Not at this time. If you want to get information or place an order the fastest way to get a response is by calling. We try really hard to check our e-mail frequently, but sometimes we are busy baking and helping customers.
No, sorry. We specialize in classic American pastries/cakes and desserts. This means lots of butter, heavy cream and eggs. We do have cheesecakes, and a flourless chocolate cake. Although, not certified gluten-free, we do not add any flour to these items. If you have severe nut allergies, we recommend that you not purchase our products, as we cannot guarantee cross-contamination.
Not really. Sometimes, we get a wild hair and will make an extra cake…but for the most part, no. It never hurts to call and ask.
It depends on what you are ordering. If you want 12 assorted cupcakes…sure, we can usually do that within a day. You can generally come in and just pick them out yourself. If you want one flavor, one or two days is sufficient. We can’t guarantee we’ll have every flavor, but for the most part it’s not a problem. For whole cakes, we like to tell people 2 – 5 days. In some cases We can only do so many cakes at a time and we want to make sure that you get the freshest cake possible, sometimes it is necessary to cut off the orders.
Our cakes are made with butter, eggs, and heavy cream. These premium ingredients make our cakes especially delicious, but perishable. It’s best to keep them refrigerated until shortly before serving. It also depends on what temperature you like to eat your cake. A room temperature cake is going to have a different texture than a cold one. You can leave them out longer in cooler weather and much shorter in warmer.
If you store them properly, yes. Wrap your box in plastic and refrigerate or freeze. Freezing will preserve your cakes longer and better. We use super premium ingredients, and this keeps our products fresher, longer.
Yes. It’s a one dozen minimum per variety for regular sized pastries or cupcakes. We can put together an assortment of cupcakes for you, but selection may vary. It’s a two dozen minimum per flavor for our bite sized “Lidibits”. Once you have met the minimum for one variety, you can have additional pieces in whatever increments you need. For example you can order 38 bite sized passion fruit cheesecake on a stick.
Ah, we get this one a lot. For a number reasons. I promise, it’s not because we don’t like you, nor are we trying to be difficult. It’s because we don’t have room in our kitchen to store a bunch of little boxes with various things. It’s not fair to other customers, and sometimes we don’t have all the items you are looking for. We try really hard to keep certain items stocked, sometimes they sell out, and it doesn’t make sense to try to make just three of something and set it aside for one person.
Not at this time, keeping checking the website for any changes on this particular policy.
No, sorry. We generally do layer cakes…four layers of cake and three layers of filling. We also do cheesecakes, flourless chocolate truffle cake and bundt cakes, call for details.
No, sorry. We cannot do these cakes for legal reasons. Bakeries must have a license to make these kinds of cakes.
Yes. We don’t have standardized cake designs. You have to tell us what you want and then we can work with you about the details.
Sometimes. Call or e-mail for details.
We make cinnamon rolls. That’s as far as we go. They are currently available on Saturdays.
Heck no! We make all of our pastries from scratch…down to the peanut butter and marshmallows. We don’t buy mixes, or have buckets of cake fillings and/or frostings.
Well, we bake everyday, typically all day. Stop by and you’ll see for yourself. We usually do not bake our cakes the day they are ordered. Cakes are not like donuts, croissants or bagels…they need time to cool so we can frost them without the icing melting and making a mess. Every bakery is different, but most chill the cake to make it easier to assemble and frost. I promise, the process of chilling the cake is much better than letting it sit out and room temperature for hours. Freezing, and refrigeration does not cause a cake to dry out…overbaking does.
It depends on how large of an order, how customized the order will be and if you want delivery and set up. We would prefer a minimum of a month notice and no more than six months advanced notice.
Not formally. Instead of charging you a tasting fee and taking up your valuable time, we suggest that you come in during our regular hours and buy a few cupcakes, take them home or taste them on the patio. If you like them you can order your cake or cupcakes right then and there, or even set up a meeting to discuss custom options. We don’t recommend cream cheese icing on wedding cakes during summer or during warm weather. They will melt much more quickly. We also don’t recommend fondant on cream cheese. The high moisture content of the cream cheese can cause the fondant to break down or sweat. If you absolutely must have cream cheese in your cake, we will make a higher cake to frosting ratio and finish with a buttercream or ganache.
Basic wedding cake prices start at $6.50 a slice, custom designs, fondant, sugar sculpture are additional. Delivery and set up for a tiered wedding cake, cupcakes, mini desserts etc. start at $125. Straight drop off prices are dependent on the location of your event. Any display pieces would be rented at an additional cost. Rentals start at $25.
Uh…I wouldn’t recommend it. I wouldn’t want to eat anything after a year, not even ice cream. Why not celebrate your anniversary with a fresh cake!

Because it was available.
I love baking, it’s my dream, it’s my passion, how do I get started? Do you have any job openings? Do you take interns?
Okay, we hear this every day. Take some classes. Start as a dishwasher, counter person, etc. and weasel your way into a baking position. We don’t take interns at this time. If you have experience, submit your resume here.
I’ve seen them.
Do you think Journey is the same without Steve Perry and do you think he will ever re- join the band?
Uh..NO and no. Hello…Steve is only the best singer in the world, and yes I would love to meet him and go to Disneyland with him. I don’t think he will ever re-join the band. I think he should go out on his own, like he did with his first solo album “Street Talk”.
