Our standard cakes are typically small single- to two-tiered cakes. They are usually decorated with a few buttercream flowers, minimal designs. They are great for smaller receptions or parties between 10-50 guests. 

Typical price range for single tier at around $7.50-$8.00 per serving:

4″ Round – serves 4-8 slices, starts at $60
5″ Round – serves 5-10 slices, starts at $75
6″ Round – serves 10-15 slices, starts at $113
8″ Round – serves 20-24 slices, starts at $180
10″ Round – serves 28-38 slices, starts at $285


Our themed cakes are usually designed toward younger audiences and events such as birthday parties, baby shower celebrations, etc. They are typically done with edible painting on fondant. We no longer offer fondant figures cakes or fondant decorated cakes. Pricing will be based on the design complexity, and serving size.

Typical price range for single tier themed cakes ranges from $8-$13


These are cakes that will require consultation, design, special supplies and additional time needed for each custom designed cake. They are intricately detailed works of edible art. Each cake will be calculated based on serving size, design, supplies and time. Price ranges between $9-$15 per serving*. 

How big is a serving?

Serving amounts are based on party-sized portions of 1.5 in. x 2 in. or smaller wedding-sized portions of approximately 1 in. x 2 in. Most of my cakes are 3-4 layers (about 5″- 8″ tall which can usually serves double the portions of typical two layers cakes).  (i.e. 8″ 1 tier round cake can served between 8-24. The cost will be 20 x $ + additional items = cake price).
