Cake FAQ

Everything you wanna know about cake...

No, lovely, we do not.  We are a unique bakery unicorn as we are strictly a custom cake and sweets studio.  Everything we do is made to order. We do not have a showroom open to the public, so as much as we'd love to have you pop over for a chat, I'm afraid we will be up to our elbows making cakes, and unavailable to spend time with you.

At least one Saturday per month we schedule one on one tastings and consultations. You will be spoiled as you sample all ten of our flavors while sipping champagne and fresh coffee in our artistic studio. While listening to jazz, we will explore which flavors you love the most and sketch your cake for you on the spot. Bring your honey, mom, planner, whoever you like - up to 4 people. The cost is $50. Additional guests $20 each.

In normal times we book as early as a year in advance.  In simplest terms, we are first come, first served.  Once you secure your contract, you are in the books!  We are a very small team, and have a very limited volume of cakes we can create and deliver per week.   Our advice is to give us a call as soon as you know your event date.  All that said, if you call us five days in advance in need of a cake, we will absolutely do it for you if we have the availability.  If no overtime or extra costs are incurred, we do not charge rush fees.

If you see a cake in one of our galleries that you love, just call the office, or email us for a quote and tell us all the details about the event.  We'll whip up a contract for you and secure the date with a 50% deposit.  If you are in need of a custom design, please fill out the contact form on our website and tell us everything you can about your event, and include inspiration images.  We will contact you to discuss design ideas.  We know that having cake tastings are a fun part of the process, but if one isn't convenient to your schedule, many clients book us without a tasting.

Custom cakes do generally get a sketch.  Usually this happens after you have tried the cake and are seriously considering booking us for your event.  Please note that we generally don't do sketches of realistic recreations of 'things' cars.  The cake will look just like the Ferrari you sent us a photo of! :)

Most wedding cakes are two flavors.  We allocate the flavors across the tiers to achieve about a 50/50 ratio of each flavor.  This way, your guests can have a variety!  We do not charge more or less depending on which flavor(s) you choose. Price supplements occur for more than two flavors, or if the cake is vegan or gluten free.   Small two tier cakes are generally one flavor.

Schedule permitting, we sure do! We can either provide boxed desserts for set up by you or your catering staff, or we can provide full-service dessert bar design, set up and equipment rental.  All of our dessert bars are custom.  There is no pre-set price per person Minimums apply.

Pick up, Delivery & shipping

Now the cake is ready, how do we get it into your mouth.

Oh, man, we wish we could!  Sorry, we don't want you to end up with a box of crumbs.  All of our cakes are for delivery within an 8 hour driving distance from LA.  We do travel for special destination events.  Have plane, will travel!

You sure can!  Once you leave our studio, the cake is 100% your responsibility.  

99% of our cakes are delivered.  Most folks don't want the stress of carrying and driving large cakes through the streets of Southern California!  We have you covered.  Our cakes are delivered in Big Daddy, our refrigerated van.  Anyone delivering the cake is also equipped with a Whoopsie Kit.  You know, just in case.  Delivery is an additional charge.  Call for a quote.
