FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Whew! There's a lot of information here, but the content
below should answer most of your questions.
Sugar And Magic Cake Company is a licensed home bakery and proudly bakes all of our cakes from scratch. Therefore, each cake is individually made to order based on your requirements. Cakes are stacked two (2") layers high and frosted with either a silky buttercream icing or fondant covered buttercream icing. Our cake sizes range from 6" to 12", as well as 12" x 18" sheet cake sizes. We require a minimum of 14 days notice for all custom orders. For optimum quality and freshness, we recommend serving your cake within 24 hours as our cakes are baked from scratch and do not have a long shelf life.
Custom Sculpted Cakes:
Regardless of size, our custom sculpted cake pricing starts at $300. This price varies depending on the complexity and detail details of your cake. We require a minimum of 14 day notice for all custom orders. Sometimes a smaller cake may take longer to design and create than a larger one; and therefore, it will be priced higher as it all depends on the complexity of your order. However, never worry, if you can dream it, we can create it!
Custom Wedding Cakes
Regardless of size, the minimum order for a Wedding Cake is $300. Pricing depends entirely upon the detail, materials and how labor intensive your cake is, i.e., whether your wedding cake includes items such as custom handcrafted sugar flowers. Delivery and set-up charges are included with the price quoted.
