How soon do I need to order a cake?
We suggest ordering 2-3 days in advance (order earlier for major holidays and weekends) in order to get your preference of cake batter, icing and decoration.
What cake options are available with online ordering?
We offer many of our most popular cake decorations for online ordering. You can customize your cake by choosing from a variety of cake flavors and fillings. All of our cakes available online are iced with our famous french buttercream.
Can I order a cake online with chocolate icing?
Many of our decorations are not compatible with chocolate icing. They just don't look nice and do not meet our quality standard of providing you a show piece cake. To ensure that you are pleased with the the look of your cake, we only offer cakes iced with french buttercream for online ordering. If you are interested in customizing your cake with chocolate icing, please call us to place your order and to inquire about decoration choices.

Can I design my own cake?
Certainly! We do offer custom decorating which does incur an additional charge, based on how time consuming the design would be to decorate.
Can you draw a copyrighted design on my cake?
We uphold copyright regulations so we offer officially licensed figurines or Edible Images of popular images.
Can I put a picture on the cake?
Yes, we can scan a picture or logo on any size cake for an additional charge. Pictures can be dropped off at Bethel Bakery or emailed to info@BethelBakery.com in a jpg or gif format. Size of pictures on cakes are scaled to size of cake with the maximum of a 7”x10” image on half sheet cakes or larger. Create a theme and order picture cookies with your cake.
What is half and half?
Half and Half traditionally refers to yellow batter and chocolate batter. For no additional charge you may also have white batter and chocolate batter. Our sheet cakes have the batters side by side and round cakes are one layer yellow or white on top and one layer of chocolate underneath. NEW! For an additional charge we also have almond as a choice in your half and half cakes.
Can I get a filling in a sheet cake?
Yes, we will split the sheet cake and fill with your choice of one of our delicious fillings for an additional charge.
Should I refrigerate my cake?
If your celebration is same day or the next day, there is no reason to refrigerate unless your cake is custard filled, chocolate fudge filled or iced, cream cheese or whipped cream iced. If your celebration is more than two days away, your cake will keep better in the refrigerator. On hot, humid days of summer it is always best to refrigerate your cake.
