Due to the variety of complex shapes and dimensions of the hand carved novelties it is impossible to give general slice guides. However the minimum slices will be no lower than 25 slices.

When looking through the Gallery remember all prices given are based on vanilla sponge cake with jam and cream filling. All cakes are hand carved and finished. To create the finished cake sugarpaste icing is used and sometimes royal icing for piped details. Some cakes may require additional decoration of hidden supports that are not edible. For instance tiered cakes will require hidden boards beneath cakes and dowels that run through cakes as support to stop them collapsing. Also ribbons, lace, artificial flowers, diamantes and other non edible items may be used to decorate the cakes and must be removed before cutting cake.
The different available cake bases are listed below. These are not always available for novelty cakes. You will need to ask for a quotation for these fillings.
