Top Dessert Catering related questions

Whether it be doughnuts from your favorite store or fresh strawberries coated in chocolate, Taskers can accommodate your requests for your dessert table. If some items are unavailable, your caterer can suggest complementing the other items on the menu. Just make sure to communicate any requests ahead of time.

This depends on your preference. A dessert caterer can be flexible with your needs and even what fits well in the venue. More intimate events may only need a styled box of sweets, while wedding dessert catering may look better if there’s a full table spread. Kiddie parties require an even more spacious set-up to allow messes and play.

None at all! You can order cupcake and cookie catering near you for a group of five or even hundreds of boxes for sending out to clients and employees. No order is too small or too big here on Airtasker! Your sweet tooth will definitely be happy!

Delivery fees vary based on location, order quantity, and the type of handling required for the desserts, so it’s best to ask your Tasker. For example, when you book cake catering near you, your Tasker may need a car to safely transport the cake, especially those with more than two tiers. Meanwhile, bakeries offering breads and pastries can be delivered via motorcycle, lowering or removing fees.

We suggest considering the order quantity when estimating the time needed by your caterer. For weddings, couples usually book months in advance. Smaller gatherings may only need two to three days lead time. Try to put up a task at least three weeks to one month in advance to allow you some time to review the offers as well.

Once you find bakery catering near you, paying for the service and food is easy. We charge your credit or debit card once you accept an offer for easy, convenient, cashless payments. Through Airtasker Pay, the full fee is only released to the Tasker when you have confirmed that the task has been accomplished.

What do dessert catering services include?

Finding a Tasker specializing in catering desserts near you is not a problem here on Airtasker. However, to make sure that you hire the right baker and caterer, here are some possible tasks that you can put up for your next gathering.

Wedding and birthday cakes

When it comes to big celebrations like bar mitzvahs, debutante balls, and weddings, cakes take center stage in the whole spread. Taskers know how special the occasion is for you and your family, so there will be lots of offers and options when looking for a birthday or wedding cake maker. It would be great to include details like how many tiers you want, whether they are all edible, what kind of theme the party will be, and the flavor of the cake.

 

If you’re still undecided, you can also schedule taste tests or review the previous works from the bakers who sent you offers. Aside from the classic chiffon or chocolate flavors, Taskers also offer carrot, red velvet, lemon, banana, and more.

Dessert tables

A picture-perfect dessert table will be a great addition to complement a gorgeous cake. Hiring a cupcake catering near you can also make sharing the cake easier than distributing small slices of the big cake. Consider only having the top layer as edible cake and having cupcakes for those attending instead. It can even double as the party favor or part of it.

 

Dessert tables can also have fruits and a chocolate fountain, which is always a hit with the younger crowd! Meanwhile, dark chocolate barks may be a hit amongst the attendees who are not into overly sweet desserts. You can also add some popcorn and crackers to balance out the sweetness. If you’re having a morning or afternoon event, a brewed coffee dispenser can complement the sweets as well.

Doughnut walls

It’s like a dessert table, but vertical! How fun is that? Doughnut walls have become very popular in the past years for providing a cool alternative to serving desserts. Doughnuts can also offer more variety as compared to other pastries. This is easy to DIY if you have time to assemble the wooden or plastic wall with the pegs for the doughnut holes. You’ll only need to order store-bought doughnuts, too! However, if you want more than a doughnut wall or simply don’t have time to prepare one, Taskers in the area can handle it for you for a minimal fee!

Sugar-free desserts

If your guests can’t have sugar due to medical conditions or just dietary preferences, don’t worry! Pastry chefs specializing in sugar-free desserts here on our platform can provide a delicious and healthy treat for you. Gluten-free, dairy-free, keto, low-carb, and vegan options are also available.

 

As the saying goes, you can have your cake and eat it too. All thanks to Airtasker’s hassle-free booking process that can connect you to the right dessert caterer in less than 24 hours.
