Do you deliver?

Delivery fees are calculated by distance traveled and set-up time. Longer deliveries are occasionally arranged, but must be determined on a case-by-case basis. Any delivery that totals more than 10 travel hours is subject to an additional fee to cover food/lodging for our staff.

We cannot ship our cakes.  For cake orders west of the Mississippi, please contact our sister studio, Charm City Cakes West

We cannot guarantee that any particular staff member will deliver your cake. 

While it is generally not a problem for clients to transport smaller cakes, self-transporting any cake is at your own risk. Charm City Cakes does not recommend clients self-transport 3D/sculptural cakes, cakes over 2 tiers tall, or any cake more than 3 hours and is not responsible for any damage that may occur to any client-transported cake once it has left our bakery. 

I have dietary restrictions. Can you help?

Yes! We offer Gluten-free and Vegan options.

For wheat and gluten-free cakes, we partner with Chef Renee D'Souza at Sweet 27 BakeryCheck out our flavors page for available vegan flavors.



I have a request regarding press/media, a speaking engagement or appearance.
