Another hit from Great Exbaketations! We tried the Almond Elation cake and it was delicious and beautiful.

This was a gift for my son and family. They said it tasted good. The cake didn’t appear to have any glazing on top and suggested a lemon glaze on top would have made it superb!

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.
