 CAKE PICK-UP INFO:

Sunday/Monday: CLOSED

Tues-Friday: 12pm-3pm 

Saturday: 11am-3pm

***Pickup hours will be extended to 5pm on Friday, December 23rd for holiday pre-order pickups!***

 

Cakes must be picked up at our bakery--we do not offer delivery at this time.

 

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 (in between our set pickup days/hours) you would like to pick up. Once you're in the books, we'll send over an invoice which must be paid to confirm your order. 

 

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).

  

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 since your cake has a limited shelf life and we are baking it fresh from scratch and holding it until closing time just for you! 

We are not able to stay open past our set hours to accommodate late pickups. Please plan accordingly and take care to show up on time to pick up, and if anything comes up on pickup day, email us asap (no social media DM's please) and we’ll do our best to work with you to arrange an alternate pickup date. 

 

 

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 12-18)

 

All of our cakes are 100% vegan, meaning they are dairy, egg, and animal product-free! 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.

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!  

***Take care to keep your cake cool in transit--our cakes are frosted with vegan buttercream which is delicate and will start to melt if left out of the fridge for more than 15-30 minutes in warm conditions***

How to store your cake: 

All of our cakes should be stored in the fridge!

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! Keep your cake refrigerated and let it sit on the counter at room temp for about 15-30 minutes before serving (unless it's super hot out)--we think the frosting tastes best when it's a little soft.

Cakes frosted with chocolate buttercream taste especially better if the frosting is allowed at least 30 minutes out of the fridge to soften up!

DO NOT leave your cake out on the counter overnight, leave it outside for more than 5-10 minutes or in your car during warm or hot/humid 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 or the trunk. 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! Do not thaw your cake straight from the freezer at room temp--it will cause condensation on the top/sides of the cake. 

Note that our vegan sprinkles may get a bit melty if they sit in the fridge for more than 4-5 days or after being frozen & thawed so we don't suggest freezing sprinkle cakes or picking them up several days in advance if appearance is important to you! The pretzels on the chocolate peanut butter pretzel cake may get soggy when frozen as well. 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!
