Kerilicious Cakes - All deserts are made from scratch!!

Below you will find a list of answers to common questions that we received about our cakes. Hopefully we have address any concerns that you may have regarding our deserts or services, if not please contact us by Phone: 713-489-8856 or email Monica@KeriliciousCakes.com.





How do I order a cake?
We prefer cake orders to be placed over the phone so that we can make sure we get all the information we need from you about your cake. We have a wonderful staff that is trained to take your cake order and answer any questions you may have. They can also help you with design and flavor ideas. The first thing we need to know is the date of your event so that we can check if it is still available. Currently, I am the only cake artist making cakes, so the number of cake orders we can accept is limited. When placing an order, please have an idea of how big a cake you need, or how many people you would like to feed, as well as the sort of style or design you have in mind. Tell us your theme, colors, and any specific design ideas you have, you may want to send photos by fax or email but remember that Monica is the artist, and the final product will likely reflect her talent and style and be her interpretation of the theme not an exact replica. We will also ask for detailed contact information, event information, preferred pick-up or delivery times, and a non-refundable deposit to reserve your date.

How do I order cupcakes?
Cupcakes are baked fresh each day and are available for purchase by phone or on the internet order form within 5 hours of an event. However, to ensure enough are made for each day, we prefer that orders be placed in advance if possible. Cupcake orders may be placed by email or over the phone, and must be paid in full at the time the order is placed. Orders may be placed for any quantity of cupcakes. Specialty cupcakes may also be ordered that have custom-made fondant or gumpaste decorations at extra cost. Please refer to our cupcake information for prices and flavor ideas. Cupcake orders may also be enhanced to include special gift packaging, a card, candle, and may be delivered according to our regular delivery prices and availability

How far in advance should I place my order?
To guarantee quality, freshness and prompt delivery, we recommend you place your order as soon as you know the date of your event.

For Wedding Cakes a non-refundable deposit will reserve your date, allowing you time to finalize the details of the cake later. Most of our wedding cakes are booked six months to a year in advance.

We recommend all orders be placed a minimum of two days in advance of pickup or delivery. For short notice orders, please call 281-653-2888 there will be an additional charge assessed on these requests.

Can I order a cake that I've seen on your website?
The cakes on our website were made for past clients, and are meant to serve as examples of what is possible. We do not like to replicate cakes made for other clients or made by other cake designers. We do, however, use pictures and past cakes as inspiration for a new custom cake made just for you. Our goal is for each of our clients to have their own personal, unique cake creation!

How much is that cake on your website?
All of our cakes are custom creations, made for a specific person or event. Therefore, the price would not be relevant to your party or event. We cannot tell you how much a previous client paid for their cake, because cake prices depend on many different factors. However, if you are interested in a similar cake and are willing to provide us with some specific details about your desired cake, we would be happy to provide you with a base price estimate. Please call us for more information or read more about our pricing information.

What are your cake prices?
Since all of our cakes are unique, and customized to you, we do not have set prices. Cakes are priced according to several different criteria. Our base prices per slice can give you a general idea of the estimated starting price of your cake. The base price includes the layered cake with flavored buttercream filling,and very simple decoration. If you want fondant it will add $1.00 per serving to your cake base price. Other factors that add to the price include cake sculpting, gumpaste decorations, detailed piping, painting, airbrushing, or other time consuming design elements, and delivery. Price estimates will be provided when orders are placed, but final prices are usually not set until closer to the delivery date and are subject to change if necessary to compensate for unexpected time or level of difficulty. All cakes must be paid off in full with cash, debit, or credit card at least one week before delivery date, or the order may be cancelled

Base Prices:    Party/Event Cakes:   Start at $2.50/slice plus extra design or delivery costs.
                              Specialty Cakes:   Start at $4.00/slice plus extra design or delivery costs.
                             Wedding Cakes:     Start at $6.00/slice plus extra design or delivery costs.

Do you require a deposit for cake orders?
Yes. For cake orders over $50.00, we require a non-refundable deposit of about 50% of the estimated cake order in order to hold your date. All wedding cake orders and large events require a $100 non-refundable deposit to reserve the date. Our orders are taken on a first come, first serve basis. We receive a lot of inquiries for dates that are unavailable, so if an order is cancelled at the last minute, we lose business that we could have had from other orders we turned down. For this reason deposit money will not be returned if an order is cancelled. We understand that some clients prefer to have a tasting and shop around before making a final decision, so we ask that any interested clients confirm their order by putting down a deposit within one week of the tasting or appointment, or the order may be cancelled. Cakes must be paid in full one week before the date of delivery, unless otherwise arranged. For some last minute cancellations, the full price of the cake may still be charged and is non-refundable.

Do you deliver or ship cakes?
Yes, we deliver. No, we do not ship cakes at this time. We prefer to deliver all wedding cakes and most large event cakes, as they may require some set-up. Delivery prices are calculated according to total travel distance. Local delivery cost is usually $25 - $75. There is no limit to the distance we may willing to deliver, however our availability does limit whether or not we will be able to make some deliveries. Long deliveries or out-of-state deliveries may require special arrangements, so please contact us for more information or estimates.

How do I schedule a cake tasting or design consultation?
For large cake orders, personal consultations are scheduled Monday through Thursday between 1:00pm and 5:00pm. Make any special requests for cake tasting when you make your appointment. Please gather any pictures or drawings of wedding cake designs you like and know the wedding cake budget and number of guests invited.

A $50 deposit is required for all Wedding Cake consultations, which includes up to four cake flavor combinations of your choice. Additional flavors may also be requested for $10 each. If you choose to have Kerilicious Cakes make your cake, then the tasting will be free of charge and the $50 deposit will be credited toward the final price of your order.

For all other cake orders, consultations can be done via our Online Order form or by calling 281-653-2888 during regular business hours.

What flavors can I choose from for my order?
Your flavor options at Kerilicious Cakes are virtually unlimited! All of our cakes are made with alternating layers of cake and buttercream filling. You will need to select both a cake flavor and a buttercream flavor. Our most common cake flavors are Dark Chocolate or Vanilla, but other flavors or spices may be added to the cakes if desired. Our buttercream can be made in a wide variety of flavors to complement the cake. We have access to many flavors and with enough notice, can accommodate almost any flavor you can dream up. For a list of a few flavor ideas, See our Flavor Information page

What is fondant?
All of our cakes can be covered in fondant, which is sugar dough made from powdered sugar, gelatin, vanilla, and other sugary ingredients. We roll out our fondant very thin and lay it over the buttercreamed cakes. There are several reasons why we love to work with fondant on our cakes. We love the flawless, porcelain finish it gives to the exterior of our cakes. It also seals the cake and helps to keep it very moist on the inside. It also adds strength to the exterior of the cake in a way that makes it easier to handle, transport, and most importantly, decorate. Many of the decorations you see are sculpted or cut out of fondant and can be held in place very firmly even under stressful transportation or weather conditions. At the time the cakes are served the fondant can be cut with the cake and easily removed by anyone not wishing to eat it. For those of you who think you don't like fondant, we encourage you to please try ours. We use a delicious vanilla or chocolate fondant that we think may pleasantly surprise you if you have had bad fondant before... and trust me, we have tried them all!

Do you make sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan cakes?
Sorry, but we do not make any cakes that are sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan. Unfortunately, we also are unable to accommodate anyone with strict nut allergies. Allergies can be very serious and we use products (chocolate, flour, etc...) that are manufactured around nut products. We recommend contacting Whole Foods in downtown Houston for sugar-free and gluten-free cakes

I'd love to learn how to make cakes. Can I come watch you work?
We are sorry, but the kitchen is a very busy place, and most people don't realize the stress involved with making these cakes and getting them done on time. We prefer to devote our full attention to each cake in order to make it as spectacular as we can. If you are serious about learning cakes, Monica has been hired to do seminars or demos for various groups and will soon be making available classes that can be taken by individuals or groups. Please contact us for more information or if you are interested in hiring Monica for any cake related seminars, classes, or demonstrations.
