Who doesn’t love cake? Seriously. If that’s you. Get outta here.
We’ve all had our share of great cakes, but if you want to spice things up a little, cake of the month clubs are a fun idea.
The name really says it all. This type of club provides you with a cake each month. The companies that do this differ considerably from one another. Some just offer a single type of cake, perhaps varying the flavors from month-to-month. Others may have a larger variety or may provide other interesting features.
By taking a look through this list of cake of the month clubs, you can see which one you’re going to try first. Let’s be honest – you’ll go through the list and try them all at some point LOL.
The best one in my opinion is the Amazing Clubs Cake of the Month Club. They actually have cake tasters to sample the selections they send out each month, so you can be sure you’re going to get something good with every shipment. Customer reviews are in, and they’re saying things like the cakes were bigger than expected, and that the cakes tasted fresh.
You can’t beat reviews like that!
PS. If you have time, you probably want to check out our baking subscription boxes too, because you can get ingredients sent to you each month to bake some kind of interesting treat.
PPS. The much loved cousin of cakes, cupcakes, also have their own list of cupcake of the month clubs.
Cake Of The Month Clubs
Amazing Clubs Cake of the Month Club
Amazing Clubs is exceptional at combining products from many sources. Their Cake of the Month Club is no exception to the pattern. With it, the company sends out oven-fresh cakes. These rely on natural ingredients and come from bakeries throughout the United States.
This time, the monthly box serves between 8 to 10 people. A newsletter called A Piece of Heaven is also included. This provides details about the featured cake, along with information about cakes in general. There is a previous selections page that can give you some idea of the cakes that are sent out.
The subscription is considerably less expensive than the previous example, costing just $37.95 per month for most subscription lengths. This may decrease to $36.95 or $35.95 in some situations.
Goldbelly Monthly Cake Subscription
The Goldbelly Monthly Cake Subscription is ideal if you’re looking for variety. The club ships out cakes from the top bakeries around the nation. They also offer considerable variety in the types of cake that you receive. The selection can include red velvet, cheesecake, layered caramel, crispy cake, and much more.
The program costs $75 per month with free shipping. You need to commit to at least 3 months from the beginning. The price doesn’t change based on your subscription, so pick the length that is right for you.
Goldbelly offers some examples of the cakes that they have sent out in the past. They also mention that each month’s box will serve between 8 and 12 people. Even so, what you get each month is a surprise (as it should be).
Plus, they have cool names like:
- Mississippi’s Famous Sugaree’s Southern Coconut Cake
- Ovenly’s “Brooklyn Blackout” Cake
- Elle’s Belles Popular Huckleberry Cheesecake
- NYC’s Classic Ferrara Bakery Tiramisu
There are other good clubs on the list which focus on specific styles of cake like a bundt cake, or coffee cake, but when I sign up for a cake club, I want to taste the spectrum of cake out there!
Flying Noodle Cake of the Month Club
Flying Noodle is another site that specializes in subscriptions. Their Cake of the Month Club is a fun version to try. The individual cakes are taste tested before being included in the club. The company also aims to provide a variety of styles, like coffee crumble, blueberry burst, and tiramisu. Once again, you’re receiving 8 to 10 servings of cake each month.
A 3-month version of this subscription costs $37.95 per month, a 6-month is $36.95 per month and a 12-month is $35.95 per month. As always, you’ll need to pay each subscription in full when ordering. There is no month-to-month ordering option for this company.
Daisy Cakes Seasonal Cakes of the Month
Daisy Cakes has an unusual Cake of the Month program. More specifically, the company doesn’t have a program at all. Instead, they simply produce a new cake of the month each month. These are for sale individually on their site.
For example, the October cake is peanut butter and chocolate butter cake for $49.95. The October cake will be a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, while the November one will be a Pumpkin Pound Cake.
Because there is no specific program, you do need to manually order the cakes each month. This isn’t really a bad thing. It gives you the chance to pick and choose which cakes you want. You also get to know the flavor (and cake type) ahead of time.
Superior Nut Company Cake of the Month Club
You mightn’t expect it, but the Superior Nut Company has a 3-month, 6-month, and 9-month Cake of the Month Club. The club provides you with an 8-inch coffee cake each month, which can serve 8 to 12 people.
The company has 9 types of coffee cake. You receive a different flavor each month. This should mean that you get to try out all the flavors on a 9-month subscription.
The subscription is priced at $94.95 for the 3-month version, $192.95 for the 6-month version, and $286.95 for the 9-month version. These all have free shipping, so you’re just paying the listed price.
Pemberton Farms Coffee Cake of the Month
Coffee cake seems to be a popular style, perhaps because it ships well. Pemberton Farms has another coffee cake subscription that you can try. It offers a 3, 6, 9, or 12 month club, for $124.95, $239.95, $349.95, and $469.95, respectively.
Unlike most clubs, there is little information about what you receive. Pemberton Farms states that the cakes are baked with the freshest ingredients, but there are no details about flavors or even the shipment date.
The Stonehouse Bakery Pound Cake of the Month Club
Stonehouse Bakery offers a Pound Cake of the Month Club. These are baked specially each month. The cake flavors are decided in advance. You can see a full list of the flavors on their site. For example, the cake for August will be peach melba, while the cake for May will be lime-glazed. However, their list of flavors and months is just a suggestion. You can choose different flavors if you would like.
The club works especially well as a gift. This is partly because you pre-pay for 3, 6, or 12 months. You’re also able to include a personalized message with the shipments. The club costs $110 for 3 months, $220 for 6 months, and $440 for 12 months.
The Cake Tasting Club Subscription Boxes
The Cake Tasting Club is unusual because they’re not shipping out full cakes. Instead, the club provides boxes that contain portions of baked products. Cakes are an item that features in those boxes.
The Taster Box cost £12.50 that contains 3 portions of freshly baked treats. The Cake Only Box and The Classic Box both cost £16.50 and contain 4 generous portions of cake and 6 portions in four different delicious Cake Club flavors respectively. And lastly, The Sharing Box cost £27.99 that contains 12 portions in four different delicious Cake Club flavors.
The stated prices are for month-to-month ordering. You can also pre-pay for subscriptions. In each case, pre-paying will decrease the monthly price.
Luscious Little Desserts Pound Cake Club
The subscription from Luscious Little Desserts is ideal if you love pound cakes. It provides you with a Southern pound cake every month. The flavor varies between months. There is often a festive and/or seasonal focus.
An unusual feature is the cake sizes. Luscious Little Desserts has 2 options to choose from. A medium cake will serve 8 to 10 people, while a large cake serves 16 to 20.
The price depends on the cake size and length of subscription. For the 3-month version, you’re paying $125 for the medium cake and $171 for the large cake. This goes up to $468 for a 12-month medium cake subscription and $664 for a 12-month large cake version.
Tipple Tails Fruit Cake Club Subscription
Tipple Tales doesn’t offer freshly baked cakes like most other companies on this list. They have a Monthly Fruit Cake Subscription instead. This lasts for 4 months and sends out a fruitcake each month.
The subscription duration is unusual, but it has a purpose. The Tipple Tales brand sells 4 different fruitcakes. Their subscription club acts as an easy way to send these cakes out to friends or family.
You’re simply paying £14.50 either weekly, every 2 weeks, every 3 weeks, monthly, every 2 months, or every 3 months. You can choose what cake to get or you can just let them surprise you. The regular subscription sends out a cake tin with the first month, then just a cake in subsequent months (which should fit in that initial tin). Alternatively, you can pay a little more and get a new tin each month as well.
Red Shoe Cakes Cake of the Month Club
The products from Red Shoe Cakes are fun for alcohol lovers. The company provides ‘caketails’, which are cakes that have alcohol in the batter and basted onto the cake. You can also choose the Pink Slippers variation, which focuses on great cake flavors that do not include any alcohol.
Currently, Red Shoe Cakes is offering a 4-month subscription plan where you can opt for Red Shoe Caketail for $180, Pink Slipper (non-alcoholic) for $140 or you can mix it up for $160 – these prices are for pick up in Greater Atlanta area. For an extra $5 monthly, you can make the cakes vegan, non-dairy, or eggless.
One limitation is shipping. You need to pick up the cakes in Long Beach or pay an extra $25 per month to have your subscription shipped to you. Even then, the company only ships within a 20-mile radius.
Zingerman’s Coffee Cake Club
The Coffee Cake Club from Zingerman’s is an interesting choice if you don’t want too much cake. The included cakes are smaller than other options, containing just 5 to 7 servings each. Your subscription also comes in a gift box, making it a simple present for family or friends.
The club follows a familiar style, with a 3, 6, and 12 month version. Those cost $145, $260, and $500, respectively. Zingerman’s follows a set flavor pattern for their subscriptions. Regardless of when you sign up, your first box will contain a Sour Cream Coffee Cake. Your second will have a Gingerbread Coffee Cake. You can see the full list of cakes on their site.
Janet’s Cakes And Catering Cake of the Month Club
While coffee cakes and bundt cakes are common among subscription programs, Janet’s Cakes and Catering takes a different approach. Their subscription provides you with a 6-inch round layer cake each month (2 layers).
The catch is that this club is pick up only. This means that it is only a good option for people who live in Bloomington, Illinois, where the store is located.
If you do live locally, you can order a 3-month subscription for $65, a 6-month subscription for $115 or a 12-month subscription for $210. An unusual aspect is that you can choose the months for the 3-month and 6-month versions. The months you select might not even be consecutive.
Mallon’s Sticky Buns Crumb Cake of the Month Club
Mallon’s Sticky Buns offers a Crumb Cake of the Month Club, which sounds like it should be amazing. The club ships out either a 12-piece or a 24-piece crumb cake for a 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription.
Unfortunately, that’s all the information the site provides. There are no details about the flavors or the date of shipment. Pricing information is missing too. You have to call up the company if you want to learn more or if you plan to sign up.
If you subscribe, for a 3-layer 6-inch cake, it’ll only cost you $64.00 every month until you cancel instead of $79 so that’s a $15 saving.
Meg Rivers Bakers of Happiness Cake Club
Meg Rivers Bakers of Happiness was established 30 years ago by Meg Rivers and has since been providing delicious and wholesome cakes. This family business is now one of the select numbers of Certified B Corporations since 2021.
Their Cake Club has been in existence for over 15 years now. The subscription will get you a fresh cake of the month delivered to your door every month for a minimum of 3 consecutive months. Unfortunately, they only ship within UK mainland addresses.
They have the Cake Club Recurring which costs £27.00 per month (minimum of 3 months) and the Cake Club Pre-Pay for £160.00 for 6 months and £297.00 for 12 months (cannot be canceled or refunded).
Sugared & Spiced The Office Monthly Cake Club
Sugared & Spiced Baked Goods started in 2012 baking cookies that quickly gained attention, especially their peanut butter chocolate chip and bacon cookie. Quickly thereafter they’re making cakes, scones, and all kinds of baked goods as well.
Their Cake Club was first launched in 2015 and with its success, they continue on offering this service for $979 per year, called The Office Monthly Cake Club. Subscribers will get an 8″ Classic cake, good for 12 to 16 people, in the flavor of their own choosing from their monthly or seasonal menu.
You can even opt to personalize the cakes at no extra charge. The cakes will be delivered either on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday on the week that you chose to receive them. You can opt to pick them up or have them delivered for an extra $180 for the 12 deliveries.
Ovenly Cake of the Month Club
Ovenly is an award-winning retail and wholesale bakery run by talented people of diverse skills and backgrounds, located in New York City. They are proudly founded and led by women – Agatha Kulaga and Erin Patinkin.
Their best sellers include the Salted Chocolate Chip Cookie which is also vegan, the Salted Peanut Butter Cookie which is gluten-free, and their Brooklyn Blackout Cake.
Ovenly’s Cake of the Month costs $85.99 per month – basically the same price if you’re going to make a one-time purchase. The difference though becoming a member is that you get to enjoy a 15% off on online cookie orders including local pre-orders. And of course, your order is placed automatically each month so worry not during peak seasons because you’re first in line.
For October, subscribers will receive pumpkin spice cake layers filled with gooey chocolate stout caramel and topped with stout caramel buttercream – this is one of their limited edition seasonal cakes.
Camerino Cake Club
Camerino is a local bakery, cakery, and coffee shop in Dublin. They serve quality cakes, cookies, squares, coffee, leaf tea, sandwiches, salads, and soups. They also offer catering services for office launches and celebrations.
They have been awarded Best in Ireland by McKenna’s Guides/Bridgestone Award for 10 consecutive years now since 2012. Their bakery was even shortlisted for the Irish Times’ Best Shops in Ireland.
Their Cake Club costs €50.00 monthly and offers a seasonal selection of Camerino Bakery treats in beautifully handcrafted boxes. Each box contains 12 pieces, two of each six treats. The selection will be based on seasonality and holidays and will contain a collaboration with fellow Irish food producers. You can opt to try it for just one month, or go for the 3, 6, or 12-month subscription.
Nanny Nona’s Monthly Cake Club
Nanny Nona’s provides all sorts of cakes from the classic ones to seasonal cakes – they have them freshly baked for you. They even have special occasion cakes which are made-to-order drip cakes and layer cakes. These are made according to your specifications regarding the number of layers, size of the cake, flavors, the color of the frosting, and the type of cake.
Their Monthly Cake Club Subscription will get you different cakes every month for the duration of your subscription (3, 6, 9, or 12 months). You can choose between The Loaves and Trays subscription for £14.90 a month or £14.00 when you buy in advance – you’ll get a different monthly loaf cake, tray bake, or slab. Or go for The Tea Time Cakes subscription which costs £22.90 a month or £22.00 when you buy in advance – for this one, you’ll get a different monthly large round cake.
The Black Cake Company Cake Club
The Black Cake Company by Angela Price started in 1987 as a mail-order cake company that sells Black Cakes. Today, their cake offerings have grown to include Rum Cakes, Dundee cakes, German Chocolate cakes, and Coconut Bread.
Their Black Cake can be purchased in 1.5 lb, 2 lb, and 3 lb versions. They also have the Black Cake Loaves, Black Cake Miniatures, Heart Shape Black Cake Miniatures, and Black Sheet Cake.
They offer 4 different subscription programs including the Rum Cake Lover which cost $17.50 per month, the Black Cake Lover for $21 per month, the Holiday Program for $32.50 per month, and the TBCC Monthly Program for $46.50. All four subscriptions are valid for 12 months.
They also offer personalized gifts and customizations for event favors.
Zana Cakes Cake of the Month Club
Zana Cakes, owned and operated by Zana Billue was established in 1998 in the Philadelphia, PA area. Zana’s passion for baking is very evident in the cakes that she’s been providing since their inception up until now.
Her cakes are available in 3 sizes – large, which can serve 10 to 12 people, small, which can serve 4 to 5 people, and individual, which is good for a single serving. The freshness of the cakes can be maintained for up to 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.
The Cake of the Month Club is offered in 3- and 6-month subscriptions available both for large and small cakes. You can choose which flavor, in particular, you want to receive for each month upon checkout. Each cake will be shipped out on the first week of each month.
Pound Cake Heaven Cake of the Month Club
Pound Cake Heaven is a family-owned and operated bakery that specializes in birthday cakes, wedding cakes, and themed cakes. They make everything from scratch, in small batches by hand, and without using preservatives. Aside from pound cakes, they also make homemade cookies and deep dish pies.
Their Cake of the Month Club is available in 6 months and 12 months packages for $180 and $360 respectively. Each month you’ll be getting one full-sized pound cake the flavor of which depends on the scheduled flavor. Shipping is available if needed but for an additional $45 per cake delivery.
Members will also get an advance copy of all the flavors for the year and a 10% discount on all in-store retail products (excluding custom cakes). For subscribers of the 12-month package, a free birthday cake (either a pound cake or an 8″ layered cake) will be sent your way as well.
Ridiculously Rich Cake Subscription
Ridiculously Rich is founded by Alana Spencer who’s been making delicious tray-baked cakes since 2010. Fast forward to today, their innovative fully branded Self-Serve Retail Units in convenience stores and petrol forecourts are very in-demand – proving that they’re becoming a leading player in the cake market.
Their cake monthly subscription costs £12.99 per month which will get you their seasonally selected baked goodies. This means that you are the first to taste their new recipes and savor their cutting-edge cake innovations. The box will contain 6 slices of ridiculously rich cake goodies wrapped in a ridiculously rich box.
This is a rolling subscription that you can easily cancel at any time.
Black Box Cake Club Membership
Black Box Cake actually came into existence because of the pandemic but the people behind it are the same people behind Peboryon whose reputation for great cake started in 2016. Peboryon eventually appeared in many international shows and even had the privilege to bake for actual royalty, cake royalty Mel & Sue, and a famous magician in New York.
Black Box Cake is currently offering a Cake Club which is available in 3, 6, or 12-month subscriptions with a price starting at £61. You can actually save 15% by becoming a member. And unlike other cake subscriptions, with this one, you can actually decide however you want to redeem the boxes – say you want it all in one month, that is actually allowed.
And since they are committed to not artificially prolonging the shelf life of their cakes, they restrict their deliveries within the UK.
The subscription from The Gildergreen is fascinating in a few ways. First, you’re not getting a full cake each month. Instead, you get a box with 4 pieces of baking, which can include cakes, cookies, brownies, and bars. There are also 2 teabags that should complement the baking.
The approach gives you multiple flavors and styles to try each month. That’s much better than receiving a large cake and then finding that you don’t like it. Also, this is a gluten free subscription, which is rare among cake of the month clubs.
You pay £15 for a single box, while a 3-month subscription costs £45. A 6-month subscription is £81, which drops the box price to £13.50. Or, you can sign up for a full year. That version costs £153 and comes in at £12.75 per box.
Shipping is free, but The Gildergreen only ships to UK addresses.
Elle Dee Cakes
The Cake of the Month Club from Elle Dee Cakes stands out because the cakes actually look amazing. They’re tall and beautifully decorated – much like something you’d buy from a cake shop for a special occasion.
Even more impressively, you’re not required to pickup these cakes. They’re actually delivered, although only if you’re in the Greater Toronto Area.
You can sign up for a 6-month or 12-month version of the club. Each ships a different impressive cake each month. While no details about flavors are provided, it’s likely that these cakes all taste fantastic. How could they not, when the company puts so much effort into them?
Love By The Slice
Love By The Slice’s Cake of the Month Club features a different pound cake each month of your membership. You can order for 6 or 12 months and pay either on a month-to-month basis or all at once.
There are limited details about what you can expect, as the site doesn’t provide any information about flavors. Even the pricing is slightly confusing – as both the 6-month and 12-month memberships appear to cost $400. Still, you can easily contact the company directly and find out the relevant details before making an order.
Cake Pops From Maggie & Molly’s Bakery
This Cake Pop of the Month Club is different from every other entry. No surprises there – as the club does actually deliver cake pops, rather than full cakes.
Cake pops have a familiar cake-like filling. They’re then coated and decorated, as you can see in the image. The little cake pops are a delicious alternative to cakes, especially as each is a single serving.
The subscription sends out a dozen cake pops per month – in 4 different flavors. A 4-month membership costs $250, a 6-month version costs $350 instead, and a 12-month membership comes in at $500.
The club is a fun option if an entire cake at a time is a bit much.
Luscious Layers Cake Company
Now we come to the Luscious Layers Cake Company. They create some seriously impressive cakes, often relying on icing drips, plus plenty of exciting garnishes. There are some unusual flavors too, including a Maple Streusel Pumpkin Cake and a Raspberry Champagne Cake.
There are two versions of the subscription. The first provides 6-inch cakes and costs $575 for a year. The other focuses on 8-inch cakes instead and costs $695. While there are no shorter memberships, you can use Afterpay to pay the subscription in installments rather than all at once.
Oddly, Luscious Layers doesn’t provide any details about how you get the cakes. Still… the complexity of the cakes suggests that you’ll need to pick them up from the company’s store in Dixon, Illinois.
Cookie Cake Of The Month Club
Not surprisingly, the cakes from The Cookie Cake Co. are a little different. They do truly rely on cookies, which provides a different balance of flavor and texture than in any other type of cake.
The club provides a full sized cookie cake on the first Friday of each month. The cakes are always impressive and are large enough to feed 10 people. The price varies from $150 to $500, depending on whether you order for 3, 6, or 12 months.
Buttermilk Bakery & Pie Shop
The Buttermilk Bake & Pie Shop includes some interesting cakes as part of their Cake of the Month Club. They’re all a touch more extravagant and exciting than normal, making them an amazing treat.
The subscription costs $480 and provides a different seasonal cake each month. However, the Buttermilk Bake & Pie Shop is a fairly small company. As such, you need to pick up the cakes yourself each month, from their farm in Loveland, Colorado.
The location means that these cakes are only viable if you live in the right area. That’s a shame, but there is something extra special about getting cakes directly from the people who made them for you.
Jarva Cakes Lava Cake Club
Finally, there’s the Jarva Cakes Lava Cake Club, which is a little unusual. As the name suggests, this subscription ships out lava cakes, rather than traditional cakes.
You get 4 single serving lava cakes in a box each month. Some of the flavors that might be included are Original Sea Salt Caramel, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, Birthday Cake, and Original Mint Chocolate. The cakes even have a small wooden spoon on top, in case you want to eat them on the go.
It’s a reasonably priced subscription too, costing $69.95 for 3 months or $119.94 for 6 months. That’s decent given you’re getting 4 different cakes each month.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is There A Vegan Cake Of The Month Club?
Despite the growing number of vegans, there aren’t any exclusive vegan cake clubs. Your best choice is Not Pie, which has a vegan cupcake subscription box. While cupcakes aren’t quite the same as full cakes, they do have many of the same features and are an excellent substitute.
You could also order vegan cakes individually and have them shipped to you. A surprising number of bakeries have this option. Some aim to help with other dietary needs too, such as cakes that are both gluten free and vegan friendly.
Which Clubs Are In The UK?
Most of the clubs on this list are American and only ship to addresses in the United States. However, there are a few UK options as well. One is Meg Rivers Bakers of Happiness. This subscription costs £27 per month and provides full sized delicious cakes.
There’s also Nanny Nona’s. This company has two subscription options. The first ships out loaf and tray cakes for £14.90 per month. The other focuses on large round cakes and costs £22.90 per month. Both versions are slightly cheaper if you pay in advance.
We’ve featured a few other UK clubs on this list as well, including The Cake Tasting Club, Ridiculously Rich, and The Gildergreen. These all send out pieces of cakes rather than full sized ones. There’s also Tipple Tails, which offers a fruit cake of the month club.
Are There Any Gluten Free Cake Subscriptions?
Some clubs on this list offer gluten free products periodically time, but most don’t have a full gluten free subscription. The Gildergreen is an exception. This company ships out baking boxes each month that contain a combination of cookies, brownies, bars, and pieces of cake.
You get 4 pieces of baking each month and 2 packets of tea. The subscription is a great way to try new flavors and styles of gluten free baking.
There’s one big catch though – this is a UK company. Customers in the UK can get boxes shipped out to them for £15 per month, with no extra shipping fee. Those of us in the United States are out of luck.
Is There A Cake Mix Club?
Cake mixes are normally seen as fast, easy, cheap, and not that great, while cake clubs tend to focus on quality. So, you won’t see any true cake mix clubs. You could get around this by ordering cake mixes via Amazon’s subscription program, but this means you’re just getting the same selection of cake mixes each month.
Baking subscriptions are a better alternative. Most of these provide pre-packaged ingredients and instructions, allowing you to make delicious desserts at home with no stress. The subscriptions often mix up the desserts, so you may get cake one month, cupcakes the next, then brownies.
Thank you. Fantastic website
