Frequently asked questions...

                 

How do I get a quote?

Please send an email with your request to info@martinashomemadecakes.com
I'm usually answering all my emails within 24 hours during weekdays (Mon-Thu). However, there are days when I'm fully occupied in the kitchen (especially just before the weekend) and don't have time to answer all my emails immediately.

Can I order via telephone?
I'm afraid I can't take any orders via telephone. Ideally you would send me an email but if you have an urgent question I can send you my phone number on request. I'd be on the phone all day if I left my number on the website and wouldn't have enough time to create all your lovely cakes.

How long in advance do I need to order my cake?
Please try and book your cake as early as possible to avoid disappointment. 

Ideally your order should be placed at least 3-4 weeks in advance, however
I might be able to accommodate you on a shorter notice.


I cannot see the cake I would like in your gallery, can I send you a picture of what I want?
Yes, you are more than welcome to email pictures, since that makes it much easier for me, to create exactly the cake you have in mind. 


What exactly are Cake Pops?
Cake pops are delicious bite-sized pieces of cake that are blended with icing, formed into balls (or any other shape) and then dipped into chocolate.


I've never had a cake pop before, what's it like?

A Cake Pop would be best described as a cake truffle with a chocolate outer shell.

Are Cake Pops fully baked?
Yes. The sponge cake used in the cake pops is fully baked. The cake is then blended with icing which creates it's doughy consistency. This is what makes the cake pops really moist and yummy.

How long do Cake Pops stay fresh?
Stored in the fridge they will stay fresh for up to 10 days.

Do you use nuts in your recipes?
Unless specified, my cakes are nut free! However they are made in a kitchen 
where nuts are used and therefore may contain traces of nuts.


How can I display the Cakes/Cake Pops at my party?
You can hire a number of different cupcake or cake pop stands. I also offer to come to your venue to set up and decorate your cake display. Price on request.
