Yes! The minimum delivery order is $20.00 and the delivery charge depends on the delivery location. We are able to deliver to campus housing Monday-Friday with an AM or PM delivery option.
We are not a nut free bakery, as there are nuts on premise and we do not have a separate kitchen or equipment for nut-free baking. Most of our products do not contain nuts, just note that all our equipment is shared between nut and non-nut products alike, so if the allergy is super-sensitive, please use your own discretion before placing an order.
Yes! We do offer gluten-free cakes, cookies and muffins. However, we do not have a separate kitchen for gluten-free items and all of our equipment is shared between gluten-free and all other products, so contact with a gluten source is highly likely. If the allergy is super sensitive, please use your own discretion before placing an order.
We do offer sugar-free white cake and sugar-free icing. In order to make a true sugar-free cake, any decorations and writing will be airbrushed on the cake. Any traditional piping decorations will be our regular buttercream icing which contains sugar.
Rick’s proudly donates to a variety of local charities, schools, and non-profit organizations. From daily donations to local food pantries to providing desserts for non-profit fundraising events, we are committed to supporting our community. To submit a donation request, please visit this link (VISIT OUR DONATIONS PAGE) and fill out the form. Please note that due to the large volume of requests we receive, we will not be able to accommodate every one. If we are able to accommodate your request, a Rick’s Bakery employee will reach out to you.
As soon as possible! We recommend, at a minimum, 24 hours in advance for simple cakes, 48 hours for tiered cakes, and 1 week for shaped cakes, detailed designs, or fondant work. That said, the more notice that you give us, the more likely it is that we will be able to accommodate your order. Holiday weekends, graduation, football, and popular wedding weekends fill up more quickly, and therefore require more notice. We will always try to accommodate your order needs, regardless of notice, however some of these weekends we will book completely, that’s why it’s better to order as soon as possible! All cakes except simple cakes do require advance payment at time of order. Until payment is made, we cannot guarantee availability for your date.
We will require similar notice to our ordering requirements. We need at least a 24 hour notice to change or cancel a simple cake, 48 hours for a tiered cake, and 1 week for shaped cakes, detailed designs, or fondant work.
From the time that you place your order, we immediately make multiple investments to ensure your cake will be completed including: turning down other potential orders, scheduling bakers & decorators, planning the execution of design, and purchasing supplies and tools. When you make a deposit or payment for a cake, that is a commitment on your behalf, and we will hold you to it, just as you should hold us to our commitment of delivering your cake as we committed.
We’ve got your back! We always keep a great selection of pre-made white cake, chocolate cake, dessert cakes (like red velvet, death by chocolate), frozen yogurt cakes and much more that you can pick up anytime during our business hours and have a personalized inscription added at no charge.
- Put your cake on a flat surface in your car (floorboard, back of SUV)
- Do NOT put the cake in your trunk unless it is cool outside (less than 50 degrees)
- Turn on AC in the warmer months, especially if the cake is traveling more than 30 minutes
- Drive Carefully!! Especially if your cake is 2-tier or larger. Sudden turns or stops could cause the cake to shift.
- Make sure the area you are putting your cake in is free from debris or other items that could roll or fall onto your cake box during transport
Cake pricing is dependent on many variables, such as the size, flavor, and decorations. We will be happy to get you a price quote on your custom cake. Contact us via phone or email.
We cannot guarantee exact color matches, but we will work hard to create a color that very closely resembles the swatches you provide. **Please understand that colors look considerably different when printed from an emailed/digital photograph due to backlighting and computer calibrations.
Because every cake is handmade by one of our cake artists, no 2 will ever be EXACTLY the same, but we will do our best to accommodate your request!
No. Unfortunately, this is health department regulations.
Yes! We are able to add certain non-food items to cakes and only able to add additional food products (like M&M’s, Marshmallows, etc.) if they are in sealed packages. We are not able to add any additional homemade treats or open product(s) to our cakes.
4-6 months is typical. Please note, certain months do fill up faster than others such as May, June, and October. We have, however, been known to make wedding cakes with only a one week notice, but this is not advised.
We do not! We do require a $50.00 non-refundable deposit when you are ready to reserve your cake with us, however, you are under no obligation to reserve at the time of your free consultation
We will provide a box for your top tier. Take that box and wrap it twice each way with saran wrap and then twice each way with aluminum foil. Before eating, place your cake in the fridge for 24-hours to thaw.
This depends on many variables. A buttercream cake outside in July could melt in a matter of minutes, whereas a buttercream cake in an air-conditioned room can sit for several hours. Please feel free to contact us regarding your cake.
It is always helpful to come prepared with an idea on how many people you wish to serve and cake styles you like. Feel free to bring photographs and also color swatches.
