All your questions are answered here!
Do you do “normal” cakes that aren’t Gluten Free?
No. As a Coeliac Australia Accredited Business, we pride ourselves on creating delicious and beautiful cakes that are completely safe for Coeliacs to eat.
This means maintaining zero chances of cross contamination in store! As such, we don’t produce anything that contains wheat or has even a may contain statement.
Don’t let this stop you though! All of my cakes, cupcakes and other baked treats are taste tested by non-gluten free people and they rave about them! With the quality of products on the market now, you wouldn’t even be able to tell it’s gluten free.
Why do you only make gluten free products?
The simple answer is I’m gluten intolerant myself! But when it comes down to it, I was so sick of being left out at parties and not enjoying cake. I also know there are so many more people who, like me, often find themselves in the same position.
So I decided to change the status quo! Why buy a cake that only some can enjoy, when you can have one that EVERYONE will enjoy! I want all people to be able to “have their cake and eat it too!”, we poor gluten free folk included.
I can’t tell you the number of times people have eaten my cakes and never realized they were gluten free. So now you can simply buy one cake for your celebration and everyone can enjoy a slice.
What gluten free flours do you use?
We mix our own Custom Cake Flour Blend using an array of gluten free flours. If you have a specific allergy you’re trying to accommodate please give our store a call on (08) 6296 9808 and chat to one of our friendly staff.
Do you cater for other food allergies?
We certainly can. We generally have at least 2-3 dairy free options in our cabinet in store most days. Most of our baked goods also contain no nuts (except things like Snickers and Toblerone cakes of course). Though please note they do carry a may contain statement as they are all prepared on the same equipment as our nut ingredients.
If you have any specific allergies, please speak to one of our fabulous staff and they’ll be able to walk you through your options.
Do you do wedding cakes?
Absolutely I do! Please be sure to book a minimum of 6 months prior to your wedding date however, as I do book out quite quickly. Simply head to our Wedding page under Custom Orders for more information on how to book your personalised tasting session.
I don’t see the design that I want on your website, can you still make me a cake?
Yes, I can create you a bespoke celebration cake! Please head to our Party page under Custom Orders to book yours in. We require a minimum of 2 weeks for all custom cakes, but please note certain styles require much more notice. As such, be sure to get in touch as soon as possible for your bespoke creation.
How long do your cakes last?
My gluten free cakes and cupcakes are at their best if consumed within 24 hours. I
don’t recommend pushing past this, especially once a cake has been cut.
Our baked goods, however, do freeze particularly well for up to 3 months. Please speak to our staff on how best to do this.

What is the difference between Dessert and Coffee/Event serves?
Cake serving sizes... ahh yes, the most confusing part of ordering a custom cake. Lots of different elements are included in the costing of a cake, but the biggest one of all is whether you plan on serving your cake as dessert!
When it comes to cake servings we work with two sizes: Dessert or Coffee/Event serves. But without having ever cut your own cake how do you know which one you need? It's simple really. What time of day/meal are you planning on serving your cake at?
If it's after dinner as dessert, then we recommend you go dessert serves. These are large pieces of cake big enough to finish off your meal nicely and not need anything more (except maybe seconds!). They usually measure around 5cm x 2.5cm x height of your cake.
The other end of the scale is a coffee sized serve. This is where cake is served, as well with coffee, AFTER dessert. Often you'll be so full from dessert that all you want is a slither of cake. This size is also ideal for morning and afternoon teas where most folks don't typically eat a lot. These slices are also known as finger serves as they're tall and skinny like your finger. They measure approx 2.5cm x 2.5cm x height of your cake.
