What frostings do you offer?
Yum Yum Cakes offers homemade rolled fondant. This is similar to the texture of a marzipan but is made with a delightful marshmallow and sugar base. Also available are Swiss Meringue frosting: a silky buttercream icing, and a sweet American style buttercream. By request, we can add flavouring to your frosting.
Can I choose more than one flavour?
This depends on the size of your cake. If you are ordering 1 dozen+ cupcakes or a tiered cake then you may choose additional flavours at a small charge.
Yum Yum Cakes offers delicious gluten-free, dairy free, egg free, and nut free cakes so that you don’t have to miss out on great tasting dessert! *Please note, Yum Yum Cakes does not operate from an entirely gluten-free/ nut-free facility, and though we will do our best to avoid chances of cross-contamination, cannot 100% guarantee your product will be free from contacts with nuts or gluten products.
Do you offer tastings/consultations?
Yes! Yum Yum Cakes offers consultation/tastings to clients. Meet to discuss cake design, theme, budget, and tasting. Choose from our list of yummy flavour and filling combinations to taste. Tasting fees are negotiable.
What do I need to bring for my consultation?
I encourage clients to bring along photos of cakes that appeal to them, wedding/party colour samples, cake topper, etc.
Can you recreate a cake in a picture?
Yes! As a matter of fact, a picture is a big help to me when designing your custom cake. From a photo, we can adjust the cake design to suit your preference. Many people like our reproductions better than the originals.
How soon do I need to place my order?
For smaller orders at least 2 weeks notice is required. For wedding or tiered cake orders, 2-month advance notice is appreciated.
If you would like to place a late order please feel free to contact us and we will try our best to accommodate you!

I heard wedding cake is always wasted. How do you avoid having leftovers? Cutting your wedding cake might sound challenging, but it is in fact, very manageable. Our
Cake Cutting Guidelines provide easy steps that ensure none goes to waste. It is common for people to think a wedding cake is not for eating but simply a pretty display. Unless it’s already cut and prepared on a plate for them, they are often too timid to cut a piece for themselves. Assign someone to this task in the back kitchen or area away from your reception space. Sharing these guidelines with your caterer, venue staff, or a friend designated to cut the cake and serve it is very important. It will taste amazing and look gorgeous, so you want to get the most of what you’ve paid for the crowd to enjoy.
