  • Do you deliver?

    Yes! We  deliver wedding and custom orders. If this applies to you, please inquire info@cakelifebakeshop.com for details! We are now delivering through Caviar !

  • Do you offer any gluten-free or vegan items?

    Yes. We have at least one gluten-free and vegan option every day. Almost all of our cakes can be prepared gluten-free—just email info@cakelifebakeshop.com or call 267-324-5579 for special orders!  Please allow 1 week for custom options.

    Please note that we do use gluten and dairy in our facility and in the same ovens. All of our products may contain or come into contact with milk, wheat, nuts, soy, and other allergens, or contain trace amounts, despite our best efforts to avoid cross-contamination.

  • Do your products contain nuts, soy, or other allergens?

    Please note that we use nuts, gluten, dairy, and other allergens in our facility. All of our products may contain or come into contact with milk, wheat, nuts, soy, and other allergens, or contain trace amounts, despite our best efforts to avoid cross-contamination.

  • Can I put something on hold?

    Yes, with advance payment. Just call 215-278-2580 and we would be happy to set that up for you!

  • What if I need a cake today or tomorrow?

    Just stop by the shop or call 215-278-2580 and our helpful staff will explain all the flavors that are available! Any available cake can be made ready for pick-up within 24 hours or less, including a small inscription if required (ie “Happy Birthday, Lily!” or “Congratulations!”).

    Custom cakes require more notice (typically at least 7 days), but we can almost always get an available cake or cupcakes ready for you in time for a last-minute event!

  • Do you have cakes I can just pickup, or do I have to place an order?

    We have a variety of cakes available for walk-in purchase everyday! Just visit or call the bakery at 215-278-2580 to see what we have in stock. If there is a particular flavor you have in mind, we suggest you call at least three days ahead.

  • You look familiar… Have I seen you meatballs before?

    You might recognize Cake Life’s owners, Lily Fischer and Nima Etemadi, from their three appearances (and win!) on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars!

  • Do you offer internships?

    Yes! We welcome requests for school credit-based internships for students currently enrolled in local pastry arts programs. Please inquire at jobs@cakelifebakeshop.com.

    Custom Cakes / Weddings

  • What counts as a custom cake?

    Any cake that is a special size or flavor (not chosen from what is available in-house), or has décor beyond a small inscription (ie “Happy Birthday, Lily!” or “Congratulations!”) is considered custom. If you are still confused, please visit or call the bakery at 215-278-2580 and our staff will help clarify!

  • I’ve never ordered with Cake Life before. Where do I begin?

    For custom or wedding orders, please email us at orders@cakelifebakeshop.com or call our sales line at 267-324-5579.

  • I think I know what I want, but I have some questions before I place my order.  What should I do?

    Please email us at orders@cakelifebakeshop.com or call our sales line at 267-324-5579. Your questions are important to us!

  • How far in advance should I place my order?

    Cake Life’s general rule of thumb is that custom orders require a minimum of 7 days prior to your celebration or event. Cake Life works on a first come, first serve basis, so during the busy holiday months and wedding season (late spring through mid fall), our capacity is quickly filled each week. During these months, please consider placing your order 2-3 weeks prior to your celebration to better ensure availability. Occasionally we can fit in last minute orders, but this is completely dependent upon our weekly schedule!

  • How much do your cakes cost? I don’t see any pricing.

    All of our custom cakes are designed just for you and are priced individually based on flavor and design. Please email us at orders@cakelifebakeshop.com or call our sales line at 267-324-5579 for details!

  • Do you make sculpted cakes?

    Yes, we do! Our sculpted cakes typically start at $300 and up, depending on the intricacy of the design. Please email us at orders@cakelifebakeshop.com or call our sales line at 267-324-5579 for details!

  • I have a Pick-Up scheduled with you at 10 am.  Can I come earlier?

    It is possible that your order will be ready early, but we cannot guarantee that. If you would like to pick it up ahead of your scheduled time and would prefer to avoid the chance of waiting, please call the shop at 215-278-2580 to see if it’s ready.

  • How large of cake should I order?

    Estimate how many guests will be attending your celebration and we will recommend which cake size(s) best fit your needs! Please keep in mind all of our serving sizes are suggestions, and generous portions at that, but you can slice it however you like! Please email us at orders@cakelifebakeshop.com or call our sales line at 267-324-5579 for details.

  • I’m getting married/throwing a big party. Can I come in for a cake consultation/tasting?

    Absolutely! We currently conduct custom tastings for weddings and for parties of 75+ attendees. To schedule a tasting for you, your fiancé and up to 2 guests, please email us at orders@cakelifebakeshop.com or call our sales line at 267-324-5579 for details!

  • How far in advance do I need to order my wedding cake?

    We suggest placing wedding orders at least 3-4 months in advance to ensure availability on your wedding date. We also highly recommend booking a tasting so we can discuss your vision in person and you can try all of our great flavor combinations! Email us at orders@cakelifebakeshop.com or call our sales line at 267-324-5579 for more.

  • Do you have party items to rent?

    Yes! We have various stand and platters that we can rent, as well as a cupcake tower! Email us at orders@cakelifebakeshop.com or call our sales line at 267-324-5579 for details.
