Established in 2015, Love from lila xx is run by me, Lara, an experienced baker and perfectionist based in Camberley. I use the best ingredients available, from responsible sources, to make absolutely delicious cakes that are perfect for any celebration.
Moist, light and full of flavour, my sponges are made with responsibly sourced ingredients such as local free-range eggs, Fairtrade sugar, and real Madagascan vanilla. I don’t use any artificial flavourings, always recommend seasonal ingredients and flavours, and use organically grown edible flowers so you can be assured that there are no nasty chemicals inside. My buttercream is made with organic British butter and an unrefined icing sugar which gives it a deliciously rich and caramelly flavour that isn’t sickly sweet.
When it comes to ordering your cake from me, I aim to make the process and pricing as transparent as possible, working to your budget. Every customer receives a 'cake specification' - this acts as both your quote and cake design. This contains delivery information such as dates and addresses, as well as a breakdown of the costs so that you know what you're paying for, and how much. It also notes down flavours and cake sizes. The most important information in this document is the design section. This could be a sketch that I have produced, design inspiration in the form of photos of wedding dresses/flowers/other elements, or may also have images showing other cakes you have seen from my collection or wider on the internet. It reassures you that I have understood your brief, and it is my bible in the kitchen!
I have a 5* food hygiene rating from Surrey Heath council, have relevant public liability insurance and Love from lila xx Ltd. is a limited company, registered with Companies House.
When it comes to creating your cake, if it's not perfect, it doesn't leave my kitchen. It's as simple as that.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How much do your services cost?
The price of a cake varies greatly depending on the number of people that you need to serve, the design you pick, delivery distance etc. but for a 'typical' wedding enquiry of 75-100 people, my cakes start from £350. This then increases/decreases depending on the factors mentioned above.
Do you offer any other services?
As well as tiered cakes, I also offer cupcakes, mini cupcakes, macarons, cookies and other sweet treats. These can be made as the main 'cake' or as favours for guests.
How much notice do I need to give you?
For a simple, last minute wedding, I can work with 1 month's notice. However, for most weddings, at least 3 months is recommended.
Do you deliver?
Absolutely! I hand deliver and set up everyone one of my wedding cakes, meaning no stress for you, and a wedding cake that arrives in perfect condition!
What are the forms of payment?
I ask for 50% upfront, as a booking fee to secure your date in the diary. The remaining 50% is then required 4-6 weeks in advance or your wedding. Payments are to be made via bank transfer.

Working with Lara was completely stress free and very professional.
I requested 2 cakes, a small one for my wedding in October and a larger cake for my wedding celebration party in December. Lara provided a consultation plus tasting to discuss design ideas and flavours, this was followed by a quote breakdown and spec which was very helpful and gave me Lara’s vision. Delivery and setup on both occasions was seamless, so I had no worries on the day. Both cakes met the brief, looked amazing and tasted delicious, plus the extra touches of wooden stand and flavour menu completed the look. Also great comments from my guests. Thanks again Lara.

Wedding Cake, 2017
Love from lila xx are fantastic you will not be disappointed. We contacted Lara originally about making our wedding cake. She listened to what we had asked for and went about putting a quote together. The information that came back was fantastic not only had she given us a quote she had included pictures of what she thought we were after and was spot on. When Lara came round for the cake tasting we were expecting just a few pieces of the flavours to try not the beautiful box of cupcakes she brought with her. Nothing was too much trouble even when we ordered gluten free cupcakes to go with our wedding cake at short notice. We were really pleased with the end results and our guests loved it all. We were so impressed we have since gone on and ordered my parents' silver wedding anniversary cake, and again Lara went above and beyond. We highly recommend Love from lila xx and will certainly order again. Thank you Lara for all that you have done.Sent on 01/09/2018
