How do I place an order?

Call: 973-313-1133.

Did we say "Call"? It is the best way to order. Friendly human beings answering the phone and helping you out. So pleasant.

Visit: 187 Maplewood Ave.

Again with the friendly human beings.

Two weeks notice is required for cake orders.

Please be aware that it is hard to respond to email when your hands are covered in dough. If you need to, you can email us. Please allow—at least—48 hours for us to reply.

When do I need to order?

Two weeks notice is required for most cake orders.

For basic cakes, we can sometimes take an order with less notice. For custom fondant work, two weeks is the minimum.

That being said, if you’re in a bind and it’s the last minute, go ahead and call. Sometimes we can squeeze you in, but no promises.

We will publish holiday order cut-off dates on the Baker’s Special page.

How do I pay?

Payment is due upon pick up. We accept cash and local checks. We use Square to process debit and credit cards.

Sign up for Square Wallet and then you can use your iPhone or Android to pay. Neato.

Deposits are not required, but may be requested for large events.

Wedding cakes?

The short answer is: No.
We do tiered cakes on request.
We do not typically do shaped cakes.

Are you nut-free?

We do NOT bake in a nut-free kitchen. However, all the basic cake and frosting flavors and many of the cookies, including the hand-decorated sugar cookies, are nut-free. Recipes containing nuts are clearly noted in emails or on the website.

Please call if you have a concern about a particular ingredient. We do not bake anything with peanuts.

Gluten-free? Dairy-free?

We have gluten-free items every day. Stop in on Gluten-free Thursdays, when we’ll be sure to have on hand a plethora of GF treats. While we are careful to avoid cross-contamination, the kitchen is NOT gluten-free.

Our banana bread is dairy-free every day.
