Easter weekend is a significant milestone towards the ‘summer season’ of celebrating Holy Communion, also known as the Eucharist, with ceremonies typically taking place in the greatest numbers throughout May and June.
Maundy Thursday, just before Easter weekend itself, is the ‘anniversary’ of the Last Supper, when the tradition of the Eucharist began, and its name comes from the Latin ‘mandatum’ which means ‘commandment’, as in Jesus’ instruction: “A new commandment I give to you.”
Of course, Easter moves around depending on the phases of the moon, and was unusually early in 2016, but that leaves us with time to take any remaining orders for Holy Communion cakes in time for delivery in May or June.
We cater for all sizes of order, from a basic family-sized cake or selection of cupcakes, right up to multi-tiered Communion cakes similar in shape and structure to a wedding cake – we need at least two weeks’ notice no matter what type of cake you want, so place your orders in April if possible.
All of our Communion cakes are based on our standard cake sizes, ranging from a 7-inch round cake suitable for up to eight people, to 12-inch rounds, and from a 7 x 10 inch oblong for 12-16 people right up to our 24 x 24 inch ‘giant’ square cake for 80 or more servings.
We’re happy to work to a specific design, so if you have a photograph of a cake you’ve seen elsewhere, or a particular design you want to feature in your decoration, just let us know and we will do our best to replicate it.
Cupcake prices start from £1.50 each, usually a minimum of 12 per order, and cakes start at £25 but we will give you an exact price when you place your enquiry – we can sometimes produce a cake faster than the two-week notice period mentioned above, but we do get fully booked in May and June, so give us as much warning as you can.
