How far in advance should I order?

How much do your cakes cost?
Our cakes are all baked from scratch for each customer, and are decorated with unique and personal designs. Each cake is priced individually based on servings needed, and the level of design work you request us to do. Cakes with basic 2D theme decorations generally start at $125 for 10-12 servings, $150 for 15-20 servings, and $175 for 30-35 servings (larger cakes are of course available.) Sculpted 3D cakes start at $250.
--- >> These are just minimum starting prices. All orders will be provided with a custom quote once we know the design.
What about nuts and other allergens?
Our products do not contain nuts. I have been baking for the community for over 12 years, starting with my prior cafe, and you can order confidently, knowing that there will be no cross-contamination issues with nuts or other allergens. We also offer vegan (no eggs or dairy) or gluten-free cakes.
Do you have a retail store? Are you licensed by the Dept of Health?
Yes, you can shop safely with us! We are an A-rated, DOH-inspected and licensed bakery. Our retail shop is open Tue – Fri 12pm - 7pm, Sat/Sun 10am - 6pm. Retail cupcakes and other pastries are available Wed – Sun (for quantities over 1 dozen please order ahead.)
Do you deliver?
Single tier, 2-tier and sheet style cakes are pick up only, but sometimes we have local availability, so please inquire.
We recommend delivery of any cake 3 tiers and larger, or complex sculpted cakes. We offer delivery throughout Brooklyn, Queens, and Lower Manhattan. Delivery fees are calculated by distance.
Do I have to have fondant on my cake?
This depends on the cake design. We use fondant for most of our cake decorations, and sometimes covering a cake in fondant is necessary for a specific design. We think it helps to understand that it's a design decision, not a flavor decision. There is still buttercream inside the cake layers, and under the fondant. We use premium fondant which actually tastes good. You don't have to eat it, but it sure does make the cake look great!
