Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
All of my treats are baked and prepared in a licensed commercial kitchen facility called La Dorita Cooks located in Sharpsburg, PA and in my home in Squirrel Hill. I hope to eventually grow into my own brick and mortar space, but until that dream becomes a reality, I will continue doing pop up events and serve you directly through custom orders!
Do you offer any gluten-free, vegan, or other allergen-friendly treats?
My menu currently does not include any treats that are gluten-free, vegan, or 100% allergen-friendly. All baked goods are prepared in a kitchen that contains nut products, so we cannot guarantee against cross-contamination especially for severe nut allergies.
Is there a minimum for orders?
- The minimum for custom cookies is one dozen (12)
- The minimum for edible print cookies is a half dozen (6)
- There is currently no minimum for portrait cookies
- The minimum for standard size cupcakes is a half dozen (6)
- The minimum for tiny cupcakes and mini cupcakes is one dozen (12)
- Each flavor per treat requires a minimum of a dozen; assortments of less than a dozen per flavor will incur additional charges
How much are your custom cookies?
Custom cookies vary highly in price depending on their size and complexity. Standard size cookies, which are about 3"-4", average around $2.75 each but can be lower or higher depending on their complexity.
Our custom portrait cookies and caricature cookies can take anywhere from 3-5 hours per design, so they start with an initial design fee of $25 plus the price of the cookie which start at $4 each and increase depending on their size and complexity.
We also offer mini cookies, extra large cookies, edible print cookies, and more. Contact us directly for a custom quote!
How much lead time do you need for custom orders?
No less than two weeks notice is now required. Shorter notice requests - less than two weeks and no later than a minimum of 3 days before your event - can sometimes be accommodated at a 25% rush charge. Your best bet is to check in as early as possible if your event date is available.
Where do I pick up my order?
Pick ups can be arranged in Squirrel Hill and details are provided to customers upon order completion.
How does delivery work for orders?
Deliveries are free for orders totaling a minimum of $30 and within Squirrel Hill. For all other areas and orders, delivery fees start at $6 + $0.25/mile roundtrip. Deliveries are subject to schedule availability and can only take place within the hours of 7am-7pm.
Do you ship your cupcakes?
Presently, we only ship our cookies nationwide. Cupcakes are only available for local pickup or delivery.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes! Cookies can be shipped internationally, but shipping costs will need to be determined on a per order basis. Contact us directly to inquire!
Do you do custom cakes?
Cakes are not our forte at the moment, but we do make occasional exceptions for projects that we're confident enough to execute to both our satisfaction. If we're unable to do your custom cake order, we have friends who are beyond capable in the cake world and would happily refer you to them with full confidence!
