FAQ

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 – Our novelty cakes are only 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 or fondant decorated wedding cakes.

Do you sell undecorated cakes?

Yes. We certainly do. Just choose your favourite cake flavour from our menu 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 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. We currently offer contactless pick up from our premises in Croydon. Please refer to our T&C’s regarding transporting your own cake.

How do I store & serve my cake?

Store your cake at room temperature.

Your cake is very firm when cold. Please serve cake at room temperature (20–22 °C) for best texture and flavour.

If your event is in the evening and your cake is decorated with fresh flowers, please store in the fridge. Bring your refrigerated cake out 1-2 hours before serving and let sit at room temperature (20–22 °C).

Our cakes do not contain any preservatives. Once your cake is cut, it should be served and consumed immediately. Any leftover portions of cake should be tightly wrapped and stored in an airtight container. Cut cake begins to dry out very quickly.

Can I taste my cake before I buy?

Yes. We offer cake tasting boxes. 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 date.

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 using our creative style, work methods and techniques. 

Can I make a tentative booking?

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