How do I place an order?
The best way to get hold of us is to drop Liz an email on firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can give me a call on 07834 277944.
We can then discuss all your cupcake needs and make sure we create the perfect cupcake for you!
Although we'll always try to squeeze any last minute orders in, please give us as much notice as you can to avoid disappointment.
When do I pay?
Transfer is preferred whenever possible and needs to be made in advance. Otherwise yo can pay cash on collection.
For large or complex orders, we require a 50% non-refundable deposit in advance ( full T&C here)
What size are your cupcakes?
Size does matter! We use the more generous american-sizes cupcake cases for all of our Standard Cupcakes, so you get more cupcake for your money.
Teeny Tiny Cupcakes are a perfect bitesize (approx 2in high) ,
Buttercream Rose Cakes, Naked and Drip Cakes measure 8 inches and serve 15-20 people. 6 inch cakes serve 8-12 people. These are three layers of sponge, extra tall have 4 layers of sponge.
Giant Cupcakes serve 20-25 people (approx 7in diameter, 8in high).
How long do the cupcakes last?
We want you to enjoy our cupcakes at their best, so bake each batch to order. They're best enjoyed on the day of purchase, but will keep for 3 days, sometimes longer, if stored in a cool place in an airtight container. The only trouble we've found is trying to resist!
The Giant Cupcakes and large cakes are best eaten withing 5 days.
How should I store them?
The best place to store cupcakes is in the box they come in. Keep them in a cool place, but not the fridge. They keep longer in a cake tin or tuppaware but the moisture can sometimes make he decorations wilt slightly, and the cases to peel. For any cupcake wih cream cheese frosting (such as Red Velvet, Carrot Cake and Black Bottom), store in the fridge.
Tell us more about your ingredients
We use only the finest ingredients: from local fresh free range eggs; organic flour, sugar and butter; to Fairtrade cocoa. We're also a big fan of local farmers (across Staffordshire & Shropshire) and use their fruit and vegetables whenever we can in our cupcake recipes.
Do you cater for allergies?
Although we are always very careful, we sometimes use nuts and other allergens in the Simply Scrumptious kitchen so can't guarantee that our cupcakes are 100% allergen-free. Sorry.
If you have any other dietary needs you'd like us to cater for (dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan...), please let us know and we'll see what we can do!
Can you create themed ccakes?
We're always up for a challenge and can create cupcakes for any theme including corporate events and children's parties. Corporate cupcakes with logo toppers require 7 day turnaround.
Do you bake for weddings and events?
Wedding and event consultations are available on set dates and are available online as well as face to face. Sample tasting boxes are charged at £20 + P&P. If you book your wedding cake with me, this will be deducted from the cost of your cake. We also hire out our beautiful 12-tier acrylic stand and a selection of traditional glass cake stands and wooden blocks and can organise setting up the stand and cakes on request. Please contact Liz to make an appointment or for a quote.
For large or complex orders, we require a non-refundable 50% deposit to secure the booking.
If you would like an edible photo or logo on your cakes, please give us at least a week's notice.
Do you post your cupcakes?
Our cupcakes are delicate little things and we want you to enjoy them at their best so unfortunately we don't offer a courier service. We do have postal brownies available!
