When should I place my order? Ordering a bespoke cake means that your cake will be designed specifically for you, so in order to ensure that we can fulfil all your expectations, you should contact The English Baker as early as possible to place your order.

Lead times will vary, depending on the time of year and the complexity of the design, so the times given below are approximate.
