The best way to get started with your custom cake order is to send an email with your request to check availability. Include the EVENT DATE, photos of what you are looking for and the number of servings needed to carol@sugarbuzzcakes.com. I will reply with all the details to get started with your custom cake order.

As soon as you know the date of your event you can reserve the cake with a 50.00 deposit which is applied to the cost of the cake order. I have clients that book with me on the same day they pick up their cake and reserve the date for next year!! I fill up quickly so don’t wait to reserve you next special event cake. Orders are rarely accepted with less than a week notice; but you can certainly inquire.

All details including flavors, design details and payment in full are due no later than one week in advance, but you can send it as soon as you know what you want.

A theme is a great start. Doing a quick internet search for cakes you like will start us in the right direction! I could send pics to you but if you send them to me then I already know that you like them:}

Perfect! I can reproduce most cake designs with just a few exceptions. However, I prefer to add a little twist just to make it your own. Forward the photo to carol@sugarbuzzcakes.com.

My smallest cake will serve 10 guests. A cake serving 10-15 will be a single tier. 20 servings is the minimum for a two tiered cake. And if you want to go REALLY BIG a three tier will serve 30+.

Absolutely, however fake cakes aren’t less expensive than real cakes. In some cases, they will cost more. Crazy right? But they are way more difficult to work on.

As Always with Sugar Buzz Cakes there is no charge extra for many standard shaped cakes, no extra charge for any flavors or fillings on the menu, and never an extra charge to have a different flavor on each tier.

A smash cake is one that is made for the guest of honor. It can be as simple as a jumbo cupcake to a mini replica of the big party cake! Ask about adding a smash cake when you inquire about your order.

That’s perfect because the bakery is closed on Saturday & Sunday. Pickups are available Monday through Friday from 10am until 6pm with a scheduled one-hour window. Please be prompt as I schedule errands and deliveries around your preferred pick-up time.

The address is 1426 West Huntington Drive Tempe, AZ 85282. The major crossroads are Priest Drive and Southern Avenue. Please note you will be going to a residential area. I have a commercially licensed cake studio on my residential property. I am health department approved and keep up my “A+” grade along with exceeding the city and state requirements.

Absolutely! The delivery rate is $30.00 plus $1.50 per mile one way. An example delivery rate for a 10-mile delivery calculates to $45.00. Remember delivery is based on availability so inquire early!

I have delivered north to Sedona/Flagstaff and south to Tucson. If you provide a delivery address or crossroads, I can calculate the delivery rate for you. Delivery is based on availability. Please inquire EARLY.

I am sorry but these cakes are delicate, intricate, edible creations. Shipping is not an option unless you are up for airfare and a night or two in a hotel.

Cakes that are whimsically designed with stripes, polka dots or other simple patterns start at $125.00 for my smallest cake.  An increase in size and detail will alter the cost. Tiered, themed or two-dimensional cakes will be slightly higher pending final design.

Envision a fire truck… A 2D design would be a cake in the shape of a fire truck cut out from a sheet cake lying on its side. A 3D fire truck would be one that only had its wheels on the cake board and sits upright just like a toy or real fire truck would.

Payments are accepted via the website under the payments tab. Once a payment is made, you will get an email receipt for confirmation. A deposit is the best way to secure a cake order. Otherwise, without a deposit… it is simply just a proposal and your order will not be made.

ALL FINAL PAYMENTS ARE DUE ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE. Please be mindful that this is a custom order for you and your event. If payment in full is not received one week in advance your cake will not be made. Deposit will be forfeited with less than two weeks’ notice of cancellation.

After more than 20 years of decorating and having the pleasure of being a part of hundreds of celebrations, I am retiring the bakery. My last day of operation will be November 3, 2023. Thank you for your loyalty and support. And for challenging me year after year which contributed greatly to my growth and expertise. So thank you, every single one of you, who played a part in that. If you have a photo you’d like to post and share with me of your guest of honor with their cake, I would be thrilled to see them and cherish them for a long time to come. https://www.facebook.com/SugarBuzzCakes Sweetly yours, Carol Antes.
