Frequently Asked Questions

Prices

Cakes from the Unique Boutique start at S$300. The final price is dependent on the complexity of the design, number of portions, colours and flavour.  Any lights, music or turntables (in the cake design) can be added at an extra cost.

Collection, Delivery/Set-up

Collection is from the boutique close to Orchard Road.  Delivery is charged starting from $30 plus any parking charges unless the cake is over S$500 in which case delivery and set up will be included in the price.

Signature Style is delivered at a flat fee of $30 using a courier service that specialises in cake delivery.

What finishes do you offer?

Due to the decorative nature of the cakes from The Cake Boutique all cakes are designed with a fondant finish in mind.  All fondant covered cakes are enrobed with chocolate ganache under the fondant to ensure a flawless finish and to keep the cakes incredibly moist.

If you prefer a buttercream finish this can be arranged too.

How far in advance should I order?

To give each Unique Cake the attention it deserves I only take one or two unique cake orders a week so I recommend that you reserve your date as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

To design a detailed and well researched cake I suggest booking at least 4 weeks in advance.  This gives lots of time for conversations about details of your event and design of your perfect cake.  Unique cake commissions cannot be ordered with less than 10 days’ notice, in this instance I recommend a Signature Style by Miss Muffet cake.

Signature Style can be ordered 5 days before collection or delivery.

How do I store my cake?

All cakes should be kept in air-conditioning before cutting.  After cutting please keep it in the fridge in its box.  If your event is outdoors please tell me know in advance so I can design a cake that will work in the Singapore humidity.  But even with this consideration the cake will only keep outdoors for maximum an hour before it starts to show signs of sweating and condensation.  Signature Style will show signs of humidity faster than Unique Cakes.

Is a deposit required?

Yes, all Unique Cake orders are confirmed only on receipt of the deposit which is 30% of the total price.  The balance is due on collection or delivery.

Signature Style requires complete payment on booking. As are Masterclasses.

Methods of payment?

Bank transfer or PayNow/PayLah! Are preferable payment methods.  PayPal can also be used at an 4.5% charge.

Is there an additional charge for Sundays and public holidays?

Yes, any cakes collected or delivered on a Sunday or Public holiday (or three days post a Public Holiday) are subject to a 10% charge.
