Quarantine Cake FAQ
What is it?
A quarantine cake is a homemade cake made by yours truly (Blue Owl!) at home. The cakes are all 6 inches in diameter and three tiers filled with buttercream and deliciousness. They are perfect for up to about eight people to enjoy (maximum eight slices). You can pick one of three flavours: lemon butter, vanilla yellow butter, or chocolate. Cakes are also available in vegan options, but no gluten free or sugar free.
Who should get one?
If you are in need of a cheer-up, or if a special calendar date is on the horizon, if you want to celebrate someone you love, brighten someone’s day, or thank an essential worker for all that they’re doing during the pandemic, then this cake fits the bill. All you have to do is tell me what you want and I will take it from there!
How are you staying sanitized?
Blue Owl Treats is following the BCCDC’s guidelines for cleaning, sanitizing, and safety protocols.
Can I customize the cake decoration and design by showing you a photo of a cake I saw on social media?
Short answer: Sorry, but my answer to this is a polite no.
Long answer: I want to be able to use the highest quality ingredients to make the best product, and unfortunately adhering to custom design requests just won’t be possible for these cakes given the time they already take, and the demand for quarantine cakes at this time. I have narrowed own the flavour choices to three: lemon, chocolate, and vanilla. They are all so delicious! Please follow me on @blueowltreats for examples of my designs, or see the photos below. You can trust beautiful artistic liberty from my end! :)
What is the price break-down for the cake?
I try to reflect in the price-point of $65 a cake that will be the absolute best quality product for those ordering cakes from me. A cake takes a ton of patience and care to create and decorate and yet I want it to be an approachable price for every-day celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. It takes me about six hours to make one cake from start to finish plus grocery shopping and delivery (if required). Hopefully that helps you understand the price-point!
