Information on our cakes

​​How long will cakes last & where to store them

At Suzi Humphries Cake Design 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.


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.
