Tampa Bay Cake Company is a private cake-studio located in beautiful Apollo Beach, FL.
Address is provided for pick-up only.
We do have a $200 minimum for cakes. We are not the cheapest bakery in town, but if you look at our photos and reviews you can probably see why! It takes time and talent to create edible works of art, and our prices reflect that.
Do you deliver?
Yes! Wedding cake delivery starts at $50, and covers up to 30 miles from our location. After the initial 30 miles, we charge $2/mile one way. Local delivery within Apollo Beach is $25. We don't typically deliver celebration cakes outside our area, but we have many clients who travel from Tampa, Bradenton, and St Pete to pick up their cakes from us!
Do you use fondant tor buttercream?
90% of our cakes are covered in fondant. The only buttercream options we offer are naked cakes, messy buttercream designs, drip cakes, and ombre buttercream. We don't do smooth buttercream to look like fondant because we feel it just lacks the elegant and clean look of a fondant covered cake.
**We use the highest quality fondant on the market and roll it very thin (1/8 of an inch) Also, you receive a layer of chocolate ganache underneath your fondant, so it's super yummy!
Can we supplement servings with sheet cakes?
Yes! We do require that your you purchase 75 servings of main cake in order to qualify. Kitchen cakes are also 4 tiers of cake and 4 tiers of filling-just like the main cake.
How can I receive a quote?
If you head over to the 'Contact' page, you can either receive a quote or book a consultation. Email's are usually answered within 24-48 hours.
How far in advance should I place my order?
The sooner the better! We take a limited amount of wedding (and celebration) cakes per week. Sometimes we are booked 2-3 months in advanced, even longer during peak months. As much as we try to accommodate last minute orders, sometimes it is just not possible. So, please place your order as soon as you have solidified the date of your event.
We only use quality ingredients - Ghiradelli chocolate, buttermilk, heavy cream, real sweet cream butter, fresh fruits and pure vanilla bean extract.. All of our recipes are made fresh for clients with the best REAL ingredients and flavors we can get our hands on! Our fondant is the highest quality fondant on the market. It has a great taste, and we have the skill to roll it very thin! We also make out own buttermilk, salted caramel, fruit fillings, and ganache. Our buttercream is made only with real butter, no shortenings will ever be added. These quality ingredients do cost more, but also gives our clients the highest quality, best tasting product possible.
We use the industry standard serving size of 1" x 2" x 4" slices, but our cake tiers are taller than standard, and are generally closer to 5" or more in height.
Do you offer wedding cake tastings?
Yes! Please fill out our consultation form to schedule a meeting. There is a scheduling fee, but this amount will be taken off the final cost of your cake.
How does payment work?
Tampa Bay Cake Company works with Square to offer secure payment transactions. We use a 3rd party to send invoices to to ensure we get all the details right! In order to secure your event date, we do require a non-refundable retainer for all cakes. This ensures commitment on both of our ends.
Postponement and Cancellation Policies
Due to the current circumstances if your wedding is postponed there is no rescheduling penalty as long as we are notified in writing 60 days before the original event date. If there is a second postponement there will be a 10% fee added on to your balance. If the event is cancelled after the first postponement there will absolutely be NO REFUNDS.
We are constantly turning down orders in order to do our best for each client, and we cannot afford to hold two dates for someone and provide a refund.
