Cake Ordering and Delivery


Can you deliver my cake today?

All our cakes are baked fresh by local bakeries. Most of the time they require at least 72 hours’ notice to be able to prepare your cake.

If you have questions please call us at 1-866-527-5244.

Can I choose the time of day for my cake delivery?

Since the cakes are baked fresh for the delivery date, the bakery will contact the recipient to arrange delivery time so there is someone home at the time of the delivery.

I would like to surprise the recipient; Please do not call the recipient.

Since the nature of the fresh cake your gift cannot be a complete surprise. The bakery will have to contact the recipient and set up a time for the delivery and to make sure there is someone there to receive the gift. We can keep the gift a partial surprise by saying they have a special delivery.

Can you leave my cake at the front/back door if no one is home?

No, we cannot leave bakery items outside. We must ensure the recipient is home. Unfortunately because we cannot control the weather conditions, bakery items will spoil on a hot or humid day. There is also a chance of theft or damage if left outside.
