I’ve Got The Answers
How far in advance do I need to place an order for my cake?
As soon as HE puts the RING on YOUR finger girl! LOL
I would usually recommend a minimum of six months from the date of your wedding
but the more notice you give, the more time we’ll have to plan your dream wedding cake.
However, I have been known to whip up beautiful wedding cakes in under a week, so give me a call no matter the time & I will do my best.
Fondant decorated celebration cakes should be booked 1-2 weeks from the date of your occasion.
Buttercream cakes & cupcakes should be booked 4-5 days from the date of your occasion.
Please see my Terms & Conditions for more information on booking & payment terms.
How much do your cakes cost?
All my cake prices vary greatly depending on the cake size, the number of tiers,
the intricacy of design & other elements such as the inclusion of sugar flowers or other fondant decorations. However, all designs will be quoted before production begins so there are no surprises.
Please see my pricing page for the price guide or call me for an accurate quotation.
Do you bake your cakes from scratch?
Yes, I bake all my cakes fresh for each order using only the highest quality branded ingredients.
I bake each one from scratch, no packet mixes, pre-prepared ingredients, artificial enhancers.
Can I have a cake sample?
I offer cake tasting appointment for wedding cakes & large custom cakes(maximum of three people), during which you may try up to three flavours of cake with filling (previously chosen by you or recommended by me).
If an order is yet to be placed, this appointment is charged at NGN10, 000 which will then be deducted from your deposit if you go ahead and place an order.
If an order has been placed and deposit paid, then this is offered free of charge. By all means contact me on 08086801464 or Click here to book for an appointment.
I have seen a cake I like online, will you copy it for me?
I can definitely use it as an inspiration!
I will take the design elements that you love & customize it for you but I won’t copy it exactly as the designs belong to the original cake designer.
All my cakes are unique to Nookies Boutique Cakes & I do work best with creative freedom. I am happy to discuss your design at the cake tasting/ consultation appointment.
It’s much nicer having something that’s uniquely made for you anyway, isn’t it?
Can I decorate my wedding cake with fresh flowers?
If your wedding cake is to be decorated with fresh flowers, it is best for your florist to supply these as this allows for continuity.
I can liaise directly with your florist regarding the floral decorations required for your cake but please ensure you have ordered these in advance. I can suggest some florists if this is required, kindly contact me.
NB: Some flowers are not suitable for use as a cake decoration. Ask your florist for details and advice on the toxicity.
I cannot be liable for any contamination to your wedding cake that may arise from the misuse of fresh flowers.
Can I choose a mix of flavours for my wedding cake?
Yes, of course. Any cake with multiple tiers can have different flavours for each tier although I do ask that you choose a maximum of three different flavours per tier. See the list of all my flavours.
Will you deliver my cake?
Delivery charges are free for wedding cakes (Within Lagos Only)
You can relax in the lead up to your wedding day knowing you’re in safe hands. I will personally deliver your wedding cake making sure its properly setup & looking it’s absolute best.
Your wedding cake may also be collected from my studio if you wish the day prior to or the morning of your wedding (For Outside Lagos Residence). If the cake is collected, I will not accept responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur after the cake has left my kitchen.
Quotes for celebration cakes are generally based on collection but delivery can be arranged if preferred. However, this is a chargeable service, please see the pricing page for further info.
How do I store my cakes?
Since my cakes are made with fresh ingredients such as milk & fruits, I recommend storing them well wrapped in the freezer. Allow the cakes to come to room temperature before eating & enjoy anytime.
