FAQ

  • How early should I place my order?
    Your cake/cupcake/custom treat should be ordered as soon as you have finalized all of the details of your event (colors, theme, design, amount of servings, etc.). Since we are usually booked a few weeks (or sometimes earlier) in advance, we do encourage you to order early. 4-6 weeks notice is usually recommended, but we are happy to fit you in when our schedule permits. We do require a minimum of 2 weeks notice for all cake orders. This allows us time to order any necessary supplies for your cake and to make any specialty decorations in advance. If you try to order later than 2 weeks, we can not guarantee date availability. With less than 2 weeks notice we may not be able to create your design as sometimes certain designs require toppers and handmade items be made in advance, and supplies to be ordered and shipped in. We specialize in handmade edible art, so people who book with us are usually planning parties and events well ahead of time, not at the last minute. We love our customers, and would be honored to create a custom cake for you. But don’t be mad at us if you wait until the last minute, or want a “simple cake”, because we are booked. We take as many orders as we can fit in with our already busy schedules.
  • Do you deliver?
    Yes! Delivery and setup is highly suggested for all cakes over 2 tiers, and may be required for some cakes based on the design. Delivery is the best way to ensure that your custom creation makes it safely to your event. We also carry a bag of emergency cake supplies in case anything goes wrong. Please note: Additional charges will apply for delivery outside of the city limits of New Castle County, Delaware. Pickup is available for all orders and limited delivery is available within New Castle County, Delaware for a fee starting at $40. Delivery to surrounding counties is on a limited basis. When inquiring we will need to know your exact venue address so the delivery charge can be factored into your quote. We do not have a storefront. We are a home-based cottage food business and do not schedule face-to-face meetings, with the exception of paid wedding cake tastings.
  • How much is a custom cake? 
    Each custom cake’s price will vary depending on size, detail, intricacy & complexity of your desired design. Minimum of 30 servings (9" cake) required for all custom cake orders. For custom cakes, we have a $100 minimum for all orders. Again, as with all custom cakes the price will vary depending on size, detail, intricacy & complexity. We also offer basic cupcakes for $35.00 per dozen, 1 flavor per dozen with large cake orders. Cupcakes with special designs or details are priced via a quote. On rare occasion, we will post cupcake sample boxes on our Instagram page at a discounted price. These sales are not our normal pricing, but a fun way for customers to try new flavors! **Our prices are subject to change at any time*
  • Do you offer vegan and gluten-free pastries?
    Yes, we do make gluten-free cakes and cupcakes. Our gluten-free cakes contain eggs and dairy products. Ana's Cakery is not a gluten-free facility, so if you have a gluten allergy, please choose a bakery dedicated to your needs. We can make vegan AND gluten-free cakes/cupcakes, please specify these needs in the bottom section of order inquiry form.
