Do you ever bake any products with peanuts or tree nuts in your kitchen?
No. My daughter has severe tree nut and peanut allergies, so I do not ever use these products in my kitchen. The only exception is the rare use of coconut. Coconut, the seed of a drupaceous fruit, has typically not been restricted in the diets of people with tree nut allergy. However, in October of 2006, the FDA began identifying coconut as a tree nut. If you have a coconut allergy, please inform me!
Do you accommodate other allergies?
Due to my daughter's former egg allergy, I do have a couple delicious egg free recipes. I can also accommodate dairy free requests. I will not be using dedicated egg and dairy free equipment, but all surfaces and bake supplies will be double washed with a fresh sponge. Please inform me of all allergies so I can be sure to eliminate cross contact issues.
Do you bake gluten free?
Due to the large amount of flour that is frequently in use in my kitchen, I do not bake gluten free.
Do I need to have an allergy to order one of your cakes?
No! I bake for everyone! I, obviously, cannot accommodate any requests for baked goods with nuts, but you won't even miss them!
Do you have a food license?
Yes! I have a residential food license, and I am ServSafe certified.
Do you deliver?
Delivery is available at $.56 per mile (based on round trip mileage) from 9 Walnut St in Wilmington, MA to your destination. (Yes, my street name is unfortunate. No, there are not any walnut trees around.) There is an additional fee if delivery is during rush hour. Wedding cakes are subject to a set up fee. Delivery is only available if I am free on your selected date of delivery. You are, of course, welcome to pick your cake up for no fee.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes. I require a 50% deposit to hold your date since I am only able to make a certain number of cakes per week. Payment in full is required prior to your pick up or delivery date. If you are paying by check, I must receive the check 4 days prior to pick up or delivery. You may pay via credit card by using Paypal.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations made 14 days prior to your pick up or delivery date with be refunded minus a $25.00 handling fee. Cancellations made within two weeks of pick up or delivery will forfeit the full 50% deposit. I'm sorry, but there are no exceptions to this policy. I can only make a certain number of products each week, and I will have already dedicated time for your creation.
What is a cake pop?
A cake pop is almost like a cake truffle. The center is fully baked cake that is crumbled and mixed with a tiny bit of frosting. The coating is milk, dark or white chocolate. The chocolate can also be colored and flavored. I use Chocoley chocolates for my candy coating.
How much are cake pops?
Cake pop pricing starts at $2.25 per cake pop and goes up from there depending on the complexity of the design. Minimum order is one dozen.
How much are cupcakes?
Cupcake prices are $2.00 and up, depending on whether or not the cupcake is filled, specialty flavors and the complexity of the design. Minimum order is one dozen per flavor.
How much are your cakes?
All cakes are custom orders, so there is no set price. The complexity of the design, time required to make your cake and price of ingredients factor into the pricing.
Fondant or modeling chocolate figures are an additional $20 per hour for the time required to make these pieces. I will provide you with an estimate of my time and will not charge more if I have underestimated the complexity of the 3D figure.
