To help do our part in providing our community with fairly paid, living-wage
jobs, Cake Life has committed to a minimum global pay of $15/hour (plus tips
for non-managerial employees). We believe in equal pay for equal work. In

education, training, or experience that goes well beyond the position

landscape, we expect this to begin modestly, but grow with us, ensuring that
employees benefit from Cake Life’s success over time.
