"Excellence, one slice at a time."
Thank you for visiting Cakes by H and considering it for your upcoming event. I am a State of Maine licensed cake decorator and I make cakes to order for all events. If you have seen a picture of a cake that has appealed to you then feel free to provide it and I can price and duplicate that cake.
Contact me with any questions and for verification of date availability. Remember, it's never too early to order!
At this time, cash and checks are the only accepted forms of payment. See "contact" for mailing address.
*Any returned checks will be subject to a $30.00 Returned Check Fee on top of the original order amount, payable in cash only.
There are two methods of delivery.
One: Cakes can be picked up from my home in Norway.
Two: I will deliver within a 15 mile radius for standard event cakes and a 30 mile radius for wedding cakes. Outside of this delivery area will be at an additional charge. Cake set up, if necessary, is included with all deliveries.
Deposits and Payment Due Dates:
For standard event cakes I require full payment one week prior to the event date. This payment is non-refundable should cancellation be necessary. For all wedding cake orders, I require a non-refundable $50.00 deposit to hold the event date. Full payment is due two weeks prior to the scheduled event, at which time it becomes non-refundable should cancellation be necessary.
Standard Cake Events:
Since custom cakes can come in a variety of shapes and sizes this is just to be used as a guide. See below for serving sizes per shape and size. These prices are based on two layers of cake with standard buttercream icing and filling. See "Cake Information" for other options available at an additional charge.

8" round - $13.00
10" round - $16.00

All 1st birthday cakes come with a complimentary single serving cake for the child.
All wedding cakes are custom made to order and prices are quoted based on the information provided. The following is to be utilized as a guide until details are discussed:
Buttercream Icing - $2.00 per serving
Fondant - $3.50 per serving
Fresh Flowers - You are responsible to order and pay for fresh flowers utilized, from your desired florist, unless otherwise noted. There are some flowers that are considered toxic. It is up to your florist that is providing the flowers to make sure the flowers are safe to be used on the cake. Should you provide your own flowers you should let your florist know that any fresh flowers need to be arranged in containers to avoid contamination and for safety should not be inserted directly into the cake. My preference is to place flowers on the cake myself as long as mutual delivery time can be arranged with the florist. I will purchase and arrange fresh flowers, if desired, at an additional charge.
Icing Flowers - Standard buttercream icing flowers are included in the cost of the cake. Specialty icing flowers - fondant, gum paste, and royal icing are available at an additional charge.
Non-traditional shapes - hearts, squares, petals, hexagons and paisleys are an additional $0.50 per serving.
Rental Pieces - Fees may apply for necessary cake equipment such as pillars, fountains, or platforms. In the event of lost, damaged, or unreturned equipment, steep replacement charges will be levied.
Side sheet cakes and cupcake wedding cakes are available. Prices vary depending upon individual requests.

We were so pleased to find CakesbyH, (as we had not been impressed by some of the other bakeries in the area!) Heidi brings a great ammount of flexibility to the cake creation process- she was more than happy to do whatever we wanted. She was very fast in her communications and always answered my questions with lightning speed (thank you!) Our cake turned out exactly as we imagined it and it was delicious too! The cake was an amazing value- we felt as though we got a huge "bang for our buck." She delivered the cake to our reception site (which was great!) and it looked stunning. We couldn't have been more pleased! She is by far the best choice for cakes in the Oxford Hills area!
