What are your cakes and cupcakes made of?

I use fresh, natural ingredients in all my baked goods. I use swiss meringue buttercream to decorate and fill my cakes too, as well as to decorate my cupcakes. No fondant, sorry.

How big are the cakes and how many people will they feed?

All my cakes are three-layered and serving size depends on the size slices that are cut. Smash cakes are 6 inch rounds and serve around 6-8 people. The 9 inch cakes serve around 24 people and the two-tiered cakes serve around 35 people.

How big are the cupcakes?

All my cupcakes are mini-sized and come in a box of 30. You can pick any flavor for your box of 30 cupcakes. Frosting and sprinkles (optional) are included in the price. Handmade, custom toppers are extra.

Are there nuts in your cakes? I may have an allergy.

While some cakes do contain nuts in the ingredients, most of my cakes do not. However, I do bake in my home kitchen and there are nut and nut products in my kitchen.

Do you make gluten free, dairy free or egg free products?

Unfortunately, I do not. Sorry.

Why are there dowels in my cake?

I use food-safe wooden dowels in any tier cake to help support the weight, so that it doesnt sag or collapse on itself. As you cut into the supporting layers, simply remove the dowels and discard.

Do I need to refrigerate my cake/cupcakes after picking up?

If you are eating your cake/cupcakes the same day you pick up, there is no need to refrigerate it. You can leave it indoors, in a cool, dry room until you ready to enjoy it. All cakes/cupcakes are best eaten at room temperature throughout.

How do I store leftovers?

IF there are any leftovers, placing them in an airtight container and storing in the fridge is the best way to keep enjoying your cake/cupcakes for up to one week. Some frosted cakes and cupcakes can also be frozen if packed properly for up to one month. Just thaw and bring to room temperature before eating.

How long can I keep my cookies?

Cookies can be eaten up to 3 weeks after purchase if they are kept sealed in their packaging and stored in a cool, dry space. Cookies can be frozen (sealed) for up to a month. Thaw cookies to room temperature when ready to eat again.
