You may purchase your cake with cash or credit card at the time of pick up. If the cake is to be delivered payment must be received in full two weeks before delivery.

All orders over $500 require at 50% deposit at the time the order is placed. Deposits are non refundable.

When should I order my cake?
Please order your cake as soon as possible. The longer the lead time we have the better we can accommodate all of our clients.

Often we can accommodate rush orders. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are in need of a wedding, birthday or party cake last minute. We will do our best to meet your needs.

Do you deliver cakes?
Yes we deliver to many locations in Maine and New Hampshire for large cake orders. Please inquire before or when placing your order.

Orders cancelled at least 48 hours prior to pick up or delivery will be refunded all charges over the deposit.  Orders cancelled within 48 hours of pick up or delivery will not be refunded.

Will you work with my florist?
Yes we will work with your florist. Fresh flowers are a beautiful option to adorn your custom cake. Because working with fresh flowers in your cake is a health issue and potential chemicals in commercial flowers are a concern, we would prefer to add the final touches on the cake ourselves. This will ensure that they have been placed properly for the safety of you, your family and friends.
