Q: Why is it called "Jamaica's Cakes"?
A: Because that is the owner's name! It has confused a lot of people who think it's a Jamaican style bakery, but there is nothing "Jamaican" about it. Jamaica got her name from a song her parents listened to on the radio called "Oh Jamaica" by Country Joe McDonald. They thought that it would make a great name and it sure is!
Q: What happens if I need a cake in under 48 hours?
A: Since we make everything, to order, from scratch, we ask for a minimum of 1 week notice. However, we always have fresh 6" and 9" cakes in our front case for any last minute orders or walk-in’s. While we will always try to accommodate last minute orders, sometimes it's just not possible (such as a stacked or 3-D cake).
Q: Are your cakes fresh?
A: Always! We never freeze our cakes and always bake to order. Cakes will lose quality if frozen prior to using.
Q: Are your ingredients all natural?
A: Yes! We use only the best ingredients in all of our products. We use butter, eggs, cream, real vanilla, never using shortening or preservatives. You will taste the difference, for sure!
Q: How much do your cakes cost?
A: It’s really hard to say! Each cake is unique and will have different degrees of difficulties. It will depend on the number of guests you want to feed in addition to the final design elements you want the cake to have. Cakes can range from $25 all the way to $5,000.
Q: Has Jamaica been on TV before?
A: Yes, a lot as a matter of fact! She has appeared on TLC's Ultimate Cake Off, winning with the yellow team. She also appeared on Ultimate Cake Boss, and she was an assistant on Remy's green team. She has also been on Gene Simmons Family Values, Curb Your Enthusiasm, USA's Character Fantasy, Platinum Weddings, Rock the Reception, and HDNet's Deadline. Check out our press section for more info!
Q: I see you're closed on Sundays, will my cake still be good if I pick it up on Saturday?
A: Yes! All of our cakes are good up to 48 hours after picking up from our store. Based on your cake, we will give you the best storing and serving instructions.
Q: Do you offer delivery?
A: Delivery is available but can be limited on weekends as we are typically busy with wedding cake deliveries! There is a minimum delivery charge of $20 which will increase based on distance from our store to the delivery location.
Q: Is parking available?
A: There is plenty of metered street parking both in front of and behind our store, in addition to a shared parking lot just west of our building. Don't forget to pay your meter. They're fast around here!
Q: Do you ship your desserts?
A: Unfortunately, we do not ship our products at this time, but be sure to check back in the future!
