How does ASDA Photo Cake work?

Step by step instructions are provided on the kiosk, but here is a quick overview of what to do -

  1. At the kiosk, upload a photo from your phone, usb stick or scan a printed photo.  If you don't have a photo, choose one of the designs that are ready to go.
  2. Select a frame for your photo (optional)
  3. Add a personal message - you can change the font, colour and outline to suit your design
  4. Finish your order - a receipt will be printed with the order number
  5. Select a cake from beside the kiosk and bring it to the bakery counter where a colleague will print your order and put it on the cake while you wait.
How long does it take to make a photo cake at ASDA?

Copyright Guidelines

When designing your cake topper on the kiosk, you will need to agree to the following disclaimer: 

"Please note that you must only use an image that is appropriate, lawful and does not infringe the rights of others.

This includes only using an image that was created by you, or where you have the right or permission from the copyright owner to copy it as icing on a cake.

Can I buy just a cake topper on it's own?  Do I have to buy the cake?

ASDA sells the cake and cake topper as a single product.  They don't sell cake toppers without the cake.  If you just want the cake topper you can use our online cake topper service.  Design and order your cake topper through our website and we'll post it out to you.
