Frequently asked questions

How far in advance should I book a cake


Orders are taking by a limited number each week. To ensure that your order is added to the calendar, I encourage you to book well in advance. Depending on the season the slots fill up fast. I recommend 2-3 weeks for a parties and 6-12 months for weddings. On occasions we offer a shorter lead time depending on availabilty.

Our main concern is your health and the health of your loved ones. We may have to consider other options that will be best suited for you.




Are you a Nut free kitchen


NO, this is not a nut free facility. We carry a small selection of products and ingredients that allows for nuts or may have been manufactured in a plant where nuts are processed. At the time of booking, inform us of any major allergies. This includes your guests who will be enjoying our desserts.

C&N will create a edible scuplted design for your cake. Ex. Chocolate Plague, Fondant, Fresh Flowers, Candied Gold Balls or Fresh Fruit. If you are in search of a printable topper (Happy Birthday) with gold glitter, we can recommend a few sites to place a order. C&N only accepts logos for edible imges. NO trademark characters or photos of your favorite cousin




What if I make a change to my order


All changes will need to be made 14 days before your event date. You are allowed up to 2 changes to your cakes. This includes add-ons to your order. I encourage our C&N family to consider choosing from our selection of mini pastries. Every great party starts and ends with just one more bit.

Contactless pick up


Due to COVID-19 a few changes have been put in place for your safety and the safety of others (MYSELF and MY FAMILY) Once you have confirmed your scheduled pick up time. Send a text message when you are enroute. Upon arrival stay in your vehicle. Unlock and roll down your passenger side door and window.Someone will bring your order to your vehicle and place the order on the floor of your car. In most cases we do ask that you have the air conditioner on and directed to the floor. We want all of our C&N Family to stay safe and sanitized. Wear a MASK!!! We can hug me and smile with our EYES.




How do I keep/store my cake/desserts


Place your cake/desserts in the refrigerator away from smelly food. Leave your cake in its orginal container as long as possible. We don't want to cause any damage. To serve your cake, bring it up to room temperature 35-45mins before you cut into it for the best results. Fondant cake may take longer to room temp. All other desserts platter up and serve. To store your leftover cake/desserts, wrap tightly with plastic or place in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Your cake will last up to 5-7days. Mini pastries 2-3days. (If you don't get the munchies in the middle of the night) You can also freeze your leftover cake for up to a month but keep it away from smelly food and wrap it up tightly.
