AI do something similar.

Not everyone wants a big fondant cake - or even needs an 8" double layer!

We offer an 8" single layer split and filled with a name and 3 ribbon roses.

We have two flavors that we offer - chocolate cake with passionfruit filling or vanilla bean cake with raspberry filling. We'll split, fill, crumb coat, chill, wrap in plastic and freeze 15-20 at a time so we can just pull them out when needed and ice with BC. Perfect for times when we are fully booked - we can offer something to the last minute folks.

Do you have a form they fill out and submit to you? Do they pay on the website? Do you call them or no?Just trying to find an easy way to do it so it doesn't end up being a hassle to do..

A8" double layer BC allergy-friendly cakes with basic decoration comprised a good portion of our business. Even at starting prices of $44 and having to pay for a commercial kitchen these were still pretty profitable. The only requirements from the customer were the allergy combination, cake flavor, frosting flavor, filling flavor, the message on the cake, and what color balloons or roses they wanted. The customer paid on pickup or delivery.
