Types of Cakes

Whether you prefer fondant or butter cream, we’ve got you covered with our selection of cakes. Just look for the type specified in the product description before placing your order.

Buttercream Cakes: If you’re looking for a cake with a creamy, buttery taste, we recommend trying our Swiss Meringue buttercream cakes. Our special buttercream recipe is light and silky, with a lower sugar content than other buttercreams.

Fondant Cakes: Our fondant cakes are a true work of art, with a layer of ganache (chocolate + cream) that’s covered with a layer of fondant (sugar dough). While they require more work and ingredients than buttercream cakes, the result is a stunning and unique cake that’s worth it. However, it’s important to note that because of the sugar in the fondant, they tend to be sweeter than buttercream cakes. To minimize the sweetness, we use high percentage chocolate for our ganache, which also gives it a rich and delicious flavor.


How Long Does the Cake Last?

To get the most out of your cake, we recommend consuming it within 3 days of receiving it. For storage, be sure to wrap any remaining cake tightly in plastic wrap and store it in an airtight container. To protect the cake from outside odors and preserve its moisture, wrap it in aluminum foil on top of the plastic wrap before placing it in the fridge.


Cake Storage/Serving Prep:

Keep the cake refrigerated if you are not planning to serve it immediately after pick up. This will help maintain its freshness and ensure that it stays in good condition.

  • Fondant Cakes: Under normal conditions (excluding hot days), this cake can be left out at room temperature for 4-5 hours without compromising its quality.

  • Buttercream Cakes: For optimal texture and flavor, it is recommended to bring the cake to room temperature before serving. In warm weather, such as summertime (excluding hot days), leave the cake out for 1 hour, until the buttercream is soft and similar in consistency to room temperature butter. For cooler days in fall, winter, or spring, leave the cake out for at least 2 hours to ensure the perfect softness and creaminess of the buttercream.

DO NOT leave the cake out under direct sunlight or in your car during sunny days. The cake may end up losing its shape and stability.


Dietary Restrictions

While we offer several nut-free flavors, it’s important to note that our facility processes nuts.

We recognize the need for gluten-free and vegan options and have experimented with recipes, but we are still working on perfecting a formula that meets our quality standards. We appreciate your patience and will keep you updated on any progress we make towards offering these options

To schedule a pickup, all you need to do is select an available date and time slot during the checkout process. Once you have placed your order, pickup instructions will be sent to you.

Don’t worry, we keep the text message discreet so that the sender and contents of the package remain a surprise.

Wedding Tasting Box

We want you to feel confident in the quality of our products, which is why we offer a tasting box that can be delivered or picked up. Each tasting box includes our top 6 flavors, giving you the opportunity to try them before committing to a larger order. This way, you can ensure that the flavors and textures meet your expectations and choose the perfect cake for your special occasion.

Wedding Serving Counts

When it comes to wedding cakes, we offer a range of options to suit your preferences and budget. In addition to traditional tiered cakes, we also offer decorated polystyrene blocks that resemble a cake. These blocks can be used to create a visually stunning display without the added cost of a fully edible cake. 

In general you have the following options:

  • If you prefer to have an all-edible wedding cake, you can opt for our “all cake” option. This means that all tiers of your wedding cake will be made of real cake that can be used for display, cutting, and serving.
  • Order a display cake made of dummies (decorated polystyrene blocks that look exactly like a cake) and then supplement it with some of our naked cakes that are served from the venue’s kitchen. One tier can be real cake for cake cutting and will be added to the number of your desired servings. This option is good for:
    • Anyone who wishes to have a tiered cake but does not need that many servings
    • Anyone who wishes to order a cake with higher than 4 tiers. Up to 4 tiers can be real cake but for stability reasons the rest should be dummies; which will be supplemented with naked cakes that are served from the venue’s kitchen.
  • Order a display only cake made of dummies only.

Delivery/Pick Up for Wedding Cakes

For venue deliveries, our team will contact your designated contact person, who is usually a member of the venue staff, wedding coordinator, or a family member, upon arrival. They will guide us to the cake setup location where we will set up the cake, ensuring it’s in perfect condition. Once the cake is in place, your contact person will sign a waiver confirming its satisfactory condition.

If you prefer, you or your friends and family can pick up your order on your special day from our Vancouver location. We will be happy to help position the cake in your vehicle, ensuring safe and easy transportation.
