Can I order a cake or cupcakes for tomorrow?

We will do our best to accommodate any order. While we cannot typically confirm your order immediately, we can take your request and call you back to confirm. Typically a rush fee will apply. Refer to our cake ordering page at http://www.zestbakery.com/orders/cake-order-request/

Can I order 20 of something for later today/this weekend?

If we have availability, we will do our best to accommodate your request. Please e-mail orders@zestbakery.com with contact information including a phone number to reach you, your full name, and the item requested as well as an alternative item if the item requested is unavailable.

What is the best way to store everything?

If your items are not going to be consumed in 1 day, keep wrapped at room temperature in a cool environment. We do not recommend refrigerating our products because, while this will slow mold growth, food will stale more quickly than leaving it out. If wrapped tightly, most products can be frozen for up to 1 month.

Can I place an order without paying?

All orders must be prepaid.

What is the calorie count for this item?

We do not currently have this information available.

Which products are sugar-free? Can I request less sugar to be put in my pastry/bread?

As baking is a science, our recipes cannot be altered for your specific request. Our pastries are made in batches, preventing small portions to be changed. In addition, altering the quantity of any item in a baked recipe can drastically affect its outcome. For cakes, we would be happy to apply limited frosting or a “naked” decoration on a cake upon request.
