoke, so prices will vary depending on the size of the cake and the complexity of the design.
With so many variables affecting the price I think starting prices can therefore be a bit misleading, so the pricing guide below shows you the average prices you would expect to pay for one of my cakes.
Please note that labor intensive designs with lots of sugar work (such as ruffles and sugar flowers) or lots of fresh florals are likely to exceed these average prices. The more elaborate the design, the more you can expect to pay.
Having a mixture of dummy and real tiers will reduce the price slightly.
– single tier cakes: average between $195 – $375
– 2 tier cakes: average between $395 – $625
– 3 tier cakes: average between $625 – $850
– 4 tier cakes: average between $795 – $1135
– 5 tier cakes: average between $1135 – $1700
– 6 or more tiers: average price unavailable. Please contact for detailed pricing
We also specialize in beautifully decorated cookies for events leading up to the wedding. Examples: engagement parties, asking your dear friends to be bridesmaids, gifts for the bride, groom, wedding party, etc.
