HOW AND WHERE ARE FLOUR PATISSERIE CUPCAKES AND CAKES MADE?
All orders are baked and decorated fresh and to order at our bakery in the Central market in St Helier. We use only the very best ingredients available, including free range eggs, Jersey Milk and Butter, Callebaut chocolate, all-natural fruits, spices and other flavourings, including organic Madagascan vanilla. We do not operate a production line or use industrial machinery; all our cupcakes are freshly baked each day in small batches and iced one order at a time. It takes longer but they taste better.
HOW LONG WILL MY CAKES STAY FRESH FOR?
All our products are made without artificial preservatives and we always recommend eating them on the day to enjoy them at their best. Depending on your needs you may want to get your cakes a day before you plan to serve them, and that's fine too - just store in their boxes at room temperature, or in the fridge if the weather is very warm.
When storing cake in the fridge always allow it to come to room temperature before serving - please note that for large cakes this can take several hours. In the (unlikely) event you find that you have cupcakes left over they’ll stay fresh for a day or so in their box, or an additional day in an airtight container. It is possible to freeze our cakes but we recommend storing them in an airtight container in your freezer between -18 and -22 degrees Celsius for no longer than 1 month. They are best defrosted in the fridge overnight.
WHAT SIZE ARE YOUR CUPCAKES?
Our Big Cupcakes are standard cupcake size, about 2.5" diameter and our mini cupcakes are 1.5" in diameter. Big Cupcakes give about 4-5 bites and minis are bite-sized.
WHAT SIZE ARE YOUR CAKES?
Our Cakes are available in 4", 6”, 8”, 10” & 12" diameter and are approx 6”-7" high depending on flavour and decoration. A 4" cake provides 4-6 generous servings; 6” cakes serve 12-14, 8” cakes serve 22-24, 10” 34-36 and 12" 48-50.
DO YOU MAKE GLUTEN FREE AND VEGAN CUPCAKES?
Yes - we feature both Vegan and Gluten Free flavours every day in our Central market shop, and we have a selection available to order. We also currently offer a small range of cupcakes and cakes that are both gluten free and vegan.
HOW/WHERE DO YOU DELIVER?
All our cakes and cupcakes need to be hand delivered as they are freshly baked and fragile. We offer a door to door delivery service all over Jersey. It is also possible to collect our cakes and cupcakes from our shop in St. Helier. We will advise you no how best to travel with and store baked goods.
HOW FAR AHEAD SHOULD I ORDER?
We recommend ordering Cupcakes a minimum of two days in advance and Cakes three days in advance, but we do get very busy so it’s worth allowing more time if you can. This is especially true for very large orders and orders involving lots of bespoke decoration. For weddings and other large orders it is advisable to give us as much notice as possible. Larger cakes, especially bespoke cakes, require more notice and we recommend giving at least two weeks’ notice or more if possible.
We will always try to accommodate last-minute orders whenever we can; if you have a cake or cupcake emergency and need an urgent order please call us on 01534 877501 and we'll do our very best to help.
WHAT IF I NEED TO AMEND OR CANCEL MY ORDER?
If you need to change the date or details of your order or cancel it altogether please contact us as far in advance as possible. We will always be as accommodating as we can if you need to change or postpone an order but please bear in mind that we may have had to turn away other customers to fulfil your booking for a particular date so changes are not always possible. Please note that we do not offer refunds on any of our baked goods unless they are damaged by us or if you received an incorrect item.
