Frequently Asked Questions...

 

Do you offer cake tastings?

Cake tasting boxes are available for wedding clients. The boxes are $25.00 and include 5 samples of our most popular cake flavors. Tasting boxes are available on select dates. When you book your wedding cake, the tasting box fee will be deducted from the total price of your cake.

What kind of frosting do you use?

The majority of our cakes are iced with swiss meringue buttercream. This type of buttercream is very light and truly buttery, with a perfectly silky smooth texture. A meringue buttercream is very different from a typical American buttercream (think grocery store cakes), in that it does NOT contain confectioners' sugar. However, if a very sweet traditional buttercream is what you're after (sometimes this is a better option for a child's cake/cupcakes), let me know, no judgement :)

Do the flavors I choose affect what my cake will look like?

If you choose a semi-naked finish for your cake, then yes, you will see the cake layers poking through the buttercream. In the case of a full buttercream finish, the cake will not show, so feel free to choose any flavor you desire! As for the filling, this never shows on the outside of the cake, even with a semi-naked finish.

Do you offer allergy-friendly cakes?

We do not currently offer cakes free of common allergens (dairy, gluten, eggs, nuts), as all of these ingredients are present in our kitchen.

How much notice do you need for a cake order?

The more notice the better, but we've been known to help out our clients with last minute cakes! It's best to book an event cake (birthday, anniversary, shower) at least two weeks in advance, and a wedding cake at least 4 months in advance to secure your date. In order to book a wedding cake, a 50% deposit is required to reserve your date. Your wedding cake is NOT considered booked until this deposit is received. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your wedding date.

How do I store and serve my cake?

Our cakes should be refrigerated prior to your event, and brought to room temperature at least an hour before serving for best flavor and texture. All inedible items (fresh flowers, toppers, etc) should be removed prior to serving. Our cakes should be cut into 1"x2" rectangular portions. Leftover cake may be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated or frozen for enjoying later :)

How do I pay for my cake?

We accept payments in check and cash, and through PayPal and Venmo.
