Is my date available?

This is the first question you should ask your baker! Months like April, May and October fill up fast.

How far in advance do you make the cake?

All of our delicious, from scratch recipes are typically made cakes no more than two days before your event.

How far in advance should I order my cake?

We prefer at least two week’s notice, but if that’s not possible, we will do our best to make it happen! Wedding cakes need more than 2 weeks – contact me as soon as you have your date!

What type of ingredients do you use in your recipes? Are your recipes from scratch?

All of our products are made with quality ingredients like real butter, Madagascar vanilla, and fresh fruit in all recipes.

Do you offer organic, dairy or gluten-free products?

Most definitely!

How long have you been in business?

We’ve been in business since 2012 and decorating cakes since 2004.

Are you a licensed business?

Yes.

Are you professionally trained or self-taught?

I’m self-taught, and I’ve been decorating since 2004.

What are your specialties?

I’m a wiz at smoothing a beautiful buttercream cake and crafting handmade edible flowers. I love incorporating my skills as an oil painter, and creating 2D characters.

Do you create your own custom designs?

Yes! In fact, I encourage it! Caking outside the box isn’t just my tagline. I want all our customers to personalize their cakes to make them their own!

How far do you deliver, and what do you charge for delivery?

We’ve traveled as far as 250 miles for a cake. Though we don’t recommend it, it can be done. Our delivery fees start at $10 in Cape and charged per mile outside of city limits.

Do you cover your cakes with fondant or buttercream?

We prefer to cover cakes in buttercream; however, we often use fondant to decorate buttercream cakes.

Do you have price minimum?

We do not have a price minimum.

Do I have to put money down to save the date?

Of all weddings and large parties, we require a save the date deposit of $100. This fee goes toward your large order and is non-refundable.

How many payments are there? When are they due?

For all large orders and wedding cakes, your payments are split into two payments. Half of your payment is due one month prior to your date (this includes your $100 date reservation) and is non-refundable. The second payment is due two weeks before delivery. For small orders, payments can be made via cash, check or card on the day of delivery.

What is your policy of cancellations?

For parties that require date reservation, a 50% deposit is required and due one month prior to the date and is non-refundable. If you cancel or reschedule before the one month, you will forfeit your $100 date reservation payment. You’ll have up to 12 months to reschedule your party and retain the rest of your 50% deposit.

How many wedding cakes do you book in a year?

It’s been growing every year, but we’ve booked as many as 35-40 weddings in a single year, and even more birthdays, showers, and other events.

I have a family recipe that I love! Could you make it for my special day?

Of course!

How do you price your cakes?

We price cakes by the serving. We do offer free estimates and give you 3-6 different ways we could approach your design and budget.

Do you offer taste testings?

Yes! We offer a full consultation for 4 people for $50. For more information, check out the Weddings page!

Who cuts the cake?

If we’re available, we’re happy to cut and serve your cake! We do charge a $50 fee. We’re always happy to educate your cake cutters on how to properly cut and serve your large cake.

How do you recommend saving the top tier of your wedding cake?

We don’t! We offer all wedding clients a chance to save a few bucks on their cake. We create a small top tier replica of your wedding cake for your first year. This way, you’re not denied a tasty beautiful treat for tradition’s sake!

Please note – products are made in a facility that uses wheat, soy, treenuts, and dairy.
