Do you offer gluten free options?
As of right now there are no gluten free or allergen free options. The French macarons are naturally gluten free, however Dulcerella’s kitchen is not allergen free.
How far in advance do I need to book my order?
As everything is made by order, there is a minimum two weeks notice, however this is subject to availability and size of order. A custom cake often require ingredients/elements that need to be ordered or prepared in advance. Also, as weddings book months in advance, dates fill far in advance.
For weddings, in order to save the date and secure delivery time, it is best to book as far in advance as possible, as soon as you have your date, venue and a rough number of guests.
In wedding season we try to accomodate birthdays/smaller orders as possible, so the sooner the notice, the better.
I saw a picture of a 3 tiers cake, can I have that for 15 guests?
The smallest 3 tiers cake we make serves up to 55 people. If you like a bigger tiered cake and you don’t need that many servings, we can adapt designs to include more elements in smaller cakes. Contact us directly for more details and questions.Inquire now
Can you make the cake and the florist will add the flowers?
As Dulcerella offers cake design and also assuming liability for the cakes that we make, Dulcerella is the only one that adds flowers or decorations to the cake. Fresh flowers have pesticides and some are even toxic, so they need to be prepared in order to be added to the cake. If your florist is providing the flowers for the cake, we would gladly work with him/her to get the flowers in advance and prepare it for the cake.
Can we get a small cake from you and serve sheet cake from the grocery store?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. It’s about protecting Dulcerella’s brand. When a guest asks, “Who made the cake” and you say Dulcerella, we want to make sure there is no confusion on that. We use only the highest quality ingredients, bake from scratch, and we believe that your guests will know the difference between great cake and not-so-great cake. We understand trying to save money but we must be very protective of our brand. We want everyone to eat great cake!Inquire now
I want a detailed cake, but I don’t like fondant. Can you do it?
It depends on the design. Certain designs can be made in fondant only.
All our cakes are finished and iced in Swiss meringue buttercream, and all our cakes taste the same, regadless of the finishing. The fondant is added on top of the buttercream, like a covering.
We use our own marshmallow fondant, or Satin Ice brand, and we highly recommend it for certain designs, a bright white color, deep colors and certain textures.
Can I have my cake mostly styrofoam and only one tier real cake?
Contrary to some bridal magazines advice, styrofoam cakes don’t save you money, so we don’t work with styrofoam for orders. Depending on the number of servings you need and the design you like, we are happy to give you different options. Because who wants fake cake?
We use styrofoam only for display cakes for storage purposes.
