Frequently Asked Questions
Please note: At this time, we are no longer taking custom orders.
Please view our Facebook page, facebook.com/sweetsbychristine, for details of bake sales around holidays.
We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you.
Do you have a menu?
We do not have a menu but our primary focus is decorated sugar cookies, cupcakes and cakes.
Do you have a store front or retail location where I can stop by?
We do not. We are a home-based cottage bakery focused on custom orders. We host open houses/bake sales before large holidays at which time you're welcome to come between our set open hours. Be sure to like and follow us on Facebook where we post the event details of upcoming open houses and bake sales.
What flavors do you offer for cupcakes/cakes?
We offer a variety of flavors including, but not limited to, white, almond, chocolate, marble, cookies & cream, funfetti, strawberry, banana, lemon, red velvet, carrot, mint chocolate chip and pink champagne. If you have something else in mind, please let us know when ordering.
What flavors of filling do you offer?
Buttercream is normally used as a filling in all cakes but other options available are strawberry, raspberry, lemon, blueberry, coconut, Bavarian cream, fudge and cream cheese (please note, as a home-cottage bakery, the filling is not made with real cream cheese). Upon request, we can make your cupcakes with filling as well.
What are your prices?
Our prices vary depending on the size, details and complexity of your order. Our regular sized cookies average about 3" and range from $28 to $32 per dozen. Cookies can be individually wrapped for an additional fee. Cupcakes range from $15 to $26 per dozen and cakes start at $3 per slice.
How much notice do I need to give to place an order?
We have many customers who use us on a regular basis for their events and pre-book with us. We recommend 3-4 weeks' notice but at times, we may be able to accommodate on shorter notice.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes. Your deposit of 50% of your total is your confirmation for your order.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We will invoice you through Quickbooks where you can make your payment with a credit card or through PayPal. Other options are Venmo and Cash App.
Do you deliver?
For a fee, delivery is available only for wedding orders and large event orders within an hour's drive.
Can you ship your cookies, cupcakes or cakes?
Per Ohio Department of Agriculture, we only ship cookies within the state of Ohio for a flat shipping fee per address.
Do you offer gluten-free options?
Most of our orders are wheat flour based. Should we have a gluten-free request, we do our best that proper cleaning is done to avoid cross-contamination.
Do you offer consultations and cake tastings for wedding orders?
We offer cake tastings for a fee of $50 and we schedule up to an hour for your consultation and tasting appointments. During this time, we discuss the design, size, flavors and details about your wedding day. At the tasting, you get a choice of 4 flavors. We ask that you bring pictures, a copy of your wedding invitation, color swatch, etc. so we can plan your dream cake.
How can I place my order?
Do you offer cookie decorating classes?
