Please note that tiered cakes, shaped cakes, and some of our more elaborate cakes follow different guidelines.  Because certain cakes are more time intensive and we limit these types of orders, we require payment in full at the time of the order..  Cancellations within days 5-14 before pickup will result in a full refund.  Cancellations within days 0-4 before pickup will result in no refund.

Can I bring my own flowers to put on a cake?

Yes, fresh flowers need to be dropped off the day before the scheduled pickup or delivery

Do you have any gluten free products?

Because all of our products are made in the same facility, we cannot say that any of our products are gluten free.  We do have certain items that are Gluten Sensitive such as our coconut macaroons, brownies, Almond Joy bars, and crustless key lime pies.  We do not recommend these products for people who will have a severe reaction to gluten.
