FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ~ BRIDE AND GROOM’S CAKES
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY WEDDING CAKE(S)?
If your wedding date and venue are in place, we can begin to design your cake(s). Most clients come in around six to nine months before their wedding. Our calendar can fill up fast especially for early summer and fall, however we value your interest in working with us and we will always do our best to accommodate you.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF ORDERING A CAKE(S)?
We suggest starting with a cake consultation where you will sit down with a cake designer, try some flavors, share your ideas and have the opportunity to book your date. We have many cake dummies and photographs of previous work in our store and reviews/endorsements of our services can be found on www.weddingwire.com. To officially book your date, we need to get a 25% deposit with the remaining balance due one month prior to the wedding date.
For events other than weddings we often work by phone and email to finalize a design and quote, and of course we are more than happy to work by email if you are planning your wedding from out of state.
HOW TO SETUP AN APPOINTMENT?
To arrange a cake consultation or to receive further information please contact us at 469.563.9471 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW MUCH WILL MY CAKE COST?
The final price will depend on serving numbers and the complexity of details chosen, and each cake is quoted on an individual basis. The base price is $5.25 per serving so $525.00 for a wedding cake that serves 100 guests.
CAN I HAVE A DIFFERENT FLAVORS IN EACH TIER?
Yes! You can have as many flavors as you have tiers.
WILL YOU DELIVER MY CAKE?
We offer personal delivery and set-up as part of our wedding service and it is charged at a flat rate depending on the location.
CAN I HAVE FOAM “DUMMY” TIERS?
Foam is most useful if you love the idea of a really large cake, but only have a modest guest list. However as most of the cost is in the decorating, a five-tier cake with only three tiers of real cake will still be closer to a five tier cake price than a three-tier price.
I HAVE A PHOTO OF CAKE I WANT, CAN YOU COPY IT?
You are welcome to bring in photos of cakes from other designers as part of an inspiration board and we can design something similar, however we will not recreate other people’s work. We also ask for others to respect the copyright ownership of our original cake designs.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
To help us guide you in choosing the perfect design for your occasion, we ask you to bring along anything that might help us guide you towards the perfect design, such as a swatch of lace from the wedding dress, a picture of the chosen flowers or color samples, invitations, or inspiration boards. This will all assist us in visualizing the look of your day and designing a cake to match.
If you are planning on a groom’s cake, please bring ideas for his cake as well. We have idea books in our store, on our website, and on our social media sites.
