WHAT IS YOUR AVAILABILITY & HOW MUCH NOTICE DO YOU NEED?
See my Inquiry page for availability.

Please note that I DO NOT hold dates. Deposits are required to secure your booking.
IT’S LESS THAN 2 WEEKS TO MY EVENT, CAN I STILL ORDER?
I may be able to fit in simpler items such as crinkle cookies, cupcakes, or French Macarons. Feel free to inquire about a cake as well in case I have an opening. Subject to availability. Minimum order quantities or costs will apply for custom orders.
DO YOU HAVE A STORE? WHERE CAN I BUY YOUR BAKED GOODS?
MMC Bakes is a licensed home baking business, and you can order from me directly. I do not have a storefront.
In 2014-2016 my French Macarons, ube cheesecake & crinkle cookies were sold through a Filipino bakery in San Diego. As of 2016 my focus has been mainly custom cakes.
DO YOU SHIP?
No, not at the moment.
WHERE DO I PICKUP MY ORDER? DO YOU DELIVER?
Pickups are mostly done at my home in Chula Vista.
Minimum order for delivery is $200. A delivery fee will apply for locations outside of my Chula Vista delivery area. Subject to availability; I run this business by myself!
WHY ARE YOUR PRICES HIGH?
Custom cakes are incomparable to ready-made cakes. I use premium fondant & quality ingredients. With the amount of time I spend baking, making each filling from scratch, to the hours spent on the details and artistry of the cake, my prices are a bargain!
