Need an extraordinary cake for your upcoming celebration? Full Belly offers Custom Design Cakes for when you’re looking for something a little “extra.”

Like our Signature Cakes, our custom cakes are designed in a creative, modern style. We love Italian meringue buttercream and flowers! Custom cakes are priced according to the size and complexity of the design. Prices for custom cakes start at $100 for a small cake (6-8 servings) and $150 for a medium cake (12-16 servings).

To get an estimate and start the ordering process, please complete our inquiry form below. We will follow up within 24-48 hours via email. 

Please allow as much lead time as possible for your Custom Design Cake. We recommend starting the inquiry process at least 2-3 weeks before your event date. Our availability is not guaranteed until an order has been confirmed via email and payment received.
