Custom Cakes

cake-galleryAt The Cakery Bakery, we are dedicated to making cakes that please the eye as well as the palate. All of our cakes are frosted with the Cakery’s original buttercream and are decorated with precision. Our style is fresh and fanciful, accommodating anything from elegant anniversaries to festive children’s birthdays. To ensure availability, we recommend placing cake orders several weeks in advance.  Please let us know if you have any nut or other allergies, as we do use pure almond extract in our buttercream.

  • Scroll through the designs in our gallery, keeping in mind that the center design and cake colors may be changed and wording may be added to personalize the cake for your occasion.
  • Please note that many styles have additional design fees based on labor, materials and colors. Please inquire.
  • We recommend 4 weeks notice for all orders.  Any changes to orders must be made at least 3 days in advance.
  • All custom orders must be paid in full at least one week in advance or order will not be filled.
  • We are currently booked for custom orders through Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020, but we are still taking orders for our ready-to-go-cakes and other short-notice options – ORDER ONLINE
