No one — we repeat, no one — should celebrate a birthday without cake. And sometimes, that means ordering one online. These birthday cake delivery services offer all the flavors and flair you could wish for, without the fuss of baking it yourself.
Bake Me a Wish
Bake Me a Wish features a stellar selection of cakes, including some that taste just like Nestle Crunch, Baby Ruth, and Butterfinger bars. If the cake's recipient isn't as obsessed with candy as we are, other fun flavors include strawberry funfetti, tres leches, and limoncello. Shipping starts at $15.
Goldbelly ships cakes from some of the most popular bakeries in the U.S. Check out the iconic rainbow cakes from Carlo's; the rich, salty-sweet Brooklyn Blackout Cake from Ovenly; the thick, buttercream-filled Pink Jumbo D'oh!nut Cake from Angel Food Bakery; and Oprah's Favorite Red Velvet Layer Cake from Carousel Cakes. Many vendors offer free shipping (!), and you may even find your favorite listed in the site's Flash Sale section.
Harry & David
Cheesecake Factory fans will be very pleased that Harry & David ships a handful of the restaurant's signature confections. Other standouts from this retailer include a no-frills Chocolate Birthday Cake with a five-star rating and a Rose Cake that's *almost* too pretty to eat. Shipping starts at $15.
Milk Bar's limited menu makes choosing just one cake a little easier. The bakery spent more than two years perfecting its birthday cake, which comes in vanilla, gluten-free vanilla, and chocolate versions. It's the rainbow-flecked dessert you devoured as a kid with a James Beard-approved upgrade. Shipping costs $15.
You can't go wrong with a chewy, chocolatey cookie cake. This birthday version from Mrs. Fields serves 12 people — or makes excellent leftovers. Cookie cake for breakfast, anyone? Shipping starts at $13.
Send a Cake
If cake isn't enough, Send a Cake ships mini cakes in boxes filled with surprises like candy, flowers, photos, or tiny stuffed animals. (Your choice!) If you want wow factor, the Loaded Confetti Cake and Loaded Chocolate Sprinkle Cake bring it. Of course, the box isn't too subtle, either. Shipping costs $15. Orders $85 and up ship free.
Williams Sonoma's eye-catching cakes come from boutique bakeries like The Cake Bake Shop in Carmel, Indiana; We Take the Cake in Fort Lauderdale; Frost Bake Shop in Memphis; and Eli's Cheesecake Co. in Chicago. Buying for an avid baker? Go the DIY route with Flour Shop's Rainbow Explosion Cake Kit or Georgetown Cupcake Cake Mix. Shipping costs reflect Williams Sonoma's rates.
Your Favorite Food Delivery Service
You don't have to splurge on a birthday cake from a bakery across the country to make someone's day. Use Postmates or DoorDash to order from local restaurants or online grocery services like Shipt to shop supermarkets in your area, often with same-day delivery. Last-minute planners, rejoice.
