Price Guide

It is almost impossible to set out a  price list for customized sculpted cakes, simply because there are so many variables to consider. We take into account the design and complexity, and to a varying degree; number of servings.

A smaller cake with many figurines, which translates to longer time and labor spent, will be priced higher than a large cake with just a 2D design.

For customized sculpted fondant cakes. Budget according to the number to serve. The smaller the serving size, the more expensive per head. Logic being, the effort spent sculpting a small or big cake could be similar.

For party of 10 to 15 - budget $20 upwards per serving 
For party of 15 to 25 - budget $10 upwards per serving 
For party of 30 to 40 - budget $8 upwards per serving 
For party of 50 to 60 - budget $ 7 upwards per serving 

- Our smallest single tier is a 5" round (serves 5-10) - $180 upwards
- Our smallest two tier is a 4" round over 6" round (serves 20-25) - $280 upwards. 
- A 5" round over 7" round (portioned to serve 25-30) - $330 upwards
- A 6" round over 8" round (portioned to serve 35-40) two tiered cake - $380 upwards
- A 7" round over 9" round (portioned to serve 40-50) - $430 upwards
- Our smallest three tier is 4" round over 6" round over 8" round (serves 40-50) - $480 upwards
- Our smallest 3D sculpted cakes (cars, cameras, bags etc) serves 25-30 - budget $300 upwards
We cannot price our cakes by weight simply because different designs result in different weights. A 20 portion cake for one design can weigh from 2kg to 6kg depending on the design. ONLY off-the-shelf cake shops price cakes by weight because they make standardized cakes.

A general cupcake price guide would be:
1) Standard Size cupcakes with a buttercream swirl $4
2) Cupcakes with a buttercream swirl and a small fondant topper $5 to $8
3) Fondant covered cupcakes / cupcakes with buttercream swirls with 2D designs cost between $8 to $12. 
4) Fondant covered cupcakes with 3D designs cost from $15 upwards.

HOLIDAY SURCHARGES
Orders on Christmas eve, Christmas and two days after, New Year's Eve, New Year's Day and two days after, Chinese New Year's Eve, Chinese New Year's Day and 3 days after all carry an additional 10% surcharge or $50, whichever is higher

The additional charges for 3 days after the event is because we have to prepare for your order on the days of the holidays

MINIMUM ORDER
Our minimum order amount is $180 and all quotes includes delivery

Do email us at enquiries@celebrate-with-cake.com for queries. Include:

1. The date of your party (so that we do not start a discussion for a date we cannot commit),
2. Number of guests to serve (so that we can suggest a cake size to suit your party)
3. Desired design or theme so that we can better advice.

ORDER ADVICE
A cake is not just a food item. What is always on a birthday or anniversary celebration photo? It is always people with the cake. So do take that into consideration. Get a cake that will look good with you and your guests in pictures.


SAMPLING
It will be similar to going to a restaurant and seeing an interesting menu. The only way to try is to order. A restaurant does not allow you to sample their steak before you order the main course, so it is with us. We do not offer cake tasting just like restaurants do not offer sampling of items in their menu.

Note that different people have different preferences. Even if you like/dislike the taste of a cake, your guests may have a different opinion. In short, we do not offer cake tasting just like restaurants do not offer sampling of items in their menu.

RIGHTS TO IMAGES
Price quoted is only for the physical cake. ALL rights to the design and images of the cake remains with us. Permission for image usage is automatic for the cake purchaser as long as the images are used relating to the occasion for which the cake is purchased.

You may purchase rights to the images related to your order from us at $1,000 per order and all images related to your order will be sent to you via email and erased from our files.


PARTING NOTE
When you are looking to order a cake for a party that you have put your heart and mind into planning and invited guests that you hope will enjoy themselves or you want to impress. 

If you get a quote that is too low, or a baker that is so new you do not have reference past works to view. You may want to visit this wonderful website, CAKEWRECKS.COM

Below are pictures taken from their website, which has many more examples of situations of less than satisfactory outcome.

Certain designs are just better done as a fondant cake rather than a cream covered cake. On the left are fondant cakes while on the right, are cream covered renditions. But we have to say that there are VERY PRETTY cream covered cakes out there.
