    FAQ:

    • Q. Will there be an price increase in the coming months? 
    • A. Due to more than 15% ingredients cost increase and average of 10-20% increase from packaging and shipping costs this year, we will be gradually increasing our product pricing to cover cost.
    • Q. I order from Butter Baker all the time, but the cake I got today is little bit squished after about 1 hour drive in my car to Hamilton, can you tell me why?
    • A. We use only natural ingredients without chemical additives, such as stabilizer or preservatives, our cakes tend to be more fragile and sensitive to temperature change and handling during transportation. If you are picking up the cake please handle with care, if you are driving please secure the cake box and try not to make sharp turns, we would recommend to bring a big cooler on a hot summer day.
    • Q. I placed an order online for my co-worker but he will not be home after 2 PM to receive the cake, is there a way you can make special arrangement?
    • A. Our drivers arrange their own routes for maximum efficiency and that's why we are able to offer such competitive rate. For express delivery service we can send a driver directly to the recipient within a 2 hour window between 11-6, for the GTA the rate starts from $25 on top of the rate you paid on our website, please let me know if it's okay and we will send you another invoice for the service.
