What is a custom cake? A cake order where “everything” is customized — the size, flavor and design. 

If you are not needing a custom cake, we have many Ready-To-Go and Choose-A-Design pre-decorated cakes available in our online store.

At 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.
