PICKUP / DELIVERY
Where to park?
Can I pick up my cake any day of the week?
Our days for pick up are Tuesday through Saturday. We only make exceptions for weddings and they are by scheduled delivery only. If your social event is on a Sunday or Monday, we will schedule your pick up/delivery for Saturday and your cake will keep safe in the fridge (decorations vary). See ‘How do I keep/store the cake’ below.
Do you deliver?
We deliver within 50 miles radius of our shop.
Do you set up when delivering?
Cake deliveries are inclusive of set up and styling of flowers and botanicals on the cake. Please notify us if we will be arranging flowers on-site. We need to bring special tools for this. Failure to notify us may result in subpar application or blooms not making it through the day.
Client communication with the florist is required when flowers are not provided by us. You may leave any signs or props that you’d like us to incorporate as well.

How do I keep/store the cake?
Our cakes keep very fresh in the fridge for up to seven days (decorations may vary). If you are not serving your cake on the day of pick up, store the cake in it’s box in a fridge with no strong odors (onions, garlic, etc.) and bring to room temperature one hour before cutting. Cakes are best eaten nice and soft.
How do I transport my cake?
Non-tiered cakes will be passed to you in an enclosed box on a cake board. You can safely transport them on the passenger floor with the air-conditioning on and driving slowly around the corners. Or a passenger can hold the cake on their lap for the journey. For 3 tier wedding and celebration cakes we highly advise using our delivery services. Based on availability.
How do I store leftovers of a cake?
You can easily pack the cake in an air tight container and freeze it to be enjoyed at a later date. Please make sure the cake is fully defrosted before eating and do not store longer than 30 days after the initial cut.
