To inquire about custom cakes, please email email@example.com at least 3 weeks before the cake is needed. I will gather some info on the design you have in mind, provide a quote by email, and send an emailed invoice to book the custom cake order. Custom cakes are not booked through this site, as they are all unique.
Cakes on my regular menu can often have the color of frosting and wording of your choice (some cakes, such as those covered in chocolate frosting, ganache, fruit, or other garnish may be limited on special color or wording since they are not "plain" enough - any questions, please reach out before placing your order) Cupcakes frosted in vanilla can have the frosting color of your choice as well.
However, birthdays, weddings, showers, graduations, anniversaries, retirements, and other special events may call for a cake or cupcakes with extra pizazz!
Custom cakes are cakes that have special artwork and/or extra detail added. Cakes and cupcakes can be customized in many flavors with the addition of toppers, fondant or edible images.
All custom cakes and cupcakes have additional costs to provide for design, special supplies needed, and the additional time involved to create. There are three options to customize cakes and cupcakes:
- Toppers - These are special order items that can be found in nearly every theme imaginable. These are usually the least expensive option, and have the most flexibility since they can often be added to heavily-garnished cakes such as pecan turtle or cookies n cream. Prices vary widely, but usually start at an extra $15 and go up from there. ***If you are just looking to add a topper with words, an "Add Your Message" topper to one of my regular menu cakes, those are available to order under my regular menu.***
- Edible Images - these are images that are done on a sugar sheet and the sheet is trimmed added to the flat surface of the frosting. The result is a smooth image that looks like it was done on the frosting itself. These can be customized with just about any image! Imagine your loved one's face all over their retirement cake :-) The cost for these vary widely as well, and depend on how large the image(s) is/are to be added, as well as whether or not they need to be designed or if you have a photo ready with all detail to be created into an edible image. The cost for edible images start at usually an extra $20 and go up from there.
- Fondant - fondant is a moldable sugar paste, similar in texture to a playdough, that can be used to cover the surface of a cake or cupcakes, as well as add unlimited detail. It is made of sugar/corn starch, and contains dairy and soy. This is the most time-consuming of all custom options, and likewise is the most costly. However, fondant makes adorable and beautiful cakes!
If you are interested in a custom cake, please inquire a minimum of 3 weeks ahead to allow for communication, planning and ordering any special supplies needed. 💍Please note that wedding cakes are usually started months in advance, and are limited to dates I have available, as they are the most involved cakes I do and require extensive planning. If you have a wedding, please contact me as early as possible to inquire about availability 💍
I do reserve the right to decline custom designs for any reason, including designs that are copyright-protected. Thank you for your understanding.
