If you have a cake design in mind please let us know.
How far ahead of time do I need to place my order?
Currently 2 weeks prior to a small order & the complexity of your order you may require a few weeks in advance and depending on our availability due to the number of other orders placed. However, there are times that you may require to order at short notice. In this case please send us an enquiry and we will check to see if we are booked out or not.
The best idea is to book your celebration order as early as you can to secure the date.
Once picked up or delivery has occurred, how do I store my cupcakes/sweets/cakes?
We would recommend you pop them into your fridge as soon as you return home from picking up your cupcakes/sweets/cakes or once delivered. The fridge helps to retain the moisture as well as stopping the buttercream from melting in humid weather. Our cupcakes can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5-7 days. You also have the choice to freeze our buttercream cupcakes/tray cakes (slice up for easy access, if needed).
It is always best to remove cupcakes/ tray cakes/ sweets from freezer or fridge at least several hours
before you need to eat them.
Meringue and Marshmallow Cupcakes are best eaten on the day of purchase or the following day, not for freezing. Meringue needs to be stored in an air tight container.
Meringues are prone to becoming sticky due to the moisture in the air.
Cinnamon Scrolls are delicious to eat on the day of baking, however scrolls can be refreshed by placing them in the microwave and reheated in 10 second bursts.
So you can freeze these bundles of yumminess and refresh in the microwave.
Your cake/cupcakes will come in a box. Place on the floor/foot hole area of the car not on the seat in case you need to slam on your brakes and we do not want your cake flying through the car, also the car seats are on an angle. If you have any non-slip matting that will also help with the box from sliding around. Do not leave in a hot car or directly in the sunlight. You can place in the boot area of the car as it is a flat area. (however, you need to make sure it does not slide around) Always drive slowly and take corners carefully. It is also always good to have a helper/another person with transporting your cakes safely, especially if the above options are not available for placing your cake. If possible leave in the fridge until you need the cake or cupcakes just as it will help your buttercream cake to stay in it's shape due to our humid climate. Safe travels.
