Do you Deliver? Outside of San Francisco?

We deliver within San Francisco 7-days a week using a company called Deliv. They offer two hour delivery windows: 9am-11am, 11am-1pm, 1pm-3pm and 3pm-5pm.

We deliver to Oakland/Berkeley area on Saturdays only. The delivery window is from 9am-1pm as we do this in conjunction with our Wholesale deliveries.



Why Don’t you Deliver Tiered Cakes?

Mainly because the delivery company we work with only offers 2 hour delivery windows and we cannot guarantee your cake would be delivered first.

Note** Our tiered cakes are not in an enclosed box; This is for safety of the cake. We recommend at least 2 people come to pick up tiered cakes.

 

Can I pick up my Custom Order from one of the Grocery Stores you Provide to?

Unfortunately no. We cannot ask our wholesale accounts to be responsible for custom orders. Pick up is from our Bakery in the Lower Haight district of San Francisco. The address is 299 Divisadero st. @ the corner of Page st.

Yes, we ship within the United States using priority USPS. We currently ship Cookie Sandwich Boxes and Gift Boxes only. Gift boxes will not include cupcakes, delicate items (ie: lemon bars) or items with fresh fruit.

What is the Difference between Tiered and Layered Cakes?

Our standard cakes are single or double layered. Each layer will be the same size in diameter. Cream will be between each layer. Tiered cakes consist of multiple layered cakes of different size stacked on top of each other (IE: A 6” Double Layered cake would be stacked on top of an 8” Double layered cake to form a tiered cake)

How do I Store my Goodies?

  • All of our products freeze beautifully.
  • Please do NOT refrigerate our cookies or cookie sandwiches. The condensation within the fridge does not work well with our cookies.
  • If you pick up a cake/cupcakes in the AM for an occasion in the evening, it will hold fine at a cool room temp within the box. We recommend cakes with flowers and fresh fruit be refrigerated.
  • If you do freeze or refrigerate our goodies we recommend setting out for at least 2 hours before serving.
