ORDER INFORMATION & FAQS
CAKE SIZES AND SERVES
Things to consider when choosing your cake size:
What event are you planning? This may determine portion size (birthdays generally serve dessert portions & weddings coffee.)
How many guests are you aiming to feed & will other desserts be provided? If you decide to serve your cake as the main dessert, you may need to consider providing larger serves to your guests. Otherwise, smaller portions may suffice if other sweets are offered. If your event includes a three-course meal, coffee portions are usually ample. If serving the cake as a course on its own, dessert portions are advised.
What is the adult > child ratio? Adults and elders tend to eat less cake and/or smaller serves, while younger people eat larger, or multiple serves.
Who will be cutting the cake? Venue’s will almost always have the cake cut for you, providing the perfect size and amount of serves. However, if another is cutting the cake, this may alter serves as efficient cake cutting knowledge & techniques may be unknown. Scroll Below to view our Cake Cutting Guide.
Would you like some cake left over for later? Your cake can be refrigerated for up to 5 days or stored in the freezer for up to 2 months.
Is your cake desired for display purposes, or to devour?
If you would like to have a wow factor tall or tiered cake for your event but you don’t exactly need a lot of cake you can opt for a cake dummy. We do not provide discounts for dummy tier/s as the same amount of time & costs go into incorporating them into your cake.
How do I cut my cake?
To properly serve the correct portions the best way to cut a cake is straight down into square slices to get the most servings from your cake. Tall cakes are six layers, approximately 8-9 inches tall, while our original cakes are four layers, 5-6 inches tall. When cutting, use a clean, sharp knife and slice straight down. From there you can cut your cake into two to three equal pieces and cut in half again.
*Please note, all serves are approximate and should be used as a guide only. Your cake may give fewer or more portions depending on how your cake is cut.
Our standard cakes generally have 4 layers of sponge, averaging 5" - 6" deep, meaning standard serves can be split for higher guest numbers, serving up to double the amount of portions as 'coffee' slices.
Please get in touch for a custom cake size. All quotes will initially include a recommended cake size with portions included.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? Our storefront bakery is located at 143 S Main St, Nazareth PA. Walk-ins are always welcome and encouraged for those needing a last-minute treat for their event! We are open Tuesday-Saturday 9 am-6pm
HOW MUCH NOTICE DO YOU REQUIRE? Custom cakes are booked on a first-in, first-served basis. Therefore, it is best to provide notice & pay a retainer fee to lock in your date as soon as possible, especially for weddings, as we receive inquiries up to 1 year in advance.
For smaller custom cakes, we require minimum of 2 weeks' notice as this provides enough time to discuss, confirm quote & finalize brief.
For our Ready-to-order cakes, you can place your order and pickup during our buisness hours as long as you give 5 days notice.
HOW MANY FLAVORS CAN I CHOOSE? You can choose up to 1 flavor per tier. Off-menu flavors are only available for prospect wedding clients.
DO YOU OFFER CAKE TASTINGS?
Yes, we do! Schedule a private cake tasting any Sunday of the month here
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE FOR DIETARY REQUIREMENTS? Vegan, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free & Egg-Free cakes are available to order. However, we do not cater to people with allergies as nuts, dairy, gluten & soy are used in our kitchen.
Our signature American Buttercream is Egg-Free only.
DO YOU ONLY USE AMERICAN BUTTERCREAM? As all our signature cakes are made from scratch, American Buttercream is best paired with our cakes. Ganache is available and sometimes used for the final (outer,) coat of larger tiered wedding cakes to accommodate certain designs & hot weather.
Swiss/Italian Meringue buttercream is strictly not available.
DO YOU PROVIDE FOAM (FAKE) CAKES/TIERS?
While this is possible, it is not advised for floral designs as it can be difficult to work with. While some designs can be amended to suit the addition of foam tier/s, Let Them Eat Cake is well-known for our delicious tasting cakes and flavor pairings so we highly recommend opting for the full experience.
HOW SHOULD I TRANSPORT MY CAKE? Cakes are best transported on a flat surface, such as the floor or boot of your vehicle, and air-conditioning must be on at all times. Our 'Cake Care Guide' can be emailed to those worried about transporting their cake which contains more information regarding transporting, storing & serving your cake.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PARTY, DESSERT AND COFFEE PORTION? Party portions as well like to call them are your standard triangular slice that most people associated with 'a slice of cake'. They tend to be double the size of a dessert portion. A dessert portion is what we consider to be the perfect size, as it gives a decent size slice, without any excess being discarded most of the time. If your guests will come back for seconds we would recommend party portions, but for the most part dessert portions do the job best. Coffee/wedding portions are for when someone has an event where multiple courses are served or other desserts are provided. In this case, you would slice your dessert portion in half, resulting in a 1" X 1" serving. Coffee portions are perfect for weddings, corporate events, or anytime the cake might be the centerpiece, but not the main event.
CAN YOU COPY 'THIS' DESIGN? We like to describe our design style as 'intuitive.' Meaning, we are able to connect with certain elements & flow of design to attain a desired outcome or aesthetic. While inspiration images are welcome & requested to get an idea of a style, idea or theme, we do not directly replicate other cakes for copyright reasons & personal preference.
If you desire an exact replica that is not within or of our particular style, we would be happy to help & provide suggestions for alternative local cake decorators.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
Retainer fees (50% deposit) are non-refundable.
Credits (minus a 20% admin fee,) are provided at our discretion and may be given should you require postponing your order to a new date before cut-off, 2 weeks prior. A postponement without a secured date will be considered a cancellation.
