How much does a Sweet Release cake costs?

We no longer do custom cakes

We charge our bakers time at $30 per hour so the more complicated the cake, the more hours are required to complete.

I need a cake asap. Do you have any in store ready to go?
We always have whole cakes ready to go at the shop for those last minute cake needs. Check out our Facebook or Instagram stories which we update every morning with what's available.

Do you cater for special diets and allergies?
We believe everyone should be able to eat delicious treats. Our products are vegan and nut free by default. Let the team know of any allergies and we'll let you know what you can eat from the menu.

What is a pay it forward meal?
It's an initiative we have in place to help feed people in need. If you need a free meal, pop into the store and there is a board at the entrance that shows how many we have available. You can also check out the availability via our instagram stories or check out the website via the online shop. If you would like to purchase a pay it meal voucher for someone else in need, you can purchase them here. It costs $10 and they can use it as the equivalent in store.

What is your policy with paying bloggers?
We have a policy of saying no to offers to write about us in exchange for free food.

What is your policy with donating to charities?
We focus our donations to our Vegan Vault community, Wellington Rape Crisis annual appeal and a few animal charities every year. If you would like to discuss your fundraiser with us, feel free to drop us a line.
