Ready for some Birthday fun? Please read our pointers below before we get started!
Kids LOVE seeing their favourite characters and designs featured on their very own custom cake! Tell us your colour, theme and favourite flavour and leave the rest to us.
Cakes ordered for a Sunday party will be ready for pick up on Saturday as we are closed on Sundays. If your cake will have fresh florals, we will be limited to choose florals that will withstand overnight (think roses and dried florals as apposed to hydrangea or other delicate flower types)
To incorporate your chosen theme we use edible images. Upon ordering your cake, our team will source an image appropriate to the theme that will work best with our design style and send this image along with a design concept to your nominated email address.
If you have a specific image you wish to use, please ensure it is a high resolution image and attach your image to the form here. If for whatever reason we cannot use your image due to quality or copyright reasons, we will recommend an alternative.
We prepare our edible sugar sheet images or designs on a white chocolate backing.
This means the image, while still being attached to the cake, will stand out from the cake at the edges (not dissimilar to a placard). A chocolate backing is necessary as this not only provides structure for our images, it stops the edible image from bubbling. Bubbling happens when an image is layed directly onto a finished cake without a barrier. This 'bubbling' is inevitable and is formed due to trapped air and condensation.
In addition to edible images, we use acrylic toppers and a range of isomalt, coloured chocolate baubles or sails and gorgeous fresh or dried florals to customise our kids cakes.
From the menu, choose your base colour, decoration type(s) and tell us about your theme in the notes section i.e "Mickey Mouse". You are more than welcome to give us a call for advice!
Please note, toppers can only fit a maximum of 3 words.
We can't wait to see what you come up with! Happy Planning!

**WE ARE UNABLE TO ISSUE A REFUND IF YOUR JARS ARE DELIVERED TOO LATE FOR CONSUMPTION DUE TO A COURIER DELAY (over 3 days from delivery date).
How much is delivery for my cake going to cost?
It depends on how far you live from the studio! Please find your postcode below - if you can't find it, we may not be able to deliver to your address. To check, give us a call on 02102914671.
This depends on the size and level of detail or labour hours required to achieve the desired design. We have a minimum spend of $240 and our minimum size for custom cakes is our tall 6inch, 12 - 20 serve.
Do you make allergy friendly cakes?
We can’t cater for any nut allergies or gluten intolerances as we work in a very busy and very small kitchen, so while we take the utmost care with each and every cake we make, there is always a chance of cross contamination with allergens.
How big are the cake servings?
Our serving sizes are 1.5 x 2 inches in size and each piece includes two strips of cake and one strip of filling.
Do you use fondant?
Yes and no. While we don’t get too many fondant cake enquiries, we can and still do use fondant where the design calls for it. However, please bare in mind that the fondant application can make for a labour intensive process, which drives up the price and while we don't mind the taste of fondant, we have found that the majority of fondant coated cake slices have their fondant removed and end up as waste. Ultimately we have found ways to create textures and finishes without the need for fondant allowing us to do more within a specified budget and keep to our ethos of minimizing our footprint on the environment.
Do you make fondant cake toppers or figurines?
No but have a chat with us and we can recommend some suppliers.
Ordering, Delivery and Refund policies.
In order to schedule your cake on your event date a 50% non-refundable deposit is required. Without the deposit, we will not hold your date.
All final payments are due 2 weeks prior to your event date. If payments are not made by the due date the cake may be cancelled.
Refunds are not provided for any reason due to our full schedule and resources spent on the attention to detail and designing process. We can however postpone your cake or products to a later date.
If you have ordered a cake online and selected the wrong date and we make the cake on the date you have selected, we are unable to issue you a refund.
Any cake placed outside or in direct sunlight during an event has the possibility of melting or deforming due to the heat. We are not liable for a cake once it has been delivered or picked up from the premise.
The cost of two tier or fragile orders delivered by Colab Cakery is $2 per km from the bakery to the event venue and back. The distance will be determined by the shortest distance as calculated by Google Maps.
We are not liable or responsible for the cake once it has left the bakery. You should prepare your vehicle so it is clean and free of items that could roll or slide into the cake. We do everything in our power to provide a well-structured cake, but please note that cakes are very fragile - drive carefully and slowly.
Please note: We must order ingredients or create parts of your product in advance, in addition to labour that has already been expended in the preparation of any order. Our booking calendar fills up quickly and is on a first-come, first served basis based on deposit/invoice payment NOT receipt of invoice. Therefore, if you cancel, your order has taken up production time that could have otherwise been given to another customer, so we lose both orders.
In any such event as a natural disaster, pandemic or large scale situation beyond our control, refunds will not be provided for any deposits, part or full payments
BY BOOKING, AND PAYING A DEPOSIT/ANY AMOUNT, YOU ARE AUTOMATICALLY AGREEING TO THE ABOVE TERMS & CONDITIONS
