What can I expect to pay for a cake?
Every cake that leaves our kitchen is baked from scratch, to order. Our hope is that our cakes will be the highlight of your event, and will leave your guests marveling at the presentation and coming back for seconds after their first taste! Our pricing reflects the time and effort that goes into creating something completely unique.
Our custom cakes are priced based on the serving size and complexity of the design. Our simply designed cakes start at $4.00 per serving for buttercream, and $5.00 per serving for fondant designs. Adding items like fillings, sugar decorations, piping etc. does add to cost and we find that our typical custom cake averages $7.00-$9.00 per serving.
We also offer more simple cakes for smaller occasions available for pickup. These cakes are aimed to please the palate and are simply decorated with pricing as follows:
6” round cake, serves 12 – $45
8” round cake, serves 24 – $65
10” round cake, serves 38 – $95
How long will my desserts keep?
All of our desserts are best consumed on the day they are purchased, as we bake fresh every morning. That being said, if you have amazing will power and can resist the urge to eat everything all at once, here are some tips for storing your goodies:
Cakes: keep airtight in the fridge for 3-5 days, or freeze up to 12 months. Serve at room temperature.
Cupcakes: Keep airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days
Cookies/Brownies: keep in packaging at room temp for up to 7 days
French Macarons: Refrigerate in packaging for 3-5 days. Serve at room temperature.
Cake Truffles: Refrigerate for up to 10 days. Serve at room temperature.
Cheesecakes: Keep refrigerated for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Serve cold.
Do you deliver?
Yes! We offer delivery within Charlotte (delivery charge and minimum order based on zip code) as well as delivery farther afield for weddings and events. We strongly encourage having our custom layer cakes delivered as we have experience with transporting and setup, and can ensure that your fantastic cake arrives at its destination in perfect condition. Please note that if pickup is selected as opposed to delivery, we are not responsible for damage to orders that occur after they leave our hands.
Do you offer corporate logos on your products?
Of course! There are several ways we can place corporate logos on a variety of our baked treats. Contact us with a copy of your logo and we would love to help select the option makes your company’s logo memorable and delicious!
Do you offer catering to offices and events?
Certainly! Just contact us with information about your event and we can handle everything from the dessert display to delivery, and of course provide the most delicious treats in town!
How far in advance do I need to place a custom order?
I always say the sooner the better! We do tend to book up and baking fresh does require some extra advance planning (not to mention the more time we have to work on your project the better the results will be!). That being said, if a sudden occasion arises, or you happened to forget a birthday, it is always worth giving us a call and we will do our absolute best to fit you in. We can also deliver/reserve for pickup items prepared fresh for our bakery case on the same day so if you are in a pinch that’s always an option!
Do you offer tastings? How many people can I bring? Do you charge for tastings?
We would love the opportunity to sit down with you to taste, discuss, and design your custom wedding cake! We will provide cake samples for you and a guest, and will guide you through the design process to help create the perfect cake for your special occasion. There is a $25.00 fee to reserve a tasting session which includes your cake samples and sketches of your one-of-a-kind cake. This charge acts as a credit towards your final order.
Do I have to make a deposit to reserve my wedding date?
There is a 50% non-refundable deposit required to reserve your wedding date, with remaining payment due no later than 21 days prior to your event date. This ensures that we have enough time to plan and prepare for your cake. The more time we have to devote to your project the better the final outcome will be!
I’m concerned about peanut, egg, dairy, gluten or other allergies.
Delish Cakery is not an allergen free bakery, we do use ingredients including peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, dairy, and eggs to create our delicious goods. If you or someone in your party has an allergy please notify our staff. Persons with severe allergies should refrain from consuming our products.
What is your return and cancellation policy?
Because we reserve the date in our calendar, and begin the planning process for your order, deposits for custom cakes are non-refundable.
Under no circumstances will a refund be given for completed orders. In some cases, a replacement cake or discount on a future order will be offered. Our goal is to ensure that you are completely satisfied and in the rare event that this is not the case; we will work to resolve the issue on an individual basis.
