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

Yes, we do ask for full payment at the time of order. We started asking for pre-payment because of the number of orders placed and never picked up. We ask for payment regardless of the quantity ordered. We accept all major credit cards, cash, and checks.

How far in advance should I place my order?

During the holidays, graduation season, or for large orders, we love at least a two-week notice but feel free to call, and we will see how we can accommodate you if you need something sooner. For smaller orders during the off-season, just let us know within a one-week to 72 hours before pick up, 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 one week's notice is given there will be an additional charge for changes to the design, cake sizes, or cancellations. If the cake has been completed, we will not be able to cancel the order.

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 regularly, there are no minimum orders. If it’s for cupcakes, loaves of bread, rolls, or other products made to order or only carried during the holidays, a minimum quantity order will apply as we sell by the batch to minimize waste.

Do you offer quantity discounts?

Yes, we offer a $14 dozen doughnut deal every day. We do not offer quantity discounts on decorated products (cupcakes, pastries, decorated cookies, etc.) because of the time involved to produce.

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

As much as we would love to accommodate every request, however, we are producing 50-gallon batches, which is enough to make 100 cakes! We don’t have equipment 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 drop the image off to us or e-mail the image to us at: info@rykes.com

If you are pulling images from the internet, 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 provided must be in JPEG format.

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

At Ryke's Bakery, we respect the intellectual property rights of others and do not produce trademarked items such as Disney characters, college logos, company logos, or other copyrighted characters from TV shows and movies without written permission from the copyright or trademark owner. Keep in mind that when you see these types of cakes online, they are typically made by hobby bakers for personal use and not for sale to the public. We will only generate revenue from someone else's intellectual property with written permission.

However, we do offer a variety of licensed toys that can be placed on your cake, and we have obtained permission from many West Michigan high schools and colleges to reproduce their logos on our cakes. Please check out our list of licensed kits and logos. If you don't see what you're looking for, please contact the company directly and request written permission. Then, send the written permission and the approved item in JPEG format to info@rykes.com, and 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?

In summary, we offer flourless cakes for those with mild allergies or dietary restrictions, but we are not a certified gluten-free bakery and cannot guarantee that our products are free from cross-contamination. We do not currently make sugar-free products due to limited demand and production limitations.

Do you use nuts in your products?

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

What is your return policy?

At Ryke's Bakery, we ensure customer satisfaction by requiring approval of all orders at the time of pick-up. Unfortunately, our products are perishable and thus we cannot accept returns or issue refunds. If you have any issues with your purchase, please reach out to the bakery location where the order was received within 24 hours of your purchase and we will work to resolve your concern.
