WEDDING CAKE FAQ
Wedding Cake Frequently Asked Questions
Can I schedule a cake consultation and tasting?
Absolutely! We will sit down with you and go over all of the details, design, flavors and cost of the cake during your consultation. We will prepare a sample plate of our most popular flavors, please let us know if you are looking for something in particular. We request at least 2 days notice for cake tastings.
What flavors can I chose from?
Here is a list of cake flavors and fillings. Buttercream and ganache can be flavored with just about any nut, liqueur, or fruit flavor as well.
We are happy to accommodate custom flavors and sizes. Each cake tier can be a different design, flavor and filling.
How much do cakes cost?
Our tiered cakes start at $5.50 per serving. Additional costs include specialty flavors, fondant and custom design elements. All of this can be discussed during your tasting and consultation.
Do you offer delivery?
Yes! Delivery and set-up is $55, or $75 for 4 & 5-tier cakes, all within a 7 mile radius of our location. We deliver outside of this radius for $95 with additional $3.00 per mile after the first 7 miles. We will work with you, your venue and your caterer to coordinate the delivery on the day of the event.
Can we pick up our cake to avoid a delivery charge?
We recommend delivery for large tiered wedding cakes. If you choose to pick up your cake, please make sure you have a clean, flat surface for transportation. Vans, sport utility and other vehicles with folding back seats and air conditioning are the best for travel. If you are in a car, the floor is generally safer than the seat for cake transportation. We are not responsible for damages to your cake once it leaves our facility and care.
Should we freeze the top layer for our anniversary?
You can, but we would like to offer you a better option. To help you celebrate your first year of marriage, we will make you a complimentary 6’’ round cake in the flavors of your original wedding cake. Simply call in the order a week before your anniversary, and we’ll have it ready for pickup, FREE OF CHARGE! It’s a much preferred alternative to a freezer burned cake.
How soon do I need to place my order?
You can reserve your date as early as you would like (the sooner the better!) While we are willing to accommodate any schedule, we recommend placing orders 3 months to a year before your special day.
How many servings do I need?
This may depend on how you plan on serving the cake, but we generally suggest a cake with servings close to, or slightly fewer, than your number of guests. We have small take home boxes available for purchase if you’d like to share leftover cake with your guests.
Can you put fresh flowers on our cake?
Of course! We will coordinate with you and your florist. Flowers are usually provided and placed on the cake on the day of the event.
Do you have cake toppers? Cake stands?
We do not carry cake toppers or cake stands, but you can provide your own. The cake stand will need to be at least 2 inches wider than the diameter of your base tier to account for the cake board. (Example, a 12” base cake will be on a 14” cake board). You can also drop off or ship your cake topper to us and we will hold on to it and place it on the cake upon delivery.
Do you require a deposit?
We require a $50 deposit to reserve your date. Two months prior to the event we require a 50% down payment, with the final payment due 3 weeks before the event.
