FAQ's & Pricing
A big one, for instance the first thing is that we don't bake everyday. Meaning we bake fresh for what we need, you can be sure that none of your baked goods are ever frozen for weeks or linger around our fridge for days. Second, it means more one on one exclusive attention, when you come to our design studio we want you to sit down and relax and enjoy the experience. A cake boutique means you and the designer will go over all your ideas, questions and concerns to create a wonderful and one of a kind edible masterpiece.
Yes and No. Our Design Studio is open to the public by appointment, and all our baking and decorating is done at our bakery in a separate location, which means no one will ever interrupt you Design Consultation. Clients are our priority and we want to make sure that no distractions ever come in the way. Hence, you cannot come by to pick-up cupcakes since we don't bake everyday. However, you can call the day before so we may accommodate you and have a fresh batch of cupcakes or any other dessert ready for pick up. Upon request your fresh baked goods and sweet can be delivered to you wherever you may be in Miami Dade and Broward.
Yes, we do and it's our Simply Fancy line. We created a simple alternative to those last minute orders for special occasions in which a cake is the only way to honor it. Instead of heading to your local marketplace to pick up a quick cake, that will for sure not look as pretty or taste as good, we decided to create an affordable chic' line of cakes that can be created right away for you. You may place your order early in the day and the cake can be delivered or picked up by you at our studio in the afternoon. This line consists of Vanilla Bean sheet cake all covered in fondant with your choice of filling and decorated in a chic elegant manner. We also use this line often for children's birthday cakes since it provides a quick an affordable solution. Give us a call to find out more about our Simply Fancy Line.
It's all the difference! Using fine ingredients is key to providing you with a high quality product. We don't sacrifice cost and never replace ingredients. You can be sure that all our bakedgoods are made with true original Nielsen-Massey Pure Madagascar Vanilla, Ghirardelli and Callebut Chocolates, Organic Allegro Coffee, Free-range eggs and 100% pure butter. We never use shortening or fillers in any of our icings. And when decorating you can be sure you are also getting the best since we create our own in house gumpaste and poured fondant, we also use the finest english coloring gels in the market to color our fondant and icings.
We can say we are part of the New Miami Concept, as a new Miami generation rises with the great cultural melting pot and a growing new beautiful city, so do we with what we call a little from here and little from over there. These same concepts are kept in mind with all our cakes and sweets, allowing us to bring the best of “All Worlds”. Our recipes are influenced and infused with sweet Latin flavors and fruits, such as Dulce de leche and even the exotic Peruvian Lucuma. Other examples include our Rose Champagne Cake and our Lila's fruit cake or should I say our Aunt Lila's fruit cake which is a family secret that merges together a mix of the old English European fruit cake but infused with Miel de Cana (Honey Cane), Brandy and other exotic secret ingredients. Other influential flavors come from old french recipies such as timeless and elegant macaroons, Italian creams and even some German fillings.
No, we don't. Sugar Fancies is proud to serve good old forgotten favorites and new edgy flavors in the Miami Market, such as Vanilla Bean, Moist Chocolate, Red Velvet, Banana, Rose Champagne, Chocolate Guinness Beer, Amaretto, Expresso, Fruit Cake and many more. We also offer a great variety of delicious fillings and fresh fruit preserves that will encourage you to expand your cake horizons.
Yes, of course! To both. Sugar Fancies bakes by order with the freshest and finest ingredients available providing you with quality and fresh baked goods. However they are not “WET” such as your typical Rum Cake, if you are a lover of the delicious Rum Cake and can't think of cake in any other way, then Sugar Fancies may not be for you. But if you love moist cakes that are not overly sweet and like to experience other kinds of flavors such as Chocolate and Oreo, Banana and peanut butter or maybe some Vanilla and White Chocolate or Mango and Passion Fruit, then you have definitely come to the right place. Sugar Fancies focuses on old forgotten flavors in the Miami market with cakes that are freshly baked and not soaked in sugar, leaving some sweetness space to pair it up with incredible fillings that are made with all natural tropical fruits, fine chocolates, organic trade-free coffees and homemade caramels. Our variety encourages you to experience with different combinations that allows you to create your own distinctive new favorite.
