Frequently Asked Questions
Wedding & Custom Cakes
Each wedding and custom cake is designed especially for you, so there are no set prices. Basic buttercream cakes begin at $8 per serving and basic fondant cakes at $9 per serving. Basic cakes have minimal decoration. Final pricing for all cakes is dependent upon the complexity of design, flavors, servings, and delivery/setup fee.
PLEASE NOTE: I currently have a minimum price of $500 on all cake orders. I do not create naked or semi-naked cakes or cupcakes.
Structured Cakes & 3D Cakes
My prices may be higher than the box stores and bakeries. The difference is in the taste.
As the saying goes…Cheap Cake Isn’t Good, Good Cake Isn’t Cheap!
Wedding Consultations & Tastings
My charge for a consultation is $135.00 (payable in advance), to include tasting samples. $75.00 of this fee will be applied toward your cake order.
Consultation tastings are for clients ordering 75 servings or more. I am a home-based business so consultations are strictly by appointment.
To ensure your wedding cake receives the attention it deserves I take on a limited number of wedding
or other celebration commissions each month, so it is recommended you contact me as soon as possible.
Standard wedding cake serving guidelines for caterers are 1” wide x 2” deep and 4” tall.
Most of my cakes are taller than the standard industry guidelines,
usually between 5” to 6” dependent on the cake design.

At the time of booking, along with a signed contract to officially save your date,
a 50% non-refundable retainer will be due.
Final payment is due 3 weeks (21 days) before your event date. If you book within the 21 day period, full payment is due at that time. Bookings are on a first come, first paid basis.
All dates are considered open until the signed contract & 50% non-refundable retainer have been received.
Cake Stands for Rent
Once a cake has been picked up by you or a designated party, it is considered “accepted”.
The cake is the responsibility of the customer once it leaves my cake studio.
Creating a joyful memory for you & your loved ones is priceless!
