Custom Cakes Adelaide



Custom Cakes Adelaide


Creating Edible Masterpieces


Located in Valley View South Australia Custom Cakes hand makes and designs cakes for all occasions, servicing all areas. Tracey needs only 14 days notice for birthday and novelty cakes with 4 weeks required for wedding cakes. All cakes are made from scratch with sugar flowers being made by hand. At Custom Cakes Adelaide you get more than just a cake, you get an edible masterpiece made to your specifications and colours.

When our photographer Samantha had an 18th birthday we decided to do a mystery shop online for the cake. Initially coming across Custom Cakes Adelaide on Facebook we visited their site and were impressed with what we saw. From initial contact with Tracey to the delivery of our cake we couldn't be happier. Tracey was efficient, polite, courteous and very helpful at all times. She was more than helpful with ideas to meet the party theme of naughty or nice and worked alongside us making sure the day was special.

So how do you freight a cake 444km's across a state? A question that Tracey went out of her way to answer and a problem she worked alongside us to solve. With our heart set on the design that Tracey had come up with for us we were soon to discover that there is not a courier company in South Australia who would deliver food products. Feeling disheartened but not that all was lost we continue to work with Tracey to find another solution. Along came Premier Stateliner Coach Group to help us out. They were more than happy to cart our cake on their coach from Adelaide to Millicent making sure we got it on time. Tracey was more than willing to make sure the cake and cake pops were delivered to the bus depot in Adelaide very early in the morning for collection by ourselves late that afternoon. We could not have asked for better service from Tracey or from Premier Stateline.


During the cake making process Tracey kept us up to date with the stages, sending us photo's of the final product after confirming whether we wanted photo's or preferred it be a surprise. We did not find seeing the cake before it arrived ruined the event, it only added to our anticipation and excitement of the arrival. When the cake and cake pops arrived they were more amazing than we had anticipated. All were packaged securely, although we did loose a few of the cake pops, this not being due to packaging but due to the risk we took with design. As this was the first time Tracey had delivered a cake in this manner it was a learning experience for her which she coped with without a hint of nervousness and with professionalism and positivity.



Custom Cakes Adelaide provide cakes in various different shapes and flavours. We chose chocolate and chai latte and were not disappointed. The cakes were moist and flavoursome with guests talking about the chai latte cake weeks later. The cake pops were flavoured the same as the cake and complimented it immensely. The cake was definitely the discussion of the party....... a masterpiece that really was too good to cut.

We couldn't have been more happier with Custom Cakes, the service and the delivery. We found the prices to be more than reasonable for the time spent working with us on the design and for what we received as the final product. Tracey is a credit to herself, working diligently and professionally. She is more than just a cake decorator she is an artist with talent and flair.
