What’s included in the cake decoration pricing?

A festive message and sprinkles are included in the starting price of each cake. You may also choose from a variety of included buttercream textures, such as ripple, rustic, or rosettes.

Additional design features such as buttercream flowers, fondant, intricate piping, figures, etc. will add to the cost of your cake.

Can you replicate a cake I found on Pinterest, Instagram, etc.?

If you find an image of a cake made elsewhere we can definitely use it to inspire your cake design. Please note, however, that we do not make exact replicas of existing cake designs.

Other great places to find inspiration for your cake include party theme/colours, invitations, linens, etc.

What if I want a custom designed cake?

We are happy to discuss your cake design vision and ideas! Custom cake designs are priced based on the amount of time and materials needed to create your vision.

Please Contact Us to check availability, get a quote or for more information.

How do I store my cake and cupcakes?

Buttercream or ganache cakes can be stored in original packaging at room temperature for 3-4 days. If your home is warm and/or humid, store the cake in the refrigerator. Cakes frosted with whipped cream, cream cheese or mascarpone frosting, or containing any type of custard or fruit filling must always be stored in the refrigerator.

For best flavour and texture, let your cake rest at room temperature for a few hours before serving. Larger cakes may need additional time to warm up.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If your cake or cupcakes are covered in fondant or have any fondant decorations, DO NOT refrigerate or freeze. Store the cake at room temperature in original packaging. Once the cake has been cut, you can cover and refrigerate it according to the directions below.

Storing Leftover Cake:

If you happen to have leftover cake (we don’t understand people like you!), simply cover all of the exposed areas of the cake in plastic wrap. Then, store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 4 days (from the date of purchase). You can also tightly wrap the entire cake in a layer of plastic wrap, followed by a layer of aluminum foil, and store in the freezer for up to 1 month.
