FAQ


What should the size of my cake be? If I want everyone at my party to get a slice at least.

After bringing countless cakes to our own parties and considering feedback received from our customers, we have concluded that these numbers are a good gauge:

Single tier cakes (with 3 layers of sponge)
5.5" Round Cake: 8 pax
8" Round Cake: 15 - 20 pax
10" Round Cake: 40 pax
12" Round Cake: 55 pax
12" x 15" Rectangular Cake: 80 pax

Two tier cakes (each tier with 4 layers of sponge)
5.5" on 8": 45 pax
7" on 10": 70 pax
4" on 7" on 10": 90 pax


How may I best enjoy my cake? 

Buttercream cakes are best enjoyed when the buttercream is soft.To achieve that, take your cake out of the fridge 1 to 2 hours before you plan to consume it.

A good gauge would be taking the cake out at the start of your meal. By the time you and your friends/family have finished eating, the buttercream would have soften sufficiently - just in time for dessert!


Does ITBY deliver? 

Yes, we do! We deliver from Tuesday to Sunday, in one hour slots between 11am - 5pm. Our delivery fee ranges from $15 - $25, depending on where you want your cake to be delivered to. The fee takes into consideration the extra mile our trusted drivers have to go to, in order to deliver your cake safely and soundly.

If you need your cake on a Monday, we advise you to get it delivered on a Sunday instead as we are closed on Mondays. Our cakes can be kept overnight, without any compromise on taste, texture or quality, so long as it has not been cut into - so don't worry about getting your cake on Sunday!

If you have difficulties storing your cake overnight, let us know here or Whatsapp 82880402! Our drivers can make a special delivery at an additional $10 instead. Pick-ups are not available on Mondays.


How long can I keep my cake out of the fridge?

Our buttercream cakes can be left in a cool air-conditioned room for 2 to 5 hours.

Otherwise, try as much as possible to keep your cake in the fridge. Especially if you're going to keep it overnight!


How long can I keep my cake after cutting it?

Our cakes can be kept up to about 3 days after it has been cut. To preserve it better, keep your cake back into the cake box and cover the entire box with clingwrap.

Remember to take it out of the fridge 1 to 2 hours before consumption to allow the buttercream to soften!


How far in advance should I place my order?

The lead time required for each individual product can be found under the "to note" tab. For your convenience:

For 5.5" and 8" cakes, at least one week is required for your order to be secure.

If you are working with a tight, short timeline, you can still send in your order. However, we will confirm with you if we can or cannot fulfill your desired order in time. If we can't, we will suggest alternatives and try our best to assist you! We always bake some extras for last minute orders.

At least one week is required for 10" cakes, 12"cakes, tiered cakes, daily bakes, Petit Four and cupcakes.

If you're thinking of getting a cake with customized flavours and/or designs, at least two weeks is required!


Which cake would you recommend?

We would highlight the Asian-inspired flavours that are unique to us: Thai Milk Tea, Ondeh Ondeh, Pulut Hitam and Matcha Yuzu.

With that said, we understand that taste is subjective and our recommendations might not appeal to you. Don't worry! As every cake flavour and design is a result of careful consideration and deliberation, we are certain that our cakes have been crafted to perfection

We advise you to order the flavour you feel most drawn to. We will do the flavour justice!
