About Our Cakes

Pastries by Design is a natural bakery that uses fresh ingredients and makes every part of each cake from scratch. From the silky smooth buttercream made with real butter from a local farm, to our rich chocolate cake, you will surely taste the difference.

All our cakes are four layers with three layers of filling (including the sheet cakes) and are baked fresh to order.

Decorated Cakes

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 note that to ensure that the design is perfectly customized to Pastries by Design standards:

  • Orders must be placed a minimum of 72 hours in advance. It is not uncommon for busy seasons to book up weeks in advance. 
  • Please note that depending on how intrincate is the design of your cake, we will require more time to prepare all the decorations for your cake (3D sugar characters standing up, sugar flowers, details for carved cakes. etc.)
  • Please ask for our front store cakes for last minute orders.
  • If you have your heart set on a cake from Pastries by Design, it is best to place your order soon as you have a date set for your event. A 50% deposit is required at the time of booking reserve your order.


Note that you will get less or more servings from your cake depending on how big you cut the slices.
