If you are thinking about inquiring on an order, and are unsure about the process, please refer to the following rules, tips and FAQ's.
ALL orders require a 50% deposit to reserve a slot in the calendar. You may make your deposit in person or online banking. The deposit will be applied to the cost or your cake at the time of pickup.
There are NO REFUNDS on deposits.
*Payment balance is required at the time you pick up a cake.
*All details (design, cake size, etc.) for your cake order must be finalized within 72 hours of the date that your cake is needed.
*Due to the high amount of labor involved in creating custom cakes, we are unable to accept cancellations after two weeks prior to pick up.
Picking Up Your Cake
Keep this in mind when picking up your custom cake:
• During hot months, your vehicle MUST be air conditioned.
• Please have a large, FLAT area available to transport the cake. Transporting on a soft, angled car seat can crack the frosting due to bouncing and bending the cake board.
• 3-D and tiered cakes are especially fragile for transport and REQUIRE a flat surface. Most commonly, a good space is in the trunk or on the floor in the front seat.
• When using any cake stands, cake toppers or figurines borrowed from Lipstick Baker you will need to leave a deposit for the value of the item. THE CLIENT IS EXPECTED TO RETURN the equipment to Lipstick Baker within the agreed time frame or the deposit will be kept and the item will be replaced.
Fee based on where its going! $2 per km.
How much does a custom cake cost?
Prices depend on two factors. How many you would like to feed, and the difficulty of design!.
To give you an idea. buttercream cakes start at $6 a serving and fondant cakes at $7 a serving!
How much time in advance do you need?
Currently, two weeks notice is required to put your order in (pending available spots)! Don't be shy to inquire about a last minute cake, ill let you know if it is doable for the week you wanted it for!
Are you peanut free/gluten free?
Although my cakes don't contain any traces of nuts. Nuts are used on occasion, in the kitchen per the request of other customers. As much as i would like to think I take every precaution.. And to this day, haven't had any problems. A beautiful human life is not worth a slice of cake!
Although i offer gluten free/dairy free cakes. It is not recommended for persons with celiac disease. Again, as much as i take every precaution, the cake isn't worth your well being (as good as it may be).
