When and how can I order a cake or cookies?

Kathy's Icing on the Cake takes orders by online order request, email, and phone (voice or text messaging). It is advisable to order birthday and most special occasion cakes one week in advance. Wedding cakes require at least one month's advance ordering due to complexities in planning and design along with the schedule coordination for the reception.
