Why do you freeze tiered cakes?
We freeze tiered cakes the morning of your pick up to make sure it stays intact during transport, please allow 3-4 hours for your tiered cake to be completely thawed out before eating. The cakes are completely fresh and we freeze it so the frosting does not melt, or get damaged during transit.

Please email us to request any colour changes on large cakes to discuss options (please leave enough time to allow ordering timeframes).

Yes. We can fit a maximum of four words on our cakes. These are written in frosting, and are not sugar free or fructose friendly. We do not use plaques, but pipe the message directly onto the cake or cake board (determined by the baking team based on where it best fits). Cake messages are free of charge.
Can I have a plaque on the cake?
No, sorry. We do not use plaques, but instead frost messages and images onto our cakes by hand.
