We get asked these questions often, and we thought you might be wondering the same too!!! So here’s a bunch of questions and answers that you might find useful to kickstart ur first #CakesforCheer Experience with us!
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I pre-order?
Yes, you can do so via inthebrickyard.com
This is already a pre-order site. We only take pre-orders at this point, and don't have any same-day ready cakes.
Due to the volume of orders versus the size of our tiny team, its the only channel we are taking in orders at the moment to help us better focus on making more cakes for you, so we are not taking manual orders or customised cakes at the moment.
You can order earliest 7 days before or, up to 1 day before your delivery/pickup date. At checkout you can select the date you prefer at the calendar. any day within the next 7 days should show up on the calendar. If you place an order after 10am, the earliest you can get it is 2 days later :)
Do note that the current sellout time is 3-5min (meaning by 9.03-9.05am after we restock at 9am except mondays daily, the website wld be sold out)
Many/all the items are listed as out of stock. How do I get a cake?
We restock our website daily at 9am (except Mon, our only off day) for next day pickup/delivery.
You can check back in the next day as this is the only channel where we are taking in orders at the moment! :) We currently have only 2 bakers and will list as many as the team can possibly bake! Hope to bake for you soon!
I would like to place a new order. How can i do so?
At 9am sharp, cart out the items you like and select a date on the calendar! it will show you available dates that we can bake for. You can select any date that is 1-7 days from the day of your order, to receive your cakes! :)
Do note that the current sellout time is 3-5min, and we don't reserve at the cart, the fastest person to check out all the way through, including payment & keying in of details will secure the cake.
Why are you always sold out?
We only have 2 bakers, and will list as many as they can bake while working 12h and 6 days a wk!
We are looking to hire good bakers with a heart, if you know someone do let them know we are hiring and they can email their resume to us at firstname.lastname@example.org

How long can I keep the cakes for?
Cakes are good for 3 days in airtight containers, fridged. They best consumed at ROOM TEMPERATURE. So please take them out of the fridge 1h before consuming! :) let it soften as butter would after a while, and it would be divine!
If you plan to keep them any longer - i don't know where you get your resistance skills from - you can freeze them in airtight container for up to 2 weeks. Defrost it overnight in fridge when you are ready to have them.
What are your top sellers?
Our pandan cake flavours:
Ondeh-Ondeh, our first and most popular flavour! & Orh Nee.
My personal recommendation:
Pulut Hitam, inspired by J’s mother!
Our Yakun-inspired cake: Kopi pandan peanut butter is also a crowd favourite! Inspired by our favourite set to order in Yakun! - Once D & J had this same set for breakfast for 3 months straight!
What is the weight of your cake?
All cakes weigh differently for the exact same size! So instead of weighing, we measure our cake sizes based on serving size. Currently they are all 1 size: 5.5" whole cake feeds about 6-8 generous slices :)
Our customers always tell us when they order our cakes that #ITBYnoleftovers . Other than the fact that its easy to eat and less sweet, we also make sure our size guide is for small after dinner estimate serving sizes :)
