Say it with Cakes - Sweet treats delivered to your door
Sacha Walters, Staff Reporter
Allow the pastry to do the work for you. Say it with Cakes, a pastry company which delivers and provides speciality baked products, sees itself as the Hallmark card of the pastry world.
"You can express yourself Hallmark style," noted the company's managing director, Deane Shepherd. He explained the concept as a cake delivery service which allows you to express your thoughts on special occasions with custom-made cakes in unique shapes with bold messages, with a card on the box. The cards, which are in sticker form, are pasted onto the box and include: 'get well', 'happy anniversary' and 'happy birthday'.
The company, which does not have a store front, sources its cakes from a number of suppliers. Shepherd explained that based on customers' needs, they determine which supplier can best fulfil their wishes.
When Food stopped by, on display was a set of red velvet cupcakes with chocolate frosting, each cupcake bearing a letter to spell out the word girl. The cupcake presentation was for a baby shower.
"We get a lot of interest in the Baileys minis, which continue to be a top seller," he said of the bite-size mini cheesecake cups made with Baileys Irish Cream.
They pride themselves on the numerous options available to customers to make their orders. These include Twitter, Facebook, BlackBerry messenger, among others. Their average turnaround time for orders is two days but it is possible to get your order in a day.
"Because of our expertise with Blue Print Consulting, we can actually plan the event for you, so that's an added convenience," he said of the in-house brand by the consulting firm.
So why not express your feelings with sweet treats, and at the end, that special persons gets to eat your words, literally.
