The Wedding Cake
Wedding cakes have a three-tier minimum and prices range from $7.00 to $9.00 per serving and are based on the complexity of the design. Designs that have intricate details, such as ruffles, beading, detailed piping, and gum paste flowers are usually priced from $7.50 to $9.00 per serving.
For example, if you expect 100 guests, plan no less than $800.00 (and up to $2000.00 depending on the design) when creating your cake budget. Simple buttercream cakes with fresh flowers have a flat fee of $7.00 per serving. Side cakes (sheet cake) come in handy if you prefer a smaller center-piece cake but have a large guest list. Sheet cakes are $3.50 per slice and are delivered in half sheets. Sorry, I do not offer cupcakes.
The Groom's Cake
Groom cakes have a minimum order of $150.00. This can be ordered as a tiered cake with sheet cake or sheet cake on its own. Groom cake prices range from $7.00 to $10.00 per serving and are based on the complexity of the design. Sheet cake pricing is $3.50 per serving. A tasting consultation is recommended for parties 50 and up.
WHERE TO START?
I know what I want my cake to look like? How do I contact you?
Welcome! I encourage you to fill out the quote page so that I can get the date of your wedding, the number of guests you will be expecting, and details of your cake that you have been envisioning for your big day!
Okay, I've just received my quote for my wedding cake. I want to book a tasting consultation? Where do I start?
I would love to set up a tasting consultation with you! The tasting fee is $30.00 and will serve up to 4 guests. I suggest scheduling a tasting 6 months to a year before your celebration. Once you have set the date, I will contact you via email and establish the time of day and location.
What should I bring to my tasting?
Bring Items that inspire you, such as; pictures that you've seen in a magazine or on the internet (Pinterest is a great source for ideas!), color swatches, florals chosen by your florist, your wedding invitations, or any personalized details. These details will help me understand your style and design elements that attract you. If you have pictures of a cake that you have sent me or have brought in, what I will do is ask what details attract you and build a design that caters to your style, rather than making a carbon copy of a cake.
What should I expect during my tasting?
During your tasting, I will talk about your favorite cake flavors, the number of servings based on your guest count, and design details. If you received a quote prior to your tasting, we will discuss what is included in the price that you were quoted. If you would like to book your cake the day of, a 50% non-refundable down payment is required at that time. If you have not received a quote prior to your tasting, I will have a quote ready for you the day of your tasting.
You have an option of booking your cake the day of or I can send you the contract via email; although time is of the essence and I only book one wedding per date. After I have received your deposit and depending on how detailed the design, I will make one to three sketches based on the designs that you are interested in. These will be sent via email for your approval. This will give you a chance to see what your cake will look like on your big day. Once you have decided on a design, I will make a copy. This is the design I will be basing your cake on.
What should I expect after I paid my deposit? Two weeks before your wedding, I will follow up with you on your guest numbers, details on the venue, and if there are any changes to your order. This could be the guest number has increased or decreased, which means more or less cake, changes in decor, or flavor. The final payment is due two weeks prior. However, the final payment can change if the cake is deducted or added based on your final guest count. I will send you an invoice with the new balance if there are any changes.
