Frequently asked question

At Sweet Treasures, not only do we have creativity and pay close attention to details, but our passion goes beyond just an artistic cake! Every cake and cupcake we make uses the finest available ingredients and is baked fresh to order in small batches by our sweet team. Each one is then hand-decorated by that same small gang of cake-obsessed individuals, dedicated to making sure you enjoy the best cake experience ever! No short-cuts, no strange additives or preservatives, just incredibly delicious, utterly delectable, creative treats!!

For the most part, yes;  however we do change it up for seasonal items.  If you are craving a flavor you really want on that certain day of the week, we encourage you to place your order ahead of time.

Yes, we offer mini cupcakes by order only. We do not have them at the shop and they are sold by the dozen with a minimum of 2 dozens per order. The 24 pack would be an assortment of our most popular flavors.

Absolutely! However, we encourage you to pre-order because our selection does tend to sell out quickly :)

No, they are only available Monday-Wednesday and when we sell out, we don’t remake them the same day. If you’d like to place an order, you can do so at any time by calling us and we will gladly make them! If it’s not a day that we have them available, the minimum order would be a dozen. They are available in the following flavors: Vanilla, Red Velvet, and Chocolate Fudge.

Yes, we proudly offer about 3 different flavors on a daily basis. If there is a specific flavor you’d like, you can order it anytime with a minimum of a dozen.

Most orders can easily be placed over the phone or online–just let us know the date of your event, the number of servings desired, your budget, along with any of your ideas that you have in mind. If you’d like to discuss a cake with a cake consultant in person, it’s best to make an appointment to discuss your cake project–these can also be set up by phone or filling out the contact form.

In most cases, we can accommodate small orders of cookies and cupcakes a day before. However; theme cakes require planning, and hence 7-14 day is preferred.

Any cupcake flavor can be made into cake. You can choose from our online flavors and we’ll make it happen! Our dessert cakes range anywhere between $50-$85. You can also check out other bakery items and pricing on the pricing page.

Buttercream is what you’ll commonly see on many traditional cakes.  It is made primarily of butter, egg whites and sugar.  At Sweet Treasures, we make a Swiss and an Italian Meringue Buttercream which has a silky, delicious taste and will allow for a nice, smooth finish on your cake.  Fondant is a sugar paste, with a taste similar to marshmallow, that can be rolled out into a thin layer then draped over the cake, creating a beautifully smooth cover.  Fondant can also be used to make figures and other decorations (polka dots, stars, flowers, etc.) that can be placed on any type of cake.  Please note that fondant is placed over a layer of ganache in the flavor of your choosing–and this, combined with the three layers of filling in your cake, means that a fondant-covered cake will still taste like your desired flavor.!

While our basic vanilla and chocolate cupcakes and our buttercream do not contain any nuts, we do have nuts in the kitchen and make cupcakes that contain peanuts and tree nuts. Ask your server if you have any questions about ingredients in specific cupcakes. We take extra precautions to keep cupcakes with nuts away from those without, but in such a small workspace we cannot guarantee that any of our products are completely nut-free.

We use eggs in all our recipes, including meringue for our buttercream. Please consult your doctor to ensure that meringue is ok to eat.

While fondant and sugar is edible, many cake decorations (especially three-dimensional ones) require structural supports that are inedible, as well as securing with inedible supports.  We recommend removing such decorations and keeping them as souvenirs of your celebration!

Having a unique, personalized cake created for you is a custom service. We take a great deal of time creating the perfect cake which accurately reflects the theme, occasion and personality of the cake. Every cake is a unique piece of art. As with any handcrafted work, there is a high price to pay. Our custom, elaborate cakes start out at $300 and can be more depending on the details. Remember, you are not paying for just a cake but for a labor of love!

All Custom cakes require at least  7 – 14 days advance notice. However, do not hesitate to call us and we will gladly discuss your options!  Although we can accommodate most orders, we can only accept a limited number of orders weekly, and advance ordering ensures you will not miss out on your date.

Absolutely! Please feel free to share your idea and we will make sure to put it into action! Sweet Treasures is dedicated to customize cakes to each individual! We love to take on new creative challenges. More times than not, we will be able to accommodate your request.

You will need to pay 50% (non-refundable) of the cost at the time of order and the remaining balance 2 weeks before the event.

All food sales are final. All payments are non-refundable and if cancelled, store credit can be issued by our store manager.  Any cancellations must be made 10 days in advance and will result in a Store Credit only.  The 50% deposit is non-refundable. In the event of a cancellation after the cake has been worked on, it will be the responsibility of the customer to pay the total amount of the incurred expenses. A  20% cancellation fee for online orders will be applied in the event of an online order cancellation.  Due to the nature of our work, we purchase special materials to accommodate each order immediately after orders are placed.

It is advised to book at least 3-6 months in advance for a wedding cake to secure the dates. Sweet Treasures will block 1 whole week especially for your event in order to dedicate planning and creating the items necessary for the cake design. You will need to pay a non-refundable deposit  upon booking and the remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to the event.

Once we agree on a design and quote, you will be asked to pay the deposit. We will then begin the planning and all the needed preparations. You will also be more than welcome to take part in the design if you have a vision in mind. During the meeting, you will be asked to bring any inspirations with you such as an invitation, sash, centerpiece pictures, etc.. We would sketch an initial design together and then send you an estimate of how much the cake would cost.  Upon the initial “go”, we then would do your sketch on the computer and send you a colored one to also get a better picture of the final outcome.

Absolutely! If anything, the theme and invitation of your event will help inspire us to create a relative and unique deign! Many of our special cakes are inspired from an idea that originated from the invitation of the event.

Cake samplings are free with a 3 -tier wedding cake order. However; we do ask that you pay a $35 fee during the meeting consultation.  If you decide to go with Sweet Treasures, then that fee would go towards your cake!

Sweet Treasures can deliver specialty cakes for a fee of $35.00  within 5 miles from our location. Anything after 5 miles will be calculated per mile. You may choose to pick up your cake but you should make sure that you have a clean, flat surface to set cake on while driving. Once you leave with the cake, it is no longer Sweet Treasures’ responsibility for any damage that may occur.
