Frequently Ask Questions


When do I need to place my order?

This depends on what you are trying to order. The last you can get an preorder in is 12pm the day before (Saturday noon for Monday orders). However,  we need 48 hours for some products and because we are a small bakery we have a limited capacity for how many cakes we can bake.

I tried to order on the website but I couldn’t select the date?

This might be for a number of reasons.

Firstly, it might be because we aren’t making what you are after that day. For instance we make our Family Chocolate cake on Fridays and Saturdays which means that you wouldn’t be able to place an order for a Tuesday.

Secondly, we may not have opened orders for that date yet – we add new dates about 30 days ahead.

Lastly, it is possible we have already sold out of that item for the day you are trying for.

When does ‘reached capacity’ mean?

We strive to stay small and make everything from scratch which means we have a limited amount of high quality products we can make each day.

On an average Saturday we can reach capacity by Tuesday and when it is a very busy time like Easter or Christmas orders can fill up two weeks ahead.

If you know when you need a cake for place the order as soon as orders open up ( about 30 days prior).  If you are the one responsible for the birthday cake don’t delay.

What are my options if I missed the cut-off?

We make whole cakes everyday but the options can be limited.

If you call us on the day we can let you know what whole cakes we have available.

I selected the wrong date – can I change it?

That depends on what you have ordered. We require between 24-72 hours to prepare your order so it may be too late – but gives send us an email or give us a call and we can let you know if it’s possible.

Do you write on your cakes?

We don’t write directly on our cakes but you can add a ‘cake plaque’ where we can write a note for $9 – we don’t customize our cakes.

Do you make customised cakes?

No, we don’t make any customisations or variations of our cakes.

Can I pick it up at the Markets?

Pick up is only available at The Annexe: 43 Riley Street, Woolloomooloo


Delivery Timeframes?

Standard is between 10AM-6PM
Express is within 3 hours – price is x2
Immediate Priority is within 1-1.5 hours – price is x3

Can I pick up for someone else?

You will need the full name and order details of the person you are collecting for.
Please bring a copy of the order confirmation as this will make the collection of your cake a lot smoother.

Can I order items from the counter when I pick up my pre-order?

Unfortunately, we are unable to take orders from the collection window.
If you have time, feel free to jump in the queue and we’ll take your order and handover your preorder at the same time.

Can I track the delivery of my order?

You will receive an SMS notification from StarTrack once your order has been picked up – this includes an ETA of its arrival. Otherwise, you can call us and we can check it for you.

I want my order to be delivered at a specific time

We use a third-party courier service which means we cannot guarantee a specific delivery time within their standard window (10AM-6PM). If you’re willing to pay extra, we can book in for an express — cost is x2 of the standard (3-hour window) or immediate priority — cost is x3 of the standard (1-1.5 hour window). Let us know your suburb, and the items you’ve ordered and we can give you advice about whether this is possible.

Can I pull up at the front of your shop and you bring me my cake to the window?

NO. The road in front of the Annexe is a bus zone and no-stopping area so it is both unsafe and illegal to park there. We don’t want you to get hurt or fined! There are 1p, 2p and ticketed spots to be found on Riley St, Crown St and Broughton Lane. Alternatively, there are Wilson car parks at the Domain, St Mary’s Cathedral and 70 Riley St.



Do you make wedding cakes?

Though we can tier some of our cakes, unfortunately, we don’t customise them which means they’re available as it is. It’s best that you assemble it yourself as it is precarious to travel a tiered cake. We would hand them over in two seperate boxes as they are best assembled on site. We charge an additional $50 fee to insert structure dowels in the base cake.

Can I book in a catering order?

Yes, you can and we recommend that you call the office at least 48-72 hours for any of this because we have certain numbers that we can only do for this type of order.

I saw that you only make the Family Chocolate on a Friday and Saturday. Can I get one made on a Tuesday?

We love providing you with lots of variety when it comes to cakes, pastries and sweet treats. This means we have a set production schedule for all our specific creams, fillings, icing, pastry making and cake baking.

Dietary Requirements?

We have a few options to meet your dietary needs, however, keep in mind that our products are made in an environment where lots of other lovely things containing eggs, sesame seeds, soy, tree nuts and gluten are made and, therefore, may contain traces of these allergens.

Do you deliver the F & S Book outside Australia?

It is available worldwide as an e-book and through book depository.
