Fashion themed Cakelets


Q: What is a cakelet?
A:  Picture a sculpted cake fit for a Food Network Challenge and shrink it down to the size of a cupcake and there you have a Cakelet. Known also as mini cakes or petite cakes, cakelets are a 1-2 serving of cake sculpted and decorated into any shape you can imagine. A dessert such as this is special, created solely for the recipient or guest of honor to fancy and enjoy.

Q: Can I only order and have it shipped out of state?
A:  Mostly, the cakelets that are ordered to be shipped out of state are usually sent as gifts. The cakelet is customized from design and color to details and monogram making it a gift created solely for the recipient in mind. Consider what people spend sending a bouquet of flowers or a basket of precut fruit ($50.00+).  A custom cakelet design offers a lot more opportunities to customize making it the perfect gift, more personal than flowers or fruit.

* Local NC orders usually consist of a custom design cakelet for the guest of honor with coordinating cupcakes for the guests. Cupcake Envy ships custom cakelet designs nationwide. We do not ship coordinating cupcakes….sorry So you see, cakelets are a versatile dessert gift celebrating the recipient in every way.
