If you'd like your favourite Cakesmiths treats at your wedding or event, speak to your caterers about placing an order with us - we're always happy to discuss options.

Will you deliver to a festival site?
Does Natasha's Law apply to your cakes?
The majority of our cakes come pre-cut in trays designed to be displayed on counters for sale to your customers and therefore Natasha’s law doesn’t apply.
We are aware that some customers may choose to repackage our cakes for direct sale. By doing this, Natasha’s law applies. Ingredient and allergen information can be found on the label of the original packaging in which the cake was delivered.
For further information on the requirements of Natasha’s Law please go to the Food Standards Agency website: Allergen labelling changes for prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) food | Food Standards Agency
