FAQ

Where do you ship your cakes?
Our bakery is located in Fort Lauderdale/Miami, Florida. Our layer cakes, bundt cakes and cupcakes can be shipped anywhere in the U.S. and Canada. We deliver layer, birthday and specialty cakes in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade (South Florida) counties. Certain layer cakes and all specialty fondant cakes cannot be shipped.

How do you ship your cakes?
All of our gourmet cakes except those with free shipping are shipped nationwide and to Canada via FedEx. Free shipping cakes are shipped via USPS. The cakes are individually boxed in a gorgeous gift box and carefully wrapped with lots of padding. Then they are packaged in a sturdy shipping box. In fact, we take great pride in making sure that the cakes we deliver nationwide and in Canada will taste just as fresh as if you walked into our store! Layer cakes and cupcakes are shipped with dry ice.

Do I have to be home to accept delivery?
Because our cakes are perishable, it's best that you schedule delivery for a day that you'll be there to accept the shipment.

Do you offer custom cakes?
Absolutely! We can design a custom, specialty or designer cake for any occasion. Your imagination's the limit! Please note that all custom cakes are only available in the South Florida area due to the fragile nature of these cakes. If you live in South Florida and are looking for a custom wedding cake, baby shower cake or gourmet birthday cake, we can deliver to you or you can come by our shop and pick it up!

What are my icing choices?
Our signature icing for soft-frosted layer cakes is a cream cheese icing. However, depending on the type of cake, other options may be available. We also offer fondant cakes! We knead it, roll it out in sheets and lay it over the cake. Fondant offers a range of design options for wedding and specialty cakes. Most of the wedding cakes you see featured in wedding magazines are covered in fondant. It gives a smooth, flawless matte finish and can be draped, painted on and tinted, among other things. If you're planning a wedding in South Florida, we'd love to create your dream cake!

Do you offer cakes for restricted diets (fat-free, sugar-free, wheat-free)?
At this time, we do not offer sugar-free or fat-free cakes. All of our cakes normally contain wheat and dairy products and may contain nuts. Therefore, we do not recommend our traditional cakes for people with sensitivities to these ingredients.

We do offer dairy free, flourless, and vegan options for some of our cakes. Gluten Free cake options will be available in the near future.

What methods of payment are accepted?
