Ordering Your Cake

Before calling or coming in to place your order, make sure you have all of the following information:

The measurements above refer to the diameter of each round cake. A single-level cake measures approximately 4-5 inches tall.

Tiered cakes available upon request! Call us to discuss pricing and design options! Or email your serving size, flavor selections, and reference photos to info@kara-kakes.com for a price quote!
