Frequently Asked Questions

Can I help design the cake?

Yes. Cakealicious Cakes offers a free cake design consultation service. During the consultation we will work with you to design a cake based on your event, taste and ideas. For design inspiration, we encourage you to bring along images and examples of colours, fabric and pattern swatches.

To arrange your cake design consultation call us on 03 489 2334, or  fill in an enquiry form.

Can I try the cake flavours?

Yes. Cake tasting is available as part of the cake design consultation, or as a separate session. We provide samples of different cakes, icing and filling options to help you choose the flavour of your cake.

Our tasting sessions are 1 hour long and cost $50. If you decide to order a cake we will deduct the tasting fee from the price of your cake.
