Basic Cakes…what they are & how to order!

We make lots of cakes every week, and not every single cake is a custom/themed or tiered cake. Lots of our cakes are also what we call a basic cake, but they are anything but basic! Basic cakes are perfect if you don’t have a theme or special design you want, don’t want a tiered cake (but if you do, we have a design-a-tiered option for that too!), or for a last minute order since our custom orders book out further in advance (we are now taking a very limited number of custom cakes so these can book up several months in advance and for more info, you can check out this blog post!). Our basic cakes require a 3 day notice so if you need a cake for a certain day, here are the days to order them by:

  • Saturday pickup- order by end of business day Wednesday
  • Monday pickup- order by end of business day Thursday
  • Tuesday pickup- order by end of business day Friday
  • Wednesday pickup- order by end of business day Saturday
  • Thursday pickup- order by end of business day Monday
  • Friday pickup- order by end of business day Tuesday

For flavors, we offer any of our cupcake and cake flavors as an option. We have list of our most popular flavors on our website and you can check them out HERE! A basic cake is just one tier so it can just be one flavor, and the flavors listed on the website are a combination of cake, frosting, and filling flavors (for example, salted chocolate caramel is a chocolate cake, caramel filing with sea salt, and chocolate buttercream).

We also offer gluten free! We have chocolate and red velvet gluten free cake, and you can still choose tons of frosting and filling options to go with them. Pretty much everything EXCEPT any of our cookie dough frostings, malted frosting, and cookies & cream frostings will work! Additional pricing is as follows:

  •  4″ – 6″ cakes- additional $5
  • 7″ – 10″ cakes- additional $10
  • 11″ – 14″ and half sheet cakes- additional $15
  • full sheet cake- additional $30
  • If you do a tiered cake, the ENTIRE cake must be gluten free to avoid cross contact

Our basic cakes are round cakes that serve 4-50 people.. Here are the sizes to choose from with pricing (pricing does NOT include tax):

  • 4 inch- 4 servings $15
  • 6 inch- 8 servings $25
  • 8 inch- 16 servings $45
  • 10 inch- 26 servings $65
  • 12 inch- 36 servings $85
  • 14 inch- 50 servings $110

Even though we call the cake a basic cake, it doesn’t mean it is boring and there are no options and you can still customize it to match your party! We can still match colors with frosting, sprinkles, and writing. There are even different textures to choose from and add-ons! They are:
