1. Are your cakes homemade? And when do I need to place my order?
Our cakes are baked in our on-premise kitchen, frosted with our own made-from-scratch butter cream,! We bake in small batches as we have orders, and because we cannot bake every day, It is best to order AT LEAST a week in advance to make sure we have a spot available for your order, but you can always call and ask! We always tell folks...the earlier you order, the better it is! We offer deliciously simple dessert cakes, and, with enough notice, custom decorated theme cakes for most any occasion. We still offer the most moist, best tasting cakes anywhere in the Delta! What you get is a cake that will bring you back time after time.
2. How much do your cakes run?
Our cake prices depend on the size cake you need and how it's decorated....which is dictated by the number of people you wish to serve. Because we need to sketch your cake idea or see a picture of a similar design, we do not quote over the phone. You can send pictures to our email along with the date you need the cake, number of servings, name and any info you want on the cake, with your name and contact information, and we will gladly sketch a cake design for you and send back with a quote.
We will normally give you a range of servings for each size cake. For example, an 8 inch round two layer cake will serve from 12-24, depending on the size of your slices. So if you wish to serve 10, an 8 inch round is more than adequate. But if you want to serve 20, you may wish to go to the next larger size to make sure you have enough servings. A standard wedding size slice is considered to be 1” x 2” x 4”, OR on a single layer sheet cake, 2” x 2” squares.
Once we know your date to make sure we are available, the size you need, and how you wish it to be decorated, we can then give you a price. We no longer cover cakes in fondant or create 3-D sculpted cakes, but we do still use fondant for letters, numbers, shapes and designs. And if you bring the toy or topper, we can decorate your cake to make it fit the theme! Overall, our cake prices should make you happy!
3. What shapes do you bake?
We bake in round, square or rectangular quarter and half sheet cakes. We do not bake in shaped number pans, nor do we sculpt shapes from a cake. Those then require being covered in fondant, which we no longer do. The largest sheet cake we do is a half sheet. A single layer half sheet will feed up to 50, a double layer half sheet will feed up to 100, if cut properly.
4. What flavors do you offer?
Our Sweetery Vanilla is our #1 choice! We also offer Chocolate, Strawberry, Lemon, and Red Velvet. Premium flavors are offered for an additional cost per serving: Color-Dyed Vanilla Cake, Two-Flavor Swirl, Cookies N Cream, Snickerdoodle, Hummingbird, Vanilla Bean, Italian Crème, Pecan Cream Cheese, Caramel Flavor, Chocolate Mint, German Chocolate and Coconut. Not all cake flavors will work for a decorated cake.
5. Do you deliver?
Because we have an extremely small staff, we only deliver and set up wedding cakes locally in Cleveland. We offer no other type delivery, in or out of town.
6. When do I pay?
NO DATE IS RESERVED and no order is placed until a minimum 50% retainer/deposit is made. The balance is due 3 days before pick-up for regular cake, 2 weeks in advance for wedding cakes.
NOTE: Sales tax is included in our pricing!
