These are some of the most common questions we hear.
But, if you are wondering about anything else, please don't hesitate to ask!
We offer consultations, take-home tastings, cake design, digital invoicing, orders to pick-up,
delivery (yes, we go to your venue!), set-up and stand rental
How much will this cake cost?
We are a completely custom shop, so, it varies. Tiered pricing for weddings starts at $4.50 per serving, and there are art charges that apply that are dependent upon what kind of design you want. You can always send us an image, with how many tiers you want, or how many it should feed, and we would be happy to quote it out for you!
How many servings should I order?
There are a lot of factors that go into the number of servings you need: what kind of dinner are you having?, are you ordering mini or full size?, how many options do you want your guests to have? But overall, you know your family and friends better than we do.
We will certainly help you make the decision that fits all of those, and your budget, best.

What about cake cutting fees?
A lot of venues and caterers have pretty hefty cake cutting fees for cakes you have brought in, they want you to choose their cakes. We have found on many occasions that even with an extremely high cake cutting fee added in, we come out to be a more affordable option. Don't let them scare you into using them without doing the math - or asking us to do it for you :)
What do I do for special diets?
We have options available for nut allergies, gluten free, and vegan diets - cupcakes or cookies.
Many people choose to put them behind the bar, some want them out with the other desserts for people to grab as needed. We can certainly talk you through what we've seen and help you decide what is best for your guests!
