Anyone except Waitrose and M&S do personalised cakes?

Need it with relatively short notice (for mid July) for dd's Christening, but can't find exactly what I want on their sites for the fruit version (planning to have unpersonalised chocolate and madeira from them, but with a personalised fruit in the middle).

Any suggestions?

Sainsburys and Tescos do photo cakes?

Oh I didn't know that, but am after one iced with her name and Christening date, so wouldn't work for this occasion I guess.

do you have a Cooplands nearby - they personalise cakes. I could pipe a name a nd date if you are near Sheffield...

Heidi's Swiss Patisserie did our DDs christening cake at very short notice and it was beautiful!

(They are a national chain of bakeries)

you can print off a photo with a caption and i know asda will do it - it was £10 2 years ago.

What exactly do you mean by personalised, would this do? - Asda do photo cakes - you can have a photo scanned onto the cake - no need to order you just go in and get it. I did one for a birthday pary - you could put together a picture with a caption on your PC, they literally just scan whatever you have onto edible icing paper. Another supermarket does it too but I can't remember which one.

Sorry luckylady we xposted - great minds hey!!"

No Cooplands or Heidi's anywhere near us (North Herts), but thanks for suggestions.

I guess what I'm after is something like the middle top row of this page, but in fruit rather than madeira.

I do so much shopping online that I don't even think to go to local bakeries (although being in the middle of nowhere, no bakery is exactly local). Expect I could find one if I looked about though.

You are at least all confirming what I thought, in that M&S and Waitrose are the only 2 national companies that I can order from online.

our local bakeries do too

CSWS - there is a tiny shop in our nearby town that just does that kind of thing (and personalised sweets, I think). It is in a side street near the church, a few shops down from a CD shop, purple outside. Going to walk by this morning (rain permitting) so I'll check out the name.

Haven't used them myself, so no idea if they're any good.

it is these people

Thanks MM. I e-mailed one local place that I found on last night, but haven't heard back, so other suggestions would still be appreciated.

CantSleepWontSleep Mon 25-Jun-07 12:25:08

Ooh - cross posted - will take a look now.

Sainsburys at London Conley do birthday cakes you can even have a photo on the cake.

If you want something like that, why not do it yourself? It's much easier than it looks, honestly!

CantSleepWontSleep Tue 26-Jun-07 22:25:35

Popped to see them today Muffin - as long as I order by the weekend they'll do it, so have been googling for designs all night! Thanks for the suggestion.
