Truly Custom Cakery Giveaway: 2.5 lb Bag Truly Custom Crunch or $50 Gift Certificate Towards Cake

truly custom cakery

Sometimes you just fall into some good.  Very good.

I was first introduced to Stacey, owner of Truly Custom Cakery, several years ago.  She was a good friend of a friend.  I remember talking to her about a business that she had recently started- her own cake shop.  She gave me her business card and I came home and pulled up her shop’s blog on my computer.  To put it plainly: I was blown away.  One of my guilty pleasures is to watch those cake design/decorating shows on TLC, mostly Ace of Cakes.  The cakes that I saw on Stacey’s site were easily on par with some of the neatest cakes that I have seen on TV.  They are that beautiful and creative.

Then in April my sister ordered a mini cake for her daughter’s first birthday.  She wanted her daughter on top along with their 2 dogs.  The cake was over-the-top cute- attention to detail and skill were obvious.

So this year when we decided to throw a triple birthday party for myself, Biker Bob AND Lily Bean (all of our birthdays are in September!) it was a no-brainer that we needed a Truly Custom Cakery cake at our party.  I called Stacey and we decided on a size and flavor.  After that I told her that I just wanted something super fun.  I mentioned that we were calling the party “Weaverpalooza”- so she could take that theme and run with it.  Run she did! Check out this cake!!

Tasted GREAT, looked AMAZING, totally impressed our guests. We couldn’t have been happier!

Truly Custom Cakery is also the genius behind a succulent concoction called Truly Custom Crunch.  Truly Custom Crunch is an “irresistible combination of pecans, almonds, and popcorn, coated with caramel toffee and drizzled with rich dark chocolate.”

Need I say more?

It should come as no surprise to you that Truly Custom Cakery was recently named the #1 Philadelphia Cake Shop beating out 21 other competitors on Philly’s Hot List.  They’ve always been my #1 pick and I am so excited that the word is getting out about how amazing their cakes and crunch are.

Their prices also surprised me. Don’t expect to take a 2nd mortgage out just to afford one of these creations.  These cakes are a total triple threat- they look great, they taste even better and the price tag won’t break the bank.

Note: These cakes cannot be shipped.  They are available for local pick-up in Warminster, PA ONLY!

To celebrate their Philly Hot List victory, Truly Custom Cakery wants to give 1 lucky Mama Cheaps reader a 2.5 lb package of Truly Custom Crunch shipped to their door. If a local reader wins, they may choose between the Truly Custom Crunch or a $50 gift certificate towards a cake purchase!

    Mama Cheaps. You aren’t fair. How is a person supposed to choose a favorite out of ALL those GORGEOUS cakes??? IF I had to choose, I would say it’s the cupcake theme cake. It’s so adorable and whimsical…but so are all the others!!! You know what I’m MOST excited about? I live SO close and never knew she was there in Warminster. I am soooooo going to be ordering from her in the future!!! Thanks for this little Gold Mine in my own backyard!

    I have been a fan of Stacey’s almost since she started (not quite though!)!!!! I claim to be her biggest fan but looks like I have competition! My favorite cake of hers is the topsy turvy white and blue cake with plenty of gemstones and “bling”!

    I have “liked” her page as well as the Mama Cheaps page, and I probably have Stacey’s portfolio nearly memorized. :-)

    And her Crunch is the BEST. Totally.
