HOW LONG DO CAKES STAY FRESH AFTER DELIVERY?
We recommend enjoying your cake either the day it’s delivered or the following day for best flavor and best-looking botanicals. Cakes are freshly baked the day before your delivery, and we use floral spikes to keep stems hydrated for up to 24 hours.That said, our customers have been known to savor their cakes for up to a week, if kept chilled and tightly sealed in plastic wrap.
DO YOU OFFER GLUTEN-FREE OR DAIRY-FREE OPTIONS?
Unfortunately, due to the large volume of orders this season, we are unable to offer GF or DF options at this time. Please check back! We look forward to expanding our GF menu and add dairy-free cakes in the coming months.
HOW DO I STORE/SERVE MY PARTY CAKE?
Cakes should be kept chilled in your fridge until about an hour before you’re planning to serve. Buttercream is best at room temperature, so let the cake sit for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
CAN I ADD A CUSTOM MESSAGE TO MY CAKE?
Unfortunately, we do not offer piped messages, but we do offer complimentary gift tags for a short message at checkout and our new stenciled designs with custom letters and monograms.
WHERE DO YOU DELIVER?
Our party cakes are currently available within a 10 mile radius of downtown Charlottesville.
DO YOU DELIVER CHAMPAGNE?
Yes! We now deliver our sparkling wines, retail gifts and pantry items, along with our cakes. Please note: we ID all customers making alcohol purchases.
CAN I CUSTOMIZE FLORALS FOR MY PARTY CAKE?
Currently, our cakes feature florals and botanicals chosen and styled by the baker–including edible blooms, fresh herbs and fruits, all locally-grown using organic practices. We can't guarantee specific colors or florals, but will always do our best to accommodate special requests within the limitations of the season and our growers' availability.
If you prefer, we’d also be happy to leave your party cake ungarnished or omit colors by request, which you can indicate at checkout.
ARE THE FLOWERS EDIBLE?
We exclusively use edible, non-toxic flowers (those grown using organic practices without the use of pesticides or chemicals) as well as fresh fruits, flowering herbs, and wild edible greens. While a stray petal or leaf won’t hurt you, please note that botanicals are chosen from a safety standpoint rather than for their flavor profile, so we recommend removing before serving.
DO YOU OFFER CORPORATE GIFTS?
Yes! We have a number of collections designed for corporate gifting or happy to customize a bulk order. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
