No, we use butter or cream in all of our desserts.

Yes, we can offer gluten free items at special requests. Please inquire before placing order.

Yes! Delivery is available for wedding cakes and cakes that require on-site assembly. We do not ship our cakes. Delivery fees are calculated by distance traveled and start at $50. While it is generally not a problem for clients to transport smaller cakes, self-transporting any cake is at your own risk. Penthouse Sweets does not recommend clients self-transport 3D/sculptural cakes, cakes over 2 tiers tall, or any cake more than 3 hours. Penthouse Sweets Inc. is not responsible for any damage that may occur to any client-transported cake once it has left our studio.

Yes! We welcome ideas and suggest bringing inspirational materials such as your event invitation, magazines, pictures and color swatches to create your perfect cake or cupcake design.

Yes, we can create your cake using dummy tiers for added height. We charge $2 less than the price per slice would be for a real cake.

At the moment we don’t offer shipping on cakes. However, contact us regarding your purchase, some items are eligible for shipping. All shipped items incur and additional charge for shipping.

We do have nuts in our bakery, so there may be traces of nuts in our products.

Complete a consultation request form out online. A Penthouse Sweets cake designer will be in touch with you shortly. You can also send us an email

For weddings we suggest 6-8 months in advance. Custom Cakes, Desserts Bars, and Party cakes should be ordered at least 45 days in advance. Custom Cupcakes and smaller items we request that they are ordered at least 2 weeks in advance.

The cake making process starts with you requesting a price quote. Simply click Contact Us from the drop down menu, and then fill out as many of the fields as possible with your event details and creative cake vision. The more info you can provide, the better we can price your cake! You will receive an email from us within two business days to further discuss options. Once you have indicated that want to move forward with the order, we will then send you a contract and payment form or ask to schedule a design appointment. Design/Tasting appointments are held for most, but not all, cake orders. This meeting is an opportunity for you to sit down with a decorator, design the cake and have lots of fun!

During your design appointment, we will provide you with a cake sketch, final contract/pricing for the order, and a taster box of six cake samples. Your appointment should take about 45 minutes. Be sure to bring any visual references (pictures, objects, swatches, etc..) that you think will aid in the design and construction of the cake. Additionally, please come prepared with as much event info as possible, including the setup schedule, important contacts and any relevant delivery conditions. At the end of the appointment we will sign the cake contract with you and accept the fifty percent deposit. Should you need additional time to decide on the cake or arrange for payment, we will gladly hold your event date on our production calendar for up to five business days. See our Payment Policy for more details. Come two weeks before your event date, we will process the final payment and collect any outstanding delivery info and/or design references.
