Nationwide Shipping Questions

Do you ship nationwide?

How far in advance do I have to order to make sure my treats arrive on time?

We ask for 5 days notice from the delivery date selected (you can choose Wednesday-Friday). We ship UPS 2nd Day Air service, COVID-19 and other extenuating circumstances may affect shipment dates. We recommend choosing a delivery date 1-2 days in advance of your event to ensure it arrives on time.

Do you ship to Hawaii or Alaska?

At this time we do not ship to Hawaii or Alaska. 

Do you accept corporate or bulk orders?

Yes! Email for details about corporate orders. We do ask for a minimum of two weeks to place an order.

My order is a gift, will pricing information be included with my order?

Nope! All prices are excluded from our packing slips for this exact reason.

Why is my ordered delayed?

While UPS does everything they can to ensure packages arrive on time to their destinations, depending on holiday, weather and unprecedented shipping volume, especially for perishable goods, delays do happen. Once an outgoing shipment has left our bakery facility, Ovenly can no longer be responsible for any carrier-related delays and we are unable to offer refunds for delays or damaged items caused by shipping delays or mishandling, per our Refund Policy.

I would like to ship a cake that says "Happy Birthday!" Can I add an inscription to a shipping order?

We do not offer cake inscriptions on shipped orders. However, you can specify a gift note before checking out. Your gift note will be on the invoice that is included in the shipping box.
