Cake Chemistry by Genevieve » Gorgeous cakes, cupcakes and cookies

Pricing

Choosing the right cake for your special occasion is a big decision. There are so many things to consider such as style, theme, flavour, colour and design. All this while working within your budget. I aim to provide high quality, beautifully designed cakes that taste delicious and are reasonably priced.

I would love to help you decide upon the perfect cake for your event and will happily provide an obligation free quote based upon your requirements. I am also happy to help you modify your cake design ideas to suit your budget without compromising on quality.

Before we chat, may I suggest you have a quick look at my cake designs to get an idea of the service I provide. Also, if you have a picture or some design ideas you like, please feel free to forward these on to me so that I may incorporate them into your design if possible.

Just a few things I need to know before I provide a quote:

  • What date do you require the cake?
  • How many serves do you require? (see size guide below)
  • Do you have a general idea of the theme and style of cake you are after?
  • Do you have a budget?

Note that I generally require a minimum of 4 weeks notice prior to your event date.

Delivery is only available for wedding cakes and is a flat rate of $80 for the North Shore and City area. Delivery is possible outside these areas but prices may vary. All other cakes require collection.

Tastings are available for wedding cake clients. These are $25 per person and the price is deducted from the price of your wedding cake should you proceed with your order.

Cakes

The cost of my cakes is based upon the size and structure, ingredients and time (complexity of the design). For custom cakes requiring multiple emails and changes (e.g. wedding cakes) the pricing will vary.

Fondant Cakes

  • Single tier cakes from $190 (9 inch). Average range $250 to $350.

These prices include your delicious, custom made fondant covered cake and covered board, a personal message (if desired) and packaging.

Additional costs are for type and number of decorations (e.g. figurines, sugar flowers) and  and the complexity of the design as well as flavour and size.
