Custom cakes start at $50, for a round 7" (serves 10-14) with a simple custom design. Tiered Cakes will start at $85.00 to serve 25 people. Decorations and custom designs will be subject to additional cost, and are priced by the amount of time that the decor takes for our talented staff to make. Upcharges for design are based on a cake by cake basis.
Custom cake prices are based on how much time it takes for us to make the decorations on the cake. Buying a cake is like buying a car: the more upgrades you add, the higher the cost. For example, 3D sculpted characters take more time then flat-art 2D characters. The larger the cake, the more number of guests it serves, the higher the cost as well.
All of our cakes are "filled," meaning our round or square cakes are torted into 4 layers of cake and are 3 layers of filling (filling is the layer in between the cake - it holds the cake together!).
Our Classic flavors are our most popular - they are indeed Classics! Classic flavors are included in our standard pricing, you can choose one (1) cake flavor and one (1) filling for cake tier. Gourmet Cake Fillings are priced additionally, as are Gourmet Cake Flavors. The additional charge for Gourmet Flavors is due to the higher cost in specialty ingredients, and in some cases, labor to produce the gourmet cake filling or cake flavor option. A full list of our flavors for cakes is available here.
Most of our fillings are buttercream based, except for our lemon curd and preserves. None of our fillings are super sweet and sugary. All of our fillings and frostings are flavorful, light in mouthfeel and scratch-made.
We use an European Buttercream on the exterior and outside presentation of most of our cakes, as a decoration or finishing element because it gives us a beautiful smooth finish that has a sheen at room temperature. It is also a great medium for design work & takes color nicely.
No, unfortunately, all of our cakes have filling in between the layers.
Gluten-free cakes, cupcakes and cookies are available. Gluten-free cakes CONTAIN TREE NUTS. Our gluten-free cakes taste like our standard cakes! Many of our clients have called one bite into our cakes just to check that they indeed are gluten-free because they cannot tell the difference! Dairy-free cakes, absolutely! Contact us for our current menu.
Our Classic flavors are our most popular - they are indeed Classics! Our devilish chocolate cake has been a standard for 10 years - I swear we have customers that would bang down the doors if we changed it! Alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling is definitely the most popular choice!
Custom cakes require at least 10 days notice and are anything beyond our Signature Cake Collection Designs. Custom Cakes start at $50, for a round 7" (serves 10-14) with a simple custom design. Tiered Cakes will start at $85.00 to serve 25 people. Decorations and custom designs will be subject to additional cost, and are priced by the amount of time that the decor takes for our talented staff to make. Upcharges for design are based on a cake by cake basis.
We strongly suggest that you start the "process" of ordering a custom cake at least 3 weeks in advance. This time will allow for the collection of information from you regarding flavors, sizing, design & budget, as well as allow ample time for our chef to price out the requested design & our staff to follow up with you. We require a deposit for all orders over $50.00.
As a custom sugar art studio, we handpaint all designs and although we do not offer photo cakes, we can copy most logos and artwork. Contact us with your ideas!
No, most of our designs are tasty, smooth and not-too-sweet BUTTERCREAM! Some designs do require fondant, but they are few and far between. Fondant is used as a decoration and finishing touch on most of our cakes!
