FAQ

How much does a cake cost?

Every cake is an individual creation and the price will be influenced by many different factors.

Before I can supply you with an accurate quote on a cake, there are a number of details that I will require. Firstly, I need to know how many people the cake must serve. I also need to know if the cake is going to be served as dessert or in finger slices with coffee.

Coffee serves are 2.5 by 2.5cm by the height of the cake (approx 10cm) and are just the right size to be served with coffee after dessert.

Dessert serves are 2.5 by 5cm by the height of the cake (approx 10cm). This is the size most frequently used by reception venues as a standard dessert size.

I will also need to know how you want the cake to be decorated so that I can factor in how long it will take me to complete it.

If you have a budget, please let me know as that helps in designing the cake for you.

Are cakes baked from scratch or is commercial pre-mix used?

All of my cakes are baked entirely from scratch using only the finest quality ingredients. I refuse to use bulk commercial pre-mix. Mudcakes are coated with chocolate ganache - a mixture of premium Callebaut chocolate and pure cream. This is left to set to give a perfectly smooth surface for the thin layer of fondant to be applied to.


How far in advance do I need to order my cake?

At least 6 weeks notice is desirable to avoid disappointment, particularly during busier months. However, I will always try to accommodate your needs where possible.
As I work alone and bake all cakes from scratch, I cannot physically complete more than 2 or 3 cakes per week.
As a result, my calendar fills up fairly quickly, so it is advisable to book your cake as far in advance as possible.
I aim for QUALITY, not quantity!

Do I need to pay a deposit?

A $100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your booking.
Payment in full is required a minimum of 10 days prior to collection or delivery of your cake.

Do I have to collect my cake or can it be delivered?

You are most welcome to collect your cake from my premises on the north side of Brisbane or I can personally deliver and set up your cake to any area of Brisbane as well as up to the Sunshine Coast and beyond.  Contact me for a quote.

Is there a minimum order?

My minimum order charge for cakes is $100.
