Party Cake - Buttercream Layer Cake





Whatever you’re celebrating, this elegant and fun buttercream cake is just the ticket! Choose your flavour, choose your exciting colour combo, add extras and we’ll work our magic for you.

Want to personalise your cake? Choose to add a message topper and let us know what you’d like to say. “Happy Birthday”, a name, an age, “Congratulations”, “Bride-to-be”…any short phrase will work perfectly. Simply reply to your order confirmation email and we’ll do the rest.

Size it up. Each Buttercream Party Cake is available in three sizes. Our cakes get taller rather than wider so choose your number of layers to match the number of servings. Our serving numbers are calculated in two ways, depending on how you plan to slice and serve your cake. Serving numbers are shown in brackets next to each size option:

  • classic wedge slices (the first number) for dessert servings and smaller gatherings where you want each guest to have a good chunky piece of cake
  • finger portions (the second number) for weddings, larger events and goodie bags, where each guest has a good few bites and the so cake goes much further

Need serving and slicing advice? No problem, just ask and we’ll be happy to help!

Each cake comprises layers of sponge with buttercream in between, plus jam if your chosen flavour requires it. Each cake is then covered in a smooth layer of buttercream and trimmed top and bottom with contrasting buttercream piping.

Want sprinkles? Cherries? No problem! If you’re ordering one of our pistachio options and you’d like your cake extra nutty, simply order it with cherries and sprinkles and we’ll sub these out for whole and crushed pistachios. Check out the pistachio cake in the photo gallery for an example.

And for a vintage twist… we’ve added the option to have vintage buttercream piping around the sides of your cake. It’s a gorgeous extra detail that works well with or without sprinkles, and in same-on-same or contrasting colour combos. Small and Medium cakes will have one string of vintage piping around the sides. Large cakes will have two strings of vintage piping around the sides.

Design your perfect cake, have fun!

Your cake can be collected from the shop (Tuesday to Saturday 10-5) or can be delivered locally (Tuesday to Saturday evenings). At checkout, please let us know the date and time of the party in the Notes section so that we can plan everything in.
