Birthday Cakes & Celebration Cakes Cary NC Raleigh NC

Our custom cakes are designed in collaboration with our customers and cake decorators. We strive to create the perfect design with all the elements you have in mind; whether it’s elaborate and detailed fondant work or simple buttercream flowers in special colors, we take care and pride in each custom cake order. Our team of creative professionals have created some unique cake designs as you can see in our custom cake gallery.

As you consider the design for your cake, we ask that you allow us ample time to create it. Fondant work takes time to dry before we can place those elements on a cake. Multiple colors, flavors, fillings and detailed decoration add to the overall cost and time factor in creating your cake. Our minimum lead time for custom layer cakes is one week, with fondant decorated cakes having a minimum of two weeks’ notice. During holidays, longer lead times may apply. Short notice or rush jobs may be accepted on a case by case basis and additional charges will apply”. If our production schedule permits, we can produce orders in a shorter amount of time, but please call ahead. We cannot always accommodate short notice orders. Rush fees may apply in some cases. If you have any questions regarding birthday and celebration cakes don't hesitate to ask!

terms Conditions

Choking Risk
Many of our custom cake designs feature small EDIBLE and NON-EDIBLE items in the decorations that may pose a choking hazard/risk. We recommend an adult remove all these items from any child’s cake just before cutting and serving your cake. Please use caution when cutting your cake.

Customer Provided Decorations
Customers may provide their own decorations but they must be approved in advance prior to placing the cake order. Customer assumes all responsibility for suitability of decorations to be used for the cake. Depending on the design to be incorporated with the decoration, there may be additional charges incurred.

Design Specifications
If no specific design details are called out by the customer and are not on the written cake order, the cake decorator will use their discretion as to what designs, colors, flowers, etc., are applied to the cake. Example: If a customer indicates they want ‘pink and green’ used somewhere in the cake decoration or to add ‘some flowers or scrolls’ but does not specify anything more detailed, this will fall under the cake decorator’s discretion. We make every effort to clarify our customer’s wishes. Customers are ultimately responsible to indicate what design, decoration, flavors, colors or inscriptions they want on their cake.

Detailed Custom Work
For detailed custom designs other than basic inscriptions and buttercream flowers or swirls, concept sketches will be drawn up prior to finalizing your cake order and emailed to you for approval. Colors will be approximated for frostings and decorations. If you have specific color matching requirements (to coordinate with an invitation or theme), we will attempt to match them but cannot guarantee exact matches. If you want to bring us a photo of a cake design you want duplicated, most of the time we can approximate another design, but we reserve the right to decline any request or to make necessary changes to a design. Please allow sufficient time to price and process these special orders. All fondant work is by quote only and requires a minimum of 2 weeks notice or more.

Delivery is available for wedding cakes and catering orders (fee applies). All other orders are to be picked up at our location. Deliveries must be approved and arranged prior to finalizing the order. The customer or their authorized agent must sign for all deliveries. Once a cake is delivered it is the responsibility of the receiving party.

Flavors, Fillings and Frostings
Please take care in ordering your cake. If you are not sure of a description of one of these elements, please ask the person taking your order to explain it. You can also talk to the production department head for further information if you need it before making a decision.

All cakes with inscriptions, custom and decorated cake orders must be paid for in full upon ordering. Wedding cake orders are subject to other terms and conditions that are not covered here. Please call for an appointment to discuss any wedding cake orders.

Smash Cakes
We do not use any sprinkles, fondant decorations or candies. Customers are free to apply these on their own.

Tiered Cakes
For tiered cakes, we will use structural components inside the tiers to support the tier above it. These may be wood skewers, straws, plastic sticks or other items needed to support the weight of the tiers. Please use caution in removing these from your cake when deconstructing it for slicing and serving.
