The best ways to order cakes and cupcakes are via a contact form on our website, or via direct message on our Facebook page. Please include the date of the event, number of expected servings, and links, pictures, or a description of the design.
How far in advance should I place the custom cake order?
As soon as you know the date of your event, please contact us. We can only accommodate certain number of orders due to our limited kitchen space. We recommend ordering at least 2 weeks in advance for cakes and cupcakes. For a wedding, we recommend inquiring a minimum of 2 months in advance.
Classic cake flavors start at $3.50/serving for single-tiered cakes, and $4.00/serving for multi-tiered cakes. Gourmet flavors start at $4.00/$4.25 respectively. Cupcakes start at $20/dozen. The price increases based on desired fillings, decoration demands, and delivery preferences. Little Crocus Cakery is always happy to provide you with an itemized description of your total cost.
For custom cakes and cupcake orders under $200, a $50 non-refundable deposit is required to finalize the order and reserve the date. For orders over $200, a deposit of 50% is required to finalize the order and reserve the date. This deposit will be applied to your final balance. If the order is placed during the week of event, the full amount of the order will be due to reserve the date. For Classic cakes and cupcakes, the full amount is due upon ordering. No order is considered final until we get all the information we need for the cake and a deposit or full payment.
The final balance is due 5 days prior to the event.
We accept cash and credit cards, as well as PayPal and Venmo.
You are welcome to pick up your order from me directly; my address is given upon request. Delivery fee within the Cincinnati area is $10-$50, depending on difficulty and distance. Delivery outside of the Cincinnati area is available upon request for an additional fee. Should you pick up your cake from me, I am not liable for damage to the cake once it leaves my possession.
Cancellation and refund policy:
Deposits are always non-refundable. Cake orders can be cancelled up to 2 weeks prior to delivery/pick-up for a refund on payments toward the balance (not the deposit). Following that date, all payments that have been made are non-refundable.
Any changes (date, color, size, decoration, etc.) to the order must be made one week prior to delivery/pick-up. Changes made after that date may incur an additional fee.
While we happily serve allergen-free cakes, we do not have dedicated equipment to produce them. All our sweets are produced in a facility that also processes milk, nuts, wheat, and soy.
We do provide rentals of cake stands and dessert stands. Please see the display rentals document for further information. Any rented materials must be returned within 3 days of the event.
