The recipe to success! How Cotton & Crumbs began…

Welcome to Cotton & Crumbs. Established in 2008 by cake designer Tracy James, we have become a widely recognised, award winning cake company specialising in creating beautiful, elegant and stylish bespoke wedding cakes, cupcakes and cookies to clients throughout the Midlands.

Having baked cakes and cookies for friends and family from a young age, Tracy soon found that baking and designing cakes was her passion in life. In 2012 Tracy’s husband joined the business and has become head baker allowing Cotton and Crumbs to provide a personal service from the kitchen of our family home. Our goal is to work collaboratively with our clients and designing what is to be the center point of the biggest day of their lives. Cotton & Crumbs are proud to have their cake designs published in many industry magazines highlighting that we are a brand that people can trust.

At Cotton & Crumbs we use only the freshest and highest quality ingredients to ensure your cake tastes delicious. We strive for our cakes to not only look fantastic but taste delicious too. We hope you feel inspired by our cake designs and we look forward to working with you to create the cake of your dreams.

No obligation consultations are held at our home where you will be able to come and view some of our display cakes and talk through your ideas. Different flavour cakes will be available for you to sample.

It would be useful to bring along samples of anything you would like incorporating into your cake design i.e. colour samples, fabric swatches, invitations etc. However this is not essential. Please contact us to arrange your consultation date and time.

To secure your booking a £100 deposit is required. The balance of your order will be due one month before your wedding. **Please note that deposits are non-refundable**.

We strongly recommend that we deliver and set up your wedding cake for you. Stacked cakes can be very fragile and it is important that they are transported and handled correctly. We will deliver your cake on the morning of your wedding and ensure that it is displayed correctly and safely.

Delivery costs will depend how far away your venue is from Sutton Coldfield. We deliver within the West Midlands, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and East Midlands. Please contact us for a quotation.
