Want to order a custom Birthday Cake?
Are you celebrating a special occasion: a birthday, anniversary, reunion, etc.?
Want it to be more exciting?
Well… having a custom birthday cake will do the trick.
But, unfortunately, many of us don’t have the time, skill, or interest to bake.
There are some great options for you if you prefer to have a cake delivered to the party venue or to your home, or you could pick it up!
But how do and we get that cake to be made and delivered timely and safely? In other situations, you may want to surprise that special someone with their favorite cake.
Grocery stores are great options, as well as Costco and other big box stores with bakeries that can certainly make birthday cakes, but what if you don’t want to leave your house? Have you been curious about having a birthday cake delivered?
If you need to order a birthday cake in Plano, Frisco or DFW, or elsewhere you can!
Whether you are trying to stay at home, keep your distance, or just want to simplify your next birthday party, there are bakeries that deliver birthday cakes.
Some are located and deliver locally in Plano, Dallas, Frisco, and other cities around DFW and some will ship around the country. Even if you have special dietary needs, you can order a birthday cake shipped to your home.
Take a look.
Top Tips about Birthday Cakes
Be sure to give them plenty of time to create your cake to get it on the day it’s needed.
Many bakeries need 2 or 3 days and some are up to one week – it’s always worth calling ahead to be sure what they can do.
- Be upfront with your time frame
Making a custom cake takes a lot of time so consider ordering your cake a few weeks ahead of time to make sure you will have a party with the exact cake you wanted.
Understand that you are not the only one ordering a cake and if you plan on ordering a custom cake around a holiday, be sure to allow for extra time. Also, ask and check if they offer delivery for Birthday Cakes.
- Give as much information as possible
You need to tell the baker what you are looking for and what exactly you want. You can provide your theme, the flavor or flavors, and colors.
(Please keep in mind the biggest issue of cake copyright; just make sure you have written permission to use the copyrighted design to ensure you and your baker or cake decorator are free of liabilities. You may find the baker cannot make your ideal cake for this reason).
For every birthday celebration, providing the total guests expected is necessary for your baker to ensure everyone gets a piece of Birthday cake.
And, there is no better way to have a successful partnership but to communicate.
You should be able to trust the baker you have chosen, but don’t hesitate to send feedback and any other specific details you want them to know.
- Budget it Right
Regardless of whether you get your custom birthday cake from a specialty bakery or grocery store, it is important to have the right budget.
Obviously, a bakery that specializes in custom birthday cakes can be more expensive compared to the grocer, but they can do magic and create precisely what’s in your mind.
And, if you are working with a specific budget then let your baker know, and most of them can reasonably cooperate with you to make your beautiful birthday cake without breaking the bank.
- Plan how to transport your cake
Moving a custom cake, especially one that is tall and elaborate needs special care and it can take time in carrying it to your venue. Those cute decorations are made with creamed butter; it made it so delicate. Most cakes need to stay below 70 degrees to avoid melting. Be sure to plan ahead.
- Read reviews or get recommendations
Your options for a cake baker can seem endless, yes… there are a lot out there.
Start by reading reviews and ask your friends, families and online groups for recommendations for birthday cakes.

Most people who do not like cake, (me included), absolutely love the #BerryChantillyCake from Whole Foods… you will find other versions of it but the original is from WF… the icing is not that sweet ikky stuff. WF uses Mascarpone Cheese and it is sooo delicious. But if he like other types of desserts, they also have a wonderful Tiramisu.
