"...What we do"
Based in the North Yorkshire countryside, in between Thirsk and Northallerton, The Flamingo Bakery creates luxury wedding cakes and favours all tailor-made to suit your special day. We cover a wide area including the whole of Yorkshire so our lovely rural location is only our base during the week. We offer a variety of unique flavours to choose from, all of which can be found on our 'Flavours' page and we use fresh, local ingredients wherever possible to ensure that all our cakes will not only look amazing but taste delicious too. To achieve this we have teamed up with a local preserve supplier to offer you a selection of Yorkshire jams and curds, which are free from artificial ingredients. We also only use both free range milk and eggs in all our cakes to ensure a better life for the animals providing our delicious ingredients. We are also proud to have a lovely selection of gluten-free flavours & halal options to enable everyone to have a piece of cake.
We're also delighted to be a recommended supplier to Grantley Hall in Ripon, Swinton Park in Masham, Newburgh Priory in York, Aldwalk Manor in York, Allerton Castle near Knaresborough, Thief Hall in Northallerton and The Crown Hotel in Harrogate. Contact us today and let us make your day extra special.
"...PLACING YOUR ORDER"
We recommend you enquire about your cake as early as possible, placing your order at least 3-9 months in advance, wherever possible but it is always worth checking your date with us just incase. All orders require a non-refundable 30% deposit to secure the date in our diary. We also offer Taster Kits and Consultations for those wanting to try our cake flavours and meet us before the big day. More details of which can be found on our 'Appointments' page.
We also offer a full delivery and set up service for all our cakes, which is charged at a set price per mile, however cakes can also be collected if preferred. The outstanding balance for any wedding cakes/favours is due 14 days before delivery/collection. As all our cakes our bespoke, each design is priced individually but for an idea of cost, please visit our 'Prices and Flavours' page.
