CAKE FAQ 

 

Do you make shaped cakes or sheet cakes?

No. All of your cakes are round in shape and consistent of three cake layers.

Do you work with fondant?

No, our bakery uses only American style buttercream. 

 

Can recipes be modified (IE: Lower sugar, modifying an ingredient, substituting an ingredient, etc?)? 

All of our recipes are tested for quality and approved with the Department of Agriculture, and thus cannot be modified. Additionally, we do not accept any outside recipes.

 

Do you write on your cakes?

At Hollywood Baked Goods we prefer to keep our cakes artful and classic, and do not offer writing on cakes. 

 

How far in advance should I place my cake order?

We ask for a minimum of 7 business days, however there are occasions we can accommodate a cake on shorter notice. Currently all of our cakes are made to order, so once our custom production schedule fills up, no more cake orders will be accepted even if it's within the 7 days window. We encourage all of our customers to order well in advance, especially during peak holiday times.  

 

How do I place an order?

Please email hello@hollywoodbakedgoods.com for custom projects. Prestyled, non-customizable cakes can be ordered in our "Bake Shop". If you are wanting a custom cake design please send photos or ideas for our team to review. 

 

Are you a certified gluten-free, vegan, or nut free facility? 

Although we do offer gluten free and vegan options, we are not a certified gluten free or vegan facility. We do however try to avoid any cross contamination within our bakery. All of our vegan options are guaranteed to be fully vegan. We are also not a certified nut free facility.

How does pricing work for custom cakes?

Our pricing for custom cakes depends on labor and materials used for the cake. The more intricate the cake, the longer it will take to create, and thus the price point will be higher. Our 6" cakes (Non-Vegan and Non-Gluten Free) start at a base price of $93. Our 6" Vegan cakes start at $106, and our Gluten Free cakes start at $107. Fruit filling is an additional $5.

Our 8" cakes (Non-Vegan and Non-Gluten Free) start at a base price of $113. Our 6" Vegan cakes start at $116, and our Gluten Free cakes start at $117. Fruit filling is an additional $5.

Why are custom cakes expensive?

Listen- we totally get it! Custom cakes ARE expensive, and there’s certainly a reason why. Every element of a custom cake is made for you. This comes down to the initial phone call or email, to handing you the final product. All of our cakes are handmade from scratch, which from mixing to baking to designing to assembling to creating is time consuming and laborious. Most custom cakes require consultation time, special elements that need to be ordered in advance, need custom coloring, and require creative design and research. To us our cakes are more than just ingredients, they are pieces of edible artwork and we want to make sure our staff is paid accordingly for how much love, care, and attention custom projects require. ​
