ORDERING A CAKE ONLINE
Our online collection of cakes require a three day lead time. Please order online by 5 pm three days prior to your pick up or delivery date. Place your order here for pick up at one of our locations or delivery right to your door. *Be sure to pick up your cake at least 5 hours prior to your event so it has time to come to room temperature. **Cakes served too cold and even cool are not tender and delicious.
Most of our cupcake flavors are available as a cake, with a few exceptions. If you do not see the flavor you are looking for online, please give our Celebrations Team a call as soon as possible (at least five days in advance) and they will be happy to help you with a custom order. 206-632-7020

Your cake will be cold upon pick up and will need at least 5 hours to come to room temperature. If your event is in the afternoon or evening, schedule your cake for pick up that morning. Place your cake on a flat surface in your car where it will not slide (we like the floorboard best), and drive carefully. Since your cake will be cold at pick up, that will help it travel without getting damaged. Never leave your cake in a hot car, the buttercream will melt immediately and everyone will be sad. Once you are to your destination, place the cake in room about 70 degrees and bring to room temperature. This could take up to 5 hours. If your event is in the morning, or it is more convenient for you, we suggest picking up the day prior and leaving your cake at room temperature overnight (no warmer than 70 degrees), it will be perfect when you slice it in the morning. Yes, we eat cake for breakfast around here! Or, refrigerate overnight, take it out in the morning and it will be ready to serve by the afternoon/evening. ** Be sure your cake is stored in a spot away from cats, dogs and other pets...we have stories!
At this time we are not shipping our cakes, but we hope to soon!

No, at this time we do not offer tiered cakes. We do love the look of our 6" cakes on the top tier of a tiered cake stand with bites size treats beneath.
SERVING AND STORING YOUR CAKE
It is very important that you let your cake sit at room temperature for at least 5 hours prior to serving. Our style of cakes can taste dense, dry and crumbly if they are served too cold...and no one wants that! Your cake will be cold upon pick up and delivery, so please be sure to plan accordingly and let your cake warm up for the the delicious flavor Trophy is known for. ** Kindly note- Never leave cakes in a hot room or car and never leave in direct sunlight.
If you have ordered your cake a day or two before you are serving it, keep it in the refrigerator in the box. Plan on removing it at least 5 hours before serving it so it has plenty of time to come to room temperature. Cold cake often tastes dense and dry, so it is very important it has enough time to reach room temperature. If you have left over cake, it can be left at room temperature in an airtight container, or you can refrigerate it in an airtight container. Bring to room temperature before enjoying the rest.
It all depends on how you slice it! If you cut your cake in traditional slices you can get 10-12 thin slices. If you use the "cater-cut" method, you can get 18 slices from your 6" cake. Watch our video below to see how easy it is.
First, be sure your cake is at room temperature, this will take about 5 hours from pick-up or out of the fridge. Next, get a cake knife or a larger sturdy knife, place the knife in a container of hot water to get the blade warm (you can also use a hot, damp kitchen towel). Have your plates and a kitchen towel handy. Decide what cutting method you will use, traditional slices, or catering style. (see the previous FAQ and your video below). Begin slicing your cake, dipping it in the hot water and wiping clean before each cut- trust us, the clean cuts are so worth it :) ENJOY!
