How much will my cake cost?

Our cakes vary depending on the complexity of the design. We do recommend that you provide us with your budget so that we can provide you with an estimate. We do not publish a price list as most of our cakes are unique and custom designed for your special occasion. Our cakes vary in price according to time, design, details, serving size and how involved the design is, providing us with your budget gives us a starting point and is extremely helpful in enabling us to provide design options.

Celebration/custom cakes start at approximately $6.00 (fondant) per serving or $5.50 (buttercream) per serving.

Can I send you a photo of a cake I like?

Absolutely! You can email it to us at info@cocoalanesweeterie.com -- we don't like to copy other Caker's designs but we are happy to use it as inspiration to create your special and unique celebration cake.

What is a dummy cake?

A dummy cake is a styrofoam tier used when clients want the appearance of a bigger cake, where there is no need for all servings. Dummy tiers are priced at $5/serving (based on the number of servings the tier would have had).

How far in advance do I need to place my order?

We appreciate as much notice as possible in order to secure your order and design your cake. Cakes are booked on availability - we recommend not leaving it to the last minute!

For all special events, a minimum time of 2-6 weeks in advance of your event is recommended. However please contact us for availability. 

Is there a deposit required when placing an order?

For orders over $50, we require a non-refundable 50% deposit to secure your date, due when your order is confirmed. The final balance is payable over 2 weeks prior to delivery or collection.

How should my cake be stored?

We highly recommend that our fondant covered cakes be stored in a cool environment, much like in an air conditioned room. Please do not place the cake in the fridge as this will cause the fondant to sweat and compromise the design of your cake.
