I get alot of questions from clients, aspiring cake artists, and just admirers of the art of cake design.While this post is long overdue here’s the answers to the most FAQ about me.
(click the question for the answer)
Do you ship cakes?
Unfortunately, we do not ship cakes. However, we are in the works of shipping our cupcakes.
How far in advance should I place a birthday cake order?
Any special occasion cakes should be ordered at least 1 week before your occasion.However availability is not guaranteed.The more lead time you give us, the more likely your order is guaranteed for the date you want. Calling in telling us you want a cake for a certain date DOES NOT hold your date.Placing a order with a deposit is the ONLY way to hold your date.
Can I make changes to my birthday cake once the order has been placed?
Changes and cancellations can be made up until 7 days before the cake is to be picked up. Any changes to birthday cakes after that depends on the actual design.
How far ahead should I book my wedding cake?
We suggest you book your cake at least 4 weeks before your occasion. However,the early the better!
Do you require a deposit and, if so, how much is the deposit?
Yes, deposits are 50% of your total cost
Can I pay my deposit over the phone?
What do I need to bring with me to my cake consultation?
The most important thing is to have an idea of what you want. Also, occasion date, *set up time,approximate number of guests, where the party will be held and directions to your venue, and any other ideas or details you would like included in your cake design such as color swatches, invitations, details from your wedding dress, etc.
If you have a wedding planner,it is also very important to have all of their contact information available at the time of the contract signing.
*Setup time: It is VERY important that you have your set up time together.Once you have your set up time discuss and confirm it with your wedding planner or anyone in charge of setting up your venue.Once you sign the contract for a certain time,that will be the time we deliver/set up.
Is there a fee for a consultation?
Consultations are free
For Tastings we let you pick out 6 cupcake flavors of your choice and once you decide to go with us the price of the 6 cupcakes are deducted from your contract.
What is the price range for specialty and wedding cakes?
Any 2 dimensional specialty cake will start at $127.50; any 3 dimensional specialty cake will start at $212; 2 tiered cakes start at $162.50; wedding cakes start at $3.25 per serving. (These are base prices only.The actual prices are based on amount of detail added on to your cake)
