Why are your cakes more expensive than other local bakeries?

We do everything by hand, so the labor on our cakes is much higher than the average bakery. We don't use any plastic figures or decorations; they are molded and painted by hand. Everything needs to be done way in advance for decorations to be properly dried, painted and placed on cake.

Your payment will have to be made in full when placing the order and will also be Non-refundable.

Nice Notes

Hi Chef Veronica, I have to let you know that my sister loved her cake. She even cried. She wasn't suspecting anything so it was huge surprise for her. She loved it so much that she didn't wanna cut it and tasted it... but we made her :))) She already took a picture of it and posted it on Facebook. She even change her profile picture for a picture of her birthday cake :))) It was great cake... it looked amazing and tasted even better. Thank you very much!!!
