Patty Bakes is a boutique cake and dessert studio located in the heart of the Outer Banks in Duck, North Carolina. Our cakes and decorations are made from scratch, and we are passionate about creating beautiful cakes that taste absolutely delicious. In addition to our handmade cakes, we also offer custom dessert bars for couples who want an alternative to the traditional wedding cake.
3-9 months is the ideal time to start working together. I have worked with far less lead time, so feel free to inquire!
Along with some of our favorite seasonal pairings, we also offer a general list of cakes and fillings to choose from. Popular flavors include:
Chocolate & Sea Salted Caramel
Almond, Lemon Curd & Fresh Blueberries
Red Velvet & Cinnamon Cream Cheese
Banana, Espresso, & Nutella
White Chocolate, Raspberry & Vanilla
As our menu is always changing, please inquire for our current cake + dessert bar menus.
The size of the cake, number of tiers, intricacy of design and pricing of flavors all play a part in the pricing of your cake. Our cakes typically range from $8-12 per serving. Our standard cake designs begin at $8 per serving. Our custom buttercream cakes start at $10 per serving and our fondant cakes start at $12 per serving. Dessert bar pricing begins at $3 per piece.
Some minimums apply during my busier months.
We will prepare up to three flavor combinations for you to try during your appointment. At your tasting, you'll have an opportunity to sample the cake flavors you've selected ahead of time, and decide on your favorites. Then we'll discuss more about what you are planning and find inspiration for the cake design. Feel free to bring along images or anything else that may inspire you. We hold all tastings at Front Porch Cafe in Nags Head, North Carolina (MP 10.5).
Consultations are by appointment only and are complimentary with order minimums of $750. For smaller orders, tastings are $50.
