Good cake isn’t cheap and cheap cake isn’t good. 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. Cakes are customized to your specific request and made fresh to order.

About our custom cakes

Our cakes are 2-full cake layers that are torted (4 layers of cake and 3 layers of filling 4 inches tall). Each custom cake order is presented on an attractive sturdy cake/drum board in the color of your choice to match your cake. We only specialize in ROUND cakes. We DO NOT make carved, shaped, cut out, sculpted cakes or cupcake cakes. See a gallery of our cakes  here.

When should custom cake orders be placed?

We ask for at least one to two weeks’ notice for all custom orders, depending on the level of difficulty and how many servings you are requesting, to be placed on our calendar along with full payment. This is not a guarantee that there will be availability to get your order on our calendar since we are usually booked out a few weeks in advance. We do encourage early ordering to ensure your order can be accommodated and we do our best to accommodate last minute requests when possible.

What will the price of my cake be?

There are many considerations we look at when quoting a price for your custom cake. In addition to the cake size, 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. 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. Please contact us for tiered cake pricing.

How can I order a custom cake?

Currently, we are only accepting orders via our online Custom Cake Quote Form   for all custom cake requests. Filling out an order quote form does not commit you to ordering nor confirms your order. Once your quote form is received Sweet Themes Bakery will make every effort to contact you as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that we might not get to quote requests received on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays as we are closed on these days. Orders are not confirmed until details are verified, a quote is given and payment in full is received.

 

ALLERGY/SPECIAL INGREDIENT REQUESTS

Even though we are a specialty bakery that takes custom orders, we do not offer bakery items that are Gluten-Free, sugarless, dairy free, egg free or VEGAN. Sweet Themes Bakery produces bakery goods that use flour, butter, sugar, eggs, milk, peanuts and/or tree nuts and we do our best not to cross contaminate work surfaces. However, if you are concerned about any type of allergy, we strongly advise against placing an order.

 

ARTISTIC DISCLAIMER 

All our products are hand-made in house. Decorative finishes are done by hand and are subject to the artistic interpretation of the decorator. It is very helpful if you have pictures for inspiration so we can get an idea of what you’re envisioning.  However, we make no claims for exact duplication or replication of the work done by other artists. Per request we can coordinate the color scheme to fit your event theme. If you would like fresh flowers, we will do our best to find the type of flower you would like. However, the flower colors/type will be based on seasonal availability. We reserve the right to take and use our own photos of your cake(s) to use for marketing and promotional purposes without compensation to you.

 

PAYMENT

All custom orders require payment in full to be placed on our schedule, whether your order will be picked at our retail store or prior to delivering your order. Your order is not officially placed until payment has been made in full and is non-refundable and non-transferable. Prices and quotes are set for 30 days and are subject to change as market pricing changes.

 

CANCELLATIONS AND REFUND

Please be sure you want your custom cake before paying for your order. We do not offer refunds, only In Store Credit will be given. Credit amount will depend on when the order has been cancelled prior to your pickup date. We reserve the right to cancel the order if the payment in full has not been received on time. No refunds will be given for cancelled orders, nor will payments be transferable. Each order is custom, variations in color, design and detail are to be expected and refunds will not be issued for this type of discrepancy. We reserve the right to take artistic interpretation on all orders.

 

TRANSPORTING YOUR ORDER

For orders that are not delivered, you are responsible for transporting your order safely to your destination. Sweet Themes Bakery is not responsible for orders once they leave our premises. Keep in mind that cakes are very fragile, and damages can happen if not handled properly, such as cracks, smudges, melted icing, etc. You will need a flat surface in your vehicle, such as the floorboard, so the cake is kept level to be safely transported. Cakes should never be placed on a seat or held in a passenger’s lap. It is best to turn on the air conditioning in the vehicle. We are not responsible for any damage occurring to the custom order during your own transport, set-up, or any time thereafter. We give instructions on how to carry, transport, and store your cake upon pick-up.  Sweet Themes Bakery is not responsible for any damage to the cake after delivery or after setup is complete. The customer is responsible for providing an appropriate environment for their order(s).

Our delivery area is from Downtown Seattle to North Tacoma, East to Issaquah; fee starts at $100+ and is based on delivery destination. Delivery in the Downtown Kent and Local Kent; fee starts at $35+ and is based on delivery destination. Additional Fee for Sunday and Monday Deliveries if available. PLEASE NOTE: Someone must be available to accept delivery.
