Pricing

Cake prices start around $30 and vary depending upon complexity, servings needed, fillings, fondant, etc. Prices listed below DO NOT INCLUDE TAX. All orders REQUIRE 50% deposit to hold a spot in the calendar, minimum of $30 – NO EXCEPTIONS. You may leave a deposit using a credit card over the phone, which will be applied as a payment toward your cake order at the time of pickup. NO REFUNDS given on deposits, as the scheduled time for each order has been allotted for that particular cake. Hands On Design is not responsible for illness, bad weather or change of plans, and you will be billed for the entire cake cost of the cake once it has been started.

Keep in mind…you pay a plumber, mechanic, attorney and others a lot of money per hour to do something you are not able to do. Cake design is no different. Each cake is unique and to your specifications. We specialize in not only beautiful cakes, but cakes that also taste wonderful.

Picking Up Your Cake

You will need to pick up your cake from my home, located near Custer/McDermott Road. I am not posting this address, but will email you directions if you order a cake.

Keep this in mind when picking up your custom cake:

  • During hot months, your vehicle MUST be air conditioned.
  • Please have a large, FLAT area available to transport the cake. Transporting on a soft, angled car seat can crack the frosting due to bouncing and bending the cake board.
  • 3-D and tiered cakes are especially fragile for transport and REQUIRE a flat surface (many front floorboards are not flat and many back floorboards are not big enough).
  • When using any cake stands, cake toppers or figurines borrowed from Hands On Design you will need to leave a deposit for the value of the item. THE CLIENT IS EXPECTED TO RETURN the equipment to Hands On Design within a timely fashion or the deposit will be kept and the item will be replaced.

Hands On Design IS NOT RESPONSIBLE for cakes once they have been picked up.

We will no longer offer delivery service but can refer you to a delivery service for you to contact directly.
