how to order your custom cake
Custom event orders require seven days notice, although more lead time is highly suggested. During our peak seasons, we are often booked several weeks in advance. We recommend reaching out as soon as you start to plan your event so we can check our availability for you. We are a small team and place an emphasis on quality over quantity to keep our creative work at a high level.
1: What size is needed?
To propose the correct size cake, we’ll need to know approximately how many guests will be attending your event.

8” serves 20 ; starts at $80.00+

Final pricing will be determined by design & flavor
2: BUTTERCREAM VS. FONDANT
Pick your cake and buttercream filling flavors from our menu. Next, decide on which style best suits your desired design - fondant covering or buttercream texture. Fondant cakes contain the exact same amount of buttercream as a “buttercream” cake, this style just has a very thin layer of fondant covering the cake. Fondant acts as a canvas for us to employ certain techniques not available to buttercream cakes - including stenciling, sculpting and hand painting. We’d be happy to steer you in the right direction if you are unsure which suits your style best.
3: Place your order
For all orders, please submit the inquiry form below and we’ll respond within 48 hours. Once your order is discussed and designed, we’ll email you an invoice for electronic payment. Payment in full is required to confirm your booking. If you’re picking up, we’ll confirm a time/date for you to visit our facility in Manayunk. If your order exceeds $150.00 and delivery is needed, we can provide a quote. (Complimentary delivery is offered to Manayunk 19127 neighbors.)

In the meantime, gather ideas of which styles you’re attracted to - are you more of a naked cake or marbled fondant kind of couple? Fresh, sugar or no flowers? How do you feel about metallics? There are so many options when it comes to cake design, so forming some strong preferences will help steer us in the right direction.
Wedding cake pricing varies depending on design, with most tiered cakes falling within the $8.00 - $10.00 per serving range. We hand deliver and set up all tiered wedding cakes (within 100 miles of Philadelphia). Our optional cake stand rental selection is available to elevate your design and display your cake as the centerpiece it deserves to be.
In addition to cake, our macarons and decorated sugar cookies make great favors or wedding party gifts.
