Ordering

Little Elephant cakes are individually designed and tailor made to suit the themes of your event or celebration. Starting with your ideas and inspiration, we will work with you to come up with a design and create a bespoke centrepiece for you.

To get in touch, fill out our contact us form to give us a few details about your event and your requirements, or send us an email veera@littleelephantcakeco.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

 

When to Order

The best time to enquire about your cake is as soon as you know when your event is! We would recommend at least 2 months notice for wedding cakes, but the earlier the better, as we tend to get booked up early, especially in wedding season. 

We only take on limited orders to enable us to give each piece our full attention so ordering in advanced is advised, but sometimes we can’t say no to a good idea! So if it is last minute we can’t promise, but do get in touch.

 

Consultations

For weddings we would recommend that you come along for a consultation, which are held at our home. This gives us the opportunity to meet in person and talk through the themes of your wedding and cake ideas. Bring along anything that you love or you want to be incorporated and we’ll work to design the cake of your dreams.

At your consultation you can also sample our delicious cakes! We will provide a selection of flavours for you to try, alternatively if you have any flavours in mind then let us know.

 

Payment

A £50 deposit will secure your date and order, with the balance due a month before your event. Deposits are non-refundable and short notice orders require the full amount to be paid when the order is placed.

 

Delivery

We are based in Sunderland and are able to deliver wedding cakes throughout the north east. For weddings outside the north east, unfortunately we can not offer delivery but wedding cakes can be ordered for collection. Please note that extra charges may apply for delivery and set up.
