Please be sure to read all of the following information to avoid delay in processing your request. This form is used for custom cake and signature cupcake inquiries only. We specialize in wedding, glam, and abstract art cakes; please review our Instagram to get a sense of our design style and ensure it fits your needs, prior to submitting an inquiry.
Orders will be confirmed via email and payment will be requested in the form of an invoice (via PayPal). Please be prepared to answer the following questions: 1. When is the date of your event? (a minimum of 4-6 weeks is required; your date will be verified based on current bookings) 2. How many people will the cake feed? 3. Do you have any inspiration pictures or ideas for your cake? If so, please email them to email@example.com 4. Do you want fondant covered cake, or buttercream with fondant decorations? Most cakes need not be covered in fondant as we specialize in smooth buttercream with fondant decorations.
What is a custom cake? Any themed cake that is above and beyond the call of regular cake. This may include fondant pieces, abstract structures, florals, or attention to detail that is unlike your traditional bakery style cake. Bakery style cakes are only offered during promotions, unless the request meets the order minimum below.
If you are requesting a wedding cake quote, please also include the following information: 6. Are you saving the top tier? 7. What type of cake-topper will you have? 8. Will you need to rent a cake stand? (We currently do not offer this service at this time)
Order Minimum: $125
Pricing: Pricing is based on several factors, including but not limited to, level of intricacy, cake flavor, fillings, etc. Custom cakes start at $125 or $6.75 per serving, whichever is greater.
A 25% non-refundable, non-transferable retainer is required to book. However, if your pickup/delivery date is less than 4 weeks away or your order total is less than $200, the full balance is due at the time of booking. Deposits and Invoices not paid by the due date will be cancelled and your quote will be null and void.
Rush Order: A rush order is a last minute request, giving less than 15 days notice. Occasionally, we are able to accept last minute request. In this case, a rush fee starting at 25% of your order subtotal will be accessed and is based on the amount of notice given. The least amount of notice, the higher the rush fee. Less than a 1 week notice is not accepted under any circumstances.
