Where is your shop?

Our address is 31101 Mission Blvd in Hayward CA 94544. We are in Fairway Park Shopping Center behind Sonic and next to Amy's Grill.


What are your store hours?

We are open weekdays 11:30-7:30, Saturday 10:30-7:30, and Sundays 10:30-4:00. We are closed on Tuesdays and every third Monday of the month. Please see our Contact page for holidays and special hours.


Do I have to place an order or do you have desserts ready to be picked up?

When you visit our store, you will see 20-25 flavors of cupcakes available daily. We also prepare 5-10 ready made cakes for you to pick up. If you wish to place an order for signature cakes or cupcakes, that's fine too. Please do so a day or 2 in advance. If you need them for the weekend, you might want to place your order a few days in advance in case we book up.


How far in advance do I need to place my custom order?

To ensure our availability, custom cakes should be ordered at least 2 or 3 weeks in advance. We will continue to accept orders until we are fully booked, so if you forgot or just found out that you are in charge of the cake, come into our shop or shoot us an email and we will let you know if we have space available on our schedule.


Can I place an order over the phone or email?

House cakes and cupcakes may be ordered over the phone or email. However, custom designs must be placed via email or in person. We do not make appointments. Ordering is first, come, first served.


What is your customer satisfaction policy?

We stand behind every product we sell with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Our purpose is to provide customers with individualized service and quality custom baked products. Providing quality products and customer service are our top priorities. We want you to be completely satisfied with our service and the products that you receive. Your invoice is our contract. If we make a mistake in the execution of your invoice, we guarantee product replacement or a partial refund of the purchase price. Please bring your receipt and at least 75% of the product within 24 hours of purchase. Though we strive for perfection, we are only human. Please note that minor flaws are not considered mistakes. We look forward to serving you.


What are rush order fees?

We encourage you to place your orders as early as possible. However, we understand that time has a way of going into fast forward. If we can, we will hire extra staff in order to accommodate last minute orders and keep the ovens burning. Please take note that changes to your invoice placed after these deadlines are also considered rush order, especially cake flavors and major design changes. Rush order fees apply only to custom orders. There are no rush order fees for over the counter sales, including signature cakes. Days are counted on the calendar. Holidays and non business days are included. Please plan accordingly.  If we are able to accept your order less than a week in advance, the following rush order fees will apply:

  • 1 or 2 calendar days notice, add 30%
  • 3 calendar days notice, add 25%
  • 4 calendar days notice, add 20%
  • 5 days notice, add 15%
  • 6 days notice, add 10%

What is your cancellation policy?

We understand that things happen. In the event that you need to cancel your order, we will gladly give a full refund no less than 2 weeks before your scheduled order, unless otherwise agreed upon. You may have store credit for the full amount of money paid or a 50% cash refund of the total 3 or more business days prior to your scheduled order. No refunds will be given less than 3 business days before an order is scheduled. Please note that any expenses already incurred on your order are nonrefundable, this includes items ordered and save-the-date fees.
