About Yummies

Yummies is a boutique cake studio operated by Jayne Baratta and her husband Mark. Our studio is located in Kirrawee, in the southern suburbs of Sydney. Yummies doesn’t have a shop front, but consultations can be organised by appointment for wedding cakes and other large celebration cakes.

 

About Jayne

I have always been creative, and passionate about designing and making. Growing up in family where everything was hand made, I developed many skills in the kitchen and other areas of the home.

I continued to use and nurture my design skills, undertaking University studies to becoming a Design and Technology Teacher. This study and then teaching Food Technology, Hospitality – Kitchen operations, Design and Technology and Textiles and Design over a number of years, has given me a strong knowledge of food handling and also allowed me to continue being creative and enthusiastic about designing.

I have developed my skills in the art of cake decorating by undertaking courses with local and International cake artists.

I have always enjoyed cooking and preparing food, especially sweets and desserts, with many friends often affectionately calling me the ‘Cupcake Queen’. After years of making special food treats for my family and friends, I decided to turn this passion for baking and decorating into a business. In 2009 Yummies – Cakes and Special Treats was born.

 

Pricing

Our products are all made to order to meet the individual requirements and specifications of our customers, so it is difficult to provide a price list. We price our cakes according to the number of serves, which effects the size and/or number of cake/s required, the design work involved in the planning, the complexity and intricate handwork involved in the creation, the cake type and flavour, icing types used (please note that chocolate ganache layers are used as a foundation under all fondant covered cakes, this makes them really yum) and the time it takes to complete each individual order.

All bookings will be finalised with a written quote, based on discussions with the customer. This quote will set the price for the cake/food products to be supplied by Yummies.

We generally find that our customers still like to have some idea/guide of costs when planning their next event or celebration. So we have included some general starting prices for our products and cakes below. These serve only as a starting reference for prices.

FAQ


Q How long before my function/event do I need to place an order?

A To avoid disappointment it is never too early to place an order with Yummies, especially if you are planning a Wedding or other large scale function. You don’t want to miss out in periods of high demand. We require 2 weeks notice for small orders of 50 or less individual serve foods (cupcakes, cookies, mini dessert sweets & cocktail foods). If you are ordering a custom made fondant cake or large quanties of individual serve foods it is best to book in 4-8 weeks prior to your required date to allow for us to accurately quote a package for you and to give us ample time to discuss the design requirements and menu options with you. If there are late requests we are always happy to try and help to accommodate your needs, although our first priority will have to be with long standing bookings.


Q Does Yummies have a retail shop or showroom that we could visit?
A Yummies does not have a shop front or showroom open to the public. We are predominantly an internet based business with most customers preferring to contact and discuss their needs via e-mails. We are of course also contactable via phone. For your special occasions such as weddings we are happy to arrange an appointment for you to visit our cake studio to discuss and plan your cake in person.


Q Is it necessary to store the cake or cupcakes in the fridge?
A Our cakes are actually best stored out of the refrigerator before they are displayed and eaten. The conditions inside the refrigerator can be very drying on cakes and can cause more harm than good. Refrigeration can also create white spots on ganache icing, it can cause any colourings used in fondant or buttercream icings to bleed and the high humidity and moisture level within the refrigerator can create a sticky feel and appearance on the outside surface of fondant icing which will diminish the aesthetic appearance of your cake. Cakes and cupcakes are best keep in a cool, dry environment, away from direct sunlight prior to been displayed and served. Once served cut cake is best stored in the refrigerator, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or in an air tight plastic container as it will be prone to drying out. Leftover portions of our cakes also freeze well for eating later.


Q Does Yummies offer gluten free cakes and products or options for special dietry requirements?
A For special requests Yummies can create some products in a gluten free form. However please note that our kitchen is not an exclusively gluten free environment, so we cannot certify 100% for people highly sensitive to gluten products. For any other requirements such as dairy or nut allergies, please contact us to discuss as we are always willing to try and accommodate your needs if we can.


Q What areas do you deliver to?

A We offer free delivery within the Sutherland Shire and St. George District for orders over $200. Delivery can be arranged to all areas of the Sydney Metro area. Delivery charges will apply.


Q Does Yummies make cakes with fresh cream fillings?
A No. Yummies specialty is in creating shaped fondant covered cakes. In order to hold their shape, these cakes are best made out of dense cakes with solid fillings such as mudcake. As such, fresh cream fillings are generally not suitable.


Q Can my cake have fresh flowers on it?
A Yes it can. You can either have your florist place the flowers or we would be happy to arrange it for you.


Q When do I pay for my cake?
A We require full payment of your cake 5 business days prior to your event. A deposit of 25% is required to be paid on placement of your order to secure your booking


Q On a multi-tiered cake can each tier have a different flavour?
A Absolutely. You can have any of our flavours per tier.

"I could not fault the beautiful cake we ordered from Yummies from the first contact until the delivery of the cake. The service was prompt, there was an immediate reply to my initial request, the cake was delivered precisely on time and when it arrived it surpassed my expectations. Then, after all the "oohs" and "aahs" from our guests the cake itself tasted absolutely beautiful. I would recommend Yummies to anyone wishing to purchase an extraordinary cake."
