Order Cakes!

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

 

We are now booking dates through December 18th only! Christmas/holiday orders will be off of a set menu that is in the works and coming soon!

 

***Note that we will be taking a mental health break in January to rest and re-calibrate and will not be able to accommodate any cake orders during this time!  Many of our cakes freeze great, so feel free to book your cake in December if you had your heart set on a cake for January and we'll fill you about our recommended storage instructions. Thanks so much in advance for your understanding!!**

Due to the current demand, orders for whole cakes must be placed a MINIMUM of one full week (7 days) in advance from your desired pick up date! Note that reaching out one week out does not guarantee that we will have availability and your order will only be placed once we respond to confirm availability, send over an invoice, and said invoice is paid prior to pickup. Some dates may be completely booked up before the 7 day mark, so the earlier you reach out, the better! Orders sent less than 7 full days in advance will not be accepted-- please plan accordingly if your heart is set on a cake for a specific day

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

It may take us a couple of days to get back to you due to the high volume of emails and we thank you so much in advance for your patience! Note that we respond to emails Monday-Friday and do not check our inbox on weekends (unless pertaining to a cake being picked up that day).

 

 CAKE PICK-UP 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. If you can't pick up on a Saturday, just let us know in your email and we can fit you in during our weekly production days/hours! Note that we are closed completely on Sundays. Cakes must be picked up at our bakery--we do not offer delivery at this time.

 

CANCELLATION/NO-SHOW POLICY:

Cancellations must be made a minimum of 48 hours (two full days) before your set pickup date. There are no refunds for last minute cancellations, forgotten pickups, and no-shows--your cake has a limited shelf life and we are baking it fresh from scratch and holding it until closing time 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. If anything comes up on pickup day, please email us asap so we can arrange an alternate pickup date!

If kept refrigerated, most of our cakes will stay fresh and moist for 4-5 days and also freeze great. Scroll to the very bottom of this page for storage instructions and feel free to email us if you have any questions!  

 

CAKE MENU: 

Below is our current cake menu which changes seasonally!

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 so we can serve as many of you as possible, cakes come exactly as listed and we do not offer custom decorations or writing on cakes at this time. 

Cake sizes:

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

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

All of our cakes are 100% vegan, meaning they are dairy, egg, and animal product-free! All of our cakes DO contain wheat, soy, & gluten. Some of our cakes contain peanuts & tree nuts so please note that our bakery is NOT a nut-free facility and our cakes are not safe for those with severe nut allergies! Feel free to email us with questions if there are certain allergens you're trying to avoid. We are more concerned with keeping you safe than selling you cake!

In order to streamline orders during our busiest season of the year, pride flag cakes (goth mermaid, trans is beautiful, pan, ace, etc) will not be available to order during the months of November & December. We only have one baker on staff who can decorate these style of cakes (hiii, it's me heather, the owner of pie pie!) and I will have A LOT on my plate during the holiday months and will be spread very thin. We are still on the prowl for experienced cake decorators to add to our team, but in the meantime, we need to limit the amount of time/labor intensive cakes we take on. Thanks SO much in advance for your understanding!!

  

How to store your cake:  

Uncut and refrigerated, our cakes will stay fresh & moist for 4-5 days, so if you need to schedule your pick up a few days before your need-by date, no worries! Store your cake in the fridge and let it sit on the counter at room temp for about 15 minutes or so before serving (unless it's super hot out)--we think the frosting tastes best when it's a little soft! 

DO NOT leave your cake out on the counter overnight or in your car during warm or hot weather--it will melt! 

When transporting your cake, make sure it's on an even, level surface such as someone's lap or the floor of the front passengers seat. If you leave the cake on a tilted surface, you'll end up with a tilted cake! 

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 vegan sprinkles may get a bit melty after being frozen & thawed so we don't suggest freezing sprinkle cakes if appearance is important to you! The pretzels on the chocolate peanut butter pretzel cake may get soggy when frozen as well. The goth rainbow, goth mermaid, and other flag cakes should not be frozen as we've found it can affect the appearance of the frosting once thawed. Aside from that, the majority of our cakes freeze extremely well and you can feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions about that! 

For the cleanest, prettiest cake slices, slice your cake right out of the fridge when it's cold using a hot knife and wipe down your knife in between each cut!
