As we make our products fresh to order, for online orders we require at least 2 working days advance notice. However if you require something sooner Contact Us to see if we are able to accommodate your requirements.
Payment can be made by credit card, cash, direct deposit to Sydney Cakery's bank account, or PayPal. If you are ordering a specialty cake, then a 50% deposit of the agreed price will be due before commencing the cake and final payment must be made 7 days prior to your event.
Most of our cakes are available as cupcakes, baby cakes (4"), small (6") and regular (9").
We can also do various custom sizes up to 12 inches, in both round and square formats.
As a guide, our standard (9inch) 3-layer cake will be enough to serve up to 30 guests with a tea sized serving, or if you plan to serve the cake for dessert then the same size cake would enable you to serve 12 to 20 guests. Check out our serving guide to provide more details.
We can provide you with "best served" advice when you pick up your order.
Cold cake can taste stale. Generally speaking (and depending on the type of cake), cake tastes the best when it's at room temperature. This can be accomplished by removing it from the refrigerator at least one to two hours prior to serving.
If you have leftover cake and want to keep it for a longer time you can freeze it after tightly wrapping in plastic and covering in an airtight container for up to three weeks. However, if you expect to eat it within a few days, simply keep the cake in an airtight container in the fridge.
For changes or cancellations on any order, we require at least 24 hours* notice prior to the pickup or delivery date. Cancellations made after this will be given a store credit to use on your next order. For all refunds, you will need to provide us with your receipt.
*Custom cake orders and all wedding cake orders must be cancelled 7 days prior to the date of your event. A $50 cancellation fee applies to any cancellations made less than 7 days.
Our hope is that you never need to use this policy, but we know that mistakes can happen. If you are unhappy with any of our products for any reason, simply return the original to us and tell us what's wrong, we'll give you a consultation with one of our bakers. They'll find out exactly what has occurred, so it doesn't happen again! We will happily replace the item or provide you with a store credit if a replacement is not possible or unwanted. It's that simple. No fine print. We want to do everything we can to make the situation right.
