                                  Frequently Asked Questions


How soon should I place my order? As soon as possible. Some dates book as far as a year out. 

What can I do to secure my date? If you're not able to book a consultation right away, your date can be
 secured with a $100 deposit. You have up to one month prior to the wedding to finalize your design.

Do you offer tastings? Complimentary consultations are done by appointment Mondays through 
 Thursdays. The rest of the week is dedicated to working on wedding cakes for the weekend. 

What should I bring to my consultation?  Your ideas and inspiration photos! 

Do you do groom's cakes?   Absolutely!

Do you make sugar-free or gluten-free cakes?   No, due to the nature of dietary restrictions, a kitchen
 must have special areas designated for those types of cakes and we do not have the space to
 accommodate those needs. 

Am I restricted to one flavor? No, we can do multiple flavors in one cake. However, due to human
 nature, you may need to order extra servings as guests like to try what they see! 

How many cake servings should I order? The typical guideline for wedding cake servings is to take
 the number of guests and multiply it by 80%. (.80) 

Can you make a cake for my outdoor wedding?  Yes. We have done many outdoor weddings.  
 However, if your date is during the summer, special accommodations may need to be made to avoid
 any damage from heat and humidity. 

Should I serve the top tier of my cake or save it for my 1st anniversary?  If stored properly, your top
 tier will still be wonderful on your anniversary. If you prefer, a duplicate top can be made and put in a
 box so that the entire wedding cake can be served from the top to the bottom. Your top tier will be
 conveniently ready to take home.

Do you deliver to other parts of the state?  Yes. I have driven as far as four hours to deliver cakes.
  Charges are based on the mileage.

How is the cake delivered? All cakes are delivered and hand-assembled on-site on your wedding day.

Where do you bake the cakes?  A commercially approved and inspected kitchen in my home. 

Do you rent cake stands? Yes, I have several cake stands to choose from. 

Can I use my own cake stand?  Yes you can. We can make sure the dimensions are correct during
 consultation. 

What are your prices?  Prices vary according to the type of cake and complexity of the design.

Can I pick up my wedding cake?  Very small cakes can be picked up at the risk of the purchaser. 
 Choose your driver carefully!!!!   Make certain that there is an ample, flat, air conditioned area in which
 to place the cake.   I am not responsible for needed repairs due to issues created during travel and set up.
 Once the cake leaves my house, it is the sole responsibility of the owner.

Do you cut the cake? No, I do not provide a cake-cutting service. Check with your caterer or venue. 

When is the final payment due?  Final payment is due two weeks prior to your wedding.
