Is there a minimum order?

What is the difference between Custom Cakes & Rustic Floral Series?
For all Commission Cakes, you get to customise your cake from head to toe, it can be done in form of cake painting, sugar flowers of your choice, frills design and so much more. For more designs, you may take a look at this page: https://www.winifredkristecake.com/customized-cakes/
For Rustic Floral Cakes, these cakes are considered semi-custom cakes. Mainly finished in a beautiful rustic buttercream finish, then adorned with Sugar Flowers handmade by us, lesser customisation is available here, however, you do get to choose the colour scheme of your choice, and you may leave the rest to us. As of February 2022, we have stopped our service of doing Rustic Floral Cakes to put more focus and attention on our Commission Cake assignments.
Are your cakes certified Halal?
No, our cakes are not certified Halal.
How can I try your cake flavours?
Currently, we do not have tasting boxes. Feel free to email us to understand the flavours we are providing at the moment.
Do you do birthday cakes?
Yes. Similarly, all cake orders have to meet the min. price of SGD1500.
Do you do non-fondant cake?
Winifred Kriste Cake specializes in haute couture designer cakes and sugar flowers crafted on fondant-base finishing; a porcelain-like surface on the cake which allows exploration of art techniques like water-colour painting and embroidery effects.

My event venue is non-air-conditioned; will I still be able to order a fondant cake?
Fondant cakes are best preserved in air-conditioned rooms. However if you do not have one, we would suggest leaving the cake out for at most 1 hour, it’s also okay to leave it out for a longer period of time, but the fondant may start to ‘perspire’ as condensation happens due to the high humidity level in Singapore.
What is the size of each serving of cake?
All our cake tiers will be 4.5” tall. The standard industry size of each serving for wedding cakes is measured 1” x 1” x 4.5” tall.
I only like to serve a small number of people but I would like to have an incredible tall-looking cake,
how should I go about doing that?
You may choose to only have 1 or 2 real cake tiers, and all other tiers to be dummies. Price will still be dependent on the cake design, and if you go for some dummy tiers the price will be lower as compared to it being all real tiers.
What is the lead-time to make an order?
At least 1 month, we take orders 1 year in advance.
For an exquisitely designed cake, ordering between 3 – 6 months in advance is the best; loads of time to discuss details, book the slot (as full reservation only occurs when the 50% deposit is received) and to create your cake. Deal is, the earlier the more time we have to discuss and design your specialty cake.
Design & Pricing
Can you do a cake design exactly like how we referred you to making?
Our work is art- the creation of the order is an art and may be subjected to minor deviations from the design sketch and/ or design or description.
Can I change the design after I have set it?
Once the design is set during appointment, reasonable changes to your order may be made; additional charges may be incurred depending on the nature of the changes. The order must still meet the minimum, excluding fees and delivery.
However no changes can be made 1 month prior to the event date.
What is the price of a commission cake?
All commission cake pieces go through a thorough and detailed process of discussion and designing.
The price of a custom cake design varies quite a bit by design, ingredients and techniques used to achieve a certain look- a min. order for a custom commissioned cake piece starts from SGD1500 (min. of 2 tiers).
Prices increase accordingly with the:
- Size of tiers
- Complexity of design
- Workmanship level
- Colour palette
Is a deposit required to secure my cake order?
Yes. A 50% deposit is required to secure the slot. As all our cake orders are taken via appointments, the earlier you reach us, the higher the chances you will be able to secure the slot.
What methods of payment do you accept?
For all cake orders, you may do so through Internet Baking, Bank Transfer or Paynow/ QR code.
For workshops, you may do so via PayPal/ Credit Cards/ Atome Installment.
Does the price include delivery & set up?
No. The price we quote you is purely for the cake design. Delivery and set up is charged separately between SG$50 – SG$80 depending on the size of cake and your event location.
All our cakes will be presented on a cake stand, hence we provide a cake stand with a security deposit tied to it. It will be fully refunded should the cake stand be returned to us in its original condition.
What are the delivery times?
Earliest time for delivery is 10am, and the latest is 7pm.
Can I do self-collection?
We welcome self-collection but you will have to take care of your order. Our responsibility ends once the cake is out of our studio. As most of our cakes are tall and heavy, we would strongly recommend you to have us deliver it for you.

Winifred Kristé Cake's Sugar Flower creations are renowned for the unique colour choices and cohesive cake design. If you’re looking to elevate your designs and expand your own repertoire of skills to take your portfolio to the next level, you’ll love the level of detail in this course. Beyond the basics, you will also learn about conceptualising a cake design, bringing your inspiration to life and other important techniques on creating textures on your cake to pull everything together.
Most importantly, we update our courses annually whenever there is new inputs. So you are paying a one time payment for constantly renewed content.

If I have any questions while learning from the online classes, will I be able to ask Winifred on my progress
and check in with her?
Absolutely! We understand that learning is not a linear process, and sometimes we will get into little problems that we are not familiar with. Our support system is always here, all students will get an invitation to join our Private FB Group, where all fellow students and creatives will be able to connect, communicate and help each other grow while learning. Winifred will also be there to answer any questions you may have.
Will I be able to get a refund if the course is not a good fit for me?
Yes, we are confident that what we have included in this course far exceeds what you are paying for. So we are giving you 48 hours to explore it in full. If after exploring the course, you don't feel like it is the right fit for you, let us know within 48 hours (including helping us answer a questionnaire)- and we will process the refund for you.
Do note that once you opt for refund, you will also automatically be removed from our Private FB Community- that means you are also opting out of future useful tips and tricks that Winifred will be sharing exclusively to the group.
