How far in advance do I need to place my order?
I highly recommend reserving your order as soon as possible. I limit how many orders I accept a month to ensure I have time to give 110% to all clients.
How do I place an order?
Once you have decided on a date that you will need your order, contact Harbor Cakes to book that date ASAP. There is a $25 fee ($50 for wedding orders) to book the date for your event cake that will be deducted off of the final total. You don’t need to have your design figured out just yet and I will work with you to create exactly what you want. I send an invoice for the booking deposit that can be paid online with debit/credit and the remaining balance is due on or before delivery.
How long does it take to have a cake made?
Depending on how much detail, most cakes take me between 15-20 hours to complete. The longest one has taken me 40 hours!!!
We have specific dietary needs, can Harbor Cakes help?
Absolutely! I can make cakes, fillings, frostings and fondant gluten-free, vegan, nut-free, and soy-free. I am committed to modifying recipes to fit everyones dietary needs. I work super hard to make sure that cross-contamination does not occur. However, my kitchen does hold and work with foods containing all of these ingredients.
If I order a cake with multiple tiers can they be different flavors?
If the minimum order for cupcakes is a dozen, can I do a mix of flavors?
Unfortunately not. Everything is scratch made at the time of order and for labor purposes I ask for a minimum of 1 dozen per flavor.
Where is your store located?
Thanks to my amazing husband for building me a commercial kitchen on our homestead, I do not have a storefront.
Is Harbor Cakes licensed?
Yes! Along with having a business license, I hold a food processing licensing with the Washington State Department of Agriculture License #21849
