Q. When should I book my cake?

Answer:

There are no time restrictions as such as we are a big team and can whip up any cake in a day if need be. Having said that we prefer 2 - 3 months notice for Wedding cakes especially in our peak season which is from October to March. This is a good lead time. Some organised brides book a year and more in advance and some 2 weeks before their Wedding. Short notice orders are always accommodated.

For birthday, corporate, novelly and all other occasion cakes we prefer 2 - 4 weeks (especially during October - January). Again we do accommodate late requests but to avoid disappointment or to compromise on decorations on your cake (especially during holiday season) and for your peace of mind we advise to book in early.

Q. Can we pick up our cake?

Answer:

Yes of course you can as long as you adhere to our strict instructions. Our cakes are very fragile and works of art so we encourage extreme care and handling and to be placed on totally flat surfaces i.e. FLAT on the floor or in the boot of the vehicle - preferable an empty boot.You can pick up your cake from our showroom in Melbourne.
