Questions? Here are the answer! If you have a question that is not answered below please feel free to send me an email.
Q ~ WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY CAKE ?
Wedding Cakes: should be booked 4-6 months in advance. I do my best to accommodate all orders however in order to allow me the time to create and ability to save your date. For weddings taking place May - September I recommend booking your cake as soon as possible as those weekend tend to fill up fast. Currently booking 2018 - 2019 weddings. Of course their are special situations that do arise and short planning is needed, just contact me and lets see what we can do.
Celebration/Event Cakes & Cupcakes: for celebration/event cakes and cupcakes 4 - 6 weeks in advance is all that is needed.
Q ~ HOW MUCH DO YOUR CAKES COST ?
Each of my cake are custom designed with each client in mind paying close attention to detail and any special request they may have. With that being said many factors are involved in determining the cost of the cake as every cake is custom and priced individually. Cake pricing factors include such things as number of servings, cake flavors, intricacy of design, number of tiers and so on. Cakes are priced per serving ranging from $6.00- $15.00

Q ~ WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY CONSULTATION ?
During your consultation we will work together designing a cake that embodies your vision on your day. Please bring anything that you would like to incorporate into your design or is inspiration behind your vision. We can pull inspiration from dress, invitations, fabric/color swatches, venue, centerpieces, décor, theme, floral bouquets anything that will assist in visualizing the look of your day and designing the cake to match
Q ~ I HAVE A PHOTO OF A CAKE I LOVE, CAN YOU RECREATE IT ?
If you saw a photo of a cake you liked please bring it with you to the consultation. I will use that photo as a source of inspiration and feel for your cake and work with you to design something that speaks to you but not replicate it exactly. I believe each client should have a custom cake designed for them. Your cake should be special for you!
