Pricing & Costs
- Simply Alpa is based on creating cakes that are unique and personal to the couples they are created for. Alpa will sit down with you at a consultation to go through the design whilst offering a tasting of flavours. Ideas taken from the couples wedding theme, dress, invitations or venue can help create a cake that will fit the special day perfectly. Only one cake is made at a time allowing time to focus on the detail which can include hand painting with cocoa butter which is a big trend currently. Sugar flowers are also popular and piped lace work. If you are looking for a sculpted or novelty style cake I am probably not the person to contact. My specialist skills lie in paintwork, piping and sugar flowers. I also offer to make decorated cookies or cupcakes which can be given out as favours or put alongside the main cake. I offer to deliver and set up the cake on the day to make sure everything is perfect for your day.
