Cake Shipping
From Alabama to Wyoming, we pack our cakes so securely that even our FedEx driver is impressed.
 
For shipping, we quick freeze your cake and pack it with dry ice. You’re assured a perfect cake arrives even if there are a couple of bumps in the road while traveling across the country.

We ship cakes Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday only for overnight delivery the following day. Holiday shipping may also be adjusted to account for heavy volume throughout the country.
 
Effective Wednesday, March 5, 2014, we will ship only 7" layer cakes and bundt cakes. Because 9" cakes require a custom-made box for its larger size, we cannot accommodate special requests to send them.

Call 813-253-3838 by 12 noon for same-day shipping.
Cake price includes packaging. Shipping cost varies by shipping method, cake type, and delivery zone.

Our cake shipping box is the best there is. When yours arrives, you’ll see why. Every cake looks like it just left our decorators hands.

Cake Handling
 
For maximum enjoyment follow these instructions immediately upon receipt of your cake.
  • Open the box and remove the dry ice.
If you're not serving it in the next 24 hours:
  • Leave the cake in the dome.
  • Place in the freezer.
  • 24 hours before serving, remove cake dome and refrigerate.
If you plan to serve your cake within the next 24 hours:
  • Immediately remove the dome.
  • Refrigerate for best appearance. We do not recommend thawing at room temperature because it will cause the frosting to crack and moisture to accumulate on the frosting.
  • The cake should be ready to serve in about 16 – 24 hours.
  • Just before serving, remove the black skewer which keeps the cake steady during shipping.
 
Shipping Policies
 
Orders placed Monday - Wednesday by 12:00 p.m. EST can be shipped the same business day for next day delivery.
 
We ship via FedEx Express for delivery Tuesday through Thursday to all 50 states. We are unable to ship to P.O. boxes or APO/FPO addresses.
 
All packages are shipped "No Signature Required.” If no one is available to receive the package, it will be left outside the door. For secured buildings, the package will be returned to the local FedEx facility after first attempting to contact the recipient. If a signature is required, there is a $5.00 surcharge. We cannot be responsible for cakes shipped "Signature Required” if the driver cannot, for any reason, deliver.
 
The weather is always a factor. We carefully monitor weather conditions before we provide the cake to FedEx. If your cake may be impacted due to weather conditions, we will follow your instructions to ship or not. If you want to ship regardless of the weather warnings, we cannot guarantee the quality of your cake or the timeliness of its delivery.
 
Shipping Options
 
When choosing your desired arrival date and shipping method, keep in mind holidays and the fact that your cake will take up to 24 hours to thaw.
 
We ship Standard and Priority for next business day delivery for all cakes. As a cost savings, we offer Two Day for second business day delivery for bundt cakes only that are shipped on Monday or Tuesday but not Wednesday. Our goal is to have all cakes delivered by Thursday of each week. By doing so, we have one extra weekday to coordinate re-deliveries due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
 
Delivery times for business, residential, and rural addresses vary.
 
To ensure you enjoy the best possible product:
  • All 7" layer cakes are shipped frozen. Bundt cakes are NOT shipped frozen and may be served immediately.
  • You should allow 16 – 24 hours for your cake to thaw uncovered in your refrigerator prior to serving.
Order Modification
 
If you need to change or cancel your order, please provide us with at least 24 hours notice. If less than 24 hours remain, please call us immediately. We understand that plans can change on short notice; however, we do ask that you pay for any of your selections we’ve begun to prepare in anticipation of your cake shipping.
 
Order Tracking
 
When your order ships, you will receive an email from FedEx. This email, with a return address of "ShippingUpdate", includes your FedEx package tracking number. Use the link in that email to check delivery status of your package. If you have questions about the tracking, please contact us at 813-253-3838.
