> Do you have every cupcake flavor on your menu for sale in the store every day?
Our cupcake menu is comprised of over 30 flavors. We are a small scratch-style bakery, and each day we offer a varying selection of about twenty different flavors of our cupcakes for retail sale. All our cupcakes are freshly baked each morning though, so if there is a specific flavor you are hoping to enjoy on your next visit, just give us a call at least a full day ahead, and we’ll be happy to prepare your favorites for you!
> Do you offer gluten free, dairy free, egg free cupcakes?
Absolutely! Almost every one of our cupcakes can be prepared without gluten. We bake a selection of gluten-free cupcakes for the storefront every Wednesday and Thursday, and if we have an order for gluten-free cupcakes on another day we will bake a few extra for retail sale, but it’s the luck of the draw unless you call us at least a day beforehand to place an order. Gluten-free cupcakes are $3.50 each or $40 per dozen.
Almost all of our cupcakes can be prepared dairy-free. Call us to make an order at least one day beforehand. Dairy-free cupcakes are $3.50 each or $40 a dozen.
We have a Vegan apple spice cake recipe that is quite smashing. Egg-free cupcakes are $3.50 each or $40 a dozen.
Yes – we can prepare gluten-free AND dairy-free AND egg-free cupcakes. You’re welcome to place an order – do allow us at least 48 hours notice.
> Can I order my cupcakes over the phone? By e-mail?
Yes. Call (215) 884-0254 or email firstname.lastname@example.org – if you call and receive our voicemail, leave a detailed message and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. No voicemail or email order is confirmed until we return your call or reply to your email. For cupcake towers, wedding cakes and specialty cakes, a consultation is usually required. Please call us to schedule an appointment.
> How far in advance must I order my cupcakes?
As all cupcakes are baked fresh daily and we offer a variety of cupcakes for retail sale every day, we cannot guarantee that we can offer you every flavor each day. If you would like to order cupcakes for the same day, we can offer what is available for retail.
Please allow at least a full day between order and pick up. Do note, we cannot make every flavor in a day’s notice.
We recommend at least two weeks before pickup or delivery. For cupcake towers that include a cake and/or delivery, a consultation is necessary.
All cakes are custom-made to order at Velvet Sky Bakery. We do not stock pre-made cakes.
> Sizing Your Order
Here is a helpful guide for sizing your order for single layer and tiered cakes. Keep in mind that we can accommodate cakes of all sizes to suit your events’ needs! Our cakes are approximately 4 inches high – two layers of cake with a layer of buttercream filling in between.
> Cake Flavors
We can essentially turn any of our cupcake flavors into a full sized cake. You can select from several cake flavors – and any combination of buttercream filling flavors. Here are some examples:
> Cake Pricing
Every cake’s price will vary depending on its size, complexity, materials/techniques used and other design elements. Call us or email us to request a quote.
> When do I need to place my cake order?
As we are a small bakery, we highly recommend that you place your cake order as far in advance as possible to be sure that we can accommodate you. We book on a first come, first serve basis and take on only as many cakes as we can handle. We can book up quickly – all dates are subject to availability. You are welcome to walk in for a consultation, but please keep in mind we are always busy working on cakes throughout the day and it may take a few minutes before we can accommodate you with a meeting.
Contact us to schedule an appointment, and be sure to bring by photos, swatches, color samples, and any ideas and inspirations for the overall theme of your event.

> What methods of payment does Velvet Sky accept?
