About Great Exbaketations Bakery (GEB)

Great Exbaketations Bakery is a small Albany, NY business specializing in "booze-infused" cakes, such as rum cakes & other freshly baked pound cakes. GEB takes pride in using products from local Upstate NY Distilleries, artisans and makers in our scratch-baked, made-to-order cakes. The menu has expanded to include vegan cakes, as well as other treats like bourbon brownies.

Owned and operated by Cheyenne Simmons, a long-time resident and native of the Capital Region. Proudly Black-owned!

Great Exbaketations offers cakes in two convenient sizes: Full-size cakes are 10" and serve 10-12, and Mini Bundts are 6" and serve 4-6. Seasonal cakes will vary and be updated on the website and social media outlets. All cakes will contain wheat, eggs and alcohol unless otherwise noted.

Orders can be placed online 24 hrs a day, orders are processed Monday-Friday from 9 to 4. Please allow 3-5 business days for order fulfillment, as cakes are made to order. If you need to cancel an order, please do so within 2 hours of order placement.

Great Exbaketations Bakery does not accept returns or issue refunds; if you're dissatisfied, please contact me, Cheyenne, to make it right!

Frequently asked questions

What is the best way to store my cakes?

Great Exbaketations cakes should be stored in a cool, dry place wrapped in plastic wrap or aluminum foil (or in a cake saver). Cakes will keep for up to 2 weeks, as the alcohol acts as a natural preservative. Refrigeration is not necessary or recommended as it tends to dry out your cake.

Can I freeze my GEB cakes?

Yes! Great Exbaketations cakes can be frozen in a sealed FREEZER bag for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then allow to come to room temperature before enjoying.

Does my GEB cake contain alcohol?

Yes! There is a moderate amount of uncooked rum/liqueur in each glaze used to make your special "booze-infused" cake. It is not recommended to serve these cakes to children or those that cannot tolerate alcohol for any reason.
(P.S. As of April 2020, Virgin cakes are available for kids/non-partakers!)

Are GEB cakes vegan?

As of June 2020, Great Exbaketations Bakery offers vegan/plant-based versions of some of your favorite cakes!

How many people can I serve from one GEB cake?

Great Exbaketations cakes are offered in two convenient sizes for your serving needs. Full-size cakes are 10" and serve 10-12; mini bundt cakes are 6" and serve 4-6.

Are GEB cakes gluten free?

Great Exbaketations Bakery does not currently offer gluten-free options.

How will my cake(s) be shipped?

All cakes are shipped via USPS Priority Shipping, with a typical delivery time of 2-3 days. Cakes are shipped individually plastic-wrapped, then further wrapped in bubble wrap. All cakes in an order shipping to the same address are shipped together in one box.

Express Shipping: Express Shipping can be accommodated if requested (add in the “Note” section at checkout), under the following conditions: 1) customer is 100% responsible for the shipping cost; 2) there must be at least 36 hrs between the time the order is placed and the day the cake is to ship; 3) customer understands that per Shop Policy, there are no refunds on purchases. Please message the Shop Owner for any other questions.
