Q. Do you ship your cakes?
A. The Hudson Cakery cannot ship our cakes as they are too fragile.
Q. How much are your cakes?
A. Please check out this article for more insight on how we price out our orders here. Because each cake is custom made for each event, there is no general price list for our creations. Anything that can feed 50 guests or less usually has a flat fee. Each cake that feeds more than 50 guests is priced per slice. Our cakes range from $7 to $15/slice and increase depending on detail. Because of the detail and attention we give to each order, we must require a minimum of $300 on all of our fondant tiered custom cakes. There is a $45 order minimum for small cake orders.
Q. Where do you deliver and how much is it? Can we pick up our order?
A. We deliver anywhere in NJ, NY and CT. Delivery charges are a flat fee based on location. Yes you may pick up your order. Please place your cake box on a flat surface in your car where your air conditioning may reach it. Do not put your cake on a slanted back seat or in your lap. To ensure a smooth delivery, please drive slow over pot holes/turns and do not slam on your brakes when driving.
Q. What do you cover your cakes with?
A. Every cake is covered with a swiss meringue buttercream, then a very thin layer of rolled fondant for a polished look. We also make dessert style buttercream-only cakes.
Q. Is a deposit necessary to reserve my wedding/event date?
A. Yes, a 50% deposit is needed to reserve your order. All deposits are non-refundable so please be sure you want to work with us.
Q. How far in advance should I order a cake?
A. The sooner the better – but we suggest at least 3 to 6 months in advance for wedding orders. We’d be happy to accommodate last minute orders if our schedule allows. But it is never too soon to book your order!!!
Q. Do you offer tastings to potential clients?
A. Yes! You and two guests may sample up to 6 cakes & 6 filling options. We bake to order each cake tasting plate so we do need at least 3 business days notice. Tastings are $25 and we will need a credit card number to book the appointment.
Q. Do you make cupcakes & cookies & cake pops?
A. YES! We bake cupcakes in all flavors. We also stuff them with your favorite filling if you’d like! One dozen minimum, one flavor per dozen. We also create gluten-free cupcakes! Our sugar decorated cookies are very popular for favors as well and average between $3 – $6 each.
Q. Do you make anything else?
A. We can also create faux cakes for all media needs – print, film, tv, etc. Inquire about our dessert table menu options too!
