Thank you for stopping by Viva La Cake Little Shop I am a custom design and made-to-order sugar crafting studio and cold porcelain modeling,

*All of our products are hand-sculpted and artistically crafted. Therefore, no two items will ever be the same. There may be slight variations in colors and shades as well as facial features and expressions.

*Every item is custom made and requires special time and attention. There may be up to a 2 week waiting period before your item is shipped.

*All of our edible creations are made with edible ingredients and are sculpted with a tremendous amount of care & attention. However I use internal supports (like wooden dowels and Styrofoam) for each piece, specially for large pieces, I also add non toxic and food safe ingredients (Tylose) to help with drying process. Understand that even that your piece is edible, is mainly a decoration piece.

*If you are interested in having one-of-a-kind edible figures made, please e-mail me with your request. Because special orders take a bit more time, you may experience a 2 to 3 week waiting period before your custom order is shipped.

*If you are ordering a custom made edible figure for a planned event such as a wedding or quinceañera, it is highly recommended that you provide us with a 2 to 3 month advance notice & purchase. This is solely for scheduling purposes. If you find that you did not meet that reservation time frame, please do not hesitate to e-mail me or convo me to see if we can accomodate your order.

*All of my creations are made-to-order and therefore cannot be returned.

Shipping
Please be aware that a minimum of 10 business days from the date of purchase are required for the creation of all orders. Another 3 to 5 days are required for shipping.

*I only use flat rated boxes for shipping my pieces. Fondant pieces are heavy and most of the time is not easy to calculate shipping fees, specially if piece is shipped to Western states. For each piece I use a larger box than the piece itself, that will assure the piece is centered and protected from possible damage. I use tons of bubble wrap and paper. If you think shipping is expensive, make sure to understand that I am actually making sure your fragile piece gets to you as perfect as possible.

Additional policies and FAQs
All of our edible creations are packaged with the greatest of care and wrapped in sanitary and non toxic materials. It is extremely important to us that your order arrive to you in the same perfect condition as it left my shop and that it is perfectly safe to be placed on your cake or cupcake.

Please be advice that I do not deliver rush pieces during the summer time, you can always order in advance, before heat waves might damage your piece during shipping. Your piece can be kept in perfect shape for many months.

Some topper might be too heavy to be placed on top of a cake, please add some internal support under the weigh of the piece:thick straws, wooden or plastic dowels( cut to the level of the cake,) are a good way to add extra support to the piece.
If your topper will be on top of a buttercream cake, please consider the fact that adding a support under the piece is crucial for the overall look of the cake
Toppers that are tall, might require extra support, talk to your baker about the options, remember that buttercream cakes can be too soft to place the topper. Thinking about opting for a fondant cake instead of buttercream, could be a great difference to place a heavy topper, consider this option specially during the hotter days.
If you need to transport your cake, as a suggestion, add the topper once the cake is sitting on the table, if you drive with the topper on the cake, you might jeopardize the stability of the cake.
Sugar Pieces are susceptible to humidity, please never refrigerate. Keep it in a dry cool area until is ready to be display on your cake.

Keep it away from sunlight, it might make the color to fade.

We guarantee your full satisfaction and look forward to serving you in the future.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Please contact me for any crazy ideas you might have for a cake topper or decoration. Even if is not on my listings, it might be something I can be able to make. A pic or sketch can give a nice idea of what are you looking for

Care instructions

The best way to keep your fondant topper perfect for your event is to keep it away from direct sunlight in a dry, fresh place. Do not refrigerate, condensation can damage your piece. Toppers can last for many years if you keep them away from humidity.

My party is outdoors, can the topper be outside for several hours?

Fondant is sugar, and it can be affected by humidity and extreme temperatures; if your party is outdoor and for many hours, make sure the cake and cake topper is in a fresh area otherwise it can start melting. If you are ordering during the warmest days, make sure the package will not be on your sidewalk under extreme temperatures.

Can I let my Baby eat the topper?

No. Even that the piece is made out of fondant, and it smells good and tastes sweet, I use internal dowels to support structure, also styrofoam to lower the weight of the entire piece and I also add non toxic edible chemicals like CMC or Tylose to accelerate the drying process and keep the piece dry.

My party is next week, can i pay extra for rush order?

Sorry but fondant needs enough time to dry, it depends on the temperature, level of humidity and size of the order: the thicker the fondant, the longer it will take to dry i can probably take rush orders for small pieces like name plaques or baby shoes during winter, but never during summer time. Absolutely I cannot take any rush "custom made" orders.
