Acceptable forms of payment?
Do you ship?
What about special dietary needs?
Do you make donations?
So while our pastry donations are spoken for, sometimes we have gift cards available for raffles. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
Payment policy for custom designs?
To reserve your date in advance, full payment of your order is required.
Do you do marble cake?
Unfortunately not, sorry about that!
The best way to serve my cake?
If the cake is still pretty chilly on the inside, try dipping your knife in hot water for 10 seconds and wiping it off before slicing. Dip and wipe the blade between cuts to clean it, so each slice of cake has clean, pretty edges!
Can I place a pre-order?
Yes – we love pre-orders! For morning pastries like croissants and muffins, you can call by 2:00 PM the day before. For signature cakes, we ask for 48 hours notice. If you’re looking for a custom cake, we typically need 1 week notice, but it’s subject to availability. Please give us a call at 617-926-2747 to check our schedule.
Do you deliver?
How should I store baked goods?
Desserts with cream, such as eclairs, cupcakes, and cakes, should be refrigerated. Cakes can be taken out 30-45 minutes before serving so that the buttercream is smooth and soft.
When should I order my cake?
If you’re in need of a custom designed cake, we typically need 5 days notice – but bear in mind this is subject to availability in our schedule. Often people call weeks (or even months!) ahead of time to book cakes, so it may be that your desired date is already full. Please give us a call at 617-926-2747 to check availability.
Do you do wedding cake tastings?
We do – in a unique way. While we are still converting our store to accommodate sit-down tastings, we are offering individual sized cake samples for you to try at home. For a $30 non-refundable fee, our pastry chef will prepare up to three mini cakes.
What is marzipan anyway?
For custom cake designs, we use marzipan instead of fondant to cover cakes, create shapes, and model 3D figures. While marzipan is not as ultra-smooth or ultra-white as fondant, we find our customers prefer its sweet, nutty flavor.
Since marzipan is made from almonds, we definitely do not recommend serving it to someone with a nut allergy, so please make sure your party guests are aware!
How can I transport my cake safely?
“I just wanted to say thank you for some awesome Danish cake. I’m a Dane but have been living in Boston for more than 4 years now and only just learned about your amazing bakery. I have been wanting a hindbærsnitte aka. Poptart for some time now and it was delicious.”
“I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for the wonderful cake for our wedding! Everyone absolutely loved it! My 9 year old cousin said that “wedding cake is better than any other cake.” The decoration, the flowers and the topper were perfect and I can’t thank you and the Danish Pastry House enough for giving us such a great cake! I will gladly recommend the Danish Pastry House to anyone who is looking for a wedding cake or any kind of cake for that matter.”
“I wanted to follow-up with you to tell you that were extremely happy with the cake. The cake itself was delicious — everyone loved it. The artwork was perfect. The dog looked exactly like my daughter’s stuff animal, and she got a real kick out of being able to eat him.
Thank you very much for squeezing us in at the last minute and doing a great job! We will be returning to you in the future.”
