Top Custom Cakes related questions

Of course! Aside from the design and flavour, you can also customise your cake’s ingredients to make sure they accommodate your dietary restrictions, preferences, and aversions. Feel free to ask your Tasker to do away with allergens like nuts, wheat, dairy, or soya. You can also have a vegan, keto, sugar-free, or gluten-free cake, depending on your diet and lifestyle.

It depends on the policy of the custom cake baker. Generally, bakers offer cake tasting for significant events such as weddings or grand birthday parties. They may require you to meet some qualifications before you can avail of their cake tastings, such as the minimum number of attendees, a booked venue, and the total order. It’s best to consult your Tasker about this, and they may be able to provide you with samples of their different cake flavours.

Cakes can typically stay fresh and moist for three to four days before their texture becomes drier. It’s possible to extend their shelf life by storing them in the fridge, but the taste would not be as delicious as it was when it was freshly baked. Talk to your Tasker about proper storage to maintain your cake’s quality.

Preparing and baking custom cakes can take several days, weeks, or even months. Of course, the time it takes to finish a custom cake depends on the size of the cake, the number of cakes ordered, and the intricacy of their themes and designs. It also involves the preparation of the ingredients, outlining the details, and the baking process itself.

The more complicated and intricate your custom cake is, the farther in advance you should hire a custom cake baker. It’s generally recommended to book their service two to three months before your event, especially if it’s for a wedding or a grand affair. It would be best to avoid booking at the last minute to ensure your custom cake’s quality. Simpler custom cakes can be ordered weeks away from your scheduled booking. 

It depends on your agreement with your Tasker. You can either pay via cash or through Airtasker Pay if you prefer a cashless transaction. Make sure to discuss your payment method of choice before booking their service. Ask your Tasker about essential details, for example, if they require a downpayment before they proceed to bake your custom cake or if they have a cancellation or refund policy.
