Here's our most common questions, ANSWERED!
HOW FAR AHEAD DO I NEED TO PLACE A CUSTOM ORDER?
A good rule of thumb for ordering a special occasion custom cake is 2 to 4 weeks - depending on the season. That being said, it doesn't hurt to call and ask if you need a last-minute cake. Oftentimes, we can squeeze in last minute orders. FYI, May often books up early as there are MANY graduations, Mother's Day and other important events. Therefore, it's best to get on the calendar EARLY! The Christmas season also books up early.
A good rule of thumb for wedding cakes is 6 months to a year. Once again, it doesn't hurt to call and ask if you need it in less time.
HOW LONG DO BAKERY ITEMS STAY FRESH?
Most baked goods keep well at room temperature. That goes for cookies and brownies (which can be stored in an airtight container for up to five to seven days) as well as muffins, breads, and pastries.
DO YOU DELIVER?
The short answer - YES! We do not have a dedicated delivery person, so I try to fit them in as I can.
We have delivered wedding cakes all over the state of Kansas - as far as Dodge City, Downs, and Olathe! (All for a price of course!) Prices vary on distance.
DO YOU SHIP?
Yes! However, not all pastries ship well. Luckily, our cookies, cinnamon rolls and snack bags ship GREAT! If there is someone you want to spoil who lives far away, we are happy to help! Shipping prices are dependent on UPS, FedEx and USPS charges.
HOW MUCH OF A DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED FOR A CUSTOM ORDER?
We do require a $25 non-refundable retainer to hold the date, however that payment goes towards the cost of the order. It can be made in the store, mail or electronically.
I JUST GOT ENGAGED AND NEED TO BOOK A WEDDING CAKE!
Let me start by saying congratulations! I would be honored to help you. I really prefer to sit down with my couples so we can get to know each other, go over all the necessary details and create the cake of your dreams. Call 620-888-YUMM or message me through here or Facebook, so we can schedule a consultation.
WHAT IF I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY?
Our products are created in a facility that uses nuts, soy, dairy, wheat, tree nuts and eggs so may contain traces of all of the above. We can make specialty dietary cakes and desserts such as gluten-free, sugar- free, eggless, dairy-free and vegan. Please contact us for flavors, pricing, and additional information. Please keep in mind while we do our best to separate desserts with special dietary restrictions. However, please note that we do use dairy, eggs, sugar and animal products throughout our bakery.
ARE YOU A FULL-SERVICE BAKERY, OR DO YOU ONLY OFFER CAKES?
We are a full-service bakery. We make a variety of breads, cinnamon rolls, cookies, cupcakes, brownies and most other bakery products. We do not sell donuts, though.
HOW DO I PLACE AN ORDER?
You may place an order through our website, messaging us on Facebook or Instagram, calling the bakery at (620) 888-YUMM or by visiting our bakery at 205 S. Main in Hutchinson, Ks.
HOW MANY PEOPLE DO YOUR CAKES SERVE?
Please refer to the price schedule for cake serving sizes.
HOW DO YOU RECOMMEND CUTTING YOUR CAKES?
You will need a sharp knife, cutting board and serving spatula. If you have time to chill your cake before cutting, you can make slicing even easier by running your knife under hot water before using. Be sure to dry the knife thoroughly, then cut your slices while the knife is still slightly warm to the touch. The warm knife will cut through the frosting like butter! The slices will be neat and clean, leaving all the frosting exactly where it's supposed to be. Be sure to wipe the knife clean between slices. It’s normal for the knife to collect frosting and crumbs as you cut cake (even a tomato knife to a degree). But your knife is more likely to snag and smear if you let the frosting build up.
Go in 1.5 inches from the outside edge, and cut a straight line through the sponge, whether it is a round or square cake. Lay the long slice of cake on a cutting board, then slice that row into even 1-inch pieces of cake. Use a serving spatula to place slices on a plate. Repeat the process by moving over 1.5 inches and slicing through the entire tier again. Do this on every cake tier, and you’ll be blessed with generous servings for all of your loved ones.
