Cake Consult FAQ's
WHERE DO I FIND INSPIRATION FOR MY CAKE?
Inspiration is everywhere. Good places to start looking would be our website, Pinterest, GOOGLE, and Instagram.
We recommend searching key that fit within your wedding style like: Bold wedding cake, Modern wedding cake, rustic wedding cake, gold wedding cake, intricate wedding cake, Geometric wedding cake.... I'm sure you get the idea.
Bringing in sample photos of the table settings, floral arrangement or invites. All of these things have potential to strike inspiration for cake designs.
We love creating. We’re artists, we love a challenge, and we love finding inspiration in anything and everything and using that inspiration to design a beautiful and unique cake especially for you. That being said, if you find the perfect cake design and want it recreated, we love to do that, too! Just keep in mind that the product may have artistic differences from the original (just think: the Mona Lisa would probably look different if Van Gogh painted it instead of Da Vinci).
WHEN CAN I SCHEDULE A CAKE TASTING?
As soon as you are ready! We suggest reaching out to get some general info about pricing and date availability before scheduling a tasting/consultation with our team. We are appointment based only.
HOW LONG SHOULD I EXPECT MY CAKE TASTING TO TAKE?
Typically cake tastings take between 45 minutes to 1 hour.
CAN YOU PRICE QUOTE A CAKE FOR US BEFORE WE COME IN FOR A TASTING?
Yes, we can provide a price quote for just about any cake via email.
HOW MUCH DOES A CAKE TASTING COST?
Our cake tastings are FREE of charge!
HOW MANY PEOPLE SHOULD WE BRING TO OUR TASTING?
We recommend keeping a cake tasting intimate. They typically work best with 2-4 guests.
WHAT IF WE’RE TOO BUSY OR LIVE OUT OF TOWN, AND CAN’T MAKE IT IN FOR A CONSULTATION?
No problem! We can email or chat over the phone about what you’re interested in, build an invoice based on that conversation and email it to you. Assuming you’re also interested in tasting cake flavors (which is the best part!), we can prepare a tasting on a to-go basis to be picked up at your convenience - we just need a couple of days’ notice to get your flavors together!
WHEN SHOULD WE PLACE OUR DEPOSIT?
You can never book too early, and should plan to pay the deposit as soon as you know you want to book with us! We recommend placing your deposit about 5 to 9 months out from your wedding date in order to have the best chance of receiving a spot on our calendar. After that, we may start to fill up and cannot guarantee availability! But don’t let that time frame discourage you; even if your wedding is coming up fast, we may still be able to create amazing desserts for you. Just ask!
HOW MUCH CAKE SHOULD WE HAVE FOR OUR PARTY?
This is a tough one, and depends on a lot of factors. Are you having a large dinner, drinks, or appetizers? Are your family and friends really big sweets fans, or do they tend to favor savory food? Are you considering another vendor to provide an alternative dessert, like ice cream or donuts?
We typically recommend providing enough cake for everyone to have a slice, and even suggest providing some extra servings if you’re having multiple flavors. If you’re offering a dessert table and cake is just one type of dessert, you probably don’t need to serve it to everyone. These are all things we can chat with you about in your consultation and make a recommendation on that’s tailored to you and your guests!
HOW MUCH IS A WEDDING CAKE?
Wedding cakes fall into a very wide range of prices, depending on size and design. Our cakes can vary between $4-6 per serving, and design typically adds to the total. Design work can range drastically in price, and so the best way to get a quote is to ask us!
CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE FOOD ALLERGIES AND/OR OTHER DIETARY RESTRICTIONS?
We offer a limited menu in gluten free OR vegan options. We do our best to accommodate food allergies, however we do work with 6 of the top 8 food allergens (milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and wheat) and cannot guarantee that there will not be cross-contamination.
