Student Care Packages and Birthdays

Columbus, Ohio

At Fate Cakes, we make daily deliveries to The Ohio State University campus. Parents and family members from all over the country (and some international) contact us every day to surprise their children with a little special gift as a loving sentimental gift.

We will deliver your birthday or care packages to your student’s apartment, residential house, and especially their dorm.

OSU Delivery Information

We offer delivery of all our lil’ treats to any location within The Ohio State University campus district – and other areas in Central Ohio. Please Click Here to read more about our delivery terms and conditions; as well as, additional locations within Columbus, Ohio in which we will deliver.

Delivery – Dormitory

Delivery to a residence hall is super simple. With 24 hour access to the building, Resident Assistants are at the front desk 24/7 and can accept your child’s package at any time during our standard delivery hours. That also allows the student to retrieve the order at their convenience when they’ve found a break in class and studying.

We request the name and signature of all recipients and record names from RA’s who sign for the packages – just in the event there are any questions upon arrival or after delivery. It should also be noted that some dorms don’t have a front desk and their “sister” buildings accept all mail/packages for students from both locations. These instructions and specific mail room addresses should be included in the shipping address. Please read all delivery details and information to learn more about how items are confirmed delivered depending on location.

Delivery – Residence/Home/Apartment

So, your child’s an upperclassman and finally lives off campus. That’s a reason in itself to send a little dessert, but how are packages received if they no longer live in on campus housing?

Most apartments and town homes within a couple of miles of campus have leasing offices located near or on the property. We can hand deliver to any location you feel comfortable either having a signature upon arrival or it being left on site if no recipient if available – please read more about how deliveries are confirmed if no one is available to personally accept the order.

OSU Home Game Day Orders

Addresses within a 5 mile radius of The Ohio State University campus are considered on/off campus. Orders placed for delivery on a home game day will arrive the day before due to restricted and sometime no access to specific roads/buildings/etc.  Please visit OSU’s website for a list of all current home games.

Next Day & Same Day

At Fate Cakes we understand some birthdays and special events can be lost and forgotten during all our busy schedules. Don’t panic, we’re here to help you in any time of need; therefore, we are happy to offer next day delivery on a selection of our desserts. (Note: Because our bakery makes every treat to order, we reserve the right to no longer accept next day deliveries at any time and on any day of the week. Check our calendar of availability during checkout to confirm if delivery is currently available as soon as the following day).

  • Next day orders may be placed online using a shopping cart up until 10:00PM prior to the day of delivery.

Recipient Confirmation

During the order process, Fate Cakes requests the delivery recipient name and address of the recipient, but we will not call before or upon delivery. Please Note: All desserts will be left at the delivery location regardless on if the recipient is present, unless we can not get access into a building. If there is no individual available to sign for the package our team takes photo documentation of where the package is left upon delivery.

We understand some packages are expected to be received directly by the recipient, and by special request, our team can bring the treats back to the bakery until otherwise contacted with further instruction upon delivery, instead of leaving the package at the designated location. Note: All packages brought back to Fate Cakes will be charged an additional delivery fee during the next attempt to reach the recipient. (No pickup options are available at this time).


We’re a bakery opened nearly every day of the year; therefore, we make deliveries all over the Columbus, OH area during any weather conditions. In the event that a recipient is not available upon our confirmation request, we are permitted to leave our desserts outside a residence no matter the weather conditions. As long as our desserts are located within a shaded and cool environment, no harm will come. Please Note: leaving anything sweet outside, during any season, the order can be subject to damage from weather, or can attract bugs and animals – we are not liable for any damages conducted after delivery if the package needs to be left outside.
