A Love For Cakes- Queens, NY

Custom Cake Designs

Nov. 29, 2019 | By: aloveforcakes.com

When I’m asked…”What is the best way to go about ordering my cake”, there is only one answer… Face to Face. It gets very difficult to email back and forth. I also like to bounce ideas off you and be inspired by your vibe. I also don’t answer the phone while I am helping a customer in store, making it difficult to get back to every message left. I wish that I could, and I apologize for any calls or emails I do not return.

If you send an email to the shop at sabine@aloveforcakes.com you will receive an auto reply that has my full schedule of available appointments as well as some really fabulous information. Making an appointment is the best way to make it all happen.

If you do leave a voicemail, please include as much information as possible. We truly love what we do and want to help make the process of ordering your next cake an easy one. Please note: Advance notice is required on custom orders and some dates in 2019 have already been blocked off. If you are ordering one of our previous made designs, 2-5 weeks is advised. If you want to replicate a photo, that is considered custom.

Custom cakes are made on Friday/Saturday/Sunday only. We currently do not take custom cake orders for other than these days.

How far in advance do I need to place my order?

2 months advance notice is recommended when designing a cake during peak wedding season (April – October). If you are selecting a cake from our website, then we can do that with approximately 2-6 weeks notice. You can order that right at the counter. It’s never to soon to book your cake. A Love For Cakes does reserve the right to black out any weekend at anytime without advance notice.

Black Out dates

Yes. The store is closed for the following Holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, 4th Of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and Post-Christmas Day. Also, when our maximum quantity of cakes has been reached, we will black out that date.

Alteration Deadline

We require a 7 day notice on any changes for a custom order. This is a very strict policy.

Do we need to save the top of our wedding cake?

Although a wonderful tradition, who wants frozen cake a year later? This can be done in any of the flavors you had at your wedding (based on our current menu). A 14-day lead time is required to place this order when the time does come. Please note, this is not a replica of your wedding cake but rather a sweet token to remember your amazing day.
