Custom Cakes are Our Specialty

Creative Cakes are our Specialty

With a name like Creative Cakes, you know that we specialize in show stopping cakes. From first birthday cakes to retirement cakes, we make all of your special events a little sweeter. Our custom cakes are often the centerpiece of your party, helping you create that “wow” experience for all of your guests. As far as decoration goes, our cake decorating team is incredibly talented. If have a design in mind, we are confident that we can create it. Each custom cake we make is a unique piece of art, so pricing for decorations will vary accordingly to the design. Many of our simpler designs have decoration included in the basic pricing, however. Just let us know what you are interested in and we’ll be happy to give you a price quote.

  • Party Cakes are single-tiered round or sheet cakes. They can be decorated very simply or quite elaborately. In most cases, the inside of the cake has two cake layers with a filling in-between.
  • Tiered Cakes are great for those extra-special celebrations in life! A tiered cake means that one cake sits on top of another. Inside, each tier has 3 layers of cake with 2 layers of filling.
  • Shaped Cakes are fun showstoppers! 2-D shapes lay flat, and 3-D shapes sit up. Inside, the cake layers vary according to the shape of the object you’d like us to recreate. Because of the time involved, shaped cakes are often the most expensive cakes we offer. Make sure to order well in advance of your event, as we book up quickly on these amazing cakes!

Our cake decorators are skilled in every level of the sugar arts. Fondant, hand-modeled figures, hand-painting, you name it – they can do it. Artists in their own right, they have competed at the national level and have made several television appearances. We are so lucky to have them as part of the Creative Cakes family!
