CAKES TO ORDER

BY BOM BOM PATISSERIE

DELICIOUS CAKES. UNIQUELY YOURS.

Bom Bom Patisserie offers unique and delicious celebration cakes to order for all occasions.

We create every cake from scratch in our Loughborough kitchen, using skills and techniques refined from years of training, experience and experimentation.

We specialise in buttercream masked cakes which can be finished with a ganache drip.  These can be customised to your preference of size, flavour, finish, colour scheme and topping.

Gluten and dairy-free cakes are also available.

SIZES

We create round cakes that are greater in height (around 6") than a typical shop-bought cake. The diameter (width) of cake required will depend on the number of portions you require:

4" = approx. 4-8 portions
6" = approx. 10-16 portions
8" = approx. 20-30 portions
10" = approx. 36-48 portions

The lower end of the ranges above would typify dessert sized portions, whereas the upper end would be more typical of party-sized portions.

STACKED

We offer multi-tiered cakes for greater portion numbers. You can choose different flavours for each tier too.  Stacked cakes require internal reinforcement in the lower tiers to ensure the finished cake is structurally stable.

If you are unsure of how many and what size tiers you should go for, simply tell us how many people you'd like to feed via our contact form and we can make a recommendation.

FLAVOURS

Our flavours are created by combining fillings with the flavoured sponge layers as listed below.

Minor alterations to these combinations may be possible - please enquire via our contact form.

Chocolate ganache (chocolate sponge)
Chocolate orange (chocolate sponge)
Chocolate & salted caramel (chocolate sponge)
Vanilla white chocolate (vanilla sponge)
Raspberry & white chocolate (vanilla sponge)
Espresso & pecan (coffee sponge)
Strawberries & cream (vanilla sponge)
Lemon infusion (lemon sponge)
Passionfruit syrup (vanilla sponge)
Rainbow (six differently coloured vanilla sponges)

FAQ

How do I order a cake from you?

Fill out the form at the bottom of this page with your requirements, and we'll get back to you with our availability for the date you have requested.

If I request a cake on a particular date, is it guaranteed that you'll be able to provide a cake?

As all our cakes are custom made by a specially trained member of staff, we cannot always guarantee we'll be able to provide a cake on the date you have requested due to resource. Once you contact us with your details, we will check our diary, and let you know one way or the other if we can provide something.

So, how far in advance should I try to book to have a good chance of being able to get a cake from you?

Generally, the further in advance of your required date that you contact us, the greater chance you will have of that date being available. Having said that, we may already have other cakes booked a long way in advance that may clash with your required date, so availability cannot be guaranteed regardless of how far in advance you enquire. 

Do you deliver?

Yes.  We offer delivery within 5 miles of our Canal House store for £5. We can provide delivery further afield than this, subject to availability and an additional charge. Just let us know your address when you contact us using our form and we can advice on availability and cost.

How do I pay?

We require full up front payment for all orders under £100. Once the details of an order are decided, we will send through an invoice for payment.
We require payment to clear at least 3 working days prior to the required date.
If received later than this, we do reserve the right to refund the amount and (unfortunately) cancel the order.

For orders over £100, we ask for a 25% deposit to confirm the order, with the remainder due one week prior to the collection/delivery date.

I'm collecting my cake. How do I transport it?

We provide your cake in a cake box, but without a lid to ensure there is no damage to the decoration. We are happy to help you get your boxed cake to your mode of transport (we have parking nearby), and recommend you place your cake in the passenger footwell, in the boot of the car or any other flat surface. We would also recommend careful driving for the rest of your trip!

How long do the cakes keep?

As our cakes are made using fresh ingredients with no preservatives, our cakes are best enjoyed on the day of handover or delivery. However, we do guarantee our cakes for 72 hours, as long as storage guidelines are followed. You are welcome to keep our cakes longer than this, but we cannot be held responsible for their condition past our 72 hour guarantee.

How do I store my cake?

Cakes are best stored in a cool, dry place until serving. In hot weather, refrigeration is recommended, but cakes should be removed from the fridge approximately 1-2 hours before serving to allow the cake to soften. We recommend that you do not place the cake in direct sunlight or near heating sources at any time.

You give an estimate of the number of portions each cake size provides, but what size are these portions?

As an example, a 6" cake is quoted to provide 10-16 portions. This indicates that the cake would provide 10 generous portions (enough to serve on a small plate alone as a dessert) or 16 party-sized portions (suitable as a snack or to serve alongside other sweets). 

If I send you a picture of a cake I like, can you copy it?

We think our customers love our cakes because they have a unique style, which you can hopefully see from the selection of photos on our website. Further, the picture of the cake provided will have been designed and created by a talented individual who has put a lot of time and effort into developing the design (as we do!), and to copy this would be little different than plagiarising a piece of written work, which is clearly not a fair practise. This is why we don’t copy cakes from pictures.

Do you do cakes with fondant icing?

Our style of cakes uses Swiss meringue buttercream to create a smooth, sharp appearance. We do not work with fondant icing as a cake covering.

How about models made of icing to decorate a cake?

Making models from icing can take a long time. As a business, we need to ensure we cover our costs, and so we would have to charge more than we would like in order to make icing models for cakes. We prefer instead not to offer these as part of our cake decoration.
