Placing Orders and Serving Guides



For standard party cakes and cupcakes we recommend placing your order at least one week in advance. If you plan to order a standard party cake you may place your order by phone, text or email.

For custom-designed or tiered specialty cakes, we recommend placing your order at least two weeks in advance. Most orders can be done by phone, but depending on the complexity of your cake design, we may recommend a person-to-person consultation with our cake designer.

Whenever possible, we will be happy to accommodate orders on short notice, but we cannot guarantee availability on our calendar, so place your order as soon as you can.

Servings and Pricing
There are many ways to cut a cake. From the smaller wedding serving, to the larger party serving and the much larger "I've had a long week and I feel like blowing my diet" serving, it's difficult to say exactly how many people a cake will serve. For this reason, our cakes are not always priced per serving, but based upon the complexity and size of the cake and the difficulty of the design. 

Simple, layer cakes can be found on our "cakes" page and are priced for their simplicity.


Tiered cakes will cost more than a single layer cake. Square cakes will cost more than round cakes, and so on. 


We can, of course, offer an estimate of the servings based on your event and how you wish to serve. 

All custom-designed cakes are priced individually, and in general, pricing starts at 4.50 per serving. 

Sugar flowers, sculpted figures and cake sculpting are also priced based on the complexity of the design. 


The best place to start is with a budget. Once we know your price point, we can work to create your very own custom cake that stays within that budget. 























Deposits
Specialty cake orders over $150 are not final until we receive a 50% deposit. The deposit is non-refundable if the cake is canceled within 48 hours of pick up or delivery time. You may place the deposit over the phone with a credit card or Paypal, or in person/by mail with cash, check or credit card. Credit card payments will incur a 5% service charge.

Delivery
Delivery is available, on a limited basis, for an extra fee based on the distance from our shop. Delivery within Ladera Ranch is free.
