We’re happy to deliver our custom cakes and other desserts within about one hour of the Madison area. If you’d like a Craig’s cake from further away, contact us about pick up options.
We ask that you give us at least one week to hand-bake and decorate your custom cake or other dessert order.
Our grab ‘n go options are always shifting. At our Verona shop, you’ll be able to find these items ready for same-day pick up:
4″ mini cakes in a range of flavors
Frosted and seasonally decorated cupcakes
Cake push-up pops

Our circular cakes range from $15 for a 4” mini to $65+ for a custom 12” round. Our square and rectangular cakes start at $45 for a single-layer ¼ sheet up to $126+ for a double-layered ½ sheet.
Depending on your design and decoration requests, additional costs may be added. Contact us for a specific estimate!
Buttercream frosting is softer and generally tastes better than fondant. In fact, most adults find fondant too sweet — it’s common practice to peel it off before eating the cake underneath.
At Craig’s Cake Shop, we don’t use fondant. All of our cake decorations are made with buttercream frosting so that every bite is delicious, and you won’t have to worry about throwing any fondant away to get to the part that you really want to eat!
You bet we can! Our expert team of bakers and decorators has the skills to bring just about any cake design to life — and we love doing it. Get in touch with us today to see what’s possible.
Craig’s Cake Shop is not an allergen-free environment. Dairy, soy, peanut butter, eggs, gluten, and coconut oil are some of the known allergens we use. Common kitchen equipment and utensils are used in all cake assembly and decorating.
Some decorations including, but not limited to, sugar crystals and jimmies/sprinkles are prepared and packaged using machines that may come into contact with wheat, gluten, eggs, dairy, peanuts, soy, or tree nuts.
Please consider this information when choosing to consume our cakes and other custom desserts. If you have any questions, you can call us at (608) 848-6331 to speak with our manager about your specific allergies.
