Additional guests can be added at $5 each, a max of 4 people total will be allowed in tastings. We require a 48 hour notice for rescheduling. Tasting appointments last about an hour and are scheduled every hour on: Thursday (11am – 5pm) Friday (11am – 5pm) Saturday (10am – 3pm) As a courtesy to our customers, we may ask you to reschedule if you are more than 15 minutes late.

Learn More Frequently Asked Questions How far in advance should I order my cake? A lot of work goes into our custom wedding cakes. We recommend scheduling a cake tasting 3-6 months prior to your wedding date. How much are your wedding cakes? Pricing for tiered cakes start at $5.50 per person, not including tax, specialty decor, or delivery. Base pricing includes a selection of buttercream design and standard flavors. Fondant designs begin at $6.40 per serving. Vegan or Gluten free cakes (not tiered) star at $8.25 per serving. What should I expect at my cake tasting? Cake tastings typically last an hour or less. Please come prepared to discuss design ideas at your tasting. We have photos of cakes we have made for previous clients, but would love to see any photos, your Pinterest, swatches of colors, floral, etc. for your cake inspiration. Cake and filling options are plated separate so that you can mix and match your choices together to make your own custom cake flavor. Do you deliver? Yes we deliver wedding cakes within the city and to most of the outlying suburbs. Deliver cost depends on distance. Please contact us for a delivery range and cost quote. We do not ship at this time. How many servings should I order? If your cake is plated and served at the table we recommend ordering enough cake for all guests. If you have other sweets or are serving the cake on a station, 75-80% is a good number to aim for. Consider whether or not you’d like to also save your top tier for your anniversary. Do you have a minimum order? Because we create cakes for all occasions, we don’t have a minimum order for weddings. We’d be happy to help you pick the size of cake most appropriate for your wedding size. If you are on a budget, we can provide smaller cutting cakes and sheet cakes as well. How do I pay for my cake? We accept debit, credit, checks (only for weddings) and cash. An initial deposit of 50% is required to confirm all wedding orders. The balance on all cakes is due 2 weeks prior to the wedding date. Do you rent cake stands/provide toppers? We do not rent cake stands, but if you need assistance, we would be happy to recommend a few of our favorite rental companies. We can always create a custom fondant topper (for an additional cost), or Etsy is a great resource for custom toppers (paper, wood, glass, etc).
