Frequently asked questions and answers

COMMON FAQs

What is fondant?

Fondant is a sugar-based dough for cakes that is a substitute for traditional icing. We make our own fondant in the bakery, which has a soft, candy-like texture/taste unlike the overly sweet taste that is hard to eat. Fondant is useful for certain designs that cannot be neatly drawn. It is also useful for outdoor events where butter cream would melt.

Is Fondant Edible?

Fondant is a sugar dough that is edible. At OUAC, we keep the layer of fondant on our cakes very thin so that it complements the flavor of our cake.

Why are customized cakes expensive than the regular, bakery-bought cream Cakes?

We totally agree that prices may differ completely and some other commercial bakeries will definitely make something similar at a different price but we’re serving a market niche like you people who wants excellent taste, high quality ingredients, very fine n finished look and an overall hygienic quality ensured. The taste n presentation you’ll get will be worth paying for.
