Policies & Frequently Asked questions

Tasting consultation

If you want to taste and discuss options for your custom cake, we recommend scheduling a tasting consultation. Our tasting consultation appointments are approximately 45 minutes.  The tasting includes two servings.  You will pre-select three cake flavors and three filling flavors to sample during the tasting and then you will work with a decorator to create a design.  The fee for a Tasting Consultation is $50 and we will apply $25 towards your order. 

How much does a custom cake cost

To develop a quote for your custom cake you will need to know the number of servings to begin. Every custom cake is individually priced.  For reference, buttercream cakes start at $3.00 per serving and Fondant cakes start at $5.00 per serving.  Sculpted cakes, figures, flowers and decorating time are all extra.   You can complete a Custom Cake Inquiry online.

Dietary restrictions

We are not a nut free kitchen.  Gluten free cakes are available by special order.
