Do you deliver?

We do deliver! Our cupcakes can be quickly delivered to you via, Waitr and  UBER Eats within the Birmingham area. Just download the app and order, its really easy and will come right to your door or office.

What about my allergies?

Don’t count us out! We are allergy friendly! Just give us a call to place an order. We can provide gluten-free or egg-free cakes and cupcakes, and dairy-free (vegan) cupcakes. The minimum order is 6 regular cupcakes of one flavor.

How far in advance should I place my order?

If it is a custom designed cake you want we need at least 48 hours for an order. We also keep ready made cakes you can drop in and pick up. We can personalize them on the spot.  Our best method to accomplish that is to bake everything fresh to order. If you’re looking to mix and match cupcakes, come by and we’ll box some up for you! We’ll always have cupcakes in the case for you to enjoy!  Depending on what you need, we can sometimes do same day orders. 

Can you make my wedding cake?

Yes!  We do consultations every Tuesday through Friday from 10am-5:30pm. We’d love to sit down with you, taste some cake, and talk about what you like. Prices vary based on size, flavor options, and design. Give us a call at the bakery to schedule a consultation! Hurry, we book up fast! Deposits are nonrefundable but can be used as store credit.

What is your cancellation policy?

First of all, who would ever want to cancel an order of cupcakes? Second of all, we understand things come up. We ask for at least 24 hours notice to cancel or change an order. Deposits are nonrefundable if less than 24 hours, but can be used as store credit. 

My son loves race cars. Can you make him a cake in the shape of a car?

Our cake is too tender to carve into a shape. That is good for you, because you’re getting some delicious cake, maybe not so good for your son who had his heart set on that race car. But  we can still make him an awesome race car themed round or square cake. We can do fondant sculptures of most anything. Give us a call or send your pictures to   pics@dreamcakes-bakery.com

Are you open on Sundays?

We are closed on Sundays. Our cupcakes stay fresh in the fridge so come grab some late Saturday afternoon and keep them cold until you’re ready to serve them at that Sunday night BBQ.
