Welcome to Cake Dots
July 2009 - Cake Dots was totally surprised to receive a call from McDonalds to create a 30 year Happy Meal birthday cake for August 1, 2009. We created this cake and learned that it was a huge success. We have never done anything like this before and were very pleased to get such positive feedback about how the cake looked and tasted. As one McDonalds rep told us, she had just returned from a Chicago party and a similar cake was created for the 30th birthday party there and Cake Dots cake was much better! We were completely blown away because Chicago has such fantastic cake artists. :)
Top then left to right: Cake with fondant Ronald McDonalds on each side of the Happy Meal, which was cake covered in fondant sitting on cake iced with buttercream; Rick and Tad arriving with the cake; and finally, Rick, Tad and Cake Dot with the Happy Meal cake. Fun, fun, fun!!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE !!
All SATURDAY Cakes must be picked up by 12:00 Noon
*weekday pickup times can be arranged*
OK. Starting October 15, 2013, Cake Dots must request that all first time customers pay at the time of order via PAYPAL
We apologize for having to do this, but this is the last time Cake Dots will take an order on trust and have no one call, cancel at least two days before due date, or even bother to pick up the cake.
Tuesday, Cake Dot was just getting over a terrible cold and did not feel like baking, but thinking she would feel better closer to the weekend, she took the order on good faith. Cake Dots didn't even ask for the $15 rush order.
Then Saturday came and went with the cake still in the fridge. We believe it's the same person doing this on a regular basis because we think we can now recognize the voice. The past several months we tried asking for a partial payment up-front but when it's kinda rushed, as in this case, that's almost impossible to do. Besides, we got back into our "trust people" mode. Not good. Sorry.
Words cannot express how disappointed Cake Dots is with people who think it's fun to cause other people harm in the way of time and effort, money and creativity. BTW, this order was for a 12x18 single layer Baby Tigger cutout cake. Grrrr.
It seems that the posted Saturday pickup time is not working very well, so we are posting it up here at the top too.
Saturday pickup TIME is between 10 a.m. and
(the reason for these pickup hours is because we have wedding cakes that MUST be delivered later in the day; so, if the pickup hours do not work for you, just let us know and we will see what we can work out). OK? OK.
Also, if you would like to pick up your cake on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, just let us know and we will be glad to set up a pickup time. It's the SATURDAY times we need to set between 10 a.m. and 12 noon.
If you MUST pick up your cake on SUNDAY
there will is a $25.00 fee
(how's that for incentive, lol)
The answering machine is a life-saver!

By the way, if you call and DO NOT get the answering machine,it's because we are already on the phone
