With the rise of social media sites like Instagram and Pinterest, it has made it easier than ever to find cake ideas that you like, and to find some cakes and bakes that you want to try yourself. But if you are short on time, or just want to have your cake arriving looking professional, for whatever occasion you are celebrating, then placing an online cake order is something that has grown and grown in popularity. In fact, the global cake market size was valued at $42.94 billion last year, and that is expected to grow more and more as the years go on.
Consumers have been increasing their spending on buying occasion specific cakes, so as a result, cake companies across the country have been meeting the demand. You can get cakes shipped from Idaho to Florida, and from California to Maine. But what are the best places to get a cake shipped from? Is it better to look for someone local to deliver to you instead? Here are some online cake ordering sites, to see which is best.
Bake Me a Wish
Based in New York, Bake Me a Wish creates a variety of cakes, cheesecakes, pies, cookies, cupcakes, and brownies. They offer next day nationwide delivery, and even guarantee that your order will arrive on time. So when you’re ordering in for a specific date or occasion, that is a big benefit. They have been delivering cakes across the country for fifteen years now, so they have got the process down, with many positive reviews. Their cakes are made with quality and fresh ingredients, and they are created by their award-winning New York bakeries. So for something special from the Big Apple, then Bake Me a Wish can be a good point of call.
An online cake shop based in Massachusetts, 1-800-Bakery.com have been delivering cakes for over fifteen years. They specialize in a number of different sweet treats from birthday cakes to cake pops, as well as cheesecakes and chocolate truffles. They even have sugar-free options for diabetic customers or those watching their sugar intake. They do a great range of gift deliveries, such as cookie bouquets and other gift packages that are fun and cute. They are really affordable too. The family-run business offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, and they have great reviews on their site, at 4.9 out of 5.
Due to the current health crisis, they have stopped any guaranteed deliveries by particular dates, so just something to remember when ordering. If you’re ordering in for something specific, then make sure that you order ahead in plenty of time.
Milk Bar has been on the dessert scene since 2008, and they are a pretty exciting bakery. They are all about modern trends and fun food, with great tastes and flavorful treats.

Milk Bar offers nationwide shipping as well as on-demand delivery of their goodies in select cities. So if you want to get joy and goodness in a box, then Milk Bar can deliver when you need it, whether you live near or far to them.

Wicked Good Cupcakes
Wicked Good Cupcakes began as a family business and remains a family business to this day. Wicked Good Cupcakes started in their home kitchen ten years ago, and they have a firm commitment to not compromise on quality. A mom and daughter duo who loved to bake and spend time together, they got into the business with very little business knowledge or money. After an appearance on Shark Tank, the business grew and grew and now they run a successful bakery and online cake delivery.
They offer something quite unique with cupcakes in jars for all different occasions. As a result, it means that they can be quite easy to ship from wherever you are based. You can also order birthday boxes and party packs delivered right to your door with the cake jars, as well as all of the other things that you will need for whatever the occasion.
