Welcome

Take-Out Meals & Personal Chef with Chef Leroy 

For Cakes email:  Jeanine@ItTakesTheCakeOnline.com


It Takes the Cake specializes in custom decorated cakes (edible art!) for all occasions and takes pride in helping make every celebration fun and memorable.  Sooo, just pick your colors and number of servings, and let us give you something that will be the "WOW Factor" at your event.  It Takes the Cake to make the party complete!  

We are now offering catering through our partner, Chef Leroy.  We proudly serve the Metro Atlanta area.

    

If you want a large cake, but don't need all the servings, we can substitute some of the tiers with decorated forms.  This is a great way to save money and still have the "huge cake" impact.  Another way to save money is to present a smaller decorated cake at the reception and then serve your guests from a sheet cake kept in the kitchen.

We do not keep cakes around for daily sale.  All cakes are baked and decorated to order.  

 

We now offer Wedding & Birthday Cake Portraits.  

Painted in acrylics.    5" x 7"   or     8" x 10" or larger. Generally speaking, an 8" x10" custom cake portrait will be $100.  Here is an example of a cake portrait; compare it to the cake above.

                                           

 

 

We also offer CupCake Decorating Parties.

Gender Reveal Cakes      Make your discovery of the gender of your baby fun!  Have a Gender Reveal Party.   Before you leave the doctor's office from your sonogram, call your baker and have the nurse or receptionist tell them your baby's gender.  Make sure you don't hear.  Then later at the party, cut the cake in front of all your friends and family and find out together.  The outside of your cake will be decorated with something cute, but not revealing.  The inside of the cake OR the fillilng will be pink or blue (girl or boy) with your favorite cake flavor.

Q. Can I make a design appointment?

    As we are purely an online business, design appointments are not available.

    However, we are very happy and able to assist you in a very accurate and time efficient manner via email. Please send photos via email of any other cakes or send a copy of your invite if we need to coordinate. You may mail a color sample if we need to target a very specific shade. If there is a need, then we will sketch your cake and send that to you via email as well. 

    Once your design is finalized and you are happy with the final price, if your order is over $200, then we will schedule a tasting where we drop off a to-go box for you to taste at home with your families. Just so you are aware, sometimes we make your tasting cakes pretty and finished, and sometimes your tasting cake will be slices of cake without specific decoration.

    Please remember that we are known for delivering very accurate results and all of our orders are strictly based on a written cake design agreement that we track via email.
