Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you?

Cake Warehouse is made up of Kirstin who is the email replier, order updater, buyer and general cake brain, Mary is the order packer and stock receiver, and Dave is the website guru and happy to be a taste tester.

Where is your shop?

Cake Warehouse is an online only store, this means that we can focus on getting orders out fast and keeping prices lower. We have an office/warehouse space but we don’t operate as a shop.

How long does it take to receive my order?

Depending on your location, shipping is 1-2 days for urban addresses, 3+ days for rural addresses. You can find more details here. If you are under time pressure to receive your order, make sure you check all our shipping information before ordering 

I've ordered last minute, can I get my order prioritised!?

We don't offer priority shipping, BUT here's why: ALL OF OUR ORDERS ARE PRIORITY. We offer the same, fast service to everyone and we don't charge any extra for it. We know it can be stressful ordering online with time pressure but we do work as quickly as possible to ensure your order goes out as soon as we can. Please make sure you check our shipping info for all the details and any important updates.

How do I know when my order has shipped?

Our courier pick ups are only in the afternoon so you may not receive an update until later in the day. When your order is packed, you'll receive an email update including tracking information. Unfortunately we don't reply to queries about order updates during the day unless there's a problem. You can log into your account and check for updates at any time if no emails have come through (they may have been stopped by the spam filter). If your order is updated to shipped after 3pm, it may not be picked up by the courier until the next working day.

How does Humm work?

Humm spreads your order payment into installments over 10 weeks. This means you can buy in bulk or order in advance without having to pay the full cost up front. It's like a Laybuy, only you get your order straight away!

If you aren't already an Humm customer, you can sign up during checkout. The process only takes a minute. If have already signed up, you'll be prompted to log in to complete your order.
