Custom Cakes

Ordering Information

We pride ourselves on making cakes that taste as good as they look! All of our cakes include four layers of cake with three layers of filling between the layers in each tier, plus icing on the outside (except smash cakes, which are two layers inside). Customize your cake by picking a cake flavor, a filling flavor and a frosting — or go with one of our tried-and-true customer favorites!  The base prices include a coordinating buttercream frosting border at the bottom of the cake and buttercream writing (e.g. Happy Birthday Bob!) on top; additional decor is available at an additional cost based on the complexity.

Our gallery includes just a sampling of the thousands of cakes we have made. If  you don’t see the cake of your dreams there, never fear — our talented cake designers are up for any challenge! Send your inspiration picture to dreambakeryaustin@gmail.com (please include your name, phone number, number of people you are serving, and the date of your event) and we will get back to you within 48 hours to discuss your cake.

While we prefer a week’s notice for custom cakes (especially for weekends), we can often accommodate shorter lead times so please give us a call to see what’s possible in your particular situation.  When you contact us, please be prepared to tell us the date of your event, how many people you are planning to serve, what flavors you prefer, and what kind of décor you have in mind so that we can provide accurate pricing information.

Last minute event? We make cakes and pastries daily for our shop and can add a simple message such as Happy Birthday to the top – call 512-219-1235 or come by to see what we have available. We can also have your cake delivered for an additional fee.

Booking and Cancellation Policies: We limit the number of custom cakes we make each day in order to ensure we can devote the appropriate time and attention to every order. We require a 50% deposit when you book your cake. Once you’ve made your deposit, we reserve that day and time for you and start making the necessary preparations (e.g. buying materials). For that reason, a fee will apply for orders that are cancelled after the deposit has been made. For wedding cakes, the fee is 20% of the total charge for cakes cancelled up until 4 weeks prior to the event. No refunds are available for wedding cakes cancelled less than 4 weeks prior.  For other custom cakes, the fee is 20% of the total for orders cancelled up until 5 days prior to delivery date. No refund is available for cakes cancelled less than 5 days prior. Thank you for your understanding.
