FAQ – Cakes

What kind of cakes do you make?

We make round and square layer cakes, which have 3 layers of cake separated by 2 layers of buttercream filling. We only use our homemade buttercream and do not use fondant or gum paste. We do not make sheet cakes, fondant cakes, or complicated carved or sculpted cakes.

Do you make smash cakes?

Yes, we make 4″ cakes that have 2-4 servings and are the perfect size for a child’s smash cake or first birthday cake. Smash cakes have 2 layers of cake separated by one layer of filling, and start at $15 depending on the design. Please see Baby Cakes and Birthday Cakes for options.

Please note we don’t work with fondant or gum paste, only our homemade buttercream.

Can I order a sheet cake?

No, we do not make sheet cakes. We only make round and square 3 layer cakes. Sheet cakes are typically a single layer of cake with frosting on top, so our cakes are higher quality. We do offer plain frosted layer cakes for $3.50+ per serving to supplement a 3+ tiered wedding cake.

What flavors do your cakes come in?

Lots! Please see Gourmet Layer Cakes for flavors. We use the same scratch made batters for our cakes and cupcakes.

What fillings do you have for cakes?

Layer cakes come standard with buttercream filling that can be flavored or colored free of charge. We can add custom fillings, such as fresh fruit, jam, pastry cream (custard), mousse, whipped cream, or cheesecake filling in any flavor of our cheesecake cupcakes. Custom fillings incur extra charges depending on the size of the cake.

Can I order a custom cake?

Yes! Feel free to browse through the many Anniversary or Cutting Cakes, Baby Cakes, Birthday Cakes, Grooms Cakes, and Holiday and Seasonal Cake designs on our website. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please contact us and we would be happy to work with you to create a custom cake that perfectly fits your occasion.

Can you screen print a picture, logo, or edible image on a cake?

No, we do not offer edible screen printing technology. Our talented decorators can hand pipe a custom design in buttercream with some limitations to detail.

Does coloring the frosting change the taste?

Dark or bright colored frosting that requires a lot of food color does have a slight metallic taste, and is also prone to staining teeth and clothing. We recommend white, chocolate, or pastel colored base buttercream, and saving the darker colors for details or accents. Please note we cannot change the color of naturally tinted frosting, such as chocolate or peanut butter buttercream.

What kind of frosting do you use on your cakes?

We only use our homemade buttercream and do not use fondant or gum paste. Our cake buttercream does have some vegetable shortening in it which makes it smooth and easy to decorate with, while our cupcake buttercream does not contain shortening.

Can you decorate my cake with cream cheese frosting?

Unfortunately we cannot decorate cakes with cream cheese frosting on the outside, as it is difficult to spread. We can fill your cake with cream cheese frosting free of charge, and we can also add a natural cream cheese emulsion to flavor our cake buttercream if you prefer.

Do you offer different shapes of cakes?

We only make round and square layer cakes. We do not make sheet cakes, or complicated carved or sculpted cakes.
