Can i order my wedding cake from you and a groom's cake from someone else?
No, this is a quality control issue and since we cannot guarantee the quality of someone else's
work we have a strict policy against the mixing of cake vendors, including cupcakes. The cake is all cut and served in the end and there is no differentiating what slice came from whom.
If someone was to get sick or simply not enjoy the taste/look of the secondary
vendor's cake they would not necessarily know that it wasn't provided by the same company
that you hired to create your wedding cake
What kind of deposit do you require for orders?
wedding cakes and cupcakes - a 25% non-refundable deposit is required to hold your date,
please note your date CANNOT BE HELD without a deposit. orders under $250.00 are due
in-full at the time of booking with the full balance due 30 days prior to the date of your wedding
all other forget me not baking orders - a 50% deposit is required on all orders over $250.00 and the full balance is due 2 weeks prior to the date of your event
How many cakes do you schedule for a typical weekend?
We try to limit the number of cakes per weekend to 3, scheduling too many cakes would not allow for the time and attention to detail that is required to make each cake a masterpiece
Which are you most popular flavors?
Vanilla with strawberry cream and chocolate chocolate are at the top of the list.
Other very popular combinations are chocolate with raspberry filling, carrot with cream
cheese filling, red velvet with chocolate ganache, lemon with blueberry filling and our 5 flavor pound cake
