Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a phone number we can call to place an order?

  • Due to the number of orders we receive we only take orders through email. Email us at yummariesbakery@gmail.com. Should we need to, we can schedule a phone call with you through email; however, 99.9% of our orders are easily made through email. 

Do you make sugar free items?

  • Most of our cheese spreads are sugar free, as well as our cheese biscuits. Our Morning Glory Muffin is a low sugar item, with half sugar/half Splenda.

Do you make gluten free items?

  • Sadly, no. A bakery must have a separate kitchen to safely make gluten free items. We recommend Carolina Cupcakes, as they have a gluten free kitchen. They can be found in Chesapeake, Norfolk, and Virginia Beach.

Do you make vegan items? Do you make dairy/egg free items?

  • Most of our items include butter, eggs, or milk. When in stock, our Sea Glass Candy is vegan friendly. We recommend My Vegan Sweet Tooth in Virginia Beach.

 

Do you make any vegetarian items?

  • Most of our items are vegetarian, the only items with meat would be our cheese with ham biscuits, bacon biscuits, and our bacon cheddar scones.

I have an allergy, what can I eat?

  • Food safety is our number one priority. We make everything from scratch in our shop. While we try to keep everything as separate as possible, cross contamination can still occur. Depending on the severity of your allergy we suggest that you pass on our treats. If an allergy is mild, please ask to speak with a manager or owner (Marie or Kelly), to go through an ingredient list. Safety is our key concern when it comes to allergies. 

 

What payments do you accept?

  • We accept cash, credit/debit cards, and apple pay (inside register during big events).

What is the best way to contact you?

 

What are your hours?

  • Hours change seasonally to go along with town events and holidays. We try to keep our updated hours on our site, as well as, Facebook, and Google. For most up to date hours, Google is our main go to!

Are dogs allowed in the shop?

  • Non-service animals are not permitted in a food preparation area under applicable food safety regulation. Service animals are individually trained to do work or perform task for persons with disabilities. Comfort or emotional support animals are not service animals (ADA). We apologize for any inconvenience.

 

When should I put in an order?

  • The best thing is to contact us as soon as you can to reserve your order. Most orders can be placed up to a day or two before pickup; however, the weeks leading up to major holidays can book up weeks, to months in advance. Shoot us an email to check our availability and place your order.

Do you make wedding cakes or cupcakes?

  • We sure do! We limit our weddings to one a day or one a weekend during busy holiday seasons, so email early to reserve your date. To reserve your date, we must have a 50% non-refundable deposit, or $100 whichever is greater. Sadly, we are unable to make wedding cakes in November or December due to then being our busy season. 

 

Can you write on your cakes?

  • Sadly, no. We do, however, have cake toppers available for purchase that say "Happy Birthday," we also have numbers available, and graduation cap cake toppers. We highly recommend American Laser Arts next door for personalized cake toppers.

 

Do you deliver? 

  • Currently, we do not. We only deliver for large items like tiered wedding cakes. 

 

How long do your baked goods last?

  • See our "How to Keep Guide" with helpful tips of how to get the most enjoyment out of our baked goods. See tab above.

  • We make everything from scratch and without adding preservatives. Most items are designed to be enjoyed within a couple of days of purchase. This can be extended by putting in a refrigerator or freezing an item. Some items that do not need to be refrigerated or frozen, as they naturally last a long time, include sugar cookies, wedding cookies, gingersnaps, lemon lavender shortbread, and candies.

When do you have yeast breads?

  • Typically, we only have yeast breads days leading up to Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We can do these as a special order if time and staff availability allows. 

What can I freeze?

  • Regular cookies (6 packs), biscuits, pound cakes, scones, muffins, sugar cookies, yeast breads, and fruit breads. See our How To Keep Guide

What shouldn't I freeze?

  • We do have customers who have frozen most items, but we have not tried freezing all of our baked goods ourselves. In general cakes and pies do better in the refrigerator for short term storage.
