Smaller 2 and 3 tier cakes can be picked up from our location by a trusted friend or relative. Larger cakes require special handling and may need some assembly and repair on site. These cake must be delivered and setup by our team.
Since tiered cakes are more fragile they can not be delivered by our courier company and our team takes care of this type of delivery. For this reason we can not charge our regular delivery cost. Delivery cost for Wedding cakes starts at $150.00. The average delivery takes between 3 and 4 hours from the time that we have the cake loaded, arrive to setup and return to our shop.
One of the first questions we get asked is “How much is it going to cost?” Since most people have no experience with ordering a Wedding Cake the cost may come as a surprise. To help gain a better understanding of costs I will explain what goes into making a wedding cake.
Making a cake is a time-consuming endeavour and requires a lot of skill. The design, consultations and planning can take 1 – 3 hours. Ingredients must be sourced and purchased. Baking the cakes can take up to a whole day depending on the size of the cake. A 3-tier cake will require a minimum of 6kg buttercream, that’s a lot of butter and adds to the time and cost. Decorations must be made or purchased. Assembling and stacking cakes requires skill and many hours.
Unlike home-bakers we have overheads that must be paid, insurance, rent, utilities, equipment, marketing, website, credit card processing fees and the list goes on.
We hope that this brief explanation will give a better understanding of what it means to make a custom cake.
3 Tier wedding cakes start at $785.00 but the price can vary greatly depending on the design of the cake.
Factors that determine the price: Fondant covered cakes cost more than buttercream covered cakes, fresh flowers cost less than sugar flowers, intricate piping and decorations add to the cost of the cake.
The more tiers you have the more time and skill is required to stack and build internal structure and this will add to the cost.

Our cakes are made with natural ingredients and will be hard if served straight from the refrigerator. We recommend taking your cake from the refrigerator two to four hours before serving. The time that it takes for a cake to soften depends on your ambient room temperature and the size of the product. Please do not leave baked goods in the car or in a warm area.
Some of our cakes benefit from being served with some fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream.
Because our baked goods are handmade some variation in appearance can occur. We take great pride in the products that we make and we hope that you thoroughly enjoy them.
