FAQs

When should I book?

Caked Teas runs alongside Wedding and Celebration cakes, so certain weekends can get very busy! Please enquire as far in advance as you can to avoid disappointment. Dates are subject to availability. Please allow at least 7 days for your booking.

Do you deliver?

Yes! I deliver to London and the surrounding areas. Delivery is free in the N4 area (that's where Caked HQ is!) and £10 for any North, East and Central postcodes. Check for a quote for anywhere further afield. Please note that congestion charge fees may apply at certain times.

Can I collect my order instead?

Of course! Your Caked Tea comes all packed up neatly together, so if you would rather collect from the N4 area that's absolutely fine. 

How many can you cater for?

A minimum order of 4 applies. There is no maximum order but dates and party sizes are subject to availability.  

How much food will I get?

Don't worry, you won't go hungry! Typically, each person will receive: one sandwich of each flavour, two scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream, one each of the cakes, and a selection of petit fours. There are usually some spares of each included in your order.

Can I choose the menu?

At this time, no. In the not-so-distant future I'm hoping to offer different menus and themes, but for now, it's only the classic afternoon tea available. Certain features may differ but generally you will include a range of sandwiches and cakes - usually with something chocolatey and something fruity.

Can you cater for all diets?

At the moment, sadly no. Please let me know if you have any allergies and I will do my best to accommodate. Vegetarians can also be catered for. Gluten-free or dairy-free teas are not on offer right now, but rest assured it's being worked on.

Pricing

Full payment is required to confirm your booking at least 7 days in advance of your event.

Caked Hire

What kind of crockery do you offer?

I have spent months collecting beautiful vintage crockery that is of very high quality. Some things match, most things don't. I think it adds to the vintage glamour! 

How many can you cater for?

Currently I can only cater for up to 20 if you require crockery. 

Do I really not have to do any washing up?

No! I want to make the whole process as easy and carefree as possible. Simply wipe away any large crumbs and pop everything back in the crate as carefully as you can. Caked will then come and collect it at a pre-arranged time.

What happens if I break something?

Eek! I hope not! But accidents do happen. There is a deposit included in your Caked Hire to cover against any major breakages.
