All of Kildare Treats cakes are made to your specifications. The cost of your cake will depend on the size, flavour and level of decoration you choose, so before you make a booking you should consider the following:
What size cake should you choose?
To make this decision you need to take into account if you are serving any other food at the event.
For example, a party of 40 guests where platters of food and other treats are being served would only need a cake with around 20 servings.
The three most popular sizes are as follows:
- 6in cake typically has 8-10 servings
- 8in cake typically has 12-14 servings
- 10in cake typically has 18-22 servings
Note: A chocolate biscuit cake can be divided into more servings than listed above.
You also have the option of having a multi-tiered cake where different sized cakes are stacked on top of one another.
What flavour cake would you like?
The following would be a list of all the flavours I make starting with the most popular:
Vanilla buttercream cake, chocolate biscuit cake, chocolate fudge cake, red velvet cake, lemon buttercream cake, carrot cake, lemon & white chocolate cake, raspberry & lemon cake, chocolate-orange cake, raspberry & white chocolate cake, chocolate & coconut cake, death by chocolate cake, raspberry buttercream cake, carrot & walnut cake, rocky road cake, praline cake, chocolate praline cake, coffee cake, coffee & walnut cake, mocha cake and chocolate & caramel cake.
My cakes are normally made as three layers of sponge and two layers of filling, except for a chocolate biscuit cake.
How much decoration would you like to add to your final cake?
- A basic decoration on the top of the cake
- If you are looking for a lot of decoration to be added to your cake then you will need to add a layer of rolled fondant icing (the type of hard icing you find on a Christmas cake) in order to attach the decoration to it.

So how much will it all cost?
Since each cake that I make is designed to your own individual specifications I can’t give exact prices until I know what exactly you are looking for but roughly speaking the following prices are my most frequent quotes:
- 6in cake €25.00-€35.00
- 8in cake €35.00-€50.00
- 10in cake €45.00-€60.00
3. The cost of adding a photograph or a figure to your cake (known as cake toppers):
I make all of my cake toppers to your specification, from edible icing. Depending on the level of detail required they tend to range in price from €5-€8 each. Photographs or images can be printed onto icing for a cost of €5.
