This is a set of Frequently Asked Questions we get asked here at Vintage Cake Fairy. If your question isn't covered here, please feel free to drop us a line on our contact page and we'll get back to you as quickly as possible!


How much notice do I need to give to place an order?

The minimum amount of notice we need is one week. If you have not given a weeks notice then it is less likely that we will be able to fill your order but please feel free to ask and we will try to help when possible. We recommend giving as much notice as possible as we often get booked up 3-6 weeks in advance. During Wedding Season and at weekends we get booked up very quickly so bookings are heavily dependent on availability. You can place your order as far in advance as you wish.

Is there a minimum order?

In money terms, no. But some products, such as cupcakes and cookies can only been ordered in set minimum quantities.

I have my own cake flavor in mind; do you do custom cake flavors?

Our cakes are made to order, so if you have a flavor in mind, let us know and we’ll do everything we can to make it for you! Our basic cake flavors are listed on our services page.

Do you bake cakes for free from and restricted diets?

Yes! Dairy Free, Vegan, Gluten Free and Wheat Free. We are fully competent in dealing with all major free from diets and allergies. AND... these are not just run of the mill, simple cakes – we can bake sparkly, fun, ‘normal’ tasting and great looking cakes for everyday or that special occasion! All of our cakes are baked in the same kitchen and although we strive do all we can to minimise the risk of cross-contamination, we cannot 100% guarantee this. Our cakes may not be suitable for those with very severe allergies, though we have baked for an endless number of ‘allergics’ without yet to encounter any problems.

Are your cakes suitable for nut allergy sufferers?

We use nuts in our kitchen so although we can exclude them from a recipe, we cannot guarantee anything to be nut free.

Are your cakes suitable for vegetarians?

Most of our cakes are suitable for vegetarians. Please do let us know if you’re a veggie and we will make double sure to leave any gelatin-based decorations off your cake.

Can you gift-wrap?

Cakes are presented in white cake boxes. We can add a coloured ribbon and a gift card for an additional £1 per box. We can also provide individual cupcake boxes, please ask for details.
