Wedding Cake Frequently Asked Questions

What should we bring for a consultation/ tasting?
It’s helpful to bring some design images or reference photos to help us create the cake of your dreams. If you have them, please bring color swatches (i.e. ribbon or paint chips), lace, or wedding invitations. Anything you’d like incorporated into the cake will be helpful to see. The first consultation is free, so the more we can accomplish during that time the better!

Can you copy a picture from a magazine or Pinterest?
Absolutely!! We’d love to see your ideas – creating your vision is most important to us.

How soon do I need to order my cake?
We typically book 2-3 months in advance; May, June, July, and August fill quickly, so it's best to order as early as you can for summer events. A non-refundable $100 deposit will secure your date. The balance is due 4 weeks before the wedding.

Do the prices include fresh flowers?
No. We do recommend that you order fresh flowers for the cake through your florist. You will secure the best price that way, and the flowers will match the event decor. We will joyfully place them on the cake for you when we set it up, if you choose. Additionally, we can create any handmade fondant, buttercream, or sugar paste flowers or decorations that you desire.

Which are your most popular flavors?
Lemon Buttermilk and Black Magic Chocolate are currently our most popular – this changes across seasons and industry trends. Our cakes are moist and flavorful, always made fresh with the very best ingredients.

May I choose more than one flavor?
Yes. You may have a different flavor for each tier. You may also have additional kitchen cakes in different flavors, or add a few vegan or dairy free cupcakes to satisfy diet-restricted guests.

What size cake will I need?
At your tasting - or over the phone - we will be happy to do the math, walking you through the round and square tier sizes and corresponding slice counts to ensure that everyone enjoys cake!

Other things to consider: 

  • How big of an impact do you want your cake to make?
  • How large is the area where it will be displayed?
  • Is the cake - design or flavor or both - high on your priority list to make a great day?
  • Will the cake be a grand centerpiece at the event?
  • Will the cake be displayed outdoors in the summer? Protected from the sun?
