At Sweet Themes Bakery, we are proud to offer moist, delicious cakes, freshly baked for you using quality ingredients including an Italian Meringue-style butter cream and high quality butter and eggs.  See a gallery of our cakes here. In addition to custom cakes, we also offer custom cupcakes, cake pops and cake truffles in a variety of flavors.

Please order cakes at least 10 business days in advance.

How big should my cake be?

All cakes are 2-layers torted (4 layers of cake and 3 layers of filling 4 inches tall) except for full sheet cakes which have only one layer of filling between 2 full cake layers. Cakes are presented on an attractive sturdy cake/drum board in the color of your choice to match your cake. Standard decoration is included i.e. top & bottom borders, writing, flowers. Other decorating options are available for an additional charge i.e. butter cream piped designs, decorated sugar pearls and sprinkles, fondant cake draping, fondant cut out decorations, gum paste flowers, etc. Choose your cake size (or serving quantity), cake flavor, filling flavor and outer icing flavor. The number of servings listed is intended as a guide only. If your portions are larger then you will have fewer servings.

What flavors of frosting and cake are available? 

We’d be happy to discuss flavor combinations with you.

What is the difference between Italian Butter Cream (IMBC) and American Butter Cream (AMBC)? 

Italian Butter Cream (IMBC) is cooked, while simple American Buttercream (AMBC) is not. Italian Butter Cream (IMBC) incorporates a simple syrup of water and sugar with egg whites, butter, salt, vanilla and an optional addition of flavoring. American Butter Cream (AMBC) incorporates butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk, and depending on the recipe, cream cheese and flavoring.

How much will my cake cost?

There are many considerations we look at when quoting a price for your custom cake. We look at the level of detail (labor) required to produce the end result in addition to the amount of time required to make your cake. If the cake is minimal in detail the price typically remains at the base price. However, if there are intricate details and numerous flowers or other custom details the price will more than likely be higher.

If you’re on a tight budget we understand, and would love to work with you as well. We may suggest simplified designs that will require less fondant/gum paste work while still achieving the sophistication, drama and impact you desire at a lesser price point. Please let us know your budget when contacting us.

When emailing for a price quote, attach as many pictures as you’d like, as this will help us determine the look you’re trying to achieve. We can then create a cake uniquely for you. If you’ve found a picture of a cake that you would like us to create exactly please email that as well.

Photo Edible Images

Yes we are able to make photo edible images on your cake for an additional price, starting at $15.  **PLEASE NOTE:  Photographs or logos are printed images on edible sugar paper using edible ink from an ink jet printer. Images will be printed “AS IS” from the .jpeg file(s) provided by the customer. We do not have a library of graphics for customers to choose from. We are not graphic designers and do not have the computer programs/capability to change colors, writing fonts, objects, etc. on the provided .jpeg file. Colors may vary from the original picture(s) when printed from ink jet printer.
