If you would like to order a Custom Cake please send us your inquiry and we can get right back to you via email. Custom cakes typically require 7-10 days advance notice. Sign up for our newsletter below so you can stay up to date on all the Oakleaf happenings! While we might be world famous for our amazingly artistic wedding cakes and sculpted cakes, what truly makes our bakery special receives much less publicity: effort.

It's our secret ingredient. We don't have to grind each cup of coffee individually, or hand squeeze our orange juice a cup at a time, or insist that everything we bake and sell is made on-site from raw ingredients. If we could bring ourselves to use mixes, or frozen doughs, or a buttercream recipe that doesn't take 5x longer to make, our lives would be much easier - but that's not who we are.

We are here because some things are more important than profit margins, convenience or cheap calories. If we don't make life-sized cakes of Star Wars characters, few others can, and if we don't serve the type of skill and labor intensive foods that we serve, no one else will.
Highlights

read more › Oakleaf Cakes Bake Shop was founded by Amanda Oakleaf in 2008 in the mini-kitchen of a Boston studio apartment. Demand grew rapidly, and in the spring of 2010, Amanda, along with her husband Tyler opened their first storefront in Winthrop, MA. In 2013 the store again expanded, moving to its current location in Boston, right next to Symphony Hall. Coming from meager origins with not much capital or resources, our constant and unwavering focus from the very beginning has been on achieving the absolute highest possible quality in everything we do.

You can also check out our blog and our Twitter Feed for all the updates on our various cake adventures! I've already had a chance to check out the basic pricing and flavor information on this website.

read more › Not satisfied with making seven foot tall movie characters out of cake, we decided to try our hand at coffee. When we opened our first storefront in Winthrop the space was not set up for serving coffee, but with our move to Boston in the fall of 2013 we thought we'd give it a try. Naturally we way out-did ourselves. Sure we could have opted for a middle of the road coffee set up, with fancy machines that did most of the work for us, but where's the fun in that? No, instead we opted to grind every single cup of coffee and espresso by hand to order.

To make sure that our tea is top notch, we brew only MEM loose leaf teas. MEM Tea Imports is another exceptional local business that is almost as famous for the quality of their teas as we are for cake! To make sure that your tea is brewed to perfection, we hot brew each of our teas using our aeropress brewing machines. This allows us to custom tailor the perfect brew cycle for each strand of tea we serve.

read more › Squeezed to order Specialty Drinks (and not squeezed, but still really awesome) Hot Chocolate. If you buy orange juice from a store, it's often undergone various types of treatment - most of it to the point where it can barely be described as juice anymore. Even if you get the most premium, 100% natural, guaranteed to be the real-deal juice, the extraction methods used by large commercial juicers often compromise the juice by inevitably mixing it with bitter outer rind of the orange. Our squeezing process avoids this.

read more › Serve at room temperature. Our cake, being baked fresh from scratch, needs 3+ hours to return to room temperature from being chilled before eating. A cake, much like any real baked good, will be hard and dry if served cold. So please handle your cake with the care it deserves by serving it at room temperature! Each cake is comprised of: 3 layers of cake, filled with 2 layers of and frosted with our famous, light-and-silky Italian meringue buttercream or our fluffy vegan frosting.

read more › Designer cakes are limited in style to save you money. We have pre-designed these cakes to be fun and decorative without breaking the bank. Therefore, we do not allow customizations to our designer cakes beyond simple color swapping of existing elements and adding a message. You simply choose a cake, and that's what it looks like: no fuss, no worries! Designer cakes are built to be as tasty as all of our custom cakes, with each slice being comprised of: 3 layers of cake, 2 layers of our famous vanilla Italian meringue buttercream, an outer buttercream crumb coat and a thin layer of our delicious, home-made marshmallow fondant.

read more › If you can dream it, we can make it out of cake. Sculpted cakes are cakes that don't look like cakes, but rather they look like hand bags, and pillows, and sharks, and other things you might not otherwise eat. Everything you see in this gallery is made out of cake, and sugar, and good stuff! When requesting a sculpted cake, keep in mind that in order for us to sculpt an object out of cake it needs to have adequate girth to it somewhere, so we can put cake in there. We could make a cake version of your very skinny Apple laptop, but fitting cake in would force us to skew its proportions.

read more › If you're having a stylish event, especially a wedding, it demands to have a centerpiece - and let's face it, nobody's having their picture taken with the pesto. Our cakes are delicious, but just as important, they are something you'll have photos and fond memories of for years to come. People often ask us, "Isn't it a shame to eat something so beautiful?" Our answer is simple: No. What would be a shame is if you didn't eat it. While a cake's material life may be short, it is remembered far longer and more fondly than most sculptures, paintings or more permanent forms of art could ever hope to be.

read more › No birthday celebration is complete without a slice of cake! Birthday cakes have come a long way from the old fashioned frosting balloon poofs and silly plastic clown heads for decorations. We do our best to keep up with the growing popularity of themed birthday parties and can create themed birthday cakes to match your event using just about anything as inspiration; from your child's favorite character, toy, or even story book. When ordering a custom birthday cake, keep in mind that every cake is custom and rather than just copy a cake from our gallery below we'd really love to create something special and entirely custom for your event.

Send us images of these ideas and we'll be excited to create a custom design perfectly suited for celebrating your growing family! The exact price of a cake is dependent on its size and detail.

read more › Birthday cakes, anniversary cakes, graduation cakes, corporate party cakes: you name it, we've done it! It doesn't really matter what the occasion is, cake will make it better and more memorable. The exact price of a cake is dependent on its size and detail. Our general pricing guideline is $6 per serving plus $75 per hour of additional decorating required to create the design.

read more › A really unique and extra special way to customize any cake is to add a hand-sculpted sugar figurine. Our cake artists sculpt these figurines out of fondant and gumpaste so they are entirely edible. We do, however, recommend that after your cake has been eaten, simply keep your figurine dry at room temp and it will last a long time. Figurines are made of sugar but don't taste nearly as good as the cake itself. They make better keepsakes than snacks. When ordering a figurine for your cake, keep in mind that in order for us to sculpt a person or character out of sugar we'll first need some reference material.

read more › Dessert Bars can be baked to simply provide an array of delicious goodies or built to match a certain color scheme/theme as seen below.

read more › It's really, really hard to taste cake over the internet, so we decided to help you out by making this super handy flavor chart, so you can visually see how all of our cakes and buttercreams stack up in terms of both texture and sweetness! You can customize the inside of your cake just as much as the outside with our mix-and-match flavor chart. The top of our handy dandy chart lists all the flavors of cake we can bake. The flavors listed in peach colored circles can be done in either custom cakes or cupcakes.

read more › Cake tastings are available for large and complex custom cakes. The most enjoyable part of wedding or party planning is the cake tasting/design consultation session - and not just because you're eating scrumptious cake! This is where you get to sit down with us, one-on-one, and plan the unique design of your cake. Since every cake we create is one-of-a-kind, we encourage you to bring in your own ideas: pictures, invitations, printouts, fabrics, flowers, you name it. For the tasting we provide several of our freshest cake and buttercream flavor combinations along with a sample of our hand-made marshmallow fondant.
