Just try to add your item to cart and choose from the available pick up/delivery dates. Deliveries have to be arranged at least 1 week in advance. Custom cake toppers also require 1 week notice to be made.

+ What if I want to change or cancel my order?

Any major changes requested within 2 days of cake due date may incur a fee.

Orders cancelled within 2 weeks of cake due date will be refunded 75% of order total.

+ How should I care for my cake?

Cakes are packaged with care to ensure minimal movement during transport. We are not responsible for any damage to your cake once it is in your hands. Keep the cake cool during transportation. We recommend resting the cake on the floor of your car with the AC on. Please keep your cake refrigerated until ready to serve.

+ Cake Cutting: Extended Height Cakes

To make cutting a tall cake easier, there is a cake board in the middle of our extended height cake to make two layers of servings. Simply cut into the cake until your knife is against the cake board, which is halfway down the height of the cake. After serving the top half of the cake, remove the board and wax paper and serve the bottom half. There will be dowels/straws that help give the cake support. Be sure to remove them before serving.
