Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Business Update:

Like so many other small businesses - Jessica Lauren Cakes has been faced with challenges and loss of income due to the Covid-19 global pandemic. When the UK went into Lockdown on the 24th March I was forced to temporarily close for orders. This was due to all of my orders being cancelled / postponed and lack of available ingredients and supplies. As a home based business I didn't want to reopen until I could find a way to do so safely. I am pleased to now have been able to reopen for orders with a limited range of cakes and cupcake gift boxes available to order for safe contact free deliveries and collections. This range is available within a 5 mile radius of Berkhamsted only for the time being - I plan to add to this as and when ingredients and supplies become more widely available again and when it is safe to travel further.

Celebrations and special occasions are likely to be scaled back throughout the remainder of 2020 but that doesn't mean you can't still celebrate with cake. I would love to make your home based occasions as special and delicious as possible with cakes and sweet treats. I will be following all of the government's guidelines on safe working and social distancing, as a one woman business it is easy for me to socially distance while working - I bake and decorate all of the cakes and deliver them myself. All deliveries and collections will be contactless - either delivered safely to your doorstop or collected from outside my home based studio. As a food business I already have extremely high hygiene standards. All payments will also need to be contactless and made online prior to delivery and/or collections.

All of my existing orders for Weddings and Celebrations that were booked prior to the COVID-19 outbreak have been rescheduled up until September 2020. If you have a cake booked with me beyond September 2020 that you would like to reschedule please get in contact ASAP to ensure I am available for your rescheduled Wedding or event in 2021.

I am still taking bookings for 2021 Weddings. For the time being I am unable to hold in person consultations at my home based studio. While Royal Mail is overloaded and there are postal delays I have paused doing cake sample boxes. I plan to resume this service as soon as it can be done again with speedy 1st class delivery. If you are interested in ordering a wedding cake tasting box then please email me to be put on the list for the first round of tasting boxes once this service is resumed.

I can still do custom orders during this time but plenty of notice will be required due to lack of available ingredients and delays in my supply chains. 

Your orders mean the world to me to keep my small business afloat during this difficult, strange and unprecedented situation.

Thank you so much for your support and understanding!
