Pay It Forward

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: LenJo Bakes has the *best* customers!

A while ago we had a customer who wanted to do something lovely for…well, whoever needed it! They were in a good place, but recognized that a lot of people weren’t.

They prepaid for a bunch of sweet treats and bevvies and gave us the pleasure of handing out the sweet surprises to someone whose day needed a bit of a lift. (Which was really just as lovely for us – giving gifts is the best!)

One of the customers who received a gifted treat, came back the week after (in a better place) and felt compelled to continue paying the generosity forward.

What’s Your Flavour?

Let’s explore one of elements that will make up your spectacular, completely bespoke custom cake: the flavour!

As a standard, each cake tier will have 4 layers of cake and 3 layers of filling.

Our extra tall tiers have 6 layers of cake and 4 layers of filling (split into two cakes of 3 layers of cake, two layers of filling divided by a cake board).

Although we have curated a small list of options available below, the sky is the limit! Tell us what your favourite flavours are and we’ll figure out a way to deliver.

We’re happy to provide both gluten-friendly and dairy-free alternatives for nearly all of our cakes and fillings!

Does Size Really Matter?

You hear the question all the time – does size really matter?

In relation to choosing a cake which will be the centrepiece of your special event the answer is: sometimes.

Size *does* matter when: there is a budget, there are other desserts/sweet treats at the event, your guests aren’t really cake people.

Size does not matter when: you want something to “look big” in photos, you want a 2-tier cake that feeds 8 people, or your venue/event does not allow for sufficient storage of a larger cake.

I Wish I Was A Little Bit Taller…

When a little height makes a *big* difference!

If you’re displaying your cake as a centrepiece at your special event, then it needs to take on the look of a centrepiece.

Your cake needs to be easily spotted across the room, draw attention to itself, and announce, “Here I am! Come look at me!” if that’s the vibe you want!

The easiest way to achieve this is by placing your beautiful cake on a stand.

You’re providing height, adding drama (depends on how ostentatious your stand is), and allowing your cake to take centre stage with authority!
