The Ohio State University Student Care Packages – $25.00

We deliver care packages to OSU Campus
The Ohio State University is a prestigious school and students from all around the world attend the university. No matter if a student is ten minutes or ten thousand miles away from home, every child needs a little special surprise from Mom and Dad.
At Fate Cakes we receive multiple calls a day asking to deliver cupcakes and cake pops on OSU campus; therefore, our delivery team know all campus streets like the back of our hands. We’re driving and interacting with students multiple times a day during the school hours and we get to see their big smiles of pure surprise when they receive a special care package from a loved one.
Our cupcakes and cake pops are the most thoughtful gift to send that special student and child for a birthday, finals week pick me up, or just to say “We Love and Miss You”. All cupcakes on our divine menu are priced at $25.00/dozen and our cake pops are even more affordable at $20.00/dozen. We even keep our delivery prices low and charge a standard delivery fee of $10.00 instead of charging you by the mile.
We know how much the little things matter to our children and a simple sweet care package and remind them how much they are missed and loved back home.
Check out our cupcake menu and cake pop menu today. We keep it easy for you to either order online from our Order Form and Shopping Cart or you can simply give us a call (614.219.9429) and we’ll go over all the details with you on the phone!

Make Vanilla Extract From Scratch With Two Ingredients

Imagine you’re standing in your local grocery store’s baking isle. You’ve brought with you a short list of ingredients you’ll need to to bake that famous pie recipe and as you’re browsing the shelves you notice how expensive vanilla extract has risen within the recent years. You think to yourself ‘There has to be a cheaper and easier substitute!”
If you find yourself purchasing vanilla extract every other time you’re at the store, we have a solution to what can be an alternative to that annoying expense. The best part is it’s only two ingredients, which will cost you less in the long run. In order to start this simple recipe, first you will need the purchase the following ingredients:
• (1) 1.5 Liter bottle of cheap vodka (The cheaper the better :D)
• 25 Madagascar Vanilla Beans (these can be bought online in bulk)
First, slice your vanilla beans down the middle using a knife. Next place all the vanilla beans within the container of vodka and seal tightly. (Use a piece of plastic wrap between the lid and bottle for a tighter seal). That’s it! Store in a dark and cool environment – like your cupboard – and make sure to shake the bottle at least 3 times a week to ensure for full distribution of vanilla.
Your extract should be ready to use within 8 weeks. Once you start using this homemade ingredient, simply replace the amount you use with fresh vodka, shake and continue to store in the same environment. The vanilla beans will stay potent and continue to provide your with the best tasting vanilla for months!
Let’s do the simple math on the money you’ll SAVE:

If 8oz of generic (non Madagascar) extract costs you approximately $2.00 in the local grocery market, some bakers can go through this amount within one month (or less). So, let’s say you do use this amount within one month time, that concludes you spend approximately $24.00 on vanilla extract a year alone!
On sale, you’ll be able to purchase a 1.5 liter of cheap vodka for approximately $8.00 and depending on how many and the type of vanilla beans you purchase online, each bean will be approximately $.50. This would bring your total expense to be $20.00. Now this doesn’t seem like a big price difference at first, but because the vanilla beans will continue to provide potency, over time you are will continue to save money!

Cake 101 – What is fondant?

Fate Cakes will cater to your next baby showerAt Fate Cakes the number one question we get asked is “What is fondant?”
Starting Fall of 2013 we are excited to announce we will be expanding our dessert menu and are adding custom cakes to our catering services. While we will absolutely create a delectable cake using our mouthwatering buttercream, we will also be introducing fondant. While fondant is growing in popularity, we couldn’t help but jump on the bandwagon and offer this topping option to our cake menu.
Fondant can make any cake have a more polished and smooth look. A cake decorated with fondant can also make that party extra special by molding and designing a cake using a specific theme. While all cakes are works of art at Fate Cakes, fondant can be an easier medium to use while achieving that memorable cake and most important, party!
It’s important to remember that fondant and buttercream are entirely different in texture and taste. While they both use similar ingredients, fondant has a more paste like consistency as opposed to a creamy buttercream. There are many different variations of fondant – mainly Buttercream Fondant and Marshmallow Fondant – both have a more solid consistencay compared to buttercream. It’s also important to note that the main ingredient in fondant is powdered sugar which makes the level of sweetness much higher when compared to buttercream.
No matter the occasion, Fate Cakes will cater a buttercream or fondant cake to your next Baby Shower, Bridal Shower, Birthday and we also offer anniversary (mini) cakes for your cupcake tiers for weddings or other large events.
