FAQ

CAKE

Can I walk in and get a cake?

No, sorry. We have a small kitchen and limited refrigeration. All our cakes are custom orders. In the future at our new location we hope to be able to have a few cakes available on the weekends.

Are all your cakes tall?

Yes. That’s our standard. Four layers of cake and three fillings. Sometimes we offer shorter cakes for special holidays.

Do you have a menu for cakes?

Not yet. In all honesty we never had the time to get a menu together. We will soon but in the meantime we will keep crafting every cake according to the flavors you love most. Even after we do have a menu, we will still offer customization, because why not? That’s so much fun!

What are your most popular flavor combinations?

Top 3: Strawberry Lemon, Chocolate Oreo Confetti and Carrot! (Have you ever tried our carrot cake? It’s to die for!)

Can I freeze one of your cakes? What about leftovers?

Absolutely! As long as you didn’t order a cake with fresh fruit in it, our cakes are very freezable! Stick the box it comes in straight into the freezer. Let us know you intend freezing it and we can chat with you about it!. Fresh fruit cake leftovers are best if kept in the fridge in an airtight container and enjoyed within 3 days. Full buttercream cakes can sit on the counter in an airtight container for up to 3 days, more than that, freeze that baby, single slices wrapped in cling film work perfectly.

I bought a cake and the buttercream was hard. Help!

Our buttercream is a Swiss meringue buttercream. Unlike American buttercream, the powdered sugar type, it’s butter and egg based. There’s six pounds of butter in our buttercream batch. A stick of butter is not really that delicious cold. Same with our cakes. Please allow your cake to come to room temperature before enjoying. From the fridge, we recommend 2-3 hours for cakes with fresh fruit in it; and 4-5 hours for full buttercream cakes.

How do I cut one of your cakes?

Here’s a little tutorial 🙂

 

I’d like a Minnie Mouse cake, or a My Little Pony cake. Do you do that?

No, sorry. Those are trademarked characters and while big chain stores are allowed to reproduce them, we are not. We can make you the most delicious cake ever, and the outside can be inspired by your favorite character, but we don’t put said characters on the cakes. Our clients normally shop Etsy for cool toppers or place small toys atop our cakes. Our cakes are very simple in design, we focus on flavor and quality.

Can you do a fondant cake?

Not at this time. We only use minimal amounts of fondant for plaques and don’t do fondant covered cakes. It’s just not our thing. We also don’t offer sculpted cakes. We will stick to our thing for now, and that is great buttercream cakes.

 

MACARONS

Can I freeze macarons?

Yes, please! They love that! That’s actually where they live at the shop! Macaron making for us is a three day process, and after every step they go rest in the freezer. When you take some home from the shop place in the fridge overnight if you plan on eating them within a couple of days, otherwise air-tight container in the freezer and you will have fresh macarons for months. They only really need thirty minutes out of the freezer to come to an enjoyable temperature. Never leave them on the counter overnight, they go stale fast!

How often do you make macarons? Are they fresh?

Every single week! They are as fresh as you can get them! That’s why they are so tasty! We make anywhere from 10 to 16 flavors weekly and most batches don’t make it to the next week. Do you have a flavor suggestion? Email or call us! We would love to hear it!

Do you use food coloring? And artificial flavorings?

We use minimal amounts of food coloring in some shells. The fillings, either a ganache or a Swiss meringue buttercream, are always naturally flavored!

What are macarons made out of?

At our shop they are made of egg whites, powdered cane sugar, granulated cane sugar and almond flour. They are naturally gluten free.
