What is a custom cake?
Ahhh...custom cakes! We've all been at the bakeries and flipped through their book of cake selections, find the one that fits our theme (usually titled something like A17), mark it on the order form along with a little check next to chocolate or vanilla, write out a short message (or not), and pick up the cake a few days later. But now that's not a custom cake. So, what is!
A custom cake is a lot more fun! It's just that...custom! Meaning anything you dream up can be created into an edible work of art...within reason, of course. What is involved in a custom cake? Let me share with you how we work with clients to help them create a one of a kind cake!
First things first...flavor! The yummy part! We offer a large variety of flavors and fillings. And, you can custom build your own taste. We don't pre-choose fillings to go with the flavors...that's the custom part. If you want a vanilla cake with raspberry filling then go for it, or maybe a lemon, or maybe go crazy and choose an Italian Cream cake with a Bailey's Chocolate Mousse filling. FYI...done it several times and it's unique and fabulous! Definitely not something to be expected.
Once we've got your flavor decided then we can start building. We start with your guest count and the size of cake you had in mind. Followed by shape. Then, we create! We discuss theme, colors, etc. If you are having a Cinco De Mayo party then let's run with it and design a cake with that inspiration. Maybe you like bling, then let's bedazzle the cake. Are you planning an event that is covered in vintage lace...we can create a cake with a beautiful sugar lace that is tasty as well as gorgeous.
Custom cakes are those special, one of a kind cakes, that are made specifically for you and your event. Personalized with your ideas in mind. Let's have fun and create together!
