What is the cost for Stella Pumpkin Cakes?

At Stella Pumpkin we thrive on making each cake an individual, therefore ensuring the bespoke nature of each cake is maintained.

There are many attributes that contribute to a cakes cost such as flavor choice, design, portion size and level of sugar craft detail required. With this in mind each Stella Pumpkin creation is individually priced based on the criteria supplied by you the customer, however there is many ways and variations to have a stunning Stella Pumpkin cake creation whatever your budget so please get in touch for a consultation to discuss the options further.

What flavours can I have my Stella Pumpkin cake in?

This is just about an never ending question! Flavour choice is so unique and choices really are endless, at Stella Pumpkin we will try to accompany your choice wherever possible. Our signature and most popular flavours are referenced below but these are not restricted or limited. If you have a flavour in mind that isn’t below, then we would be delighted to run samples prior to confirmation. All Stella Pumpkin cakes are covered with a thick layer of creamy Belgian chocolate ganache prior to fondant covering, this ensures a flawless finish and contemporary straight edge feel to the design as well as enhancing the cake’s flavour. Of course, if your design / taste requirement doesn’t suit our chocolate ganache, then we can use flavoured butter cream or premium marzipan in a traditional fruit cake.

Classic ‘Victoria’ Sponge

Madagascar Vanilla Sponge, with locally sourced Strawberry conserve and Madagascar Vanilla Buttercream.

Raspberry & White Chocolate

Madagascar vanilla sponge infused with fresh Scottish raspberries served with smooth Belgian white chocolate butter cream.

Red Velvet

Velvet in texture and seductive in color the red velvet has a deep taste more aligned with a chocolate cake but much lighter due to the buttermilk mixture, The Red Velvet is a perfect match with Madagascar vanilla butter cream & cream cheese frosting.

Chocolate

Succulent, Moist and made with the finest Swiss dark chocolate our chocolate sponge cake really is an ‘ALL-IN’ option, this can be enjoyed with a cookies ‘n’ cream, Smooth Peanut Butter, Rich chocolate or creamy white chocolate butter cream.

Lemon

Our Lemon sponge cake is very light and beautifully balanced, if required this can be accompanied by adding poppy seeds to enhance flavor and texture.  For the filling this sponge goes really well with our fresh Lemon zest butter cream or Sicilian Lemon and Ginger conserve.

Traditional Fruit

Traditional recipe that just tastes like Christmas with every mouthful, with its spices, dried fruit and cherries soaked for weeks in Courvoiser Cognac and recovered several times post bake along with a generous layer of premium marzipan and icing it really does leave that subtle taste of winter.

Collection or Delivery?

We recommend with every wedding cake you allow us to take care of the stress of delivering your cake to ensure it is set up perfectly. Depending on the venue distance there may be a small delivery charge, but this will be discussed at the original consultation. You are of course welcome to collect your cake, and we will ensure it is appropriately packaged. It is recommended that your cake be transported on a flat surface (not on a car seat!!).
