FFFrequently Asked Questions

Can I have more than one flavor?

     Of course!  You may choose up to 3 flavors for cakes up to 200 servings, and 3+ flavors for 200+ servings.    

Do you deliver?

    All 2-tiered cakes, single cakes and extra servings cake can be picked up by the client, cakes 3 tiers and larger generally require delivery.  Full delivery and set-up fees begin at $45, and can increase based upon additional travel distance required.  

Do you do sheet cakes?  Can I get a small cake for display and a lot of sheet cakes for serving?

   I make 'kitchen cakes' at a lesser price per serving than the display cake. These are tiers of cake instead of single layer sheet cakes that get cut into cubes.  My kitchen cakes are built to the exact same size as the wedding cake/display cake and therefore look absolutely no different when cut and plated.  This makes for a classier slice of cake.  Please refer to the flavors menu for kitchen cake pricing.

  

I'm having a very large wedding, can I get a tiny bridal cake from you for display and good photos, and buy inexpensive sheet cake from a grocery store or member warehouse to serve to my guests?

    To protect the integrity of my brand, I do not allow my work to be supplemented by similar cake/cupcake/sheet product from grocery stores, wholesale member clubs, or a friend or family member.  This is not a negative judgment on the quality of their product. Items I do not normally make, including doughnuts, ethnic heritage and/or religion specific desserts, are welcomed.  This clause is further outlined in all Event Contracts.

Is it safe to put fresh flowers on my cake?

  Absolutely!  (and yes, please do!)  Utilizing fresh floral is one of my favorite ways to accessorize a cake, not to mention a classic and cost effective design choice for the client.  Any floral used for the cake is to be set up by you through your florist, to ensure uniformity of the cake flowers with the centerpieces, bouquets, etc. 

Can I bring in a picture of a cake I found in a magazine/on a website to my cake tasting?

  Definitely!  I don't love replicating other's work verbatim, but it absolutely serves as inspiration and a jumping off point that gives me an idea of the theme and style you're looking to replicate.  Some great information to have handy in preparation of the consultation, are colors of the wedding, estimated guest count, what types of flowers you want or what florist you're using, and any items/figurines/samples being used as design inspiration.

Do I provide the ribbon/bling/accessories for my cake?

    Satin or organza ribbon is used frequently and is accounted for in the base price of cakes, which I pick up at the craft store.  All other accessories, bling ribbons, toppers, brooches, etc are an additional cost, either procured by myself and added to your invoice, or obtained and provided by the client.  Simple items such as toppers can be waiting at the venue for my set-up arrival.  Items incorporated into the design itself will need to be given to me within 1 week of the event.  I will be able to consult with you on what would and wouldn't work best for your cake, as well as preferred vendors..

Can I do a 6-tiered bridal cake all in styrofoam 'dummy' layers, and just purchase undecorated sheet cake from you to serve to my guests?

    I do not provide this service.  Mathematically it does not work out in your favor. Dummy layers as an additional layer to a real cake can be added to emphasize the overall size of the cake, but only if the entirety of the 'real cake' already serves the guest count, i.e. if you want a large 4 tiered cake but are only expecting 40-50 guests.  A decorating fee applies.

What's fondant?  Do I have to use it?

   Fondant is a pliable, rolled sugar dough that is draped over a buttercream-iced cake for a smooth, flawless finish.  It's a medium that allows for more detailed and elaborate decoration on a cake.  When needed, I use a high quality, Swiss-made fondant that is soft, doesn't form a hard shell on the cake, and tastes like marshmallows!  Most cakes can be done in a smooth-iced buttercream, but there are certain designs that lend themselves solely to fondant in order to get the best possible finished product.

What do I do with any cake equipment that isn't disposable?

   Any boards, plates and stands provided by me will have had a separate deposit placed on them, insuring their return.  Return of cake equipment is required within one week of the event for a full return of deposit.   

Do you provide gluten-free desserts?

   I do have gluten-free cake and dessert options, please inquire for more information.

Do you accept credit card payments?

   Yes, the invoice you receive for any order comes with secure credit card payment instructions.
