Let's face it. A nice creamy chocolate cake, does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me.
To assist with budgeting for your big day, the following is a basic guide to the cost of your cake. Bear in mind that each cake is bespoke and will therefore be individually priced according to the design you choose.
The following guide is based on simply decorated fondant finished cake 3" high and will include a s simple flower arrangment or similar decoration and ribbons to finish.
Two tier cakes start from £300 for a 6" and 9" round cake
Three tier cakes start from £400 for a 6", 8", 10" round cake
Four tier cakes start from £500 for a 4", 6", 8", 10" round cake
Large four tier start from £600 for a 6", 8", 10", 12" round cake
Five tier cakes start from £650 for a 4", 6", 8", 10", 12" round cake
We can of course offer more complex designs and the following will add to the cost of your basic cake

Everyone loves a piece of wedding cake
Sponge cake is usually served in 2" portions, but fruit cake is served in smaller 1" portions, so whilst the cost of a fruit cake might be a little more expensive, it will serve more people.
To calculate the amount of cake you need, you will need to know how many guests you are serving and which combination of cake flavours you would like.
For informal weddings or a smaller guest list, consider making your cake look bigger than it really is. We can use columns, props or designs creatively to raise the height or depth of your cake. Alternatively, you may like to consider individual 2” cakes for each person.
If you have a large guest list, but would prefer a simple elegant cake, we can provide a cutting cake which is not on display, but can be cut out of sight and served to your guests, who will be none the wiser..
Design and Consultation Service
Design and Consultation Service
We offer a free initial consultation service.
Bear in mind that popular dates in the year are often booked up very quickly. At Ruthann's Cakebox, we offer a bespoke service to our clients and therefore, we have a limit to the number of cakes we are able to make each week.
We highly recommend getting in touch around 12 months prior to your wedding date, so that we can reserve the date for you. At this time, we can discuss the size and style of your cake and we will provide you with an estimated cost. You can then secure your booking with a £100 deposit.
Closer to the date of your big day, we will meet to discuss the final design and arrange a selection of tasters for you. We charge £30 for this service which includes 3 flavours of your choice along with a selection of flavoured fillings. If you subsequently place your order with us, the £30 will be deducted from the cost of your cake. If you would like to try more than 3 flavours, the cost is £5 per additional cake.
After choosing your cake flavours and finalizing your design, we will prepare a final proposal confirming your order, the total cost and the delivery details
We will continue to be available at all times, should you have any queries or minor adjustments along the way.
