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 frosting 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 one to two 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.

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.

TRANSPORTING AND STORING YOUR CAKE

The key to successfully transporting and storing your cake is to keep it cool and to drive carefully! If it gets too warm, it may start to melt or slide. Cakes and desserts (except for cookies) should be kept refrigerated (not frozen) until close to serving time. Mousse fillings are NOT recommended for events where the cake will be displayed outdoors, particularly during the warmer months. If you have questions regarding your specific situation please ask a member of our staff and we will be happy to help you find the best option for your event!

Cakes should be transported on a completely flat surface (e.g. the cargo area or floorboards of your car) with the AC running during the warm months. Please note that your lap or the trunk are not ideal as they are generally warmer areas. Also, many car seats are angled, not flat, and do not keep the cake completely level. If they are the only option we recommend putting a rolled up towel in the “crack” of the seat to level it out.  It’s also a good idea to make cake pick up your last stop before heading home or to your event. Please note that we cannot be responsible for the well being of your cake once you have left the bakery.

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION

We take pride in our work and want all of our customers to be delighted as we are! We strive to deliver an excellent experience for every customer; however, we are only human and mistakes can occur. If there is something wrong with your order we want to make right. Please let us know before you leave the bakery so that we may address it. If you discover a quality issue once you have left the bakery please save any uneaten items and bring them back so that they may aid in diagnosing the issue. Thank you.
