Here at Cake Stories by Claudia our aim is not just to wow you and your guests with your unique and personalised cake but also match it, with cakes bursting full of flavour.
Using only the finest ingredients available, each of our custom designed cakes are baked to order in our home kitchen.
All our cakes are made with four layers of moist sponge cake and are then filled with three generous layers of flavoured buttercream, homemade jams or curds so each bite has a little bit of everything.
Find out more about our flavour combination here.
All our fondant finished cakes are encased in a layer of Belgian milk chocolate ganache before being covered in fondant.
All our cakes are made in an environment where nuts, peanuts, eggs, milk, soya, sesame and gluten are used. For this reason we cannot guarantee they are free from traces of these allergens.
All OUR CAKES CONTAIN GLUTEN, DAIRY AND EGGS.
WE ARE ABLE TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE CAKES FOR CUSTOMERS WITH A GLUTEN INTOLERANCE BUT NOT A GLUTEN ALLERGY AS OUR KITCHEN IS NOT A CERTIFIED
ALLERGY FREE WORKSPACE
WE DO NOT CATER FOR EGGLESS, DAIRY FREE OR VEGAN DIETS.
Each cake we create is custom designed, and the price of each cake reflects the complexity of the design, the time required to decorate, the flavours and the size of the cake.
All occasion cakes can be made to accommodate any number of servings,
and are priced per cake, with pricing starting at £55 for a 6 inch Buttercream covered cake and £65 for a Fondant covered cake.
The above starting prices do not include any designs or decorations.
For custom cakes, we recommend that you place your order at least one month in advance, depending on the level of complexity of your creation. For a custom cake on shorter notice, please contact us to discuss your options; we do our best to accommodate last-minute custom orders, but we cannot guarantee availability as we get booked up quickly.
Please get in touch with us for a more detailed quote.
We offer both standard sized cupcakes and mini cupcakes. Standard size cupcakes start at £2.50 per cupcake and a minimum order of 6 is required.
Our Mini cupcakes start at £18 per dozen.
delivery & collection
We can safely hand deliver any of our celebration cakes or your cupcakes in our local area of Eastbourne and in close surrounding areas for a small delivery fee of £10 .
For deliveries further afield and outside of Eastbourne, we invite you to contact us to let us know of your location so that we can give you an accurate delivery charge.
To ensure delivery on a required day, please contact us early to avoid disappointment.
We are happy to invite you to collect your cakes from us. All collections must be pre-arranged by time and date.
Our cakes and cupcakes come in sturdy boxes suitable for transport but they are fragile and larger sized cakes can be quite heavy. We recommend bringing a friend to help if you're not sure.
Please note that once a cake has been collected, the full responsibility for the safety of the cake is with the client. Cake Stories by Claudia cannot be held responsible for any damages thereafter.
Fondant for the foodie!
What is fondant? It’s a sugar dough that’s rolled out and draped over a buttercream or ganache iced cake which creates a porcelain-smooth finish.
It can transform a cake in to a canvas for art. Fondant cakes can be tinted any colour, pearlized, texturized, painted on, piped on, anything you can imagine. It also protects and keeps the cake moist and fresh.
It has a delicious vanilla-marshmallow taste.
Our buttercream frosting is most popular for good reason! Lovingly made with high quality butter and pure Madagascan vanilla paste.
Whisper light & naturally delicious, our creamy buttercream is the perfect complement to any cake.
