This has been the most frequently occurring dilemma in my life: how do I choose one thing when I really want all of the things?
Thankfully if you’re planning an event and you can’t choose just one feature dessert (i.e. a cake) then you’ve found yourself in the right place!
Below you’ll find a plethora of choices to help create the perfect dessert smörgåsbord for your wedding, event, or gathering.
First, let’s organize our thoughts.
We now have physical gift cards available at LenJo Bakes!*
You can load each card with any denomination you like starting from as little as $5.
These gift cards are perfect for family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, or anyone else!
Sometimes the most challenging part of planning a wedding or any large event is figuring out everything you don’t know!
Our goal is to ensure that you have all of the information you need to make all decisions regarding your sweet treat as low-stress as possible! Whether you want a cake, macaron favours, customized cookies, or a dessert table to rival all others – we’ve got you covered.
So here it is! The ultimate “What do I need to know before booking LenJo Bakes for my wedding?” guide. You can also refer to our page on bespoke cakes for general information on ordering with us. This is where you can find more information about the flavours and sizes we offer and more!
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.
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!
The calendar below depicts our upcoming availability for all bespoke orders.
From something “small and simple” to wedding cakes, birthdays, and everything in between.
The calendar reads like a stop light!
Green means go! We are freely booking this day.
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.
