Custom Cakes

The information below will provide you with base pricing, plus information on specialty flavors, extras, and décor. Contact me to design your custom cake! 

To get your custom cake priced, please text me 240-297-4484!

Bookings need to be made at least one week prior to your event/pickup date, but the further in advance the better. Payment in full is required to confirm your order.

Cake Booking Process:
  • Text 240-297-4484 to check on my availability for your event date and start on your order!
    Why do I ask you to text me? I like to keep all my customer communications in one place. I add you to my contacts and can refer to all the order details and prior communications easily. If you would rather speak on the phone, please text me first to arrange a convenient time and after we chat, I’ll text everything we decided on to you so that we both have it in writing. This helps a lot to keep your order correct!
  • We’ll discuss your event, the number of servings needed, size and style of cake, etc.
  • Look over my Custom Cakes pricing information below to help with your cake size and flavor decisions.
  • I’ll get back to you with a customized quote that includes the description of your cake flavors, size, design, extra elements (such as fondant pieces, candies, edible images, and toppers), the estimated number of servings, date of pickup, and total cost.
  • Check your quote over carefully and confirm I have all details correct, especially a name, age, or other personal elements going on the cake. Ask for changes, additions, or how to modify cost by taking some design elements off, if needed.
  • To book your cake (and hold your date), either full payment or a 50% non-refundable deposit is required. The remaining balance will be due 5-9 days prior to your pickup date. (I’ll let you know the exact due date, which depends on when I need to order supplies and begin working.) If you must cancel or reschedule your event, your 50% deposit will be held as credit for a future or rescheduled order, as it fits into my schedule (dates are not guaranteed when rescheduling). No cancellations or reschedules after the final payment is made, as supplies will be on order and some kitchen work will have begun.
  • Payment is accepted by Venmo @designedtoeat (first-time payment conf. code: 3096), Cashapp $designedtoeat, Zelle, or cash drop off at an agreed-upon date/time. I will confirm receipt of your payment via text.

Custom cakes are baked with from-scratch, high-quality ingredients. Recipes have been tested and modified over time to deliver the best tasting, moist cakes and deliciously decadent fillings. It is difficult to put a value on the time and care that goes into the planning, design, and artistic decorating of each cake. As a career artist and graphic designer turned baker, it is my mission to create cakes and treats that truly are Designed To Eat.
