What do you mean by "split filling"?

At Ambrosia we thrive on serving the best quality products. What sets us apart from other bakeries is how we split the layers of cake and use a filling of your choice like buttercream icing or fruit fillings for example.

Some of our cakes like the Fresh Strawberry Cake and many other Specialty Cakes are split twice and has filling between all four layers.

Available fillings

Free fillings - Bavarian Cream, Chocolate Buttercream, Chocolate Doberge, Coconut, Cream Cheese, Lemon, Pineapple, Raspberry, Strawberry and White Buttercream.

Additional Charge fillings - Bavarian/Grand Marnier, Fresh Strawberry, Pecan Praline, Turtle, Turtle Fudge, Wedding Raspberry, Cream Cheese and Pecans, Hummingbird, Raspberry Cream Cheese and Strawberry Cream Cheese. (Filling price is based on the size of the cake.)

Color, Color, Color...

There are so many colors to choose from how do I choose a color and make sure that we are thinking the same color?

There are so many variations to pink, red, yellow and even black! To help assist you in this process we have created the "Ambrosia Color Chart" for you to use as a guide and reference when choosing a color. Go to the Ambrosia Color Chart page and use this as a reference when placing your cake order either with our Call Center or when placing your order online.

What is suggested for those with "Nut Allergies"?

Here in the bakery we have many products that contain nuts. So, if someone that you will be serving any of our desserts too is allergic to nuts there is a poosibility that there may be some cross contamination. However, with that in mind we do have several items that you can use that we have no added nuts too. For example...

  • Chococlate Cake
  • Yellow (Butter) Cake
  • Chocolate Icing
  • Cream Cheese Icing
  • NO ALMOND White Icing (Please be specific to ask the Call Center Operator for this!)

We highly suggest that you Call in (225-763-6489) any cake orders when dealing with Nut Allergies and please be specific with the Operators when placing your order. Thanks!

Why do "Sculpted" and "Cut-Out"cakes only come with buttercream for a filling?

When sculpting or cutting out a cake it would be very difficult to keep a fruit type of filling from coming out the sides of sculpted cake. Therefore, by using only buttercream as a filling it allows us to create different types and sizes of sculpts and allow the cake to keep its shape without falling.

No we don’t however; we do accept Visa, MasterCard & American Express.
