Does the cake and buttercream flavour affect the look of the cake?
The buttercream filling flavour you choose can not be seen from the outside of the cake, so feel free to choose which ever flavour you like, no matter the design of the cake! The flavour of cake you pick will only affect the look if you opt for a semi-naked finish (in which the layers of cake peek through the buttercream) For example if you choose red velvet, layers of red cake will be seen through the buttercream and may or may not fit in with the over all design. Please keep in mind that chocolate mud cake is not suitable for a semi-naked finish or the base tier of a tiered cake as it is naturally too soft and crumbly.
Do you deliver?
Yes! Delivery fee is $30 for within 40 minutes of Collaroy and $50 for within 90 minutes. Deliveries over 90 mins will be quoted for on an individual basis. We do not currently deliver any further than 3 hours from Collaroy. Pick-up is also available from our studio. Please note delivery is required for all cakes with 3 or more tiers.
Can my florist do the flowers on my cake?
Unfortunately, we do not allow anyone else to dress our wedding cakes. The finishing touches are often the entirety of the design and something we really pride ourselves on! In select circumstances we will work together with your florist and have them supply the cake flowers. We will then prepare them and place them ahead of delivery!
Do you do gluten free/dairy free/allergy friendly cakes?
We offer a delicious GF chocolate cake, however we can not guarantee that it doesn't contain traces of gluten as we work from a studio that handles large amounts of wheat flour. We do not currently offer any vegan options, sorry!
Do you ship cake/cookies?
If it’s cake you're after- you'll need to be in Sydney! But if cookies are more your thing- you're in luck! We ship our cookies Australia wide!
How far in advanced do I need to order?
For wedding cakes, your best bet is to get in as soon as possible. We allow clients to lock in dates with a deposit for up to 8 months in advance. We are only a small studio and we take on a maximum of seven tiers a week so space strictly limited. Many of our popular months (February, March, October, November, December) will book out around 6 - 8 months ahead of time. Click here to fill out our custom cake form to find out whether we still have availability for your date!
Do you use fondant?
We do not cover any of our cakes in fondant. All cakes are iced in swiss meringue buttercream. There are more than a few places in Sydney to get stunning fondant cakes- but not here, sorry!
Do you bake from scratch?
Sure do! Everything is made by us using the best quality ingredients we can get our little hands on!
Do I have to pay now?
We ask for a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of the booking in order to secure the date. Your booking is NOT confirmed until this deposit is received. Your spot on the date of your event may be given to another client if the deposit is not received. The final instalment is due the tuesday before your event.
Do you hold classes?
We do hold the occasional cake demo- keep an eye out on our social media for more information about upcoming dates! In the mean time, we also offer complete online tutorials in which Eliza walks you through her entire caking process start to finish. Click here to learn more!
I've sent you an enquiry and haven't heard back yet?
Hang tight! We strive to reply to all enquiries within 4-5 days. If you haven’t heard back in this time, shoot us another email to double check the first one made it!
