FAQs

What are your cakes made of?

Layer cakes – All our cakes are filled and covered in Italian meringue buttercream plus other delicious fillings depending on your choice of cake flavour from our menu.

Novelty sculpted cakes – All of our sculpted novelty cakes are offered in Belgian chocolate mud cake and are filled and covered in chocolate ganache, followed by a layer of fondant icing or modelling chocolate.

Hand sculpted cake toppers and other edible decorations are made using a variety of edible products, including fondant, tempered chocolate, modelling chocolate and pastillage.

Unfortunately, we no longer offer fondant decorated layer cakes.

Do you sell undecorated cakes?

Yes. We certainly do. Just go to our price guide, choose your favourite cake size and give us a buzz or send us an email to contactus@sweetmadnesscakes.com

How much do your cakes cost?

We have a starting price guide.

However, We create customised cakes. This means that there is no set price for any given cake. Pricing is subject to size, decorative options, and complexity of design. Please get in touch for a detailed quote.

Do you deliver?

Yes. We deliver to Croydon and some surrounding suburbs free of charge for orders over $50. Please have a look at our delivery fees list. If you can’t find your suburb listed, contact us for a quote.

Unfortunately, We currently do not have a delivery service to the western suburbs of Melbourne.

Can I pick up my cake?

Yes. You may collect your cake from our premises on weekends between 9:30am to 1pm and week days from 4:30-6:30pm. All other times are to be agreed upon in advance. Please refer to our T&C’s regarding transporting your own cake.

Can I taste my cake before I buy?

Yes. We offer 7x portion cake tasting boxes and 2x portion cake tasting boxes via our online shop. Available for pick up or shipping towards the end of every month.

Cake samples will not be posted during the warmer months of the year.

If the date of your event is less than a month away and you would still like to sample our cakes, we strongly recommend you secure your date with a deposit to avoid disappointment. 

Ordering a sample box does not secure your booking.

I like this cake. Can you make it exactly the same?

We do not copy designs from a picture. Whether it is a picture from our gallery or one that you have found online or have drawn yourself.

What we will do is work with you to create your dream cake, so that all the elements you love are incorporated into using our creative style, work methods and techniques. 

It is also important to remember and be aware, hand made items are unique and no two hand made items are ever exactly the same. 

This means, even if you show us one of our pictures, the finished cake product will be the same style and design but will have slight variations from the pictured item.

Can I make a tentative booking?

Unfortunately, we do not hold any dates without a deposit.
