Set Your Date

1

Cake doesn't have to be the first thing you check off your list, but it's a fun to do.  The general rule we give is 5-6 months in advance.  May, June, September or October are busiest for us we recommend calling even sooner, these seasons book up quickly.  Some people like to do a meeting a year in advance to taste flavors that are in season.  At this time we need a minimum of 4 notice weeks for weddings of 100 servings ($300) or more.  (If you're eloping or having an intimate gathering- less than 100 servings- we also offer cakes for these celebrations, see our Cakes + Cupcakes page for details )

Take a Look

Browse through our portfolio of wedding cakes here and check our Facebook Page and Instagram for ideas of the kinds of cakes we can create.  Also check out the Cakes + Cupcakes page of the website to start thinking about the kinds of flavor(s) that you'd like on you special day.  We do use exclusively fruit and vegetable based food coloring.  (If you're interested in metallics, we do make an exception for fondant wedding cakes.)

Also take a look through our contract and pricing.  Our wedding cakes start out at $3.50 per serving.  If you know you'd like a fondant finish, those cakes start at $4.50 per serving.  And if you're thinking of a dessert bar and cake, we'd suggest starting at $6 per guest.

Schedule a Visit

Yes, for cakes of 100 servings (orders of $300) or more the inital tasting is free (4 people max). Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions we need to know about.   To schedule an appointment, please email or call.  We generally schedule tastings between 1pm and 3pm Tuesday- Saturday.

Eat Cake + Chat

For your tasting and consultation in our shop, you'll get a chance to sample flavors from an assortment of the cupcakes we have on hand.  We'll work with you to come up with a cake and/or desserts package and design that fits the celebration you.  We'll also talk through specific pricing based on your design, flavor and item preferences.  Looking for an original design for your unique celebration?  Our decorator can work with you to create a custom cake too.

Reserve Your Date

To secure your date, we'll need a completed, signed contract, and a 50% deposit.  You can make changes up to 4 weeks from your wedding, so don't worry if you're on the fence about flavors, design, the exact delivery time or the number of servings.   For your deposit we accept cash, checks or credit cards.  We can even send you a digital invoice through Square (register) that you can pay online if you'd prefer.

Confirm Details

A month before your wedding day, we'll reach out to confirm all the final details.  We'll need to know the final design, flavors, number of servings, as well as the delivery time range (a hour window minimum), and if you'll have a cake topper or will be using a cake stand.  Feel free to reach out if you have the details sooner.

Final Payment

Final payment based on any changes made at the 4 week marker is due two weeks from you wedding.  We'll send you a digital invoice that you can pay online or that you can refer when mailing a check or dropping by with a payment.

On the day of your wedding, we'll delivery the cake and any other goodies you've ordered to your venue for you and your guests to enjoy!
