The Vanilla Pod Bakery is an award-winning luxury cake studio based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, which specialises in beautiful bespoke wedding cakes.

Established in 2009 by Pia Cato, Pia now runs the business with a fabulous small team of cake creators and enthusiasts. We love to take our couples on a wonderful cake journey, from initial consultations to creating the couple's perfect wedding cake. 

We take pride in getting to know our clients as people. We love understanding their vision for their special day, the feelings they want to evoke and the impressions they want to leave. 

Vanilla Pod Bakery

Designing a wedding cake is a unique experience and something we know is not an everyday occurrence. Over the years, we have created a way of working that ensures our couples have a relaxed, fun and special wedding cake journey. We have created a complete service covering everything to do with our couple's wedding cake. We call this our Couture Service. 

The Couture Service includes the designing and creating of the couple's beautiful bespoke wedding cake and/or dessert table, a medium size Cake Tasting Box (sent directly to the couple's home), design consultation calls, and catch consultation calls, hand delivery to the venue or location, and expert cake set up by our wonderful Cake Stylists, cake stand hire and collection, liaising with the couples wedding planner, their venue/location, their florist, and extended wedding team (if needed).

The couture service can also include wedding favours, guest bedroom gifts, extra postal tasting gifts, first anniversary cakes, birthday cakes/cupcakes for the couple's guests, grooms cake, hen party experiences, sourcing cake display props, site visits to your venue, as well as in person Tasting & Design Consultation for two in our Cheltenham cake studio or at the couples venue/location.

We strongly believe wedding cakes should be moments of pure joy and happiness from the look to the taste. An edible work of art that brings a smile at every touch point.

FAQs Tab

How many guests should our wedding cake cater for?

This is entirely your choice, though most couples cater to the exact number of guests. However, over the years, we have had couples cater, as they love having leftover wedding cake for next-day celebrations, to send to loved ones, or to nibble on after the wedding (wedding cakes can easily be frozen). Alternatively, some couples under cater as they don’t want to have any cake left over at all.

Can we talk to you before we book our wedding cake?

Of course! We would be delighted to talk to you first. We host cake consultations via telephone or Zoom and private in-person consultations. We’ll guide you through your wedding cake/dessert table options, such as size, shape, flavour, number of portions, decoration, and level of detail.

Do you offer a wedding cake price list?

It isn't easy to offer a price list per se until we can discuss what you are looking for via an initial consultation call. Our beautiful cakes and dessert tables have many variables bespoke to each couple. When pricing our cakes, we consider the number of servings, the complexity of design and style elements, and the service level a couple chooses. Sometimes a highly decorated smaller cake may take longer to create than a larger one, which will cost more.

We bake several different-sized cakes and will always try to present a few possible variations for you to choose from. However, as a guide, our wonderful wedding cake prices range between £5.00 - £45.00 per portion. With this in mind, our lovely couples tend to invest between £800 - £1,750+ for their bespoke wedding cake. Please read our blog on“How Much Should I Invest In A Wedding Cake” to learn more. But please do contact us for a quote; we would be delighted to help you on your wedding cake journey.




We are delighted you are considering booking your wedding cake with us. To secure your date, we ask you to complete a Save The Date form and pay a non-refundable deposit of £350.00 (payable by credit/debit card or BACS). The remaining balance is then due one month before your wedding dates.
