Ordering Your Cake
Before calling or coming in to place your order, make sure you have all of the following information:
Step 1: Cake Size
One of the first things you should consider when ordering your cake is how many people you need it to feed. You can select any size from the list below based on your event size:
4-inch: 4-6 servings
6-inch: 8-10 servings
8-inch: 12-15 servings
10-inch: 25-30 servings
12-inch: 30-35 servings
14-inch: 40-45 servings
The measurements above refer to the diameter of each round cake. A single-level cake measures approximately 4-5 inches tall.
Get an idea of what each size looks like!
Step 2: Cake Flavor
Next, you'll need to select a cake flavor:
Vanilla Chocolate Chip
Step 3: Filling
Once you have your cake size and flavor, you can move on to fillings. These are the yummy layers of goodness piped between the layers of your cake. Your filling selection will provide you with a base price for your selected cake size. Additional charges will be added on to accommodate custom decor and fresh fruit fillings.

Step 4: Frosting
You're nearly done! Now let's think about how you want you cake to look on the outside. When selecting a frosting flavor, please remember that vanilla buttercream is the only frosting that can be colored:
Fresh Whipped Cream
Step 5: Reference Photo
The final thing we need from you when placing a cake order is a reference photo. It might sound silly, but providing a reference photo at booking will save a lot of time when telling us about how you want your cake to look! Unless you are asking for a very basic design, a reference photo is required for all orders
