Order Cakes!

Please read all of the following information before emailing us to place your order! Thank you so much!!

 

Now booking cake orders for May & June! Please note that we are only booking orders one month out at this time so orders for June will be accepted starting on May 1st, and so on. 

Orders for cakes must be placed at a minimum of one full week (7 days) in advance from your need-by date! Slots tend to book up fast so please note that reaching out one week before your need-by date does not guarantee that we will have availability and your order won't be confirmed until we respond, send over an invoice, and said invoice is paid prior to pickup. Note that holiday weekends such as Mother's Day, etc will likely be completely booked up before the 7 day mark, so the earlier you reach out, the better! Orders sent less than 7 days in advance will not be accepted--please plan accordingly so we don't have to break your heart! 

To place an order for a cake, please see the set menu below and email us at piepiemydarling@gmail.com (NO instagram DMs please) with your full name, phone number, desired cake size & flavor, and the time and date (in between our set pickup hours listed below) you would like to pick up. 

If we are able to accept your order, we will email you back with an invoice that must be paid prior to pickup. Due to the high volume of emails, it may take us a few days to get back to you and we thank you in advance for your patience! Note that your order will not be confirmed until you hear back from us and your invoice is sent/payment is received. 

PRE-ORDER PICKUP INFO:

We offer pre-order pickups at our bakery, located at 2636 W Chicago Ave in West Town, on SATURDAYS in between 11am and 3pm. Pickups are limited to just Saturdays at this time due to our limited staff--thanks for your understanding while we continue to pivot during this pandemic! At this time we do not offer delivery. 

Cancellations must be made a minimum of 48 hours before your set pickup date. Please note that there are no refunds for last minute cancellations, forgotten pickups, and no-shows--your cake has a limited shelf life and we are making it and holding it just for you! Please plan accordingly and take care to show up on time to pick up--we close at 3pm Saturdays and are closed completely on Sundays! 

We are a small team and can only do so much per week, but we appreciate the overwhelming amount of support and interest coming our way! Thank you so much!!

CAKE MENU: 

Below is our current cake menu which changes month to month! We are not a custom cake bakery and instead find joy through baking up our own original cake designs & creations. In order to streamline the ordering process, cakes come exactly as listed and we aren't offering custom deco or writing on cakes at this time.

6" babycake: (2 layers, serves 4-6)

8" full sized cake: (3 layers, serves 14-16)

All of our cakes are 100% vegan! We do not offer anything gluten free or soy free at this time. Some of our cakes contain peanuts & tree nuts so please note that our bakery is NOT a nut-free facility & our cakes are not safe for those with severe nut allergies!

How to store your cake: Uncut, our cakes will stay fresh & moist for 4-5 days, so if you schedule to pick up your cake a few days before your need-by date, no worries! Store your cake in the fridge and let it sit on the counter for an hour or so before serving--we think the frosting tastes best when it's fluffy and a little soft! 

Once your cake is cut, cover the exposed part of the cake with plastic wrap, or slice and store slices in air-tight containers in the fridge!

Our cakes also freeze very well for up to one month--just plastic wrap the box the cake is in and place in the freezer. Transfer it back into the fridge one full day before you plan on digging in so it has time to fully thaw. You can also slice the cake up and store individual slices in air-tight containers in the freezer! Note that our sprinkles may get a bit melty after being frozen & thawed so we don't suggest freezing sprinkle cakes! In addition, the goth rainbow cake should not be frozen as we've found it can affect the appearance of the frosting once thawed. 

For the cleanest, prettiest cake slices, use a hot knife and wipe down your knife in between each cut!
