If you can dream it, Pastries by Design can make it into a cake! A set of golf clubs for dad, a favorite team logo for the groom, a basket of lilies for mom… the possibilities are endless! Custom cakes are priced individually according to the design chosen. Detailed sugar designs can significantly increase the price of your cake. We love a good challenge so don’t be shy and bring in your ideas!

Please help us to avoid mistakes:
- Review and sign your order so there is no room for misunderstandings. Most mistakes happen when taking the order, due to missing details about color, design or shape.
- Be specific. If you want blue fondant, please tell us what kind of blue! We have color books available for you to consult. Although final colors may be off a little bit due to the nature of the product, we always try to match the color you ask for.
Also please read the terms and conditions on special orders.
