We work out of a commercial kitchen that is not open to the public. We are committed to providing you with a fresh delicious cake made to order which is why we need 24 hours to create a cake for you. We will deliver your cake free of charge in the greater Austin and surrounding area. Please call us today to discuss your specific needs!
We do wholesale AND retail and we will be happy to make a cake for you for any occasion – no order is too small! Although we do not yet have a retail location we are very happy to service a large number of retail customers via our online store.
At Stregare Cheesecake Company we don’t freeze our cakes but that doesn’t mean you can’t. Let me go into some “cake science” here that will explain the logic behind why we don’t freeze our cakes and what might happen if you do freeze one. When a cake that is dense in moisture such as a cheesecake is frozen in a traditional freezer, ice crystals form in the cake. When you thaw the cake sometimes these crystals can melt in “blobs” and make the cake texture seem soggy. When cakes are mass produced in a factory and frozen, the manufacturer incorporates some amount of starch product into the cheesecake batter to absorb these crystals as the cake thaws. This works to prevent that soggy texture you might get in a cake that was frozen, however, it can compromise the flavor and texture of the finished product. If you have access to a flash, or blast freezer to freeze our cakes that would be the best alternative. Flash freezing the cake prevents the larger ice crystals from forming as they would under traditional freezing conditions.
Unfortunately we do not ship our cakes beyond where we can drive to deliver them (Austin and surrounding area). We do not have access to a flash freezer to freeze our cakes in a way that would not compromise the quality when thawed. All cakes would have to be frozen before shipping to not fall apart.
At this time all deliveries are free (some exceptions may apply for large long distance orders). We do not have a retail facility and there is no way for our customers to pick up their cakes and therefore we are happy to deliver the cakes to you free of charge. If you are working with us on an exceptionally large order for delivery outside of the greater Austin area delivery fees may apply on a case by case basis.
If you are having a party or hosting an event we recommend 3 cheesecake Bites per guest. If you are ordering 150 Bites or more we only charge $1.25 per bite and this gives you the option to add multiple flavors to your order. In orders of 150 to 250 we recommend 3 flavor combinations, although more are available.
Yes we do! We can make any of our cakes without a crust making them gluten free. We can also create our cakes with any of the available sugar substitutes that behave similarly to sugar in baking. Please call us to find out more about this offer.
When we say custom we mean it! Do you have a flavor you are trying to achieve? We will work with you to see if we can make it happen. Are you trying to match a theme for an event? Do you just want a cake that looks cool? We can do all of that. We can make a cake, cupcakes (Personal cakes), or Bites that reflect your unique taste and style. Call us today and talk with Michael, our pastry chef. Michael hasn’t met a challenge he couldn’t win when it comes to flavor.
All our cakes are made fresh to order which means that we don’t have inventory sitting around waiting for someone to come get it. We make a special cake just for you. That’s why we need 24 hours. No, it doesn’t take 24 hours to bake a cheesecake. However, it should chill overnight before serving or slicing. The 24 hour requirement insures that your cake will have the proper time needed to chill completely before we bring it to you ice cold.
Yes we can! We offer cakes in 12-inch, 9-inch, 7-inch and 5-inch rounds or squares that we can stack in any 2 or 3 layer combination of your choice. We can decorate these cakes with sugar sheets (pictures printed with edible ink), air brushing, and/or cream cheese frosting just to name a few options.
Call us today to set up your free tasting (512-563-2744). We will be happy to meet you and your fiancé for a chance to try some flavors and discuss ideas for your wedding. We typically meet at a coffee shop or local winery where the atmosphere is relaxed and casual and we can get to know you and find out what your needs are for your wedding. Take a look at our site and pick 4 to 5 flavors that you would like to try and then give us a call to set up a time to meet that best works for you.
This is a good question and depends on what other desserts you might be serving and what sizes and combinations of cakes you order. Please visit our pricing and services for weddings page for more information on the cake sizes and serving suggestions per size.
Yes! But you do need to take some precautions. Cheesecake needs to be kept cold. If you are planning an outdoor wedding, especially in the warmer months of the year, it’s a good idea to make sure you have refrigeration at your venue where extra cakes can be easily stored. Our recommendation is that you have a smaller display of cheesecakes for your guests and restock this display frequently from refrigerated stock to make sure your cakes stay cold.
No. Because we make all our cakes fresh to order, we will create your cake(s) the night before you need them. Once you have decided on flavors, sizes and number of cakes just let us know and we will create an invoice for your order. We will send you that invoice and you can pay it online with a credit card or PayPal and you’re done! If you change your mind on flavors later or want to add to your order that’s no problem – just let us know a week before your delivery date.
Yes we do deliver right to your venue or anywhere you request the cakes to be taken (i.e. caterers office etc.). Depending on the distance we have to travel there may be a minimum delivery amount to meet. If this amount is not met with the order the rest would be charged as a delivery fee. Contact us today to see if there is a minimum delivery charge for your area (512-563-2744)!
We can bring your order to your venue and set up your dessert table moments before dessert is served so your cakes stay cold and look great at just the right time. There is a flat $75 charge for this additional service of setting up your cakes and baked goods (as opposed to just dropping them off for your catering staff to set up).
We will be happy to deliver your order to your venue anywhere in the Austin area, Round Rock, Georgetown, Bastrop or the Hill Country area. If you have a question about a specific location, please give us a call (512-563-2744).
