Personal Service & Handcrafted Quality
When you are ready to order your Patty-Cakes, Linda or Karen will come to your home to lovingly take your child's impressions or your pet's paw prints and collect any other items you would like as part of your keepsake.
Once our American artisans receive your Patty-Cakes keepsake, it is handcrafted in a 35-step process that provides amazing detail. Because we do this with such care, plan on having your Patty-Cakes in about 12 weeks. If you're planning on giving Patty-Cakes for a special holiday or occasion, be sure to allow plenty of time so it is back for that wonderful gift-giving moment.
If there is a possibility that your Patty-Cakes or Patt-Paws won't be finished in time for the birthday, celebration, or holiday, we offer a stylish Certificate of Purchase that you can give to your loved one to let them know it is on its way.
