COMMON QUESTIONS


What are you hours of operation?

We are by appointment only, but please feel free to give us a call during business hours, Tues-Sat 9:00 am to 6:00 pm or email us any time. Closed Sunday and Monday.


Are your cakes baked fresh?

We believe in fresh, moist cakes! Our cakes are custom designed and baked for every order. We bake fresh every week, so your cake will be moist and delicious for your wedding day.


When should I reserve my wedding cake?

We accept a limited number of cakes each weekend so that we can guarantee individual attention for each wedding. Many brides book their cakes 6-8 months in advance to ensure their wedding date is still available. Call as soon as possible to reserve your date!


What is fondant? I heard it tastes terrible.

Fondant is a sugar dough that creates an elegant and flawlessly smooth surface. Many people are only familiar with one particular brand of fondant, which does taste really bad. Our fondant is homemade using melted white chocolate and tastes delicious.


If we get a fake cake for display and serve sheet cakes is it cheaper than having a real wedding cake?

In short, no. Most of the cost of a wedding cake is in the time and artistic technique required to decorate, which is the same whether using styrofoam or cake. The cost of the styrofoam used in “display” cakes is the same as the ingredients for a real cake anyway, but if using a fake cake we still need to buy ingredients for the real sheet cakes and then spend even more time decorating them. So in actuality you will be paying more for the “fake cake/sheet cakes” method than by ordering the necessary number of servings in your wedding cake.


Can we get more than one flavor of cake, or does the whole cake have to be the same?

You can mix and match any flavors on our menu at no additional charge. Every tier can be a different flavor if you would like. Be aware that if you choose multiple flavors you may wish to order more servings than you were expecting, as many guests may want to have a second piece of cake in a different flavor.


Can I match the colors of my wedding cake to the rest of the decorations?

Absolutely. It is helpful if you bring a swatch of fabric to the cake tasting so that we can match it as closely as possible. You can also incorporate real ribbon into the wedding cake design which will allow you to match your colors perfectly.


Can I pay with a credit card?

We accept VISA, Master Card, American Express, and Discover via PayPal. We will send you an email invoice that you can easily pay on PayPal's secure web site.
