Information on our cakes
How long will cakes last & where to store them
At Cupcakemama everything is baked from scratch and contains no preservatives, so remember, it's a cake and it wants you to eat it while its still fresh and delicious! As a guide, all our cupcakes have a shelf life of approximately 3/4 days from the day you receive them, and our cakes around a week. The only exception to this is our fruitcake, which will last for several months, if stored correctly. Our cupcakes are best eaten the same day you receive them and are happy to be stored in the box you receive them in or an in air-tight container.
Please note that cakes really don't enjoy being stored in the fridge, as this will cause them to dry out and any sugarpaste work to sweat.
We do offer Gluten free cakes and cupcakes.
Although we can use replacement products such as Gluten free flour etc to make our cakes, we are unable to guarantee that are cakes are suitable for all allergy sufferers due to the fact cakes are prepared in the same kitchen.
Consultations and Tastings
We only offer consultations for our wedding customers and they are by appointment only.
Cupcakes are priced from £3 upwards, depending on the complexity of the design and flavour.
There is a minimum order of 12 per flavour and a minimum order of 24 for our baby cakes.
