How much is this going to cost me?
Our minimum order price is $100. Standard cake prices start with a base cost per serving, and go up depending on the design and details. Shaped and 3D cakes are not priced by serving, and have a minimum starting price of $150.00.

Look for the dollar bill icon in the Cake Gallery to get a price range for each cake. $=$60 or less (Smash Cakes only); $$=$60-100; $$$=$100-$300; $$$$=More than $300.

What is a Base Price?
Our base price is a minimum serving price, and what we consider very minimal decorations such as these examples:

  • Icing borders and simple designs.
  • A buttercream message.

Anything after the base price is calculated, will be based on something similar to these examples:

  • Our time decorating your cake, based upon how complicated your design is.
  • Any supplies that may be required to accomplish your design.
  • A support system that keeps your cake upright.

How far ahead should I place my order?
We require two weeks notice for all cake orders. This allows us time to order any necessary supplies for your cake and to make any specialty decorations in advance.

If you try to order later than two weeks, we can not guarantee date availability. With less than two weeks notice we may not be able to create your design as sometimes certain designs require toppers and handmade items be made in advance, and supplies to be ordered and shipped in.

Wedding cakes should be booked as soon as possible to reserve the date. Traditional wedding season (May-October) is especially busy, so don’t delay!

Do you require a deposit?
Orders require a 50 percent non-refundable deposit upon completion of your order form that we will email to you. We require a minimum of two weeks notice on all orders. Orders placed with less than two weeks notice require payment in full. If you have paid in full and decide to cancel, only 50 percent will be refunded. Wedding cakes require payment made in full 2 weeks prior to the wedding reception date.
Can I show you my ideas?
We love to work closely with our customers to get the custom designs they want. If you have an inspiration cake photo (or Pinterest board!) or a specific design in mind, please feel free to include that when ordering. We will not duplicate other decorators’ designs, but will do our best to keep the essence of the design you want.
Do you offer cake tastings?
We only offer tastings for wedding cakes and very large cake orders. Tastings are $50 in advance. Tastings include up to three flavors of cake along with our freshly-made buttercream. Additional flavors, icings, or fillings are $5 each. Tastings should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.
What flavors do you offer?
We are open to just about any flavor you can think of, but our standard – and most popular – flavors are the following:

  • White Velvet
  • Double Dark Chocolate
  • Red Velvet
  • Strawberry
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Marble (White Velvet and Chocolate)
  • Cappuccino
  • Lemon

*Some cake flavors and fillings may be subject to an additional charge

Where are you located?
