Design Tips

Human & Pets

Typically we do not recommend decoration of realistic / photographic human or pets (Because you have to cut into them) 
 

Too busy design

Avoid "throw up cake" - Having too many different design themes / elements 

 

Toys/Plastic decorations

All hand crafted sugar decorations we do in house require time and labor. For more cost-effective alternatives, toys and plastic decorations can be found on Amazon, Etsy, and Ebay. (We do not decorate 3rd party decorations.)

The cake looks small. Is there a way to make it look bigger

Cake stands are great for elevating and making cakes look larger. It also is a good way to display / decorate your cake.

We do not sell or rent out any cake stand, but you can find them on: 

Amazon, Target, Walmart, Webstrauntstore, wayfair, crateandbarrel
