Where are you located?
Royal Cake & Treats is located in beautiful Buford, GA in Gwinnett County.
Do you have a retail storefront where I can stop by and purchase a cake?
Not at this time. We are a Homebased Business, licensed by Georgia's Cottage Food Program and Gwinnett County. Our cakes are
baked fresh with each order. We do not have cake or treats readily available for purchase like a retail storefront normally does.
All cakes are ordered in advance and picked up or delivered by appointment only.
How much do you charge?
Each cake is uniquely designed according to the client's specifications, therefore, there is no set cake prices.
Will my cake look just like the picture I sent?
Pictures that are sent by our clients are only used as inspiration of what the client has in mind. The goal is never to duplicate the exact cake
sent. Royal Cakes & Treats will tailor make the cake to fit the client's color scheme, theme, and preferences.
Why are custom cakes so expensive?
This is a popular question in this field of work. Custom cakes can seem very costly, however, they are very labor intensive to create.
The work begins with the designing, planning, and discussion with the client to ensure the cake meet or exceed the client's expectation.
Each bespoke custom cake then requires hours (often days) of work in preparation, baking, leveling and filling, even before the
decoration is added. The decorative work is equally as labor intensive, if not more. Simple cakes can often be rather deceiving and
require a lot more work than meets the eye. On average, a custom cake takes the best part of a week to make – much longer if there
are lots of sugar flowers to make! We do not mass produce our cakes, neither do we use preservatives. Our cakes are known for
being absolutely delicious and this is equivalent to the quality of the ingredients we use, which also come at a price. We take great
pride in executing intricate and glamorous details on our custom cakes and, as with any custom craftsmanship, the quality of our
work is reflected in the price of our cakes. We can assure you that we (and most other reputable cake artists) are not charging more
"just because it's a custom cake".
Tasting, and Consultations
Royal Cakes & Treats offer phone consultations to everyone if needed. A design consultation will be scheduled after the initial
conversation.During your consultation, we will discuss elements that interest you for your custom design.
We only offer tasting consultations for Weddings. We allow up to 3 guest for a nonrefundable fee of $25.00. Additional guest will
require a fee. If the wedding cake is booked within 7 days of the tasting, the $25.00 will be deducted from the balance of the cake.
The tasting will consist of 3 flavors of our choice with icing and a filling. Additional flavors will require a fee. The Tasting
appointment will be confirmed by email when scheduled.
Can I just call you to get a quick quote?
Quotes are given via e-mail only within 48 hours of the request. This is to protect both parties. There are many different variables
that go into pricing custom cakes and all specific details are needed in writing to quote accurately. Some estimates may even take
some research if they require special tools or additional techniques. The client may send as many pictures as necessary to help
convey what is expected or the client can provide the theme and budget and then entrust Royal Cakes & Treats to choose
examples for the client to select their choice. Having an written trail of discussions allows reference to review and ensure
everything is correct on every detail of the cake.
How many cake flavors can I select?
Royal Cakes & Treats offer 1 flavor per tier. It is recommended to have no more than two flavors to avoid having a lot of cake left
over. Cupcakes and other items are limited to one flavor choice per dozen.
