Cupcakes, Minis, & More FAQ - View All FAQs

Do you write on cupcakes?

We can write on cupcakes, but you gotta keep it short! Additional charges will apply.

Can I get special decorations on my cupcakes?

Absolutely – check out our gallery for some of the many beautiful cupcakes our cake artists have created. We are happy to do most anything to your cupcakes. However, depending on the level of difficulty and the amount of time that will be needed to decorate each cupcake, additional charges will apply.

Do you sell cupcake wraps and toppers?

Because there are so many resources and different types of themed parties to be found surfing the web, we only stock a small variety of wraps and toppers. With that being said, we are happy to use any cupcake wrappers or toppers that you bring in to us!

We offer Silver, Black and Gold foil baking cups at no additional charge. Black and Gold baking cups require a minimum of one weeks’ notice.

Do you rent or sell Cupcake Towers?

Yes and Yes! We sell a small cupcake tower that can accommodate up to 25 standard sized cupcakes for $12.99. They are available in White, Black and Silver. Please note that the cupcake towers we sell cannot accommodate a small cake on the top tier.

We also rent cupcake towers that can accommodate 50, 100- 150, and up to 300 cupcakes. Or we recommend www.cupcaketree.com if you’d like to purchase your own.

Do you do wedding cupcakes or special event dessert tables?

Yes! Please email or call us or come in and talk to us about your event and we can create something VERY special for you! If you are renting equipment, an appointment with a wedding cake specialist is recommended. Otherwise any of the retail staff team can assist you with your cupcake order.

How many cupcakes should I order per person?

We recommend one standard size cupcake per person or two minis per person.

How many petit sweets should I order per person?

Generally, one serving is equal to 2.5 “bites”.

Do you offer delivery and set up?

Yes, we do offer delivery and set up. Due to the additional time and staff needed to set up cupcakes and dessert tables, we add an additional $1.00 per piece for set up.

Do you require minimum orders?

Yes we ask for a minimum order of 1 dozen on any cupcakes that are not offered in the store on a daily basis. This applies to minis, special decorations, tinted icings can be ordered by the dozen only. We suggest using colored sugars if you are looking for a variety of colors on smaller orders.

How do I place my order?
  • Call the bakery during business hours: Monday-Friday, 6:30am-5:30pm and Saturdays & Sundays, 7:00am-3:00pm.
  • A VIP membership or full payment is required at the time of order. If paying with EBT, please click here for more information.
  • Two weeks' notice is requested for all special orders; however, call us if needed sooner to discuss how we can accommodate your specific needs.
  • Approval of product is requested at pick up. We are happy to fix anything you are not satisfied with, while at the bakery.
Can I place my order online?

We ask that you place your order by phone (231-726-CAKE or 231-726-2253) so we can clarify the information and ensure accuracy.

Do you require payment or a deposit at the time of order?

Yes, we do ask for full payment at the time of order unless you are a member of our VIP Program. We started asking for pre-payment because of the amount of orders placed and never picked up.  We ask for payment regardless of the quantity ordered. We accept all major credit cards, cash, checks and EBT cash benefits. Click here for more information regarding EBT and deposits.  Learn more about our VIP Program to make ordering easier for you.

How far in advance should I place my order?

During the holidays, graduation season or for large orders, we LOVE at least 2 weeks notice but feel free to call and we’ll see how we can accommodate you if you need something sooner. For smaller orders during the “off season”, just let us know within a week to 4 days and we’ll have your order ready for you!

What if I need to change my order or cancel my cake?

Changes to your order or cancellations will be honored at no charge up to one week prior (7 days) to the scheduled pick up date. If less than a week, there will be an additional charge for changes to design, cake sizes, or cancellations up to 50% of the original cost.

Do you require a minimum order on bakery items?

It depends on what you’re ordering. If it’s something we carry in the store on a regular basis, there are no minimum orders. If it’s for cupcakes, breads, rolls, or other products that are made to order or only carried during the holidays, minimum orders apply as we sell by the batch to minimize waste.

Do you offer quantity discounts?

Yes, we offer a $11 dozen doughnut deal all day, every day, and a quantity discount on our Homestyle cookies (if purchasing 4 dozen or more). We are unable to offer quantity discounts on decorated products (cupcakes, pastries, decorated cookies, etc.) because of the time involved to make each one.

Do you ship your products?

Yes we do ship Butter Thin Cookies and 7”, 8” or 9” round cakes. Because our products are fresh and made without preservatives, we typically ship overnight or 2nd day air to ensure quality.

Cakes are fresh frozen after decorating, put in a Polar Tech shipping system with dry ice to ensure quality and freshness. We charge $50 for the shipping system, dry ice and extra handling required to ship a cake. The $50 is in addition to the actual shipping cost and product cost.

Butter Thin Cookies are stuffed with tissue to ensure they arrive in one piece; shrink wrapped and sent out either 2nd day air or 3 day select. Due to the special packing required, we charge an additional $10 plus the actual shipping charges.

My grandmother had a great recipe…can you make that?

As much as we’d love to be able to accommodate every request that we get, our equipment is very large and when we bake anything, we are making 50 gallon batches; which is enough to make 100 cakes! We don’t have equipment at the bakery small enough to make a single cake.

Can you put “pictures” on cakes?

Yes, we can. Please give us one week to process your image. You are welcome to bring your image into the bakery or e-mail your image to info@rykes.com. If pulling images off line, keep in mind that we are subject to copyright law, so we’ll need written permission from the owner of that image to reproduce it for you on your cake.

Any picture provides must be in JPEG format.

I saw this cute Minnie Mouse cake online, can you make it for me?

Yes and possibly, no. Because we are selling our cakes to you, we are bound by Copyright and Trademark Law. This means that any character that is trademarked, like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, college or company logos and most other characters from popular TV shows and movies are off limits for our bakery to reproduce unless we have written permission from the owner of the copyright or trademark. The reason you see them online is because many of these cakes are being produced by hobby bakers for their families and friends and are not being resold to the public. We are not allowed to make money from someone else’s intellectual property.

We do, however, have a wide variety of “licensed” toys that we can put on your cake. We also have requested permission from many West Michigan High Schools and Colleges to reproduce their logos on our cakes. Please view our list of licensed kits and logos. If what you are looking for is not on our list, feel free to contact that company directly and request written permission. The permission and approved item in a .jpg format can be e-mailed to info@rykes.com. Please include your name and event date in the subject line of the e-mail.

Do you make Sugar Free or Gluten Free baked goods or cakes?

Sadly, we do not make any Sugar or Gluten Free products. We made an attempt, early on, but because we are equipped only for large batches, we had too much waste for the amount of products that were being requested.

Do you use nuts in your products?

Some of our products, like our carrot cake and sweet breads do contain nuts and all of our baked goods are baked in the same kitchen and may not be suitable for individuals with nut allergies.

What is your return policy?

We ask that all products are approved at pick up and due to the nature of our products, we cannot accept returns or issue refunds. However, we want all customers to be 100% satisfied with their Ryke’s Bakery experience. If for some reason you are dissatisfied, please contact the bakery within 24 hours of your purchase and we will do our best to address your concern.

Do you have a mailing list?

We do. To sign up for our occasional e-newsletters & promotions, click here.

Can you make me an adult-themed cake for my bachelor/bachelorette party?

There's too many kids runnin' around here! We choose to keep our cakes rated PG!
