Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a shop?
No. Carrie's Party Cakes is a home based bakery, and everything made here is made to order.
How far in advance do I need to order?
As I can only fit so much in a week I recommend booking as far ahead as you can. I normally suggest about 6 weeks. Dates can be booked in without knowing exactly what you want, so if you know the date of the party, but have no idea what your child is going to be into in 6 months, you can still guarantee your space. It's always worth checking if you've left it a bit late though as I may be able to squeeze you in.
Do you cater for allergies?
I can bake cakes using certain alternative ingredients such as gluten free flour, and will try my best to reduce cross contamination, but there is a risk that traces may still find their way into your cake, as such if you have a severe allergy, I wouldn't suggest my services.
I'm afraid I cannot offer dairy free.
Can you offer nut free?
I'm afraid not. Almost all my cakes are made without nuts in the recipe, however they are made in a kitchen where nuts are present, so traces may be in all my products.
Do you deliver?
In some cases I am able to deliver for a small fee. However, most of my orders are arranged for collection only. Wedding cakes are the exception to this.
