Custom Cakes & Special Orders

Custom Orders for All Occasions

Custom Cakes

Elysia Root Cakes creates cakes for weddings, birthday parties or any special occasion that calls for a cake. We do not have set prices since all of our cakes are unique, and customized to you. Each cake is a custom creation and our 2017 starting price per slice (the basis for pricing used by most bakeries) is $7.75 per slice and increases depending on the complexity of the design. Add $0.50 per serving for Premium Filling Flavors. Remember, serving your guest a great slice of wedding cake is the equivalent to serving them one of the finest plated desserts in a fine dining restaurant. We have a minimum of $500 for all Wedding Cake orders and $375 for all other orders.

*Additional undecorated kitchen cake is available for $5.25 dollars per serving after ordering a custom cake with 100 servings or more.

Additional sugar work such as gumpaste flowers and fondant figures are priced separately. Other factors that add to the price include cake sculpting, gumpaste decorations, detailed piping, painting, airbrushing, or other time consuming design elements, and delivery.

Weddings

It is important to us that your wedding cake be exactly what you want. Therefore, we limit the number of orders we accept so that we can give each cake the attention it deserves. Our calendar gets filled quickly, especially May through October. We recommend that you make an appointment for a wedding cake consultation as soon as you’ve secured the date and your venue.

A non-refundable 50% retainer is required to hold your date. All cakes must be paid off in full with cash, check, debit, or credit card at least two weeks before delivery date, or the order may be cancelled.

Decorated Cookies & French Macarons

We also offer decorated cookies and French Macarons to complement your cake order or to use as wedding favors. At this time, we do not offer standalone cookie or macaron only orders unless your order is for 8 dozen or more. Please contact us for corporate ordering information.

Cookie pricing is dependent on the size and shape of the cookie and starts at $2.50 each. Add $0.50 for bag & ribbon.
